Attached is a photo of some unusual characters I found. The last kanji seems to a mirrored version of 伍。I have no clue what this means, can't find it in any dictionary either.

It's definitely not oriented correctly. The embroidery is depicted on the wrong side.
Could it be Chinese?

Even if you mirror it, only the last kanji makes sense. Might be chinese, I'm not sure! Just wanted to check if these are archaic/discontinued forms and actually japanese

I tried several variations of running this through Google Images, and I'm not finding anything. I kind of wonder if they're just made-up nonsense.

Whatever it is, it's not kanji. They're not even composed of the same radicals kanji are.

It's neither Japanese nor Chinese.
