About this blog

Hello to all,

I am a new young on this site. I am a French collector of Japanese medals. I shall like showing you a recent acquisition. It is a decoration of 7è class of the sacred treasure given to a police officer in charge of the safety of prince Hiro Hito (not still emperor) during its visit in Paris (visit of the Eiffel Tower and meeting with Gustave Eiffel, visit of "les Invalides", "Le Louvre" and  the airport of "Le Bourget", etc. ... on June 2nd, 1921.

This police officer was in charge of the protection of the prince during its visit and he received this decoration a few days after its départure
The decoration has hallmark "t" and the central mirror is rather wide like epoch "Taisho

Unfortunately I cannot translate the document in kanji and I shall like knowing if it is mentioned the motive for the delivery of medal....... if somebody can help me !!!!

Thank you to the one who will be kind enough to inform me
Cordially

Hello to all


I am a new young on this site.

I am French and collector of Japanese medals.
I have just purchased a set : medal of 7è class of the order of the sacred treasure with its diploma and the translation by the embassy of Japan.
This decoration was given to a police officer asked to assure of the protection of prince Hiro Hito (not still emperor) during his visit in Paris June 2nd, 1921.

(Visit of the Eiffel Tower and meeting with Gustave Eiffel, visit of "Le Louvre", "Les Invalides" and the military airport of the Bourget.)

This police officer was decorated a few days after the visit of Hiro Hito June 7th, 1921.

I do not know how to read the characters Kanji and I shall like knowing if it is mentioned in the diploma the motive for the delivery of this decoration.
 

Big thanks to the one who will be kind enough to answer and help me

Cordially
