    Tanto help red

    Yep, looks like you are right. 天正九 = 1581 So it couldn`t be Ichihara Nagamitsu. 長光道 can be read as Nagamitsu Michi. This fragment looks like 光定 - Kōjō (?)

    Looks like this sword was made by Ichihara Nagamitsu (1886-1960). See https://www.japaneseswordindex.com/naga.htm 長光道 where 長光 - Nagamitsu 道 - most likely from 剣道 - kendō/way of the sword

    How to read Japanese certificates masterclass ! !

    This is because there is no such thing as "bravery level". 勲三等功五級 , where 勲 = merit = sacred treasure or rising sun order 功 = meritous service/deed (in fact 功 is simply an alternative form of 勲) = golden kite order. as for 等 = 級 = grade/class

    Manchukuo Empire: Enthronement Commemorative Medal

    And this medal without ribbon was sold for190 dollars (actually pretty high price for a medal in such condition). So, as mentioned previously, this medal not realy that rare and its not really that pricey,

    Manchukuo Empire: Enthronement Commemorative Medal

    "Quite a high price" for a what? That is the question. For a medal that has 4 of 5 on scarcity scale? Rare manchukou medals gonna cost you thousands. By the way, what makes you think that a "fair price" for this "rarity" is 200 euros or even 300? Without the box it will be more like 200 dollars or less. For example this set of medals was sold for 300 dollars.
