  1. Help needed - japan badge

    Looks like a prize in 民謡 - folk song festival.
  2. Both orders were issued somewhere around 1970s.
  3. Mint mark M – timing analysis

    It is not the thread but another rising sun with M mark inside the case with pseudo early inscription I was referring to
  4. Mint mark M – timing analysis

    This style of inscriptions was in use until mid 30s. + Don`t forget that mint didn`t manufacture award cases. I would say that this set came from second half of 20s (but no guarantees of course) Rossette is from 1936 +period. I think you gonna like this thread Best, Nick
