  10. certificate with box

    Probably. Nope. In the center 号外官報 - Official Gazette Around the perimeter 頁二一 - Page 21 + October 2nd, 1906 Best. Nick
  11. Rppc - Naval Barracks (c.1910)

    The card is undated. I`d say "1910s" sounds about right. Regards, Nick

  17. Pin/clips for the Collar of the Chrysanthemum

    Unfortunately, no dates and no additional info about regulation for these devices. Author simply describes the pictures. First picture 天皇陛下が大勲位花章頸飾を下げる際に使 用した肩章の菊花紋章は、頸飾章がず落ちないため の特株な仕掛けがしてあつた。 Second 左2個が八ネ入りの菊花紋章。 中央のボタンのよぅなものが用途不明のもの The text under 玉肩章の下にり僭 込んでいるも のが見 ... ==== He is thinking that these were the special stock.

  20. Pin/clips for the Collar of the Chrysanthemum

    Good luck.
  21. Pin/clips for the Collar of the Chrysanthemum

    Take a good look at the epollet. Studio or no studio - there is only one link. So they doctored the epollet too? Now, regarding to what the book suggests. It suggests that there are several types of clips. Larger one for the whole chain (?) smaller for the half chain (?). Unfortunately the quality of image is too low (at least for me) to read the inscriptions.
  22. Pin/clips for the Collar of the Chrysanthemum

    You better take a look at this photo. Only half of the collar. So they could start using clips becase of this
