  2. 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,
  3. 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.

    Nonsence For example https://www.jauce.com/auction/h302260891 http://buyee.jp/item/yahoo/auction/e264365160?lang=chs https://www.jauce.com/auction/k302696760 https://buyee.jp/item/yahoo/auction/o223156168?lang=chs Etc, etc, etc... It certainly doesn't look that rare.

  6. Manchukuo Empire: Enthronement Commemorative Medal

    According to the statute this medal was awarded to those who were invited to Enthronement or performed official duties during Enthronement. Also prime minister office could award anybody at its own discretion. The exact number is not known (as per today), but at least 16 000 were issued. Quite likely the total number is much higher . It`s not very rare. It was made by japan mint. You will find its marks at the rim.

    It was issued to the member of some unidentifiable martial club for participation in Kaigeiko. These are not very rare.

  10. Mint mark M – timing analysis

    Let’s go back to the question of mint marks (to catch up with the beginning of our discussion you should go to http://gmic.co.uk/index.php/topic/51243-order-of-the-sacred-treasure) and mark M in particular. Allow me to remind you that according to Dieter hypothesis mark M was created in 1929 and was in use only for a short period of time. Osaka mint used this mark as proof of identity (this issue became especially important after medal scandal). That’s why we couldn’t find mark M on all specimens from 30s and first half of 40s. And that’s why we couldn’t find this M mark on after WW II pieces.
