    Japanese Order ? ID Help request

    Modern made mixture of order of rising sun with paulounia leaves and order of sacred treasure. Most likely unofficial commemorative badge of some organization. Without the original case (if there is one in existence) - unidentifiable.

    After war fire brigade badge. Issued in commemoration of the 25th anniversary of municipal fire service.
  16. Yes, looks like all the names are there. Although they are sound something like Joruju Antowānu etc Regarding the number of the japanese doc - as for today no database is available for futher research. Best, Nick
  17. Yes, I know Patrick I was talking about number of japanese doc 3 381. Japanese docs issued for foreigners have special separate numbering system. The number on french athorization doc 31 212 Regards, Nick
  18. Very interesting article about Georges de Tressan by Minami Asuka that was published 8 years ago in Arts Asiatiques Source. Arts Asiatiques Année 2010, 65 pp. 167-180
  19. Great! The number of this doc is only 3 381 (this is a special numbering for foreign recipients).
  20. Thanks! Superb group! Did you check rising sun for marks (at the rim including the part of the sun rim that is hiding under suspension leaf)? Will it be ok with you if I`ll show your group to our russian colleagues? Regards, Nick

    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 (?)

    Tanto help red

    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
