Red Cross - Great Kanto Earthquake Commemorative Medallion

Recommended Posts

Taisho 12 (1923) - Commemorative of rescue efforts for the Great Kanto Earhtquake. These seem to be fairly uncommon from what I've observed. This case is a modern replacement as the originals are specifically marked and have a different interior liner. I wonder what kinds of medals or commemorative pieces will be made for the Tsunami of 2011, if any??? Anyway.....

Very nice. The replacement catch matches the medal well.

I couldn't locate it in Peterson so it must be a very uncommon medal.

Thanks! It's a really nice piece. The original cases actually have gilt writing on them and a different liner (totally different color). I'm really uncertain on just how rare they are. I've seen a few of them for sale in typically large groups of medals and badges, gonna start looking for them more routinely though!

Thanks Paul! Any idea on the actual number that may have been made?
