opinion on Rising Sun 5th class

Recommended Posts

Hello! I have been lately feeling romantic and after having read some haiku I decided to indulge in expanding my Japanese collection.

So I am looking for opinion and dating on this order of Rising Sun 5th class. I think it is around 1970s.

A-ha! The era is Showa, but the silverfish lettering indicates it is the war period (material economy). Am I right? :)

But that is the box. What can be said about the order it self?

The actual reason for silver kanji is still unknown (at least to me).

As for the badge (as always no 100% guarantee) it fits the case (more or less).

Hello!

I also got neat card set together with the order. Can someone tell me when the cards were printed?

Nice set of 10 (postcards).

No exact date, but it was issued before 1936.

Most likely somewhere between 1930 and 1935.

Best,

Nick 

P.S. Original name of this set
