Unknown class of a Japanese ribbon

Recommended Posts

Hello, what class of the Japanese Order of the Sacred Treasure is this? This is the ribbon bar of Vizeadmiral Joachim Lietzmann who was the Naval-Attaché at the German Embassy in Tokyo, Japan (24 Aug 1937-30 Mar 1940).

I would say that it is for the 4th class which IIRC would be the correct level for a Vice Admiral, however I don't think the device is correct.

 

Cheers

Keep in mind he was a Kapitan zur See during that time, not a Vizeadmiral. So you still think it's the 4th Class? I.e. the Officer's Cross?

As far as I remember he was awarded with 3rd class

As for the Kleindekoration in the form of the sun - this is unofficial add-on.
