  1. Thanks Nick for this valuable information, it is true that I also very often made this mistake to think that these boxes with kanjis on 2 vertical lines were only to be attributed to Meiji/Taisho. I would learn the lesson. Best, Patout
  2. Hi "1812 overture" Thank you for your contribution and for google translate Regards Patrick
  3. Hi Nick, Thanks a lot, for all this informations, and congratulations : the kanjis are golden and the two medals have the M of Osaka. The golden kite is in excellent condition as well as the box and is certainly of the Showa era...but for the rising sun, it seems to me that the box is rather of the Taisho era. Regards Patout
  4. Hi "1812 Overture" with much delay I wanted to thank you for this valuable information. A thousand thanks, cordially, Patout
  5. A document case of a private infantry superior, name ?? : Katayose ???? I am not at all sure of the translation of the name, if anyone can confirm me (or not !) and tell me what the correct translation is. This soldier was decorated on the same day (Showa 13 on 23 October) of the order of the rising sun 8th class, the golden kite 7th class and the medal of the incident with China. It seems strange to me that he is decorated on the same day with these three medals, is it exceptional or not ? have you often met this ? thank you for your valuable help Regards Patou
  6. Hi Nick, Thanks for your help, I think that the translation of the handwritten text will not be easy......... Regards, Patout
  7. Dear fellow collectors I have this diploma from the Japanese Russo War. There’s nothing unusual about it, except the little papers that were stuck on it. Is that someone can tell me what it says on it. I would also like to know the name of the soldier and his rank. Thanks for your help, Patout
  8. Hi Nick Here are the two-sided photos of the medal I hope it will help you for dating order. I have some tamatebako miyake boxes but unfortunately most of the medals have no markings, except the ones I spotted. The 3rd class is in a standard case but can be era Taisho? what do you think? the medal has a M punch. the 6th class medal (3rd photo, bottom left) next to the 3rd class medal with standard case seems to me the oldest of all, maybe Meiji era? Regards Patout
  9. Hi Nick, Very interesting document of L.o.H. concerning the very first Franco-Japanese mission, start of a long collaboration between France and Japan About my legion of honor and rising sun, the legion of honor has no manufacturer’s mark and the rising sun has no mark (I have looked carefully... nothing !) both medals are unfortunately very common. Patout
  10. Hi, According to me, and according to what I have observed, the mark of the imperial workshop of the medals of Ozaka: "M" appeared in 1929 and was in use until 1936, and I think it’s the same for the other marks Cordially Patout
