  1. Hi Nick, Thanks a lot for this photo that I will keep in my archives... have a good nice weekend, Regards Patout
  2. Hello Nick Thanks a lot for this informations I’ve never seen a box in eighth grade in Rising sun or sacred treasure... have you seen one ? or have you one in your collection ? Regards Patout
  3. Hello Nick, Always about Tamatebako Miyake…. I have in my collection a sacred treasure 7th class with a T.M. case (already presented on this forum) but I have never seen a case of T.M. for a 8th class sacred treasure .!! so do you think ? do you know ? if the 8th class had existed with this kind of box ? and same question about rising sun, what is the lowest class existing for this type of case ? It seems to me that the lower classes are the hardest to find, and for my part I have never seen a case T.M. for a class lower than the 6th class for the order of the rising sun and for a class lower than the 7th class for the sacred treasure. Regards Patout
  4. Hi Nick, Thank you nick for this additional information. With a photo it’s better, realy nice piece. Best, Pat
  5. Hi Nick, Thank you for this answer. Regards Patout
  6. Hello to all dear passionate colleagues. I don't know much about this medal, is it a good one ? or one of several chinese copies.? About the text on the reverse there are several versions : some people say it's the biography of S.Y.Sen, others that it is the text of his last letter to the central commmittee of soviets, just before his death ? what do you think about it ? Thank you to everyone who will take time to answer to me Regards Patout
  7. Hi Nick, Thanks again for his invaluable help. It seems to me that this document is quite rare? What do you think about that ? History_Geek : Hi, the dimensions of this document are 185.5 x 53.5 (in cm) Regards
  8. Hi all, I know well as all of you the document (diploma) given with the coronation medal of Emperor Taisho but I did not know this kind of document in "hanging scroll". It seems to me that this document is nominative, can you confirm that ?, and tell me to whom it was assigned to ? Can you tell me in the main lines what the text says under the photocopy of the diploma and inside the small frame at the bottom of the document? Could each recipient of the enthronement medal claim to receive this type of document ?? or is it a personal purchase from the recipient? ................or is this a special distinction or recognition on the part of the Emperor? Thank you for your kind assistance. Patout
  9. Hi Nick, Thanks you for everything.. pity that there is no database available. I just had oral informations from the family but no writing... no writing either in the family, and the family castle has been sold. It would be very interesting to know the reason invoked by Prince Morimasa himself to give Georges de Tressans this medal.... too bad!! Best, Patrick
  10. Hi Nick, I still need your help in translation... I'm very curious to know where in the japanese document the name of Georges de la Vergne de Tressan is written ? Have these many first names ( Georges Antoine François Ludovic) been translate or only the first ? Thanks for your involvement Patrick
  11. Hi Nick, Sorry for this misunderstanding.... I answered too quickly without looking at the number. If you can find informations in the japanese numbering system for foreigners they will be welcome and much appreciated. NB: On my side I could not find anything with the (french) number of registration "31 212" for foreign order. There is only a database for the members of legion of honnor and nothing else. Regards, Patrick
  12. Hi Nick Thank you for all this additional information. Yes , this number is a specific registration number for foreign orders In France you can not carry a foreign order without the authorization of "la Grande Chancellerie", this one especially monitor the obtaining of foreign orders that can be confused with French orders. In the middle of the 20th century for example many French easily obtained (sometimes by paying) the order of Christ of Portugal... that he pretended to be a legion of honor (same red ribbon)...so to avoid that you must have the authorization to carry foreign order. Patout Hi "Egorka" Thank you for your interest in this testimony. When we are interested in a character that we do (modestly) in some way out of the shadows and that we discover its richness, we can only be humble and respectful in the face of certain very fulfilled lives. Georges de Tressan also had the time to publish a work always reissued which earned him the congratulations of his staff . Patout
  13. Unfortunatly no mark at all including the part of the rim hiding under suspension leaf. Of course, you can share this group to your russian colleagues. Regards Patrick
  14. Nick I hope these photo have answerd to your request, do not hesitate if you want additional photos. Friendly Patout
