Rising Sun 7th cl enamel question

Recommended Posts

You're right! Sorry I referenced the wrong thread. Check out the next page down and there is a thread concerning the rivets on the Order of the Sacred Treasure and Paul confirmed that the rivetless pieces are post-war.

Erik,

I'm still learning and will try to answer your question if I can. I will use three examples of items I have saved PICS to, not necessarily my stuff here, but think it will help. If not, I am sure Paul will correct me and we both will learn! :lol:

Here is a Order of the Sacred Treasure (6th Class) and you can see both the medal and lapel device are both Meiji style. It came in a Meiji era case as well. So, IMO, all original to each other. Note how the lapel device is circular. Now, how to tell the differences between a 6th and higher award lapel device is beyond me at this point.

Tim

That was what I have been trying to figure out for some time, if the circular device is Meiji era or later.

It seems like the Rising sun 2nd class device I posted is for a 4th class.

Thanks for all the information! It is very useful.

Erik,

Based on the matrix Paul provided above, yes< I would agree the rosette is for a 4th class Showa piece.

R,

Tim
