Thanks Ed. Is 400USD in the ballpark?

Based on the prices I heard quoted at OMSA, that would be a very good price.

I can only find two just now (at NOT ONE OF THE CHEAPER dealers), the first boxed at ?645.00, the second boxless at ?595.00.

Hi Paul

I have all except the 1st "1874 Formosa Expedition War Medal", not sure if any would even exist, and the last one "1941-45 Great East Asia War Medal" which can only be found as a repro, though I do plan on getting one eventually.

Not meaning to boast :rolleyes: but I have both of these. The 1874 turns up from time to time and at present costs about $5,000 or so in Japan if you can find one. They are difficult to find but not impossible if you are patient and have a large bank balance ! The GEAWM is harder to find and repros abound. The repros are actually made for veterans who feel they are entitled to it and can be found easily in Japan. The originals turn up once every few years, normally when an old collection is sold.

:cheers:

Hi Paul,

If possible, I would like that you post here clear photos of the 'Front' and 'Back' (comprising the ribbons) of the 2 ORIGINAL medals you have, i.e. of :

- 1st "1874 Formosa Expedition War Medal'';

- GEAWM.

Is it this possible ? (It's to include them in my reference database and so, to make the difference with the modern reproductions/fakes)

Thanking you in advance

All the Best

Hi Lilo,

I will, once I get them out of the bank vault when I am next there.

I am in the process of gathering together the final pieces I need to start writing a book on Japanese awards which will be far more detailed than Peterson, however do not hold your breath since it will take a while to complete given how busy I am with my day job !

Cheers,

Paul

Hi Paul,

No problem at all for waiting but please not forget to post here the 2 photos when you get the 2 medals from the bank vault.
