Looks like on the bar from left to right (in the picture) is the Taisho Enthronement, Manchurian Incident, Showa Enthronement, China Incident??, 2600 Year Anniversary, Munchukuo National Foundation, Pu Yi Visit to Japan. Sacred Treasure on his right, not sure about the breast star on the left. Assuming 3rd Class Rising Sun around the neck?

Thank Dieter.. :cheers:

What's the little badge on the right pocket? An officer/academy badge?

Is it an Order from Manchukuo on his left pocket? :unsure:

The star most likely represents a 2nd class Order of United Honor [AKA Order of United Glory or Order of Common Honor] award of the 1940-45 Chinese Nanking government. This grade comprises a star, badge & sash. The awarding entity is generally held to be a Japanese surrogate or puppet govnernment.

Yes, the one on his left is the Order of Common Honor first or second class (only the number of stars in the center could tell).

This order is super rare, I never saw one neither in auctions nor any museum in China or Japan. Her a picture out of a book from a first class example:

Why the puppet award placed on the left pocket while the Order of Sacred Treasure from homeland placed on the right pocket?

He wears the Sacred Treasure on his right side to indicate that it is the second class award. If he wore it on the left side it would indicate he had the first class.
