Piece A marked with kanji

I wonder if this one also falls into the roughly WWI-period as you see this same mark on 1914-15 War Medals?

And/or little later...

And/or little earlier ...

Or both statements...

The more I am looking at all these early marks, the more I get the feeling that they all were active (except M mark) only for a very short period of time ...

I'd say [min 1895-1930 max] ...

Since on other phalera forums our colleagues are trying to use shade of the green enamel for dating rising suns I think it will be usefull to examine in every detail two additional examples of 7th class.

One from Meiji epoch (00s) and the other from late Showa (late 30s).

First will be this exellent Meiji piece
