Excellent info. As usual, Nick Komiya comes through with fantastic stuff. He really should write a book. Thanks Nick K, and thanks Nick from Russia for this insight. Still a bit strange that no cas

Dear Mr. Ulsterman, It appears I owe you an apology. You have a memory that is working. Forgive me for suggesting it never happened. I do that quite a bit these days much to the consternation of m

Balsa box for a medal from 1942?!

No inscription on the cover?! (and we are talking about official box for official Japanese medal!)

Untypical interior color!

Inside box we found pretty "tied" medal!

What are the chances that this box is original one?

I.e. it is originally was made for Incident Medal and not for some other "unofficial" medal? :whistle:

I very much doubt this is the original case! I'd assume originals, if they existed, would be fashioned like all of the other Showa-era medals war and commemorative medals. I've seen a few of these medals in cases, as I'm sure we al have, but I have yet to see two that are the same! I think you are right - for an unoffical medal, or more likely a generic box really with a fabricated interior.

Kinda surprised the piece above didn't sell at that price! The medallion does look a bit beat up around the edges, but still. The market never ceases to amaze me.

I tell you - people have no respect for zzzuper rare, made (almost) exclusively for (merited) traitors, famous "chop your head if we'll find one on you after the end of war" medal ...

I am sure pretty soon they will be whipping the cat!!!

P.S. The American Humane Association monitored the animal action. No animals were harmed in the making of this post.

BR, Chris

Not me, but I know who! I'm out of the pricey medals business for now. Had to shift financial focus for the foreseeable future.

For a Incident Commemorative Medal in a War Medal case, a lot of money...

Another treasure "in original FITTED embossed case of issue"!

Slightly divided original fitted case I must add ...

Let's dance!

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
