Let`s sum up ;)

In case of Imperial Constitution Promulgation Medal we have three types of attachement gear

Type 1 ("hecho a mano sewed" style of gear attachement)

Type 2 ("sewed" style of gear attachement - made by workshop that manufactured the ribbon - obviously very professionaly and quite uniform attachement style)

Type 3 ("late standart" style of gear attachement)

And of course there are specimens without any gear.

BTW, does anybody have any reliable data about

a) the minted pieces

b) the awarded pieces.

c) the number of entitled persons, who were allowed to wear/receive the Imperial Constitution Promulgation Medal

If my memories correct, Nick K. mentioned in an old threat at WAF 10 golden medals were awarded?

Above mentioned questions are refer to the silver medal.

Splendid, Nick!

This brings up the next question (I'd like to refer back to my questions posted in #110):

Is there any chance to date or refer to any epoch each of the above summarised three types? Or are they all within the Meiji-area?

I guess, to answer this question, it is necessary to know further background. E.g. Was it worth it to produce" several types" for manageable number of recipients? Until when was the Imperial Constitution Promulgation Medal awarded...? Etc.

The safe one will be: "they are all within Meiji"

We are talking of course about Wedding, Constitution, Yellow Ribbon 1st type and 1874 War Medal.

That would mean, no production / minting of any above mentioned medals in Taisho area? Even not for memento reasons in the (let's say) 1920s?

    • 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.
