Take a good look at the ribbon rosette (obviously it was added lately).

Different (later than 5th class that we saw before) workmanship.

Now we really need the photo of early Hirato Rising Sun Order with Paulownia leaf directly fixed to the Sun :whistle:

These are quaisi rare ...

All we have is black and white photo of such piece in Peterson book (3rd edition, p. 25)

I don`t know why Peterson thought that this direct fixation was the execlusive feature of 3rd class...

All earlie Hirato pieces (from 1st to 6th class) have these feature.

Cheers,

Nick

Kinda figured it'd go high. Did you catch that Korean order a few days ago though that went for 2,198,000 yen? PHEW!! Or some big number like that, can't recall exactly, but it was around $24,000 U.S.!!
