I joined up here because this thread is such a good reference.

A quick question, can someone explain why sometimes I see Auspicious Clouds missing the center enamel piece?

Cheers!

Hi Max,

Welcome to GMIC!

I joined up here because this thread is such a good reference.

... why sometimes I see Auspicious Clouds missing the center enamel piece?

because this center enamel piece have one screw fixation.

When cavalier wear his piece long enough this screw (due to constant vibrations) slowly, but surely start to unfasten...

Usual story with Japanese orders that have screw construction (golden kites, breast stars of 1st and 2nd classes, etc...)

Regards,

Nick

Thanks for these brilliant new photos Nick!

The Auspicious Clouds would be one of my favourite orders. Professor Hata Shokichi certainly excelled himself in designing the very elegant Manchukuo awards.

Indeed!

Unfortunately, this one screw construction was a mistake ...
