Nick said : another possible scenario "for long meritorious service"  but, does this inscription refer to a higher class or a special service?

All (silver and gold) badges are simply merit badges. No higher classes or grades (judging by case insciptions).

The left column states that this badge was made by 

1884585637_____.jpg.6015bea9d5532aad3b335cc03e5cce16.jpg

one of two main manufacturers of these badges.

Middle -  name of the society.

Right - name of the badge.

Most of the models encountered are from the Taisho era, is this medal was distributed a lot under the Showa era or was its manufacture stopped? and when?

These badge were issued at least until 1940.

Furthemore It seems to me that the medal (with ribbon) was reserved for foreigners and the version badge (without ribbon) was given to Japanese.

In fact there are three kind of badges.

Badges on rising sun ribbon.

Badges without ribbon.

Badges on metal suspension.

Hello Nick


Thanks

Really what a pleasure it is to have an answer to all my questions,

and with in addition "cerise sur le gâteau" as we say in France (icing on the cake), the name of the manufacturer.

I didn’t understand why we found this medal with and without ribbon I didn’t know there were three kinds of badges, it's clear now !!

thanks for the photo of the diploma that I had never seen, as well as for the date of end of production of this badge.

 

Regards

Patout
