And it looks like Peterson knew about eccentricity of his piece ;)

I found two more authentic medals (without ribbon).

You can have number one for the peanuts of 1,200,000 Yen.

Number one is too expensive for you guys? Don't worry, here is Number two for 850,000 Yen:

While the remaining pieces of 9,997 medals (according to Morton & Eden info) are "somewhere" - what do we know about the (quantity) of the ribbon? Were the medals stored at the Osaka mint together with the ribbon? Adjusted?...

Dude its not "according to Morton&Eden"

This number came from Peterson

Where did he get this number?

Guess it came from the same source as info about 1 000 000 + Kites :whistle:

What we have here is another first-rate mystery ;)

Or simply spoken just a copy, which Peterson was looking at?

Honestly, I don't belive in any "two prototypes" for the bar. If so, there should be some more bars with the changed writting direction somewhere out there :whistle:

Well – “viel Feind, viel Ehr’!” and I can live with it! :P

Seriously, I don’t understand why there were so less critical questions from the world wide community about Peterson?! Seems like everybody is just taking all information without double-checking it or simply look for (alternative) sources…

To make it right, I am not blaming anybody and I don't want to throw the first stone. But honestly, are there no critical voices out there? Or do I simply overlooked some public discourse?

Do you mean the one from post no. 30 (this thread)? -

I met the seller and know, that he sold this medal.

That's the one! It finally sold for the asking price. 350,000 much better than 850,000 or 1,200,000!! ;)

No suspension, no bar and no ribbon, but nevertheless original ;)
