Guessing 1970's, maybe early 80's? No maker's marks or codes of any kind. Back to using lacquerware case, not Bakelite/plastic. Somewhat different kanji style (8) on the lid.

Very nice pick-up, thanks for sharing!

The style of the kanji is a little unusual. Does this particular style align with a certain period of manufacture?

I do like the lower level Sacred Treasures with their simple, understated yet elegant design.

The style of all kanji's at the cover of this box is typical for post war period except kanji 8. Such 8 is typical for boxes from Meiji/Taisho/early Showa periods.

My pleasure! Yesm, I too like the lower class awards, really all of them. I totaly agree on the simple yet elegant design. Especially the Rising Sun! Very elegant in my opinion!

It always seems to the the numeral character that changes most dramatically and really stands out!

Here's another interesting one with that slightly different "8"! Sold this morning. Thought about buying it, but price was climbing and I didn't want to get into a bidding war. I'll wait for another one.
