I wonder who is making these modern replacment cases? Especially for this medal, gotta be a pretty small market! Interior definitely not of the type or quality of originals of course, but a reasonable option if you want to re-case an orphaned medal.

As far as I know there is at least one workshop in Japan that make replicas of old boxes.

But this is the first time I saw modern replica for early Honor Medal ...

Indeed, the market should be a small one ;)

Is the the equivalent to the US Medal of Honor?

By rarity (only 572 silver medals of this type were issued) it even suppresses US medal of honor.

But of course it isn't even near in terms of prestige.

Not to mention that it was awarded not for extraodinary military merits, but for the large donations to the Coastal Defense Fund.

5000 yen and you are issued with a silver medal.

10000 yen and you've got yourself a gold one.

Well, I guess it's always a question of supply and demand!

The market calls for items - somebody satisfy their demand...!

    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.
