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 ;)

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...!

Very nice, totally complete! These displays seem to be so often missing at least the lapel pin, or case or whatever! Kudos to the person who put it together complete!

Here is our 1887 Merit Medal (Yellow Ribbon) in its original case - see detailed photos of old style unrecessed case, fastening, hook/eye stitching.
