Another order. Again--sorry to be so ignorant--but I cannot identify it.

Richard,

thanks again for the nice pictures from the collection of Okuma.

The Belgian one is the Grandcross order of Leopold (civil division). The case is wrong; belongs to the Italian order of the Crown (U on the lid is for Umberto)

The second order is the Grandcross of the order of the Red Eagle of Prussia and the third one is the grandcross of the order of Villa Vicosa of Portugal.

Thanks very much, Pieter! As I stated before, I am taking notes so I don't have to ask again.

Sorry about the case mistake. I must have mixed up the photos.

I think this is the Russian award document for the Nevsky Order.

Yes, it is!

Nice calligraphy! :cheers:

P.S. Always loved these sash badges of Red Eagle Order ;)

Chris,

I am a digillitarate and don't know how to put pictures on GMIC. But if you go to the site of Richard (imperialjapanmedalsandbadges) under Grandcordon a picture is shown of Kato's order of the Chrysanthemum document, which he received posthumously on 28 January 1926. The Grandcordon shown by Richard is not Kato's, but his looks exactly the same.

Hope this is of some use to you,

Pieter

Pieter,

That's ok for me, for sure!

BTW, if you have further information (documents, pictures, etc.) about Kato Takaaki, please feel free to contact me via pm.

BR, Chris

Yep, indeed very nice "Crown" he had!

It's a bummer that they didn't make the pictures of reverses ...
