Pretty unusual order of awards...

Did those finally sell, or are they still stuck on YJA?

Remeber this "mysterious"? :whistle:

Hard to forget...... ;)

I recently saw the commemorative version of this with a gold mum. Here's another regular with a gold mum - do you think they were actually made this way? I think they were probably painted to sex them up to try to make more $$$$. :unsure:

Stuck? Such rare piece of history?! :whistle:

Well, this "sexing up" looks more or less professional to me (although I don't like the looks of "sexing up" of pink ribbon).

I am inclined to think that this is an "official" variation of "green ribbon" (influenced by 1928 Showa enthronement medal?).

Do you have this one in your collection?

Yep! This is one is in my collection. Has original paper box and cello-wrapper too. The gold does look well-done, so maybe there is something to your theory and it is not just sexing it up...??

I've shown this one before, but I'll put it up again for this thread, Imperial Guard "edition":
