Order of Precious Crown

宝冠章

Hōkan-shō

宝 - Precious/Treasured

冠 - Crown

章 - Order

Interesting, that by some (unknown to me) reason Peterson translated 宝冠章 as Order of Sacred (?!) Crown.

As far as I understand as adjective 宝 = precious, revered, treasured and as noun 宝 = brilliant, jewel, precious stone, sapphire, treasure. No "sacred" in sight ...

Typical enamel damage ;)

"Typical" for order that was actually worn!

And when we are talking about 2nd class we are talking about

a) Queens Regnant (they got their Crowns on their 15th birthdays)

b) Imperial princesses (they got their Crowns on the day of their wedding ceremonies)

c) Diet members
