I've been looking for a Golden Kite class 6 or 7 but have seen some replicas out there. How do you identify a replica from an original from photos?
I have a modest medal collection with no Japanese medals so these are very new to me; I wanted to add a Golden Kite to my display and decided on the 6 or 7 class because of the cost. I would appreciate any info on this topic.

Thanks for the reply Mickey. That site is a great resource. I had looked over it earlier and it discusses replicas of the 1st class medal but doesn't say anything about the 6th or 7th.
