Only one thing about this bar looks a liitle bit off

This 4th class sacred treasure ...

It definetely belongs to the Meiji epoch.

My dating for this piece would be in the neighborhood of 1900 ;)

It looks like he came from Meiji epoch (at least by these quite terrible photos)

And if so, then where are our usual 1895/1900/1904-05 or at least 1914/1920 compain medals.

But even more interesting is all other medals in this bar look like they belong together

So, one of the possibilities will be added kite.

What do you think guys? ;)

So.

The last medal in the bar came from 1912

But 4th class sacred treasure came from Showa epoch (30s+ at the very least)

What we have here is lower class - Caballero

It was created only in 1937 ;)

But the funniest thing is that once again all four medals look like they really belong together!

Outstanding! I've been buying up Japanese medal bar pictures for 2 decades and while there is enormous uniformity, sometimes there are surprises.

Luckily we have an oppurtunity to examine two of these three medal bars more closely ;)

As I already said earlier - these four medals definitely belong together

I am not so sure about orders :whistle:
