I will take first crack.

It is to an private 1st class from the infantry. The private won an order (either rising sun or sacred treasure 8th class). I cant read names, sorry. The date awarded is December 15th, 1919. I think the serial number is actually 184729. If I am wrong, someone can correct me.

I think this is one the best looking documents. I have two WWI Victory Documents myself. Nice find.

Thank you for your translation, you are right number is 184729. The soldier would have belonged to the infantry.
For me this is the highest number that I saw and the first for a soldier not belonging to the navy.
I hope that I am going to arrive the rank and name of the person.
The numbers of documents are they greater than 184729.
Best regards
