    Order of the Sacred Treasure - Hallmark "ナ"

    Yes, that case is original. I don't have a Sacred Treasure with this particular hallmark, but I've got a Rising Sun with one:

    I believe the Rising Sun to be a Meiji-era piece, but I'm going to guess that your Sacred Treasure is a late-Meiji to early-Taisho era piece.

    There were three main private manufacturers of the orders up until 1929:

    Hirata Haruyuki (平田春行) Namikawa Sousuke (濤川惣助) Ohki Souho (大木宗保) 

    The 'na' hallmark most likely belonged to Namikawa.  

    If you have my medals newsletter of 2012, I wrote about this in issue #7 and included a short bio of Namikawa.
