    Order of the Rising sun.

    Hi all, I have a question which may seem stupid to some, but whilst I'm reasonably familiar with European awards, Oriental ones are fairly new to me but look very interesting. I understand that the rising sun came in 8 classes (Up to 2003) and understand that, however, unless it's me, I can't discern any differences between the 4th and 5th classes,, the third is obvious as it's a neck decoration, and and larger the 6th as it's silver in colour, but the 4th and fifth?


    any help appreciated

    hehheeehhe I also though for some time I was blind... :) 

    Number of flowers (?) is different, and the star is completely golden (5th has silver/golden rays).

    Hi the number of flowers is a tricky one to spot, the gold and silver rays may also be, as with a tarnished medal difficult to spot also, maybe that's why I couldn't see a difference, thanks, useful information
