Order of the Sacred Treasure

Recommended Posts

6th Class, uncased at this time though I am working on a cased version. The enamel work on these and the other Japanese medals sure is sweet.

Hi!

I think this order is perfectly fine. But it looks like a post war wariation. (no rivets on the reverse of the order). I don't think I have ever seen any fake 5th cl Sacred treasures.

here is my one

Edit: wrote 6th instead of 5th...

and the box. I think this order are made sometime around 1920. (I'm guessing here).

Edit: problem attaching picture

Thanks Eric :cheers: I see your writing is different. So would this be from between 1945 and 1947?

Would that apply for the 6th class also, or were rivets not used on that grade?

Rivets were used on 6th class orders and above. I believe they stoped using rivets sometime after the war (that is what I have heard). Sacred treasures are still awarded in Japan so Your order are probably made betwen 1945-2006. I can't be more acurate than that, sorry. :blush: So much still to learn about them. :cheeky:

I am actually only collecting the early ones.

The writing shanged sometime in the thirties to the style on Your 5th cl.

Hope it helps

Hi Eric

Thanks, I was thinking about the Golden Kite as to those dates posted previously. The cases are both wood from what i can see from where the catch is attached to the lid. Well now I know some more of what to look for. These will have to be replaced :speechless:
