This one was issued by Tokyo city in commemoration of emperor [Taisho] enthronement.

December, 1915. 

The case is original to the badge.

 

We gonna need a reverse for the second one, Tom.

Best,

Nick

This badge was issued in 1932 for participation in the army special large scale maneuvers held in Osaka prefecture.

It is made in pure silver by Shobido workshop in Osaka.

Thank you again Nick. I sincerely appreciate all your help. I’m thinking of purchasing these but have no idea on value. Could you possibly give me approximate values?

 Thanks again 

Tom

50-60 bucks for both of them seems like a fair price. 

At least for me ;)
