Is this an Osaka Mark my Meiji Sacred Treasure 6th Class


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I recent got this Sacred Treasure 6th Class in unbelievable condition. Looking at the makers mark it appears to be Zohei-kyoku (Japan mint) in Osaka,Japan? Is that the same as the "M" mark? or is it from a different maker and time period? I read on this forum that the M mark is from 1931 and later. Is my mark that same or earlier?

Thanks,

Rav

Hi "Ravenft"

For me it is the workshop of: 幣"- Zōheikyoku sei.
Osaka’s mark is simply a "M"
cordially.
But maybe our friend Nick can tell you more.

Do you happen to know what time period did they manufactured this medal? Thank you for identifying the workshop. Hopefully Nick will add to this too. 

all the best,

Hi,

 

According to me, and according to what I have observed, the mark of the imperial workshop of the medals of Ozaka: "M"
appeared in 1929 and was in use until 1936, and I think it’s the same for the other marks

Cordially

This badge wa issued somewhere between 1931 and 1933. 

This is the known time  period for this mark as per today. 

Who marked orders with  is not known with certainty (as per today)

It could be the second mark of the mint since 

- mint 

But as I said earlier this is a hypothesis.

Zōheikyoku/ ぞうへいきょく/  translated as Mint bureau or simply Mint. 

  reads as nusa and could be translated (from chinese) as money/coins/currency

Mark M was in use during longer time period.

    • I've never smoked a single cigarette in my 62 years so I can't compare, but I can say that I like Lapsang Souchong tea, having tasted it the first time when I was 16, and a sea cadet. I'm not a Brit, though.
    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
