7th class Rising Sun


Recommended Posts

  • 7 months later...

Oops, sorry, I did not see...

The source is an article on the chronological history of the Order found a few years ago on the website of Japanese mint. The green reverse of 7th Class was downgraded to silver near the end of 1945. This info was shared and confirmed by some friends in japan and any my subsequent studies (I always verify my information carefully) has always confirmed this data: Nobody seems to have ever seen "all silver" 7th Class medals before 1946.

Unfortunately I'm not so familiar with Mint's website as you are, but when I looked for this I was lucky enough to find a link that pointing there and there I found what I was looking for...

Then :

Verify reliability of the source : It is Ok (and with the mint site, this usually should be enough).

Check compatibility with others data already in my archives : no contrary evidence.

Look for tracks of existing 7° class green back medal before 1946 : not found (and never seen).

Deep search everywere for people or topic with contrary certitudes/evidences/opinions : not found.

Sharing and consultation with some friends to exclude misunderstandings in text translation : no mistakes.

Looking for someone that already heard/knew the same info with a different source : at least 1 found.

Conclusion : Info is correct.

The end.

This is my normal way, it never betrayed me and I don't understand why you find this little banality so important or weird ... Anyway, I'm sure I haven't found anything wrong so far, but it's also true that I'm not sure infallible ... So if you have something concrete that may have escaped me and says different things on this subject, please share it. I will listen to you with great interest. 

Thanx in advance and regards

Dan

You are obviosly confused Danny.

I simply asked you (actually I had to ask four times during last six months) about the source of info that allowed you to make this statement.

On 7th Class enamel was used until 1946.

Suppress enamel was not an economy choice but just a simplification.

 

Now I know the answer.

This is your "IMHO".

I think you are the confused one.

But really confused.

You can ask what you want, but I am free to answer you when I want, if I want, if I have time and, above all, only if you ask for intelligent things and with the right tone .. June 2020 was a very difficult time here, and the arrogant claim of a snow picture just because you don't know it's winter, it was a stupid thing to pretend, in the wrong tone and at the worst time. I am a polite person, so it's only to avoid having to tell you these things that I did not answer you right away. 

Anyway, I am not your student, your parent or your friend and I don't care about your opinions, so, please, try to moderate the terms and avoid bothering me in the future to fix your limits, cause I have not time to wast with you. 

Is it clear ?

Thaaaaanx.

This is offensive and inappropriate.

I would prefer  "un bicchiere di sapienza in un mare di arroganza"

("A glass of knowledge in a sea of arrogance")

This is how we call annoying clowns who think they know everything.

Now I know the answer.

Yes, sure, I know you think to know everything...

But if it had been IMHO I wouldn't have wasted my time writing the previous post and I would have only written that it was IMHO.

Maybe you don't  ?

 

Then...

why don't you surprise me by showing to us the bright truth on this amazing subject ?

Come on, please, show me the light...  what would your truth be ?

Thanx in advance and, please, don't forget the link to source...

bye bye

Dan

So is this all?

No bright ray of your light will comes to dismount my (late, humble and worthless) "personal opinion"  ?

Ohh !

May it be because the truth is just a little bit difficult to dismount ?

All 7th class badges without enamel at reverse that I saw with documents (in more or less reliable groups) were afterwar awards. 

Did you notice that this is exactly the same thing that I said in post 2, 4 and 6 after yours?

Think about it.

I know that I don`t know the exact time frame for 7th class badges of rising sun order without enamel at reverses. 

But what I know is that there are two types of 7th class rising suns without enamel at reverse. 

First type have all typical features of afterwar award.

I know for a fact (because of numerous authentic groups) that this type were used for veteran awardings during 1960s.

The case.

Now here comes the second type.

It has so-called "sanblasted" reverse (a.k.a. "frozen" reverse).

Usually it can be found inside the cases with silver kanji.

One of the late variations of the Golden Kite order from 1938 + period has similar reverse and cases with silver kanji are typical for 1938-1945 period.

Unfortuntely I`ve never seen such orders in authentic documented groups.

That`s why  I don't have full-on certainty that all  7th class rising sun orders without enamel at reverse belong to the post war period.

"IMHO  On"

The first model is definitely the final version, with polished reverse and without enamels.

The sandblasting is usually an intermediate treatment aimed at regularizing the background, which generally precedes enamels or polishing, so the second medal could be a transitional production datable between the middle and the end of 1945; already treated to be enameled but in the end remained "incomplete" and delivered as is.

This could also explain the "sandblasting" of the Golden Kite, probably suspended before the completion of the final treatments of the last examples produced .

"IMHO  OFF"

"ALL" was the theory, then you have to see the practice...

Some inventory results may have been used throughout the transition period.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
