Asking for help from my friend..:-)

Recommended Posts

Hello! A close friend of mine asks for help, he bought the Order of the Sacred Treasure of the 3rd class, he looks like that, he cannot take a good photo of the punk (supposedly Namikawa, but he did it with a smartphone). In my opinion there is something wrong with this order and it is either very worn, or it is not necessarily the original. My knowledge is too small to be appreciated, so I present it to professionals 🙂 asking for help.

Thanks !!

Pretty early badge from Meiji/early Taisho epoch.

The case, the ribbon and the rosette came from the different (much later) epoch.

Put together set.

Looks like the badge is marked with mark.

The correct case (and ribbon) for such order should look like this.

You're welcome.

Just in case - another  possible variation of ribbon/rosette/case that is typical for orders marked with ナ.

So called "pink" ribbon.

I've asked myself this many times ...

Is there a precise explanation for the use of the pink bars?

(I saw pink bars on many blue ribbons too ...)

    • 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.
