5th class is original Meiji piece. Case and ribbon both match the badge.

 

4th class is also Meiji era piece. 

The enamel is "sick" https://asiamedals.info/threads/when-japanese-orders-are-getting-sick.12614/

 

Also the upper part of the sword is bent.

Somebody turned over the ribbon (so it looks newer).

The rosette was added to the ribbon much later.

Same goes for the wrong case in which this piece was sold.

Hello, as far as I know, the rosette was added to the 4th class of the order only from 1937, i.e. in the Showa era. So this one was added probably later, since it is the fourth class from the Meji era?

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • 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 .
