Article about: by Stu W Hi Joe, Looks like a nice Sen-sho (for wounds suffered in battle) Wound Badge you have there. Now you need the Ko-sho (non battle related) to go with it. I've read that many soldier

    on the reverse of the certificate are two cautionary notes -- which are beyond my experience to translate without taking 3 hours!!! But the title is:

    Chūi jikō
    Caution/Warning/Attention Matters
    [Matters of Import]

    Thanks a lot, Guy!

    I am waiting on a package from Japan containing:

    Order of the Sacred Treasure 8th Class
    Order of the Rising Sun 8th Class
    China Incident War Medal

    I'd still like to add a 1914-1915 War Medal, WWI Japanese victory medal, swordsmanship badge, bereaved family next-of-kin KIA badge, and some rank insignia.

    How much are the fencing badges? Because of my interest in Japanese fencing and the Toyama Military Academy, I've longed to get one. I've got two sake cups from the Toyama Academy .... I just want a Fencing Badge now.

    Hi Guy,

    One sold for $330 on the Guild... but based on how cheaply I've put together this collection, I think that's ridiculous!

    There's one on ebay now with bidding at $60, but the catch is broken...

    Hi Joe,

    I checked ebay 20 minutes earlier and didn't see anything ... what is the listing? If anyone here is bidding on it, I will not bid.

    Check your PMs, Guy!

    I'm not bidding on it... my next acquisition will probably be a KIA bereaved family badge with purple cord.

    Thanks Joe! Say, that's Rich Catalano who's selling it. He's good people.
