    Default Order of the Rising Sun 4th Class

    Hi guys.

    I have reciently seen on Ebay a group of japanesse medals.
    The left one I think it is the Order of the Rising Sun 4th Class, but I am in doubt. Is it a real medal or a fake one?
    The medal's union with the Paulownia flowers is different.

    What do you think about it?
    Thanks in advance.

    When it looks odd to you just stay away. Stick to textbook pieces and remember that all 4th classes of orders should have a rosette on the ribbon unless they are super early Meiji ones.

    Hi.

    I'll keep that in mind.
    But in your opinion this one is a real one?. I have only been watching these medals for 2 moths but This one seems a bit unusual.

    Thank you Nick.

    Because it broke and they couldn't repair it properly, that's all.

    Replica.
    The medal bar is bogus too of course.
