    Default Order of the Rising Sun 8th Class

    Hi guys.

    A week ago, I purchased this one. Seller said It was from wwii, but I think it is from Meiji era, because the case's inscriptions in my opinion are from that era and also the badge.
    It was cheap. They did not charge me taxes at customs.

    What do you think about it?

    The case and lapel ribbon are Meiji style, but the photo of the order is too low quality to tell. To me it looks like it has a replaced ribbon.

    Hi Nick.

    Thank you for your replay.
    The ribbon and lapel ribbon are dirty, but in the pic they seem to be clean.
    I will try to take a new one.

    Thank you.

    My comment had nothing to do with the condition of the ribbon, but the configuration of the ribbon eyelet.

    I guess you can call yours late Meiji. Here's how Meiji ones tend to differ from later issued ones. Look at the vein endings.

    Very interesting. Thank you again Nick.

    One more thing. Do you know if the same happens with the 7th class?
