    Hi gang!

    Is it possible to tell what grade this award is. I'm thinking it's a higher class because of the suspension ring... but I don't handle these often enough to nail down the class.

    It's 55mm across at the bottom and 87mm from the bottom to the small suspension ring.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    It looks like it's either the Third Class or Second Class award. I think the only difference is that the 2nd Class comes with a separate breast star. I can't tell without the presentation box.

    1st & 2nd Class
    3rd & 4th Class

    A beautiful award, I agree with Guy it is either a 3rd or 2nd class but it is impossible to tell with out the presentation box. You may be interested to know that this award is still being issued, most recently in 2013 to professor Richard Bowring who is professor of Japanese studies at Cambridge university, It was also awarded to Clint Eastwood in 2009.
