    This is the eighth class of the Rising Sun. The seventh class would have green/purple enamel.

    Nice find!

    I saw one of those on fleabay the other day, but I didn't follow, not sure how much it went for. That one had no writing on the back though. It is a neat looking medal

    The one you saw was not this medal, but perhaps something similar.
    They all have characters on the reverse.

    An eighth Class medal without case should sell for around
    $30-$40 IF it's a genuine silver original. There are cheap
    pewter/pot metal copies at $10-$15.........

    It had the same red and white ribbon, with the silver flower. Maybe it was a fake? it was ebay after all lol I found some more for around the price you quoted. I don't know kanji, so I'm not sure if the boxes are right or not, but they are neat medals none the less
