Japanese 1914-1920 War Medal With Case


Blackened bronze medal with two crossed Rising Sun flags for the Army and Navy beneath a Imperial Chrysanthemum, with Paulownia flowers and leaves arching along the base. To its reverse are embossed three columns of kanji characters, which translate to “Taisho era 3rd-9th Years War” 1914-1920. This is in reference to the Japanese involvement in the First World War, and beyond it to include actions in Siberia. A swiveling hanger is connected to its top, which is itself then connected to a swiveling horizontal bar, through which the ribbon is looped. To the face of the bar is embossed a row of four kanji characters, translating to “War Medal.” Complete with original ribbon and case of issue. Both medal and case are both in very good condition with light signs of age.


Pretty scarce medal!!
