Very Rare 6th Sacred Crown Women's Medal Enamel Silver Japanese Japan Badge For Sale
This sale:An officialdecorationfrom Japan.This is the Order of the Sacred Crown 6th Class Medal. Beautiful enamel work! Very scarce award, and this one has almost no damage. Actually, I cannot find any damage at all, but I may have overlooked something. Hallmarked on reverse.
The Sacred Crown award was established in 1888. This award, quite rare in all its classes, was made exclusively for women. Originally there were only 5 classes, but in 1896 the 6th through 8th classes were established for nurses, teachers, and other women worthy of merit. See HERE for different examples of who received the different classes. And see HERE for page 2 of the Sacred Crown.Each class has its unique suspension design, and they are as follows:1st Class: Paulonia 2nd Class: Peony 3rd Class: Moth (or sometimes called Butterfly) 4th Class: Wisteria 5th Class: Apricot 6th Class: Waves (or sometimes called Ripple) The 7th and 8th Classes have no suspension. However, the 7th is usually called the Gold Medal and the 8th the Silver.In 2003 the numbered classes were abolished. There are currently only 6 different medals. See the Japan Mint page for details. In addition, since women can now receive the Sacred Treasure Award, this order presently is conferred on women in the Imperial Family or female foreign dignitaries (especially nobility).
There are flaws here and there. Please look at the photos carefully.
NOTE: buyers FROM ASIA,ITALY, RUSSIA, & EasterN EUROPEAN COUNTRIES MUST USE EMS. Many of my packages are being lost via regular airmail. Sorry for the trouble.
