Original era manufacture. Silver, multi-piece construction award, with a beautifully enameled obverse. Complete with its original ribbon and issue case. This is a very intricate medal to manufacture, with numerous steps in the enameling process, the end result being a very attractive medal, but fragile. There is some minor enamel loss on the obverse, located on the right central horizontal arm, and a few spots of minor cracking and chipping elsewhere. Missing one of the tiny securing screws on the reverse. Original lacquered wood issue case, the hinge is loose and the silk fabric covering the hinge is torn, missing the small securing clasp on the front of the box. In spite of it's minor flaws, it represents a fairly scarce example of Japan's bravery order, offered in the grade awarded to senior NCO's and Junior Officers.
