J010578 CASED ORDER OF THE RISING SUN, 8TH CLASS.

The Order of the Rising Sun ("Kyokujitsusho"), established in 1875 as Japanís first national decoration, could be awarded to either military or civilian personnel for meritorious service. There were eight classes to this order, of which only the lowest two were given to enlisted personnel. Foreigners, on occasion, could also be bestowed the award. This medal, the eighth of the eight classes, is in the form of a three-lobed spray of silver Paulownia leaves, with its veins articulated to the obverse, and with a row of four golden kanji characters to the reverse, which translate to "Order of Merit Decoration." The leaves are surmounted by three sets of silver Paulownia flowers on stalks, five to the center and three to each side. The ribbon is folded with an elongated, vertical alloy hook is to its top, which folds down and mates with an alloy eye sewn to the reverse. Included is a black lacquered wooden case. Case is complete with the exception of the clasp which is broken off. The interior is fully lined in purple silk and velvet.
