Circular silver medal with elaborately decorated swivel suspension; the face with the characters for ‘Merit Medal’ encircled by cherry blossom; the reverse plain; on original ribbon with hook and eye and bearing a silver bar inscribed ‘Showa 38 June 19th’ ( = AD1963) in Japanese characters; with lapel stick pin; in fitted embossed black lacquer case of issue.

The Medal was created by Imperial Edict No. 349 of 19 September 1918 to be awarded to those who contribute their private fortunes to public welfare.

Unlike all other merit medals, the reverse of the Dark Navy Blue Ribbon Merit Medal is never inscribed with a character meaning ‘to’ nor with the name of the recipient.

A superb example in excellent condition.
