Japanese Red Cross - Cross of Merit in Presentation Box
Very nice example of the Japanese Red Cross of Merit. This is a truly beautiful medal with very detailed enamel work with no damage. The medal and the ribbon with roset are perfectly placed on a backing of black felt on the frame with which they were presented. The whole framed set comes in the original presentation box. The edge of the frame has just a couple of tiny ticks that really have to be searched for to locate. These are hard to find and would also be very easy to touch up. The box has a little bit of wear to the corners but is still in great shape and looks terrific. Really a lovely set that would look great in either a military or a medical oriented collection.
