Order of the Sacred Treasure
7th & 8th Classes
瑞宝章(七等・八等)
The design has the rays surrounding an Imperial Mirror central figure.

The 7th Class is gold gilt except for the center mirror, while the 8th
Class is entirely silver. Oftentimes the gold gilt is faded from the 7th
Class, and this causes it to be mistaken for an 8th Class. In addition,
the 8th Class often tarnishes, taking on some goldish hues, and this
causes it to be mistaken for a faded 7th Class.

The sizes and inscriptions on the two are the same, so care must be
taken to distinguish them from each other. Of course, 7th Class
medals that are in fine condition are easy to spot.
