Three post-war gold-plated badges related to the Japanese Emperor. Two have the original cases.

the throne in 1926, this is probably circa 1976.

2 table medals, in silver and gold. Commemorating the 1964 Tokyo Olympics,
but not explicitly. Perhaps these were unofficial pieces that didn't get Olympics
approval.

'Tokyo 1964' and 'THE XVIIIth BIG EVENTS' are the obvious clues, the 1964
Olympics being the 18th.

Some nicks and fading. No cases.

Item name: 18th

Seoul 1988 Olympics commemorative coins. It looks like this
was a set and probably had a larger case to house all of these

box (removable), so I'm not sure. And I'm not sure if all the
pieces are present.

The reverses are identical.
