Can anybody decipher the writing on this medal?
It looks like the Chinese Small Seal script, but I can only work out a few of the characters at the top: (reading from right to left) “開業二拾”.
The top line looks like ”開業二拾年紀念” 20 years anniversary of opening.
The bottom line looks like “大正十四年十月”
The two “年” in the top and the bottom are different but I think they are just different forms of the same character.
If the bottom line says 大正十四年十月, then this is the 14th year of the Japanese period called Taisho (大正 tai-shou). This would be 1925.
