I believe if it doesn't have the stringy things, it is a junior officer, like ensign. Admiral rank would have a wavy bullion insignia added.

I haven't seen a cap like this so far. It would be for winter period I assume. Does the string stitching color match with the rest of the hat?

Yeah commander I think. Red sleeve piping is medical? You would need the medical (red) field officer dress sword belt. It isn't easy to find.

Took a while to find an engineering for mine. I have...

The thing with medal bars, is that they can be modified to whatever somebody wants it to be. There are a few originals out there. Plus, there are plenty of blank medal bars out there.

Matching a visor to a uniform

It doesn't seem to easy to find a matching visor since the visor has a branch, regiment number, and rank to a uniform. So three variables need to be met. I have a 23/24th infantry regiment captain...

Doesn't look cloisonné enamel. Looks like it is painted. There is a lot of wear where the copper is showing through the colors.

I think it is the Type 98 formal dress uniform. It would have both the gold shoulder boards (very similar to the army dress frock coat) and with collar tabs.

Officers had their uniforms tailored and it depends on the tailor if they choose to have their company name in English or not. Enlisted uniforms are govt made and don't have it in English.

Yes, Chinese sword. I have one that is similar in condition to yours. It is missing the grip part, which is made out of string or something like that that is wrapped around it.
