    Beiyang Government Medal Type 1, 2 and 3?

    Wow, thanks Nick! So these two 1930's American Navy sailors would have been presented this medal? Or do you think it more likely they picked one up at a local shop to enhance this "fun" photo? That may also explain why they display the revers of the medal instead of the front as well. Thx Mark

    Beiyang Government Medal Type 1, 2 and 3?

    On another forum we had a member show a grouping belonging to a Navy man serving in China. He had a photo and managed to acquire all the medals except one which I was able to identify as this Type 1 medal. So having no back ground in early China and its Medals I am trying to put together the history of this Type 1 as well as the Type 2 and Type 3 and when, why, what, and whom they were made and presented. Does anyone have any information or can you point me in the right direction for this little project? The two sailors were part of the Yangtze Patrols in the 30's. It looks like they are both wearing the Type 1 medal with the revers (flags) showing. Many thanks! Mark
