    Unknown chinese/korean medals

    Its real.. not sure exactly what it is. I am guessing its a civilian medal given out in the early period, like 1928 to 1930s. The manufacturer also makes other medals, such as the Cloud and Banner. I saw one recently, a 2nd class, shown below. Actually the back on the 4th class translates to "Silver Quality, 4th class, Medal" 銀質四等獎章 The 2nd class translates to "Gold Quality, 2nd class, Medal" 金質二等獎章 Correct me if I am wrong... Maybe class 1-3 is gold, 4-6 is silver, and 7-9 is bronze? On the obverse, 員會, means member. That is what I can tell so far..

    Personal Chinese Medal of 1945

    The cloth is pictured on the wrong side. I am sure the ink would be easier to read on the other side.

    Unknown Chinese medal

    I don't know about if these are real or not.. I have seen some of these for sale, but the sellers also list those fantasy fakes with it...

    Order of the White Tiger

    This would be an obvious statement, but there is probably a black and white background one. So far the ribbons correspond to the colored background of the white tiger. larsb001, I would recommend making another topic for others to see and discuss the medal bar Looks more like a lion on the medal bar btw

    Japanese visor hat

    Enlisted visors are harder to find. Enlisted do not have silk lining and has a tag to write name with a different lining. Visors are different by the material used too.

    Qing Double Dragon breast order size

    Thanks KimKan
  9. Saw this a few weeks ago and noticed the size was 7.5 cm. Did they come this small?
  10. Hi Wendell, thanks for the information! I assume the medal was lost long ago? Anybody know if Special Breast Order is what class? I am guessing 8th or 9th?

    Group of 4 PLA medals

    Good observations.. I know there are really bad fakes, but either could be real or genuine, not to sure..

    Japanese Tunic

    Also, get a medal bar. From what I can tell, I don't see a strings to attach medals though.

    Chinese General's ribbon bar?

    Thanks for the information. Good to know. Seems confusing a bit, but I understand what they are for now.

    Chinese General's ribbon bar?

    I never understood how they arranged their ribbon bars or the medals that they represent. I think there is somewhat of a pattern, but not really? It seems that every one I see, it looks all the same medals being awarded (multiple times).

    Chinese enamel medal - identification help?

    This is an interesting one. I know the details aren't that great. Although they are starting to mimic the specks in the enamel in which I seen real ones have at times. It also has the similar silver color like the large fake/fantasy breast badges they are making.
