  1. 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
  2. Order of the White Tiger

    Here is another class. It is a blue version.
  3. 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.
  4. Qing Double Dragon breast order size

    Thanks KimKan
  5. Saw this a few weeks ago and noticed the size was 7.5 cm. Did they come this small?
  6. 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?
  7. Group of 4 PLA medals

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

    Also, get a medal bar. From what I can tell, I don't see a strings to attach medals though.
  9. Chinese General's ribbon bar?

    Thanks for the information. Good to know. Seems confusing a bit, but I understand what they are for now.
  10. 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).
  11. 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.
  12. INTERESTING MEDAL AUCTION 1/17/2017 at 9 AM

    I think thats Iranian or something.
  13. Unknown

    I have always wanted to create a database of these things as there are dozens of designs out there. Not sure if worth much effort

    Their translation of it is way off from what I can read. Its anti/fight Japanese badge. I know the first couple words on the 2nd line says 3rd war zone/area. Not sure where they got a "5" from. Soldier has his rifle pointed at the "rising sun." Like the others said, fakes or fantasies of badges to sell to tourists.
  15. Type 56 (AK-47) Rifle

    I believe the tip is to help reduce the recoil. When the rifle is fired, the recoil forces it to go up. As the gas leaves the barrel, the bottom tip part diverts the gas to leave from the top forcing the rifle to go down. Both forces try to balance out and thus reducing recoil and improves aim while firing. Its a beautiful AK by the way!
