  20. Beiyang Government Medal Type 1, 2 and 3?

    Quite possible. Another possible scenario: original recipient (or even officials) gave it to him (as a token of appreciation, memento, etc) because of shortage/unavailability of contemporary awards (or by some reason he couldn't be qualified for them). Best, Nick
