China Incident Commemorative Medal

Recommended Posts

That being said, Nick, no cases or award documents have ever been found, correct? Why is this? If anyone has a picture, post it ASAP!

And, indeed, this medal is still hard to find compared to many of the other official Japanese medals, so calling is scarce or rare is not wrong, IMO.

It's rare of course!

Especially when we compare it with our usual banal medals.

And yes, still no cases (except wrapper that we saw) and no docs.

I know what you are thinking about Rich ;)

"Never really issued"

It is indeed possible ...

Nick,

Looks like the material of medal in post 243/244 is different. It doesn't look like the "ordinary" bronze one. Or is it only bad view on picture?

Chris, I think partly this is because of the light (but I believe we can see yellowness that is so dear to your heart ;)) + medal was covered in deep black patina, so seller decided (like she does it from time to time :whistle:) to do some presale cleaning (I think special cleaning agent for bronze).

Voilà tout :)
