Not sure if this Burmese award is included in forum

Sadly this is a unnamed medal

Google search says "A large (51mm) gold medal awarded during the colonial period. The Burmese on reverse reads: Ahmu-dan-gaung Tazeik-ya Min (An official who has been awarded the medal for good service) and entitled to use the letters ATM after his name. The two other levels of the order were: Kyet thaye zaung Salweya Min (An official who has been awarded the Sash of Glory) and used the letters KSM after name; Thuye gaung ngwe Daya Min (An official who has been awarded the Silver Sword for Heroism) and used the letters TDM after name. "

Lone Wolf,

An interesting Medal and certainly one I have not come across before. Do you know the official title of this Medal, I have checked my resources and can't find it, also wondered if you know what ribbon was used?

Regards Simon.

 Beautiful. I’ve never seen one before. When Professor Google called it a “gold medal”, was he refering to the colour or the content of the metal? Very nice, indeed!

@peter monahan this is Burmese equivalent to title badge, the difference is this is made out of gold and title badges were struck in silver

Yes Mike it seems it's referring to it's content.

There were 3 categories if this medal, however I have never seen other two

What a grand piece of work!  Many thanks for showing us.  I was thinking 
Title badge" before I read Peter's comment.  Feeling mildly smug.

Excellent!  Another tidbit of really valuable info. to add to what a former girlfriend called my 'storehouse of mental dross'! ;)

Serioulsy, this sort of thing is why I haunt this site - nowhere else would people know or care about such beautiful and historically important objects.
