Unknown chinese/korean medals

Recommended Posts

Hi Gentlemen,

A friend of mine stumble into old order from China / Korean with japanese style bait on the ribbon. I can't read the inscription. Anyone can help us identify what is this?

 

Thank you,

Windu

I don't recognize it either.  But it reminds me a lot of other, well known fantasy pieces.

The ribbon at least looks like the korean_Crown Prince's Wedding Medal

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..
