  1. There are FOUR types of this medal: the first three bear reverse inscriptions and the annual dates 1951, 1952, and 1953. The final type is completely smooth on back with no date, and was awarded from 1954 until approximately 1959, when the "friendship" wore periodically thin. The dated types seem to be Chinese made, while the smooth backs are of noticably finer quality-- and are the ONLY type found cased, that I have seen. I don't have a 1951 version. Here are, first, 1952, 1953 and smooth back side by side for relative size comparison: The sewn ribbons are generally soft-- without backings, and attach with the usual tiny Chinese ribbon pin. Stars are always found on the full size ribbon as an extra embellishment signifying nothing. The oldest example here replaced a missing Chinese made star with a Soviet junior officer rank star. No stars were worn on ribbon bars: Although double awards ARE known from photographic evidence of the medals being worn, documentation of which variety or varieties is not. On a ribbon bar, since this ribbon was shared by a variety of Chinese Civil War medals, exact identification is not possible.
  2. Hi, I've just bought these medals. Unfortunately, I bought them before I had properly researched the topic here (lesson for the future methinks!), and I am pretty much resigned to them being fakes (fortunately I only paid a couple of dollars per piece). Am I right? Are they even copies of real medals or pure fantasy pieces? All best & any information is much appreciated! BP
  3. Who can help me with the identification of this Chinese medal and the translation of the inscription, thanks Medal of Kuomintang ??? Guy
  4. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Military_Museum_of_the_Chinese_People's_Revolution Visited this great museum around Xmas time. It was EXTREMELY cold (a Chinese colleague had told me it was nice and sunny in Beijing and I had neglected to look up what that would mean temperature wise... let's just say wearing a polo shirt with thin pullover was NOT sufficient, it did make a lot of Chinese smile at me because they thought i was crazy to walk around outside like that). Anyway, in that bitter cold i rushed to checkout the Mao mausoleum and then to the military museum before heading back to the airpot for onwards flight to Australia (another great museum there: http://gmic.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=47395&pid=437139&st=0&#entry437139) I think pics of the Beijing museum have been posted before, but not yet of the top floor which focusses on the Korean war. Interesting to read there that China came to the help of the Koreans attached by US, while reading in the Canberra museum a week later that it was the Ozzies who came to the help of Korea against the attach by the Chinese etc.) Anyway - some DPRK relevant pics... all fake i think (unfortunately) Any chinese translation help would be much appreciated - more than curious as to what made these guys earn their DPRK awards:)
  5. Hello, everyone. I just pick up this badge with a group of other mao badges. Does anyone know what this badge is for and what does it say?
  6. Hi I have this long knife very nice and well done but I could not even identify it .. The sheath would seem the U.S., but not use it ... the star button to other evidence points to a state socilista perhaps China or Korea that may have copied the dagger by the Americans? .. I found it in the Balkans, and for this and I thought the star button to a former satellite was the Soviet Union, but the bill seems too good for these states, you know help me? Quelch you mind?
  7. Is there any such thing as Chinese PLA award for service in Vietnam? If so, what are they called, and can one be had without taking out a second mortgage?
  8. This lady is one of the most popular singers in the PR of China. She is best known for her patriotic and ethnic songs. She is also a Major General of the Chinese People's Army. Additionally, she is the wife of Chinese Vice-President Xi Jinping. I recently saw in a magazine a photo of her at a performance, in a uniform with a nice array of ribbons. Any idea about Ms. Peng's honours? An interesting thing is that although the ribbons seem to repeat, they are worn in a random sequence. Closeup:
  9. This is a medal for the Tiananmen Square Protests of 1989. It has also been called the Tiananmen Square Massacre and in China it is known as the June Fourth Incident. This medal was issued to the People's Liberation Army participants for service during the Tiananmen Square Revolt of 1989. The medal is 2.56 in. high and 1.625 in. wide at it's widest point The medal ribbon bar is 1.75 in. long and .50 in. wide and has a small pin on the reverse. The presentation box the medal comes in has a red material covering with flower designs over all the box and there is writing on the lid of the box. On the inside, the cover has white material with a red ribbon in the lower left corner and the bottom where the medal and ribbon rests is a burgandy color and an indentation for the ribbon and medal to sit into. The catch is a white plastic wedge which fits into a loop. The box is 4.56 in long, 2.5 in wide and .56 in. thick. Bob
  10. Hello, everyone. I pick up this Visor Cap from Ebay for $10.50 and I was told that it is a field's visor cap but I am not so sure about that. I have been looking at photos of Chinese Troops in the field and yet to see any photos of this cap being wore out in the field? Could it be just an Enlisted dress or field visor? Maybe an Officer's? I am not sure. Maybe someone could shine some light on this subject?
  11. In the last three years I started to notice a lot of different medals from the PRC on different sale sites. A friend of mine bought these medals, quite cheap (sold as originals of course).. The quality are, as you can see, very poor.. So does anyone have more informations or reference photos to what they are? Suggestions, comments and any info are most welcomed! Cheers! Péter China # 1.
  12. I found this supposed Chinese submarine badge (as they called it) and wonder if it is just mis-labelled or a fantasy piece. I know the Chinese didn't have subs until the 1950s so that's why I'm confused. It is apparently made of some lower quality alloy material and I would have assumed with the sun in the center it would have been WWII era or late 1930s but I have never seen one before. Any clues?
  13. Hello, does anyone know if there are any Chinese/ Taiwanese or Singaporean military history / militaria (like the GMIC) groups or discussion forums? Ranjit.
  14. I just acquired a small grouping of PRC medals and badges, shown in the first photo. I am presuming that the badge with the enameled Chinese flag behind the soldier is a fake. This is because, knowing little about Chinese material except what I have found here and on one or two other sites, I have just developed the belief that the Chinese awards that look like they were created from Hershey chocolate bars, such as this badge, are copies. But I have no real knowledge, as I say. Even assuming it's a fake, can anyone tell me what it is a fake of? In other words, what was an original example of the badge meant to recognize. Since it is dated "1950" on the reverse I'm guessing it had something to do with the Korean War. The other thing, and I don't know if my photos will reflect this, is that the badge seems very nicely struck with crisp details. Thank you, guys, for any help!
  15. I have had this stick grenade for awhile and have only ever found one other example online before. There, it was listed as a Chicom practice grenade but I don't know anything else about it or if that is in fact true. Has anyone dealt with them before? Is 58 the manufacture year? Any clue what the rest says? It is in beautiful condition and since I haven't come across many to compare it to I wonder how rare and/or valuable they really are. It's outside my field of interest so I probably won't hang on to it forever although I would like to know more about it. Mike
  16. I have lurked in the forums for awhile, always reading, but never posting, but decided to chime in with a concern I have. I'm sure a handful of you out there have either recieved or read the Smoky Mountain Knife Works catalog. Some stuff is nice, but yeah, they sell a lot of crap too. What concerned me was they are selling a 10 piece lot of "Chinese War Medals" (see here: http://www.smkw.com/webapp/eCommerce/product.jsp?Mode=Text&SearchText=chinese&SKU=SMRR222 ) I had a handful of these that I acquired about a year ago and discovered that these cheap construction medals were fake. Now it seems SMKW is selling fake medals too. I'm trying to determine if they have worded the sale a little vague so if they are accused of selling fakes they are covered. No where does it say they are "authentic issue medals". All it says is they are "authentic relics", well.....yeah, that doesn't tell anyone anything. And, "ages, styles, and materials vary". Well of course they do. I've been to the store once before and they seemed pretty nice, but I wonder if they would even care to know these were fake. Probably not. Mike
  17. Gents, I just won these medals in an auction. The North Korean one in the lower left hand corner I recognize but the rest are all a mistery to me. If you can identify them, and post a picture with the correct suspension piece, I would be very greatfull. An idea of value would also help. I am not asking this for resale purposes. Just so I know the value of what I bought. The lot averages out to about 10 euros each. Regards, Gordon
  18. Here is the latest addition to my collection here is sellar description: Fascinating medal awarded by the North Vietnamese Govt. to Soviet specialists who participated in the Vietnamese war. The USSR provided technical assistance across all arms particularly aviation and artilery. This one is cased in a chinese style red silk covered case, numbered and has the letters V.N.D.C.C.H. The case also has the same number and the name 'L. Tsederpil' writen on the back. Medal is a little worn, but the quality of manufacture was not excellent to begin with. However this is gold washed silver (not aluminium) with plastic enamel. If any one has any more info plese let me know Order of Victory
  19. I know someone else has posted a picture of one somewhere, but can't find it! This arrived in the post today a bargain for 99 cents? or is it a copy? Beautiful deep blue enamel, and a nice design.

  23. Hello Everyone, My little brother is going to China in August for a lengthy stay and has offered to look for medals while there. I am thinking of sending some money with him for this purpose. Now if you knew my little brother you would know that sending money with him to a country half way around the world in itself may not be the soundest of ideas. After reading many posts dealing with this topic and not knowing much (much, meaning nothing) about this topic I am wondering if the idea is only a waste oif time on his part and cash on mine. There seems to be a lot of fakes on the market and I've read this is for the "tourist trade". From this I take it that the fake medals are available in China and sold there to tourists. Is this the case? My brother is not a tourist in the normal sense as he is going there to teach. Is it worth while to have him keep an eye open for medals while there? He will be living in one of the smaller cities (I have forgotten which one) so is there a better chance of finding "real" military medals? I thought this might be a good chance to start a whole new thread to my collection. Any thoughs are most welcomed. Cheers Brian
  24. Are there any pics-info regarding current orders and decorations of the People's Republic of China out there?
  25. Cased. Numbered 04673. No document or attribution Awarded to junior officers for service in the Revolutionary War during the War of Liberation Period (3 September 1945 to 30 June 1950). In effect, this is the medal for the final phase of the Civil War.
