Interesting I have never before seen this award till a few days ago in this new auction catalog: http://www.coins-la-galerie-numismatique.com/viewauction.php?aid=60&id=220847

It is also listed as unknown there... but what a coincidence that this pops up twice now! do you have a picture of the medals backside?

Would suspect that the one in Stabouli's sale is 3rd class, Kim's is 2nd class and if we find an example with 3 stars that will be first class.

All the best,

Hello,

This is the Chinese ''Four Fundamental Virtues of the State Award'', second class.

Ref. Medal Collector, November ... 1968. Mr J.W. Peterson.

(These four virtues (Szu wei) are : Courtesy, Justice, Moral integrity and Decency). :whistle:

Such award was given to the French aviator Fieschi, late in the thirties or early in the forties , at the occasion of long distance flights from France to China, and services done as instructor in the Chinese air force.

Regards

Cuss

It's easier to find Chinese people in Sweden than Chinese awards. Statistics say about 20 000 chinese in Sweden. Chinese awards I have seen I can count on one hand...

A total aside, but Fieschi flew with SPA80 in the First World War, along with my first cousin once removed, Adjt. Antonin Gautier. They collided during a dogfight; Antonin was killed.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
