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

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.
