Indochina Campaign Medal


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I´m after an Indochina campaign medal, and I would like to know your expert opinion about this one.

I know modern examples have less details and have a much lighter colour, almost a gold finish.

So, my question is: Is this medal a period manufactured piece, from the early 1950´s (even though you could purchase it later), but made on the late days of the Indochina conflict?

The picture is not very good, but I hope it shows my answer.

Thanks very much in advance.

Best regards,

This medal certainly looks like a period piece, not necessarily a Paris Mint stricking. I have the very same.

True connoisseurs will tell you more. There are also a number of home-made Indochineese medals; veterans of that conflict are very avid collectors of all varieties.

Hope you get more detailed information from other members.

Best regards
