China Incident Commemorative Medal

Recommended Posts

That being said, Nick, no cases or award documents have ever been found, correct? Why is this? If anyone has a picture, post it ASAP!

And, indeed, this medal is still hard to find compared to many of the other official Japanese medals, so calling is scarce or rare is not wrong, IMO.

Excellent info. As usual, Nick Komiya comes through with fantastic stuff. He really should write a book. Thanks Nick K, and thanks Nick from Russia for this insight. Still a bit strange that no cas

Dear Mr. Ulsterman, It appears I owe you an apology. You have a memory that is working. Forgive me for suggesting it never happened. I do that quite a bit these days much to the consternation of m

It's rare of course!

Especially when we compare it with our usual banal medals.

And yes, still no cases (except wrapper that we saw) and no docs.

I know what you are thinking about Rich ;)

"Never really issued"

It is indeed possible ...

Chris, I think partly this is because of the light (but I believe we can see yellowness that is so dear to your heart ;)) + medal was covered in deep black patina, so seller decided (like she does it from time to time :whistle:) to do some presale cleaning (I think special cleaning agent for bronze).

Voilà tout :)

    • I've never smoked a single cigarette in my 62 years so I can't compare, but I can say that I like Lapsang Souchong tea, having tasted it the first time when I was 16, and a sea cadet. I'm not a Brit, though.
    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
