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.

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 :)

    • 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.
