Chinese 1914 - 1918 medal

Recommended Posts

Thanks for posting the images of the Wu Bei Fu medals.

The Spink April 2011 auction had what I believe to be a complete set of these. The catalogue descriptions for the different medals were:

* Medal for Public Affairs and Public Service - rayed medal

* Medal for Technical Superiority - rayed medal

* Medal for Good Conduct - rayed medal

* Merit Medal for Shooting - circular medal

* Commendation Medal - hexagonal medal with Wu's portrait framed by a six-pointed star

Otherwise, there's very little information in English I am aware of on these medals, i.e. date of institution, etc.

One of the most informative threads on a rare and unusual subject. Thanks to all involved.

And here is the medal, with the adequate "Hungarian Chess Championship" ribbon...

That really makes the difference!

All the best to you all,

Jean-Samuel Karlen.

Yes, I can consider myself lucky:

1) to have found this medal for a starter, and

2) to have been able to complete it with the right - although from a weird provenance - ribbon.

And as we say, here, in this French-speaking-Lake-of-Geneva part of Switzerland: "Tout est bien qui finit bien!"
