Chinese-DPRK medal, need help identifying

Recommended Posts

Gday Gents,

Here i have what looks to be a PRC badge of some sort which i picked up at a flea market in Beijing.

-Made of BRASS which shows clear signs of oxidation and ageing in recessed areas

-Would be great if anyone could identify this for me and translate the inscription on the back

-Would also be great if anyone could value this in US dollars for me

Thanks,

中朝友谊纪念章 1954

But unfortunately this is a modern chinese fake.

Simply google 中朝友谊纪念章 1954 and see for yourself. 

Chinese analogue of mondvor site doesn`t exist.
