Unknown chinese/korean medals


Recommended Posts

Hi Gentlemen,

A friend of mine stumble into old order from China / Korean with japanese style bait on the ribbon. I can't read the inscription. Anyone can help us identify what is this?

 

Thank you,

Windu

Its real.. not sure exactly what it is. I am guessing its a civilian medal given out in the early period, like 1928 to 1930s.  The manufacturer also makes other medals, such as the Cloud and Banner. I saw one recently, a 2nd class, shown below.

Actually the back on the 4th class translates to "Silver Quality, 4th class, Medal" 銀質四等獎章

The 2nd class translates to "Gold Quality, 2nd class, Medal" 金質二等獎章

Correct me if I am wrong...

Maybe class 1-3 is gold, 4-6 is silver, and 7-9 is bronze?

On the obverse, 員會, means member. That is what I can tell so far..

    • 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
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.
