Photo with unknown breast star


Recommended Posts

Not sure what it could be. I'm not sure it is the Chinese one as the one being worn seems to have 10 points whereas the Chinese one has 8 and the tiger seems to be taking up a lot of space in the center whereas it doesn't seem that way in the photo. Maybe another Chinese award - or from another country.

This is a fake breast star.

Good work. Certainly rare to see Germans with Chinese Orders!
