I have always seen three classes for the service medal. Never heard of if being 4 classes.

There was an ebay seller that gave odd description of a service medal he has as a Japanese/Taiwanese WWII Marshall medal. Had it for sale for several hundred dollars. Had a laugh with that one. Very common medals in Taiwan.

The others I think are organization medals. None of them look like government issued stuff. Close pictures would be better.

Looks like the others may be government civilian awards after all. I got the second one translated, if I have time, I will get the others translated. Hopefully somebody can get the others.

Second one is a ROC Ministry of Interior 中華民國內政部 medal. Medal seems to be a service medal, first class. 役政一等獎章

Thank you for the help.  Here are some closer pics.

I was just going by Chinese Wikipedia, which lists 1st, 2nd, 3rd and "Special" Classes:

服務獎章
特(任职满四十年) 公教人员服务成绩优良者,于退休(职)、资遣、辞职或死亡时    
1(任职满三十年)
2(任职满二十年)
3(任职满十年)

Oh yes, 1960s hat a lot of insignias and medals were anodized aluminum. The medals just had paint enamel, not that great looking. Right, prior and post were better. I think some current high rank issue medals are silver again.

I went back and checked, my uncle was awarded the 10yr medal in 1987. Too bad the govt stopped matching medal number on the certificate.. the medals and certificates have different serial numbers.

    • 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.
