Hi to all,
This is an albanian major in uniform model 1952. The picture is around 1960. The medal marked is not albanian one. Looks like something Chinese, or Korean, or Vietnamese. Or maybe it's from some Eastern European country. Can anyone help me identify him?
Thanks in advance,

If Vietnamese, AKA Gold Star Medal type 1-- see GMIC topic Socialist Republic of Vietnam - Gold Star Order.

Might be Bulgarian Hero of Peoples Republic, as star looks broad.

In either case,  suspension ribbon pin shape looks like a truncated isosceles form rather than rectangular.

Gents, I'm not sure the gold star Hero of Vietnam was created in 1960. And remember ALL Hero star are worn on left chest.


Also te suspension doesn't fit at all: I see it shapped as an arc, or a kind of trapeze, not a rectangle.

It makes me think of this chinese medal: not the same, but similar style:
