Award for Victory, Taiwan?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Taiwan instituted a victory award called the Chiang Kai-Shek Victory Order (picture posted below) but it does not look like your star EXCEPT for the 8 stars on the medallion ring. 

Even though there is no official documentation, I suppose it is possible that the Taiwan government changed the design of its Victory Order after the death of Chiang Kai-Shek by replacing his image in the center medallion with the nationalist "Sun."  

How did you come about to call it an "Award For Victory" from Taiwan?  Did it come in a box, have a label, or does it have an inscription?

Hello Gentlemen,

Many many "fantasy" fake Order coming out from China, a lot of them never ever have existed in the 1910..1920ies...30ies at all. So....beware of "odd items".

One of the main common thing about these fake, is the poor quality of enameling, that doesn't match what was the then quality o enameling "cloisonné" or not that was used in the 1910ies, 20ies, 30ies.....

Also these fakes are NOT silver, but made of poor quality metal alloy, that are silvered......

Keep in mind, that for Orders of China, before 1937...and after for ROC ( Republic of China ), they were silver gilt. Medal from that era were sometimes made of silver. 

If you got the opportunity to "touch" the item before, the sensation of touch feeling is not the same, as silver is cold, when you touch it, but the sensation feeling when you touch something in poor quality alloy, it's not the same.

Also "faker" will use whatever trick could be, to deceive collector, by intending to states that they are selling a very rare, early variation, or later one, but not yet known from collectors, => use common sense, do not believe in fairy tales. And this apply to many fields of the phaleristic.

Regards to all.

    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian  
    • I know the way I got into collecting is like so many other people; through a sibling. I also know that my love of history is barely unique in a place like this. So I know I have a shared background with many people. A less shared area - perhaps - is that I've always loved the thrill of the chase. When I decide I want, say, a 1914 trio with an original bar, to a cavalry unit, the utter thrill of getting out there and, (a) finding groups that fit the criteria and, (b) comparing them re: ranks, uni
