Award for Victory, Taiwan?

Recommended Posts

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.

    • 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.
