Hi All

As part of a discussion on ebay, I took a look at Thailand Korea United Nations UN Service Medal variations I have observed. 

A quick filter for type is the small gap on the suspension knob, however there are many other small differences such as the map details, lettering, etc.

  • 1. Type wide gap on suspension knob
  • 2. Type narrow gap on suspension knob
  • 2a. Type narrow gap on suspension knob, finer strike (presumably earlier ?)
  • 3. Mike Shank copy - all features thicker, especially Thai characters on the reverse.

Perhaps others have additional examples, information about these examples, or other comments.

Rgds,
Dave

It is very similar to the above type 2. But the details much finer.

I received it is poor condition, and had to clean it up to get this condition.

The details are not as sharp. The Thai characters are all not as nice - I suppose it could have been done by a Thai, but it is not as nice. (Its not exactly how I learned to write, but some of the characters are more correct.) Some of the upper accents are very thick (flattened ? maybe it was smashed ? Maybe someone has other examples to compare)

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • 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 .
