Republic of China Ceremonial Dagger + Photo + Medal


Recommended Posts

Greetings Al.

I am a collector and seller.  I have an opportunity to buy a lot of Republic of China, which includes a ceremonial dagger, a photo of an ROC soldier and some type of medallion.  I know nothing about these.  If you know what they are and which era, that would be great info.  I am also curious about what it says on the reverse of the photo, as well on either side of the dagger.

Any and all info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.  Linas

The letter is dated 1950, which doesn't represent the photo of Chiang's (it looks like him to me) uniform which is from the Northern Expedition period. I don't know if his signature is his or not as aides would sign in his name at times too when he has them write down notes.

    • 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.
