Hello, I would like to post the pictures of a badge that's unknown to me, found some years ago at a militaria auction in Italy.

 

I'd be glad if anyone could identify it!

 

All the best,

 

Enzo (E.L.)

Thank you very much for again helping me!

 

is this badge connected to Police, due to the "Public Security" thing? Is the number struck to the reverse to be considered as its award number?

 

Many thanks again,

 

Enzo

Regarding public security.

Regarding number.

 

Many early chinese badges from 1949+ time period were numbered, so mumber per se doesn`t mean that this or that badge is an award one.

Reverse clearly states that this is 纪念 - commemorative badge.

Nice to hear from you again Elmar.

I know you're a gran aficionado of Militär-Maria-Theresien-Orden so hopefully you'll find this interesting

Wellington's badge, sash and breast star of military order of Maria Theresa.
