NVM medal Determined to defeat the US invasion

This is a little bit crazy for me. I have never been a collector of VN era items, and have never really handled anything NVA, other than an occasional pith helmet or an SKS. Last night, I was talking to a neighbor, a VN veteran and he was talking about NV "BOTTLE CAP MEDALS." I had no idea what he was talking about. Seeing the one in this thread has turned the lightbulb on for me. Now I understand what he was talking about.

Now to see if he can find the ones he says that he brought home...

Interesting. I never encountered the medal with the ribbon, but the two pips are South Vietnamese 2nd Lieutenant rank blossoms. I can't recall if they were plum blossoms or something else, but they are ARVN.
