Chinese Medals

Recommended Posts

Here is the Order of Precious Tripod, 6th class with a Order of the Cloud and Banner (also Resplendent Banner), 6th class that I have.

 

There is a big difference between the originals and the common copies that are known as "tourist" pieces. There are a few much better copies of Cloud and Banners that came out a few years ago. The difference is the serial number font and enameling. Original medals were made out of silver too.

 

There are also Taiwan issued ones, those have a shinier gilt to it with a different font for the serial number and hallmark (made by central printing). Some medals were brought back from the mainland and refurbished in Taiwan, they are pre-1949 made, but post 1949 issued.

 

I will post more Chinese medals I have in this thread later on.

Beautiful medals...

Planchets from there are always amazingly detailed and complex, wonderful workmanship, from what little I know.

Thanks Bluehawk. Yes, the details, especially the enameling was a work of art.

Some medals I assume were awarded to CBI US servicemen. I bought these from US sources, mostly eBay. Two of these I posted from the first post above.
