    Default China Incident War Medal

    Hey,

    Just showing another of my Imperial Japanese medals the "China Incident War Medal" established in 1939 and abolished in 1946 made of bronze.

    1 out of 5 on the rarity scale, a common medal, Millions were
    made.

    The ribben is said to represent the following- Dark and light blue (the
    sea and the Navy), tan (the soil of China, for the Army), dark
    pink (the bloodstained soil of China), bright red (blood and loyalty).
    No presentation case or award document with this one im afraid, the medal is very common as i stated before but the case and ducument are extrememly rare for this as most were simply thrown away or lost.


    I hope to upload some clearer more honest pics soon taken in natural light. if i have time i will take and upload some better pics as soon as tomorrow.

    Cheers-

    Darren

    hi darren , as you say , these medals are plentiful , but this does not detract from what is a super looking piece , i particularly like the way the medal is mounted .

    Thanks mate,

    i agree, natural light is the way to go. Taking pics indoors makes peices look either redish or bright gold.

    A fine medal, great mounting and has a nice patina to it. I am hopeing to get a replacment case and documents for it at some stage but they arnt easy to find.

    Cheers-

    Darren.
