    Michael,
    I'm sure you searched this subject, but for those that have not. Here is the site for those Devil Dogs and where I had gotten that pic.

    Good morning to everybody. It is eight thirty on Saturday morning in northwestern Spain.
    I see you have not wasted your time.
    Well, there are the pictures of my China Service Medal. I have fifteen American decorations, which I must recognize that they are really very beautiful, and well sculpted and with colored ribbons always very accurate.
    I admit that it is not my specialty, so I thank you in advance for any information about what exactly I own.
    Thanks again to all and best regards.

    I have to take the opportunity to upload the images of another decoration of my collection that I really do not know much about. I bought it about twenty years ago.
    Thanks again.

    The ancient Chinese sailing ship: the Junk on its obverse.... The eagle on the anchor on the back of the medal... Perfect.

    I know that historically they should not be together (for the periods in which both were granted) but I could not resist taking a picture of the two medals together.

    Both awards are original but are replacement examples. Produced from the late 60 ' s to current era. The give away are the maker marks on the pin bar.

    The Yangtze example was issued for service in the Yangtze River Valley from 1926 to 1936. The other China example is what I described in my post.
