    Post WWII. I would say not earlier than 1946 and not later that early 1950s. Thats when crimp brooch was issued with China service medal. During WWII (since 1940) China service was issued with so called wrap brooch.

    Is the rim numbered? If so it might give you a Chance of ID'ing medals owner. Usually only WWII period medals were numbered but many pre WWII servicemans who served in Chian in 1930s did't received their medal untill late 1940s or even 1950s. I have uniform of Marine sergeant whos China Service Medal for service in Nov. 1937 wasn't ready untill 1951!

    Only the USMC Pre-WWII China Service medals are numbered. They would be found with a wrap brooch.
