LIMITED ITEM. SURPLUS - PREVIOUSLY OWNED. Once they are gone we may not get any more. Sold As Is - NON-REFUNDABLE.
This medal comes with a pin that has the ribbon colors in a bow tie on the pin. I have never seen a pin like this. The bow tie pin looks like there should be something hanging from it? The Yangtze Service Medal is a decoration of the United States military which was created in 1930 for presentation to members of the U.S. Navy and United States Marine Corps. The Yangtze Service Medal is awarded for service in the Yangtze River Valley between the dates of September 3, 1926 and December 31, 1932.The decoration may also be awarded for those military service members who served on permanent duty in Shanghai, China, provided such service was in direct support of landing operations in the Yangtze River Valley (e.g. Nanjing incident). The Yangtze Service Medal was declared obsolete in 1940.
This particular medal has been in a display cabinet in our store for many years. It has been kept in a plastic bag. Beautiful medal. Great for anyone's collection.
