I do not know a lot about these but it is an enlisted version with its box Whitehead and Hoag. Anyone have an Archive for these?

Interesting piece.I had never heard of this Order,so I did some research and found this great site:

 

http://chinamarine.o...ndEquipage.aspx

 

If you scroll about 3/4's of the way down you will see the medals.

 

The website states that what you have is the Imperial Order of the Dragon. As the Military Order of the Dragon medal was for officers, this medal was given to enlisted men.

 

Great find!

Imperial Order of the Dragon #674 was John J. Zalner.  Unfortunately, Zalner doesn't appear in the issue records for the China Relief medals, so he may have never gotten his federal award.  The 1900 Census does list him as a Landsman aboard USS Buffalo.

These medals are fantastic. The China Marine web page that is referenced is a great source of information.

Thanks.
