China marines qualification badge questions

Recommended Posts

hi folks,my wifes grandfather served a short stint in China and i was fortunate enough to be given his badges and some other items....my question is did they paint the badges white(mine are) or was this probably done by his kids over the years...i want to clean them up but not if that is how they were meant to be...thanks-scott

I would say painted by the kids. Now if it a white enamel diamond.....well that's a different story!
