Help needed with this RVN Campaign Medal

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

I was wondering if anyone could help me out with a time frame and maybe place of manufacture for this medal. The brooch looks like a cheaply made clutch back affair and the device says 1960.

Cheers.

Rob

To me it looks like an original 60's RVN made piece. It's a nice medal.

Back when I was there in the Navy (1966-7) this medal was awarded after, I think, six months in Vietnam waters- but the medal itself was never issued. You had to buy it yourself if you wanted to have one. They were all pretty cheaply made.

The one I have has had the little fire in the center of the map of Vietnam fall out. Symbolic?

Hello to you,

Model of Japanese manufacturing, a version rather rare to find.
