It should weigh 26.8 g. It looks cast and make sure the reeding is constant and not over lapping. The details are lacking too especially on the junk boat. There are a lot of copies around.

Looks like the belt buckle has a smaller circle.

GMIC is mostly a medals forum. It would be better to post other items here on WAF.

I think to attach a white liner so the inside edge does not get dirty. I have seen a few pictures with it on parade frock coats, not sure if this tunic would have it.

ROC military police hat/helmet badge. Does not look too old, probably 50s-70s period. Depending on size, it could have been worn on a helmet.

So, the US didn't allow ROK to have any tanks? And why was it denied?

The Chinese (CCP) did have Japanese weapons given to them by the Soviets after 1945 to help them out in the civil war.

Kanji is a term to describe the Chinese characters used in Japanese writing. Therefore, the Japanese use Kanji and the Chinese use Hanzi. Kanji should not describe the Chinese writing itself!

The breast order (1st picture) is a known fake currently from China (sold on ebay often).

The copper medal is a victory medal. Looks good.

The small pins look pre-1949 vintage.

These are made for tourists or as souvenirs and not worth much. There are a lot of variations, most are fantasies and a few are based on actual medals. You can find them on ebay.
