Default Viet Nam Campaign Medal

Here is something I thought you International types might enjoy. It is a Vietnam Campaign Medal that was made in country. These were awarded by South Vietnam for 6 months of service, or for wounds or death in action. This indigenous made example is still in the original makers box. These in-country made pieces are quite crudely made and the obverse is hand painted. Strangely enough, these crude Nam made examples bring 5 to 6 times what US made ones bring. Enjoy, Jeff A
