This is from a Vietnamese Militaria collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. MDV12 LABEX4/17
7- (Very Fine-): The medal has definitely seen some wear. The pin is rusted in places and some of the enamel has been stripped
As with all my items, this piece is guaranteed original.
