Very nice WWII era Chinese Order of the Resplendent Banner VII Class Officer Badge with ribbon bar. At times, referred to as “Order of the Clouds & Banner”, this medal is awarded in nine grades for contributions to national security. The medal is an ornate, enameled silver multi-layer construction. The silk ribbon is colored, with a red outer stripe, yellow thin stripe, and a wide white center stripe with a silk rosette. The reverse shows Chinese characters and is #’d 1890.
