1950's North Vietnamese Army (NVA) "Spring 1954" Commemorative Dien Bien Phu pin. The pin shows a soldier taking aim with a Vietnamese flag above in red and yellow painted detail and it reads: "OUYET CHIEN OUYET THANG". Along the top of the pin in red detail it reads: "XUAN 1954" and along the bottom in green detail it reads: "CHIEN SY DIEN BIEN PHU". The Battle of Dien Bien Phu was a major turning point in the First Indochina War. French forces were fighting to 'force out communism' in the region, but poor decision making and military blunders saw their defeat in 1954. The aftermath was addressed during the Geneva Convention of 1954, which divided the country into two parts Communist North Vietnam and pro-Western South Vietnam. This landmark ruling and the fall-out from the First Indochina War led to the start of the American War in Vietnam.
Approximately 1" in diameter.
MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION:
Painted, plated brass.
Horizontal safety style pin.
This is from a Vietnamese militaria collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. MCX16 LFJX5/16 SFJX01/18
6+ (FineVery Fine): The commemorative pin shows moderate to heavy wear and some paint loss, some of the plated and painted details remain intact.
