HERE IS A SUPER RARE NUMBERED M. NO 1069, US MARINE CORP ORIGINAL ISSUED YANGTZE SERVICE MEDAL There where very few of these awarded to Marines. It has the old clasp and ribbon and did not glow. Medal is in good shape for almost a 100 years old. Please look over and ask questions as we know this is a rare and valuable piece for any collector to have. Some folks just don’t appreciate history and preserving it for us collectors. With what little research I could do, all I could find was one m. 1052 was issued to a marine corp Colonel on who served on the USS HENDERSON AIRCRAFT SQUADRON in 1927. A list of the marines in the squadron would most likely help getting closer to the Marines name. Some more digging should come up with him.
