Note: The China Medal is combattants issue in copper gilt, with 2 xofficially approved clasps, i.e., 'Liang-Hsiang-Hsien' & 'Peking' (only an estimated 251 x Marines from the III Seebataillon which was the German Marines or Naval Infantry battalion based permanently at Tsingtao, North China, from 1898, as garrison battalion to the East Asia Squadron base at Tsingtao) and the unofficial clasp 'Nan-Hung-Men'. Although the 'Peking' clasp was intended only for purchase and wear by recipients - where qualified - of III Seebataillon who had been at the 'Defence of Legations' in Peking 1900, in practise veterans who were in the relief and or post-siege occupation forces often also purchased and wore the 'Peking' clasp, albeit they may not have bene original defenders. All of the contemporary bronze-gilt 'tailors' clasps on the China medal are each attached with what appear to be either a single strap to reverse, or two bend-over pin fittings placed at either end of the backstraps of the clasps
The group mounted in the German style and presumably as-worn. The ribands all being contemporary issues and the reverse of the mounting bar retaining the original long hinged pin and clasp fitting. The red felt pad on the reverse of the mounting bar having the ink address of the military outfitter who mounted the medals, of which we think says; F. Brisch Sohn Nachflg, of Franz Ackermann, Koblenz (see illustrations for reverse image)
