This is a beautiful copper chinese medal with red enamel on the front of a five pointed star with the symbol of the hammer and sickle. The recipient of this medal had the honor at the time of receiving this medal from Lin Biao.
The medal reads 鄂(the abbreviation of Hu Bei Province)东兵工厂 Eastern Hubei Arsenal on the front.
The back has 林彪颁发 [issued by Lin Biao]
Lin Biao was very well known in China and was quite close to Chairman Mao. I am guessing at the time of the medal to be post 1940s pre the "Lin Biao Incident" After the incident it would have been a shame for someone in China to possess this medal let alone wear it in public. Hence, how it has made it's way to the United States.
