  1. 1886 Tonkin Military Medal. Bust representing the Republic of France facing left. The headset is garnished with wings and feathers and Patrie (Motherland) is written across the front. The style of this piece definitely was influenced by the realistic Roman portraiture. The reverse read Tonkin Chine Annam 1883-1885 referencing the Franco-Sino War fought over the northern portion of modern Viet-Nam. This medal was issued to about 90,000 veteran of the overall conflict. Silver 30mm. This version with the six battles on the reverse is the Army version of this medal. The Navy version has one additional battle listed. The cornucopia, designer's signature and the shape of the attachment all are characteristic of an original medal.
