Default Chinese Maritime Customs

Gentlemen
I would like to share this rare badge, it is a pre 1950 Chinese Maritime Customs Badge, the construction looks British and after a little research I learnt the British helped control the Customs for the Chinese! So the badge is most likely used by a British person.
Kind regards Chay

Default Chinese Maritime Customs badge?

Hi

I see that these are fairly old posts, but should anyone want one of these badges, PM me for details and a photo. Badge is in perfect condition.

A couple of years back I had contact with a member who was keen but the badge eluded me until Covid had me sorting out stuff.

Cheers!

Hi

With a bit of trawling of the 'Net, I've worked out that this badge might date from around 1907 and can't be after 1949.

The things you learn!

Default Chinese Maritime Customs badge?

Hi

Following interested PMs from several members, I decided to post a photo of my badge.

I notice that the "point of difference", to use an overworked phrase from marketing, is that the other badge has a separate silver (?)centre.

All comments welcome!
