  1. "Former government," meaning the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, verses what it was after unification, The Socialist Republic of Vietnam.

  2. I saw plenty of those when I was there in 70 and 71. My military occupation of skill or MOS was 05K teletype intercept operator

  3. That looks so beautiful now. The blue tinge on the metal against the bright shine of the medal looks absolutely perfect. Congratulations on getting it spot on.

  4. Hey dude! Not sure if you can see this comment, but I have fairly rusted old hunting knife that my grandfather's father (can be my father's father.. forgot which.) I wonder, can I send it to you to restore it?

  5. Esse tipo de item não deveria ser restaurado. A história por trás da sujeira e ferrugem vale mais que qualquer brilho.

  6. My father brought Gun oil. I used to put it in bicycle chain and sewing machine. It was never used in guns. After some time father asked about oil he got a shining empty bottle only😂😂😂

  7. Watching your restoration videos is like smoking crack. One hit & you're addicted! 😉 I say you're more than an object restorer. You're an artist!

  8. I have to disappoint you, gentleman. This is not a Vietnamese gun oil bottle. This is a Soviet Army gun oil bottle from assault rifle AK-47, SKS carabine, Mosin's rifle or machine – gun PPSh.
    There were using two kinds of gun oil bottle: one-head and two-heads bottles for different kinds of gun oil.

  9. I like that you nickel plated it but the polished aluminum look is cool too. One tip though make sure that rubber doesn't dry out. I have these for my guns.
