Here's a story from Korea about a rare North Korean medal called the "Second-Degree Friendship Medal". -Editor
A medal that was apparently awarded by Kim Il-sung, the first Supreme Leader of North Korea and grandfather of current leader Kim Jong-un,
was found on a Mexican e-commerce website, Vivauncios. According to Vivauncios, Miguel Alba, a former professor at a university in Puebla, posted the
medal with an asking price of 76,995 pesos (4,153 USD) on May 13. He had already posted the medal on another e-commerce website, Segundamano, on May
9. Alba, however, later removed both posts, presumably due to concern over North Korean complaints.
