… Plus the fact that the seller (pseudonym KORSHUN on eBay) did not even bother answering me when I questioned him about all that !
Does anyone know him ? Should this guy be put on the buyers' black list ?
Hi, your new purchase looks very nice, and thanks for the kind comments, does your posted image just show the complete medal or just the ribbons, I can't seem to open the entire image?
Hi Gordon, thanks for the kinds words, in hand, they really do look as amazing as on the images, regards

And by the way, the use of "Statskalendern" and "Hofcalendern" is of great help when it´s difficult to read the names in the old Matrikel books.
Some years of Statskalendern is available at runeberg.org and I have a few earlier ones myself. But so far I only have the 1817, 1845 and 1868. Good thing that they arent so expensive.
