  1. Hi 922F, Very true, but it seems to be the same type of ribbon as the Belgium military cross, usually if the ribbon for mounting is not available, the nearest collor ribbon is used.
  2. Hi Guy, I think this is a Luxembourg order of merit, as this is a very common combination with the ECMM medal. The Luxembourg government awarded the Belgium and Dutch members filling places in the ECMM mission during the Luxembourg precidency of Europe(because Luxembourg did not have enough people) with this merit order. Regards Sampo
  3. Hello Guy, I think the first one is the Ethiopian order of the star, and the second one is the order of the Homayoon of Iran. This was most likely a military person who served at the royal house of Belgium. Sampo
  4. Hello Guy, I think the bottom ribbon is from the European Comunity monitor mission, as is the ribbon just above it. They are both the same. The top one seems to be mounted for wear, the bottom one is the original as issued in the box. (the same as I got in 1997) Kind regards Sampo
  5. Greek dealers

    Hi Jan, Maybe this one has something for you, depending on what you are looking for: http://eshop.sillektiki.com/Index.php?Language=en Kind regards Sampo
  6. Hi Kris, Looks like a Hungarian 1918-1944 order of merit to me. The size and loop is not visible, but that will determine the grade. Kind regards Sampo
  7. Hi Kris, It is depending on if it is a military or civilian version, and the type of case(era). If I go by the most common ones: Civil: 400-700USD (Blue Case) Military: 500-900USD (Blue case) If in Orange case: Civil: 450-750USD Military: 600-1000USD These are prices for the most common ones, if can change if you have one made in Portugal or a gold one(14K) Regards Sampo
  8. Thanks Guys, But I was wondering why is it written in Japanese as this is a Korean medal case? Sampo
  9. Hello, I have found an strange medal case. Can anyone please translate the Japanese text, and identify for what medal it is for? Much appreciated! Sampo
  10. ROK Jacket (on eBay) - any thoughts?

    Hi Everyone, I will try to identify the ribbopn rack on this jacket: ROW1 European-African-Middle East campaign medal(USA) Army of occupation medal(USA) American defense medal(USA) ROW2 Taeguk order of military service (ROK) Eulji order of military service with silver star (ROK) Chungmu order of military service (pre 1951 issue)(ROK) ROW3 Wharang order of military service (pre 1951 issue)(ROK) Merit medal for defense (ROK) Wharang order of military service(pre 1951 issue)(ROK) ROW4 Merit medal for defense (ROK) Guerilla warfare service medal with munkunghwa leaf for second issue (ROK) Medal for sevee wounds with 3 munkunghwa leafs for multiple issue (ROK) ROW5 6.25 incident medal(Korean war medal)(ROK) Red cross medal(ROK) United Nations Korean war medal(UN) It seems a bit overdone for a NCO, and in my opinion it is nearly impossible.

  11. Hi Peter, I have checked out that list, but it is far from complete. I think the only foreign order allowed to wear cannot be the French Legion D'Honneur. I guess most foreign royal orders should be in there. I hope ther is someone ou there who can help me with the commonwealth accepting and wearing policy. I was not aware of this site at all, and it does come in handy for other questions, thanks Peter. Cheers
  12. Hi Paul, Yes, no problem here a picture of the ribbons of Major-General H. Robertson of the Australian army. Cheers Cyril PS: The Korean military merit 1st class is on the right in the bottom row.

  15. Unknown Chinese warlord medal

    Hi Nick, I do was aware of the very Nice Chinese medals you have shown. The reason I had some doubts was a lot in an auction a while ago. Maybe this will add something to the story. Cheers Cyril
