    Lanyard

    Regarding Royal Romanian laynards, the blue fourragere with red stripes is for the Order of the Star and the red fourragere with blue stripes (Actually Rasberry red or purple red in color) is for the Order of Michael the Brave. The Auction is incorrect in matching up Brevets certificates to the laynards.

    Imperial Russian ribbon bar

    The overlay style of the ribbons and the mounting harware used is not of the period for Imperial Russian ribbon bars. This style has has the Austrian look to it. I would fold back the ribbons and check the metal mounting device and see if it is new. Also check the end of the spoke and see if it has been freshly cut. You would see shinny new metal at the end of the pin. Bicycle spokes are commonly used in medal and ribbon bars by dealers from Austria, Romania, Russia to name a few places that are recently made and put together for resale to collectors. The dealers from there would assemble original ribbons and or medals and make an attractive bar reselling it for 2-3 times the value. The givaway is always crude stiching ( Hand sewn using a larger size mil thickness thread of todays standards) , discrepencies on how the medal order are mounted (Dealers usually make a lot of mistakes by mounting in the wrong order due to lack of knowledge), large pins from bicycle spokes and new metal backing hardware being used. Look at each ribbon and medal bar closely to determine if it is of the period.

    Imperial Russian ribbon bar

    I would think later, much later like 1990's-2000's. I question the thick "bicycle spoke" pin in new condition used for a mounting device. My guess, it was made for collectors.

    1918 Railway Badge

    I beleive the badge you have is from the Baltic States area due to the construction of the badge. Thin silver stamped. The enamel color blue is often found in Lithuanian badges. I would start there in your research. The top row of letters "3.X.D." stands for "3rd Railrod Detachment". The bottom row letters "C.K." identify the Rail line. My geuss is "Samositia - Kaunus". Samositia is Central Lithuania and Kaunus was the established capitol of Lithuania in 1918. Bermont-Avalov liberated much of this area from the Bolshaviks in 1918. This is an educated guess, but I would start here do to how the badge is constructed, color, date, and letters on it. Quick note : Some Insignia found in 1918 were made from melted down coins, thus the silver and gold availability. Probably reserved for officers.
  5. Help ! Can someone identify this WW2 Submarine badge ? It is stamped with the letters "AMAM". It also has the 800 silver stamp and mfg stamp looks like AHI8 ????
