  1. Hello Gavin, hello Tom I was looking to this thread only by today and I was getting more and more curious about what will come up next as you continued the discussion. First thing the order you bought is for sure not Mr. Puric's for more than one reason. First a accompanying calling card is a very good selling performer and often used by non 100% honest dealers. Of cours they will have the accompanying text not clearly state that the order and the card have belonged to the same person. So you will never have the slightes chance to treat them as liars. Second the Sorlini production started in the late 1930ies so it would be very uncommon that he was awarded one of those production items.And to be more cruel it looks that the order you have more like a Hugunin production rather than Sorlini, the quality of the making is too good for Sorlini, the box for certain is OK. Third (the most wondering) is the answer of the Embassy people, if the have a list to look after who received or not and what orders I would be the first one amongst many other people liking to have a look at that list. Why? because this list does not exist. There was only the official bureau of orders and decorations in Belgrade keeping track of thos informations and unfortunately all of those tracks and databases have been destroyed in a fire probably on the bombing of Belgrad during the WW II and since then all data has been lost. Except for some class I and II classes as they have been published also in newspapers or military bulletins and they have been stocked and archived in other places. You did a perfect research on orders and persons but unfortunately (and I am sorry for that) you will not manage to correctly tie those things togheter as they do not belong togheter. For more pictures on Serbian orders look at my website. If I could help any further please let me know or PM me. Best regards from Switzerland Milan
  2. Here is the same miniature from my own collection Best regards Milan
  3. Yes they did. I posted only my own pictures.
  4. Hi Linas sorry this was a small protection to discourage some people to have a look at my collection. You already got the correct info for entering, hope you did it already. @SasaYU Thx for helping out! hvala! regards Milan
  5. The complexity of the order makes it almost impossible to craftmanship a copy, there are newly made "copys" which are so cheap and poor looking that you could distinguish them as copys out of an airplane. Otherwise there are no fakes or copys around, the only issue is to find a perfect preserved piece which was not too much worn. regards Milan PS: I will look if i can find a picture of one of those copys (by the way the copys are a bit smaler in size than the originals
  6. Hello Linas your item looks good and as Emanuel said it is a Swiss made Huguenin piece of work of the Vth class of the white eagle without swords. If you like you can go and compare a little bit with the pictures on my own website. Any questions are always welcome. Enjoy collecting Serbian orders they are among the most beautiful you will see. Best regards from Switzerland Milan

    Problem With Pirate Website

    Hello Anatoly I have experienced same problem with differnt users and sellers on ebay and other vending sites which used direct links to my pictures. As soon as I have detected them I took the time to exchange the order pictures with all kinds of other "type" pictures which resulted in some of the vendors beeing baned from ebay and similar sites due to not conform picture material. (I have posted nude women .....). Since I have done this the number of "free" uses have been at zero with my site, I think it was more worth than writing a letter of complaint. Best regards and good luck Milan

    Serbia - St Sava's

    Hello and thanks for the flowers! There is a complete book in working progress on this subject it will contain hundreds of marvelous pictures (I had the oportunity to see them all). A small part of them is out of my collection and all the 3-4 "biggest" Serbia collections from around the world will be also present with pictures. The book was supposed to be published last year but some problems arouse and my last info was that this summer it should be OK. I am hoping and waiting ....... Best regards Milan
