    Belgian order of Leopold ll

    hello, +1; do not degrade them to toys! Only if your children are used to get expensive toys... It would also have been nice to get the pic the right side up... They are all WWI related medals. It is quiet a job to name them all, but the second and last one of the top row (if the pic was not up side down!) are interesting medals. And the 3th of the lowest row (défence de Liége) (again with the pic right side up!) The 3 th top row ( old soldiers association medal probably nco...)is a good one too. All others are in a 10 to 15 euro range value (except the palms! They go for 5 euro or even less...)
  8. You could check results of auction's selling identical items, it would give you a idea.
  9. Very nice helmet! But I can't tell right from wrong...
  10. Indeed! Well done. I thought it was north-African or something....

    Congo chief medal

    These medals have always been on my wanted list, but didn't want to pay the high end prices some people ask for them... I was sure to find one, one day om my daily path of house clearing, and flea market visits. It took some time, but it was worth waiting for this one. I managed to find the youngest among those medals, but also the rarest one. "Chefferie" medals with the mention "chefferie" or "sous chefferie were meant to be given to chef's of over 6.000 villages , city's or tribes, from the 1920's until 1958. The one I got, mentions "secteur indigéne" and were ment for bigger regions/concentrations and were in number just over 500. 3 types, of the "secteur" medal, have been made over a shorter period of time (1930's to 1958), the one I am showing was made from 1949 on. The measurement (7 cm), the lack of adornment and the spelling shows this. It is know that Belgian officials complaint many times about the lack of "secteur" medals, during there time in the colony, so apparently these medals were all ready scarce at that time...:-)and the spelling shows this.
