  1. If anyone sees a Brazilian Victory medal for $1500 you should buy it immediately (or tell me where you saw it and I will buy it). That would be a bargain price as far as I am concerned. Over here in Europe you would be lucky to find one anywhere for the less than the equivalent of $2500 best wishes Rob
  2. Wow, Lambert, thank you for this amazing research!! I had no idea I had the diploma of a man who later became an admiral. Thank you so much for sharing this news. I am guessing then that the medal probably does not belong to the diploma, or it means that someone took apart his medal group. Rob
  3. I also have an Italian Victory medal with diploma, mine is the Laslo type 1 medal. How rare is it to find one of these Italian diplomas? Rob
  4. I think it's the lighting, the medals in real-life are more or less the same tone as far as I can see
  5. Hi everyone, I am new to the forum and thought I would share a picture of my Cuba victory medal which is contained in this group on a medal bar. I also have the enamel ribbon bar. The victory medal is a Laslo official type but I would be grateful if anyone can let me know what the other medals are. thanks in advance Rob
  6. Apologies to anyone wanting to see this but I was on business. Here are what I think is a Laslo official type 2 plus the diploma with which I bought it. I have no proof that these two items officially go together! best wishes Rob
  7. Hi all, I am new to the forum but have been collecting these WWI US state, county and town victory medals for a number of years. In his book, Louis Small lists the following known State victory medals, with an estimate of the numbers issued: New York 427,871 Missouri 140,247 New Jersey 130,024 North Carolina 105,436 Maryland 64,424 (actual number) Connecticut 56,881 Oregon 32,276 New Hampshire 18,255 District of Columbia 18,016 Delaware 9,187 Wyoming 8,009 I have them all if anyone needs photos - it took me some time and a bit of money to get Delaware and Wyoming. best wishes Rob
  8. Hello all, I am new to the site and have been reading this interesting thread about the Brazilian Victory medal. More than 10 years ago I bought a type 2 from a dealer in London and it came with a Diploma. I can share a picture of the medal and diploma if anyone is interested. My questions are, how rare is it to find a Brazilin victory medal still with its diploma and how much does the diploma add to the value of the medal? best wishes Rob
