  1. Thanks. I was hoping it was in rough shape because it was early version.
  2. Hi Guys I have just acquired the following badge. Can anyone give me an idea of the age/ details etc., please. Most of the ones I can find are made by IKOM. Cheers Dave
  3. Cheers Gunner, I thought I had seen a gilt version previously.
  4. Hi Guys Any information you can provide on this one please?
  5. It is not for sale but this one looks to be more bronze/brass than silver and is quite heavy.
  6. No problem Nick, there is more than one variation of this medal, so they could both be authentic or alternatively both be fakes. We will probably never know for sure Lots of information discussing these, but unless you can get one with an authentic document from a trusted source it is a lottery.
  7. Maybe?, these are a nightmare to authenticate, lots of debate all over the internet. Here is the one I have settled for, before I attached a new ribbon, but no guarantee this is right either I am afraid.
  8. Missing the hammer & sickle on the star at the bottom on the obverse?
  9. I seem to remember purchasing a Polish medal from them some time ago. I don't remember having any problem with them.
  10. I am most dubious of No.2 The Philippine Independence medal as it has a Luzon ribbon attached to it and although it may not be too easily recognisable from the images the Rs in JR at the end of J J TUPAZ JR appear to be Ps. It is also the only version I have where both the obverse and reverse have makers markings. However it is still a very nice quality medal.
  11. 7-Philippine-Defense Medal 8-Philippine-Liberation Medal
  12. Here are some more Philippine medals and different versions(with reverse) of those already shown. I am afraid I cannot date or verify the authenticity of them but maybe someone else can? 1-Philippine-Gold Cross Medal 2-Philippine-Independence Medal 3-Jolo Campaign Medal 4-Military Commendation Medal 5-Military Merit Medal 5(a)-Philippine-Military Merit Medal 6-Philippine-Wounded Personnel Medal
  13. Many of the Philippine medals were manufactured by Jose J Tupaz Jr., but here is a different version of the Resistance 1941-1945 medal by C Zamora. If you look closely on the obverse of the medal it has CZ where the previous one shown in this thread has JT (at the bottom of the sword in between the laurel wreath). I have not seen this version before and wondered if anyone else is familiar with it and could possibly provide any further information with regards to date etc?
  14. Peter, I think he must have just simply trained in Debert in the workshop and as it appears he was born in the UK it is highly unlikely he would have earned any of the medals I received with the diaries (as the War medal is silver). It's a shame, I was hoping for something exciting to come to light. Maybe next time.
  15. Many thanks Tony, the 1943 Xmas home address written in the diary is Manor Cottage, Broadway, Totland Bay, IoW so the medals do appear to be a total red herring.
