  1. Let's keep it alive, shall we? Here's all of my grandpa's awards. He was a Lt.Colonel of the Yugoslav People's Army, technical branch of service. Turned 80 this spring! First photo: Order of the Yugoslav People's Army 2nd and 3rd class Second photo: Order for Military Merits 2nd and 3rd class 3rd photo: Commemorative medals for 30 Years of the Yugoslav People's Army, 30 Years of Victory over Fascism and 40 Years of the Yugoslav People's Army
  2. Very nice collection Alex! It's nice to see the difference between old and new officer's cross.
  3. Amazing! Do you have any information about the man?
  4. This is very interesting, we rarely see awards from this period. Thank you for posting!
  5. Thank you very much for the information Aahauge! The seller is asking around 15$ so it's a great deal.
  6. Didn't know that, thank you for the additional information!
  7. I think it is a genuine piece but is there any way to know if it was awarded? I've read that there are a lot of unawarded pieces but I think it's not the case with this one. It is currently for sale at a local pawn shop. I'm guessing it could have been awarded to one of the Yugoslav Partisans since I'm from that area. Any help will be appreciated!
  8. Drugo, thank you so much for sharing this with the community!
  9. No problem Dave! Unfortunately, these badges are very common and you really can't say when they were made. The only possible information you get is from the screwplate which tells you who made it.
  10. It's a Yugoslav People's Army border troops badge made by Aurea Celje. Pretty common but in a rough shape. It's hard to tell anything more.
