  1. G'day gents, Thinking of buying this order, does it look authentic? Nothing about it looks wrong to me but just wanted to make sure as to avoid being stung. Thanks,
  2. Group of 4 PLA medals

    Hello again gents, i apologise again for this but Communist Chinese medals are wracked with fakes and fantasies so I just wanna check the authenticity of these medals. Im thinking of buying these 3 medals for the liberation of Northern China and this 1950 south central front badge. -I am 99% sure that 2 of the medals for the liberation of Northern China (the one in the middle of the 3 and the one on the left) are fakes as the one in the middle is made of aluminium and has red paint and the one on the left has red paint rather than red enamel on the flag as well with weak details (fake caste?) and the suspension is wrong. -The south central front badge looks good to me as it has the silvery nickel finish with '104' written behind the pin which was marked on more nickel finished badges rather than chocolate-bronze finished ones which had '105'. -The medal for liberation of china on the right hand side looks good to me-red enamels, brass, original ribbon mount. If you could tell me what you think that would be awesome Thanks, Damo
  3. G'day gents, I'm thinking of buying this excellent Tankist badge which claims to have been dug up and certainly looks like it. Thoughts? Real or Fake? Thanks,
  4. He was an ebay ukrainian who was being uncooperative, argumentative at first and offered me a partial refund of LESS THAN HALF of what i paid him but then oddly he snapped out of it and gave me full refund and allowed me to keep the item then next day he messaged me and said "you must leave feedback" but the day after that says "All is good no problem". By the looks of things i think there are 2 people running the same store Because location is not ukraine but item came from ukraine and im seeing this weird bipolar activity unfolding infront of me
  5. When i recieved the item i realised the post was made of brass but the badge was made of bronze and the solder was some strange silvery thing and there was some clear glue as well-did not see this as photos was not clear. Anyways, good news is i got a full refund and i get to keep the item
  6. Gday gents, I am trying to collect communist Chinese medals and I've been looking for one of these for a while now and have finally encountered one, ribbon has clearly been replaced but not sure about the medal itself though which looks to be in really good condition compared to most other examples I've seen so if somebody could tell me if this medal is real that would be great Thanks, Damien
  7. Gday gents, I am trying to collect communist Chinese medals and these 2 medals (1953 korea peace badge, civil war medal for liberation of northern china) look good to me but i am not an experienced collector so if somebody could tell me if these are real that would be great Thanks,
  8. Gday gents, here i have the bottom of a medal document which is almost unreadable, the only words i can make out are: komandira, VV NKVD and Podpolkovnik If anyone can help me decipher the whole thing such as who signed it, what division, etc that would be amazing. Thanks, Damo
  9. Awarded to Bekmen Amankuyovich? Stamov, a Kazakh -Unfortunately document for Order Patriotic war is missing however ageing signs are similar to Moscow and Stalingrad medal and reputable dealer said it belonged to same man. -Unfortunately the first name has rubbed off the Stalingrad document but match Moscow document as it says NKVD in Stalingrad document (1945) and MVD in Moscow document (1946). -Order has seen enamel repair on left arm and hammer and sickle are slightly deformed, nonetheless a nice low serial wartime piece (No.239,395). -I have tried to research awards through podvig.naroda and pamyat.naroda but failed, probably because he served in NKVD. Enjoy,
  10. Thanks for the valuable Insight gents! Absolutely Bill ill post post photos of the whole group Also if anyone can shed more information on this brigade's involvement in the defence of Stalingrad and Moscow that would be amazing
  11. Gday Gents, Here i have what looks to be a PRC badge of some sort which i picked up at a flea market in Beijing. -Made of BRASS which shows clear signs of oxidation and ageing in recessed areas -Would be great if anyone could identify this for me and translate the inscription on the back -Would also be great if anyone could value this in US dollars for me Thanks,
