  1. Also I will renew the topic.2 Lifesaving Medals.
  2. Meritorious Service Medal

    One good man read me the text in the case-Jaroslav Hanzal. Jaroslav Hanzal was an expert who was working in the Car factory Škoda Mlada Boleslav a was in North Korea and he was awarded the order 44070 for disrtibution of the cars to this country. What a pity but I do not the certificate to this order. Also I did not have the certificate to the order 3812.One doctor-surgeon was awarded with the order 3812,he took part in the Korean War in the early 50th.But the order 3812 was sold last year.
  3. Thanks for your interest to this topic..Yes,they vary.I had many 30th a 40th that were awarded to foreign military persons-e.g. Slovak generals,they had in the left side down Участнику войны-To the participant to war but had the signature of Kulikov or Ustinov.The name was typed,not written.Compare the simple 60th Anniversary army.This is for the Ministry of National Defence.A this is for the Soviet soldier. I had some of the certificates 30th and 40th put into Russian forums.If I find I will add here. I have found.The certificate for General Pivoluska.The medal is without signature,but look at the certificate-the name is typed,a the signature of Kulikov-Marshal of the USSR. This is certificate for military foreign persons. But you can find some more information here-Мондвор.народ.ру

    Semper Paratus, many thanks for your information. I add the next medal Ricordo.Of course, it is not a Valour Medal,but it is a Merit Medal.I like it,I think ,it is quite nice.

    Weight of the last order is 40,6gr. If somebody has an interest to be a new owner of this order ,number 44070,we can agree and he can send a message.
  6. Meritorious Service Medal

    2. 3rd Grade ,number 3812.This order I sold about one year ago. 3.3rd Grade ,number 44070.I would like somebody to read the text in the case.
  7. Meritorious Service Medal

    The reverse of the medal. Simply,I do not want to stay North Korean Meritorious Service Medal alone in the topic so I decided to add some pictures of the next awards of this country.I do not have many of them,but I think, it will be interesting to have a look at them. 1.1st Grade of the Order of the State Flag Etue 30x22cm Weight-star 50gr Weight -chain 80gr Total weight 2kg
  8. I have decided to add next ones.30 years had been already changed .The name in the booklet:Lieutenant-Colonel Martin Smutný.
  9. 2 Cuban Awards

    Surely it is not pure Cuban ribbon bar,but there are 2 Cuban awards among them.Having time you can determine them.
  10. Cigarette Cases

    Thanks,for your contribution to the topic. Icebreaker?Probably,yes.It is not difficult to find the information in Wikipedia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georgiy_Sedov_(icebreaker) Saphire?Perhaps,yes.I am not an expert. I do not collect ,but I have about 5 of them with the dedication to Czechoslovak officers.This is only one with the Soviet themes. If your cases are Soviet ones ,please, add some photos.
  11. Probably this item is connected with the division.I think it could belong to some navy officer,but also maybe it could not. The 20th or the 30th years of the XXth century? Silver,there are marks ,weight 160gr,dimension 10x8cm. I am sure many collectors in the GMIC have interesting cases to show.
  12. It is interesting ,but I went through the division and I have not found the topic concerning of the collecting of the medals of Soviet Military Academies.I do not have many of them-only 2. Despite of the fact I have started the new topic because I believe collectors here will add their interesting pieces from their collections. 1.1957-gold purity 333 2.with the certificate gold purity 585
  13. The certificate with the medal.Photo is from internet,that helps me sometimes and saves me from taking the pictures.
  14. Czechoslovak Commemorative Medals

    Commemorative Medal of Dukla Operation-Battle It was instituted by the govermental decision from 26.6.1959 as a commemorative medal to 15th anniversary of the Dukla Battle for merit in liberation of Czechoslovakia and consolidation of Czechoslovak-Soviet friendship. All members who took part in the battle from 8.9.to 28.11.1944 were bestowed with the medal. The medal is made from bronze ,diameter 35 mm.In the obverse we can see the profiles of Czechoslovak and Soviet soldiers and the title Honour and glory to the heroes of Dukla-Česť a sláva dukelským hrdinum.In the reverse the figures of these soldiers hand in hand and the title With the Soviet Union-forever. I do not know the exact number of the bestowed medals,but I think it is quite big.This nice medal is not expensive. The certificate and the booklet of the medal. The certificate 20x28cm. The booklet 13,5cmx9,5cm. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_the_Dukla_Pass
  15. The photos are not mine,also the certificate with the cross,but I think there is a good place for them in this topic.Notice ,number 142 in 1946.It is helpful with the number of bestowed awards.
