  1. Spomenica Domovinskog rata If it is possible some more infos-number of awards,price...etc.Many thanks for reply.
  2. Of course ,it is not a Soviet award.First,Soviet awards are of good quality,second they use of cyrillica and the proletarian sings:a red star,hammer,sickle Your bagde looks like a bijouterie or a costume jewellery. Probably it could be a badge of some Orthodox Society of Russian Church?I wrote the title Dei Gratia Leonardus I Princips into Wikipedia but I did not get any answer.
  3. It is interesting to see the converse of his all awards after war.Probably,he took part the Parade of Victory in 1945 in Red Square.
  4. I decided to create a new topic,where I would like to introduce the awards of the 2nd Resistance,that means orders and medals for merit in fighting against fascism.I realize it will be a long work-lots of taking pictures,writing commentaries... Please,be patient.Czechoslovak awards are interesting not the only with nice design,but also the number of awards was extremly low.It is my point of view,and you need not to agree with it.All items in the topic will be from my collection.I hope you will find it interestnng to have a look at the topic. 1.Czechoslovak Medal of Janošík It weas institued 14.6.1946 as an award for the partisanes mostly in Protektorat Bohemia and Moravia.For partisanes in Slovakia was the Order of the Slovak National Uprising.But it does not mean,no Slovak citizens got this medal.The number of award is not high,about 450.The Medal of Janošík is made from bronze,diameter 35mm.In the obverse we can see the figure of Slovak national hero,a robber from 18 th century,that took rich and gave to poor.The titlle-Better not to be,than to be a slave.In the reverse -For Bravery in the Partisane Battles of Czecs and Slovaks.In the topic are pictures of the medal with a certificate. The period to honouring with the medal was probably to 1949.
  5. My good Ukrainian friend allowed me to put the Order for Liberty of 1st Grade bestowed on Carpatian Ukrainian Corporal in Reserve Jan Ivan Kočerhan.The order was bestowed in memoriam.It is not easy to find the certificate of this order to the collection.Two unusual things say about its rarity-the order was bestowed on the foreigner a with so low rank.It says about a heroic act.

  7. In my collectors practice I had nearly all of these bagdes,those came into being in 1942 to reward the soldiers of all qualifications in Red Army.These badges existed till 1957.I went through the division and I found out there is no topic about these badges.I decided to look for the photos of the badges I sold e.g. lately or last year and to create the topic. 1.Excellent Fireman 2.Excellent Baker 3.Excellent Tankist 4.Excellent Buzzer 5.Excellent Worker in Air Forces 6.Excellent Worker in Health Service At present time I do not have more pictures,but I hope some collectors of the forum will add their photos of the badges.

    Badges ot Excellent Soldiers

    No,they are not.I sold them immediately in the Russian forum-faleristika.info.Do you collect them?See the topic,I hope in the future to sell some again.
  9. Please,identify this badge.6x4cm Many thanks for your help.
  10. It has been raining outside for long time,and I am very bored.So doing nothing I decided to create a new topic-Badges of Best Workers.These badges are very popular among the collectors in Slovakia and in the Czech Republic.The bagdes for the shock workers-najlepší-the best,zaslúžilý-deserved,vzorný-exemplary came into being in the 30years of the 20 century,but the explosion of awarding by them we can see mostly in the 50th.Not everybody could get the state award,so some Ministeries or the branches of industries decided to create their own awards.These awards-badges were given to the best workers mostly in silver,numberred,with certificates,so when the bagdes are appear for sale,mostly at aukro.cz ,they are sold for a big money.I am sure I had a very big collection of the badges,but reducing my collection I decided to leave only a few.I would like to introduce the badges I left. Most of all I like the best workers of some kinds of transport.The badges are in red etuis 7,5cmx7,5cm.Dimension of the badge is 3,5cmx5cm. 1,The best Worker of the Railway Transpot.Sorry,I can show only the obverse of the bagde 2.The best worker of the Bus ,Truck Carrying.I have also the certifificate,40x30cm. 3.The best worker of the Ship ,Boat carrying
  11. Exemplary Worker of Cinema Production
  12. I am sure it could be an interesting topic.Really I do not have many Slovak awards from this period in my collection,but many of them have gone through my fingers,and they will go through too.There are not many collectors of the awards of this period.There are many reasons.If somebody is interested why I will explain.First I will show some I have got the snaps I left.Later I will have to do some more pictures.Have a good fun having a look at them. 1.The Bagde Pilot -Cosmonaut of the Slovak Republic.The badge was created because of opportunity of the flight of the first Slovak cosmonaut Ivan Bella in 2000.Obverse-the spaceship around the globe,in the middle with the territory of the Slovak Republic.Around the bagde is written-The Pilot-Cosmonaut of the Slovak Republic.Material is silver,marked at the reverse.Screwback.In nice etue,with the certificate inside.50 badges were awarded,e.g.n. 1-Ivan Bella,n.2-reserve cosmonaut -Fuljer,,n.3-the President of the country...etc.The slovak language took the using of russian word,not american one-astronaut.so the Cosmonaut,not Astronaut. Certificate-material-silver diameter 45mm weight 34 gr authors-Ivan & Igor Chyla Made in Mint Kremnica I have got the badge with number 28 in my collection.I had 3 of them ,but they had been sold.
  13. The most important thing you like this Copy.What material is made it from?
  14. Sorry,Craig,but I do not have any information about the company that produces the ribbons to this medal.Personally ,i do not have this medal in property,but it is not difficult to buy it in veterans.Lenght of the ribbon?8-9cm ,I do not know.I do not collect these medals. I do not know if it is possible to buy the medal abroad,but in Slovakia it si possible.If you need the medal in the future I can ask the dealers in the Collectors Meeting ,27.10.Sooner,not.
  15. Craig,do you mean this award?It is not easy to get the ribbon,I do not work the material.But the medal is not expensive,it is not difficult to buy it.30-40euro?
  16. If it does not matter I will put the Star from my collection to your topic.
  17. The award is original,but I think something was done with ring on the ray of the star.Was it in repair?Wait for a nicer piece.It is my opinion. The seller has a good material,but personally I do not have any experience with the dealer.

    Order of Lenin #269466

    Good price for the order with the order booklet.Nice condition ,too.I would not hesitate if you need it.
  19. Also I can be mistaken 137339 - Ноябрь 5, 1990 with number 137339 was awarded in 1990. I bought mine 136807 probably in 1995? Russian collectors write they have not met pieces with numers over 140xxx? https://forum.faleristika.info/viewtopic.php?f=526&p=6675978#p6675978 Not having the Soviet orders with the order booklet we can only guess.
  20. Needing some more opinions?Here you are-this order is original but not an awarded piece.
  21. The Slovak Republic in 1941 took part together with Nacist Germany in campaign against the USSR.There were not many awards for simple soldiers,so that is why they made some for themselves.Wellknown and popular among them became the badges of Fast Divisions-odznaky Rýchlej divízie.There were many versions of them. 1.type made from bearings metal layed with some chrome.The dimensions of the badge-4x5cm.Weight about 50gr.There were two kinds of them-full and perforated 2.type Light version from aluminium,data 1941-42-43 I would to add the photo of a soldier of Slovak Army with a badge on the pocket and a ceritificate Badges were worn on the leather hanger.Notice the group of awards,the badge of the Fast Divison is down left. Down right is the badge of the Fast Division-Crimea-Krim. At present time I cannot to show the badge for officers made from zinc that was worn on clip.I sold it my friend,but in the future I will ask for it and take the pictures.
  22. The next badge of Rapid Division with holes.Holes were used to sew the badge on the uniform.
