    Greek War Cross

    Nice!! I have never seen this type before!
  2. just to add that former monitor Bodrog from the first picture still exists and there is a plan to be completely reconstruct at the very place from which he fired first shots in the First War World at Belgrade, Serbia.

    Serbian For Bravery medal, 1876

    But nevertheless is quite rare
  4. is there any possibility to know the serial number on that specific piece?
  5. It’s a bit strange as we have never seen this medal on any of king Alexander Obrenovic numerous portraits. This specific one must have been attributed to (at least ) members of royal house.
  6. they look brand new, unworn . Paja is quite right, as those epaulets should be attributed to the reign of King Milan instead to the reign of his son Alexander Obrenovic.
  7. Great find and I as well believe that's a original signature.
  8. Any chance to get explanation, why did ZIN actually manufactured type 1.1 (with wider screw nut) with such high serial numbers in the range 70k+? It will apply that they have started both from the beginning and as well as from 70k? I have one of those 1.1 but with such high SN...

    Great collection indeed. I am just puzzled why did they put dots after roman numbers?
  10. Dear Paja, I am quite positive that you can contribute a lot with your knowledge and wisdom!
  11. Wonderful story. Many thanks for sharing it with us. Just to add that the same regulations applied to Serbian army, as the canon crew in the case of abandoning their canon could face military court. Just one more detail. I cannot with certainty read years on the Karageorge GS. 1914-191?
  12. I think that we should start a new topic: Serbian bravery medals through history
  13. I really like France, as you can came across so nice findings related to Serbia. This is my latest acquisition, Royal Household medal, third class, from the period 1903-1914 (better known as third model), produced by G.A Scheid from Vienna. As you can see, it's almost in mint condition... What is interesting, there are on the ring few markings. Hallmark of the producer (GAS), two marks of the Assay Office (letter ,,A" in the square), and the third which is one large ------ (almost like numer 1 in horizontal position) without any meaning to me. Anyone who can explain me the meaning of that third mark? I would try to post picture with details.
  14. I was offered with that specific one, and I had to decline it, as it was obviously fake. I was told that was a cheaper version for those students who couldn't afford silver version... But, as it was a year ago, back than, it was different seller from Croatia...
  15. Just observe the difference between two classes...

    Mine Monodvor PS3 has 21gr. Once again many thanks for your effort.

    You are most probably guessing right.
  20. I think that I've found him. It should be general-major in reserve Milancic Miljevic for BiH, but there's no data about his other decorations...

    Order of the Iron Crown

    Thank you Christian for this prompt answer. I have found it on French EBay, and the price is now more than 150 EUR and still going up, very fast. I just don't know why somebody bids for this lousy piece if he can obviously suspect that it's a fake.
