    Order of the Lion and the sun?

    1320 is 1901 in lunar hejira so it would be ok for muzaffar. I dont think the solar callender wad introduced until the pahlavi era. Paul

  13. Fakes to deceive collectors originated in the late 80s (my God 30 years ago seems like yesterday) when top end soviet started making worthwhile money. Prior to that they were made for theatrical or museum display purposes. Paul
  14. Sorry it is a joke it means it is a copy. Copy if written with cyrillic script is pronounced Soru. At work when we see a Russian piece which is a wrong un we say it looks like Soru's handywork. The Nevsky illustrated looks very much as if it is a theatrical copy not made with the intent to deceive. As usual my joke has back-fired. Paul
