  1. You're missed, my friend!  

  2. Those are some jaw-dropping bars you all! Wow. I can look at these all day. Thank you for sharing.
  3. The Austrian Red Cross medal is really something. Great bar!
  4. Thank you all. I wish I had paperwork! It was crazy just finding the medal. Maybe one day though. Here is the reverse.
  5. Thanks Megan. My collection of DDR medals is growing much larger than I ever imagined. Every time I turn around, there is another medal I'd never before seen.
  6. I just won this baby. There are tons of rare items on for inexpensive prices. I guess they ran out of collectors.
  7. Correct. Beautiful ribbon bars.
  8. This is great stuff. Thank you Egorka. Paul, can you please share that image? So there is a chance the man did not receive any lower level labor orders or medals?
  9. Beautiful and definitely silver. Not Bronze. Thanks for sharing.
  10. Would the Westwall have been considered to be a campaign medal?
  11. Wow. I bet that if they have not, someone here will be able to do so. I know that this would've been right up Rick L's alley....
  12. I know... an easy 10-12k set, but a beauty. I wonder what other lower level orders or medals he may have possessed? I know someone who claims to be able to research these civilian awards now. It would be interesting to see who this was. Definitely a top tier personality.
  13. Thanks for sharing these rarities with us. What type of uniforms did the Jordanians use at the time? British inspired?
  14. Did you buy this medal? Please let us know? From what I can see, it looks great to me. When you get an opportunity, can you please post the images asked for?
