  1. Correct. Beautiful ribbon bars.
  2. 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?
  3. Beautiful and definitely silver. Not Bronze. Thanks for sharing.
  4. Would the Westwall have been considered to be a campaign medal?
  5. 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....
  6. 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.
  7. Thanks for sharing these rarities with us. What type of uniforms did the Jordanians use at the time? British inspired?
  8. 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?
  9. Now that is a group. So, if I am reading things, the CSM, ORS(one of them), the the ORB are long service awards?
  10. What an awesome set. I hate to think of the price tag associated with it. Congrats.
  11. I took some time for myself and took these images. (The following information provided by Samer Mahroos) First photo- this is Sameer Al-Shaikhly the Minister of interior affairs until 1991 and the before that was the from the early 80s after Khairallah Tulfah's death he was the Mayor of Baghdad.He was forced to resign because of his opinion about the invasion of Kuwait, now lives in Amman, Jordan. Second Photo- from the right, Staff Lt. General Pilot Muzahim Sa'ib Al-Hassan, last commander of the Iraqi Air defence, in the middle, Staff General Ibraheem Abdulsattar Al-Tikriti , the last head of Staff the third from the right is not visible Written on the back: left "make mercy the crown of justice and determination instead of hesitation and slowing down instead of haste and wisdom instead of recklessness and the mind to substitute foolishness" the rest is unreadable right : "Oh God open our hearts and ears and enlighten our path and make us discern the saying of the others whither it's true or false, and let what's in their heart to be back at them" Third Photo set(next two): Mr. Izzet Ibraheem (Al-Douri), one meeting with the Brazilian President. The inscription on the reverse indicate that this image was presented to the Iraqi President (Saddam). Fourth Photo Set(next two): Saddam's Half Brother and Watban Altikriti Fifth Photo set(final three): Pending Information. Very senior Air Force officers.
  12. Beyond tragic, but at least it is not completely destroyed. I have one such bar, but thank God the ribbons are beautifully intact.
  13. Thank you! It is a beautiful item. Yes, the prices do not show up for some reason.
  14. What is the price?
