  1. 2 Cuban Awards

    There are very few published sources on Nicaraguan awards. However, one light in the darkness is a book published in 2002 by Luis H. Flores called"Nicaragua: It's Coins, Paper Money, Medals, Tokens". The section on medals (which also covers military insignia) runs just over 100 pages and illustrates many of the awards from the Daniel Ortega period. This is the only place I've ever seen these Ortega-era awards. It's a very hard book to find, but might be available through numismatic book dealers.
  2. 2 Cuban Awards

    Nicaragua. Ministry of the Interior Distinguished Service Medal. Comes in three classes - gold, silver and bronze.
  3. Monaco badge

    OK, not exactly French, but close. This badge came to me identified as the badge of an ambassador of Monaco. I've seen a similar badge, but silver-gilt, also without a solid identification. Does anyone know what it actually is? It measures 61x44mm.
  4. Unknown award with UN connectuion?

    Many thanks, Frank. That clears it up.
  5. The text is not the problem. The problem is who issued it and why?
  6. Pakistan Princely States - Bahawalpur

    Jeremy Tenniswood Militaria often has Bahawalpur ribbons available on his web site. I haven't looked in a while, however.
  7. Thank you, Paja, for having a memory far better than mine.
  8. I cannot find this in my Greek sources. What is it?
  9. Thank you for the information.
  10. Unknown cross

    The reverse is blank. The marriage possibility is certainly viable. This came out a very large estate collection, so there's no way to go back through the previous collector.
  11. Thank you both for the input. It's been most helpful.
  12. It would certainly make sense that the decisions bringing about the flag change would also be reflected in the design of orders.
  13. This came to me described as the star of the Libyan Order of Good Workmanship. However, all the images I can find of this order show the center enameled areas to be in green, rather than red and black. The center inscription is appropriate and it's marked by Bomisa. Is this an earlier type? A trial piece? Something else entirely?
  14. Unknown revolver help, please

    Many thanks for the link. I'm not sure I ever would have found that and it makes my task so much easier. Regards, Jeff Floyd
  15. Unknown revolver help, please

    Many thanks for that. I'm now light years ahead of my complete ignorance.
