  1. Good evening, Gentlemen. Can anyone explain. Information from some sources (eg Wikipedia): metal from a Soviet tank captured in Angola used to manufacture a limited number of the Southern Africa Medal. So, is metal from the tank really added only to the limited part of medals, in what numbers range ? Or all the medals contained metal of the tank ? And in fact it was really so (about limitation) ? Thanks.
  2. Good evening. Unfortunately I haven't recorded information sources (it was a few years ago), but there was also information that only the first part about 20 000 pieces was stamps with application/addition specifically of iron from the tank, but because of difficulties of stamping of such alloy subsequently only copper, nickel, etc. from this tank were added to alloy. It is also visible on structure and quality of medals. This question can probably be clarified by colleagues from South Africa, if they are here …
  3. Good evening. Can someone show the reverse of named Burma Star to Australians. The font / method of application has always been standard(what kind of ?) or may be different. Thanks.
  4. Yes, it's clear with the Indian, but I can not find an image of reverse for the Australians. What is offered is very doubtful for me. Thanks.
  5. Is the date of the version change known (documents)? According to some sources the silver gilded version in limited quantity was produced for high ranks of army and officials as far as it can be true (the awards shown above are made of gilded and silvered copper) ? Regards.
  6. Good Day. It is known that the Order for Bravery was in one class, but how to explain different versions? Both IKOM. When the changes were made, the reason ? Thanks.
  7. Well, I didn't received it yet. But I will check it on receipt.
  8. Good day, Gentelmen. Maybe someone knows what is this medal / jeton? And make a correct translation of the inscription. Sorry for the quality of the photo, only those. Thanks.
  9. One more thing. It is indicated that the medal was made of iron with black finish, but this one looks bronze. Maybe I did not understand something or it's fake ?

    Cross identification.

    Good Day. Thanks to all. Yes, GRA, You are right, many thanks.
  11. Good day, Gentlemen. Who know samething about this cross ? Of course, something related to radiotelegraphy, with a snake and a green background..., maybe someone already met it? ? Thanks. P.S. 35x35 mm, gilt silver or white metal.
  12. Good Day. IKOM, silver.
  13. Thanks for Your answer. But here is the granular surface under enamel - characteristic for the GDR/Prawema and the nut is also GDR type. On the IKOM's, the surface under the enamel is smooth and the nut is completely different. P.S. There are a few more 1 cl., one of which is similar to IKOM.
  14. Good Day, Gentlemen. What is Your opinion about the authentic of this subject ? It is positioned as 1 class. Of course this is the GDR, but I ask because a lot of gold-plated lower classes appeared on sale. Thanks.
  15. Good afternoon, Gentlemen. Maybe someone knows something about this cross ( x60mm, 46g, gilded Br or Cu, revers the same). A few months ago I saw the same in the internet, but I can not find it anymore. Thanks.
  16. But where to find this order ? Is it a rare, expensive ?
  17. Good Morning. Now it is known exactly that this is a Cross of 10-11 degree of Sweden/Norwegian Masons.
  18. For Kallarati Heroik. Good evening, Gentleman. Different manufacturers of medals for Вravery (answer):
  19. " Georg may think that the numbers are unit numbers not numbers given to individual soldiers..... " I understood that this is blocks of the personal numbers whithin each Militia Districts and assigned certain unit/regiment. I am wrong ?
  20. "The letter "C" refers to the M3, but there is no regiment 2205..." The same problem with SL 11898 ...
  21. Thank You very much ! All the best in this New Year! Regards.
  22. Good evening, Gentlemen. Sorry, maybe I'm confused in the definitions, but did not fully understand transcript SC 2205 J.B.R. CARON : "I have been told that S is for an NCO" (#1) – what means an NCO ? SC - the letter "S" was set as whole after WW2 or this is an addition for his code during WW2 ? The letter "C" refers to the M3, but there is no regiment 2205 ( "Militia District 3 - Prefix C - Eastern Ontario and South-Western Quebec. Hastings & Prince Edward Regiment 4001 - 9000 ...", but 2205 ?). Many thanks.
  23. It's quite possible, thanks. But may be more opinions ?
