  1. WWI Showdown

    This past winter. He's a pretty good friend. We made a trade that I told him was way too much in my favor. He told me he wanted me to have this framed painting so there you are. He is pretty famous and a number of people collect him so it's not like he has any trouble placing his paintings. This one has a prominent place in our home. So does the Guadalcanal painting. He has done a LOT of Civil War and Old West paintings. He's been featured on the cover of Old West and Civil War magazines several times. Don has a cabinet of prints that he no longer bothers with. Three are hanging in our home. I have many of them on a thumb drive. Maybe I should share them here, too. They are also for sale way too cheap because he just got bored with prints. I appreciate the chance to share his art here.

  8. Opinions on China medal?

    <<if a Russian buyer thinks he has paid too much for an item it also mysteriously becomes fake>> I wish that hadn't happened to me. But it did.
  9. 50 Years Sevastopol Defense 1855-1905 Medal

    It has been 6-1/2 years without a response to my question: Can anyone tell with any certainty whether or not this (posts 10 and 11) is an authentic example? Help a brother out here. Chuck
  10. Erors? You made erors? Give me substance over style every time. Well done.
  11. Thank you for this excellent topic. Chuck
  12. $250 retail seems about right to me.
  13. Aleksei Nikolaevich Inauri - KGB Chief

    Oops. Photo won't post. I suspect operator error. Wiki link still works, though.
  14. This is Aleksander Nikolaevich Inauri, 1908 - 1993. WWII tank commander, HSU and eventual Soviet Colonel General and head of the Georgian KGB. This is his complete set of Supreme Soviet IDs and pins, from 1954 - 1984. After his death some unscrupulous quick-profit men bought his awards from someone in the family with access but perhaps not permission. They pretty much trashed everything else as junk. I bought everything else I could find in Tbilisi over the course of several years. That included these pins and IDS. I have a lot of his other stuff. Enjoy!
