  1. Help needed - japan badge

    Thank you for your fast help.
  2. Help needed - japan badge

    Hello Gents, I need some help about this Japanese badge/medal. What can it be? The ribbon looks like the ribbon of the Order of The Rising Sun, but the badge is different. Is it an association badge/medal or something else? Thank you for your help. Regards, Balazs
  3. Hello Jannis, IMO the multiple award bar and the ribbon looks like a modern copy. These ribboons used to be late 20st century copies. The medal is a very nice original bravery medal. Regards, Balazs
  4. Legion of Honor Monarchy of July question

    Bison, Thank you for your great help. I have found an interesting book, which is available online, maybe it will useful to someone:" Histoire générale des ordres de chevalerie, civils et militaires, existant en Europe ; Empire français ; Légion d'honneur" from 1811, by Nicolas Viton de Saint Allais https://archive.org/details/bub_gb_L04MAQAAMAAJ Regards, Balazs

    Of course:-). Unfortunately not the best photos. I have posted it in a topic on medals.extra.hu, but the forum doesn't work now, so I can't be able the insert the link now.
  8. Gold Merit Cross with Crown

    It looks like as a funeral piece, I have a FJO knight's cross which manufacture is similar to it.
  9. Thanks Bill for the information. I thought that the colour of the lining is helpful for dating a tunic. The red silk lining is a very interesting info. Balazs
  10. Hi Bill, Thanks for your help. It is a great info, I am not worried about the button in the future. As I see, the inside is grey on the later tunics probably from the 60s, before it was blue? Could it be another crucial point on dating a tunic? Balazs
  11. Hi Bill, Thanks for your help and fo the links! I thought I have to be aware with the bottom button, because it can be easily change to a standard button. What do you think it frequent? Yes, it has the belt, it is hanging from the back side. I am before the purchase now but I would like to be sure that it is an early post war uniform. Thanks, Balazs
  12. The belt is sewn on, fixed to the back of the tunic, the tunic has Kings Crowns buttons, the inside is made of blue silk. The inside of the trousers is white.
  13. What do you think, is it possible that this RAF uniform is from the early post WW2 era (1950s) or a later manufacture? Thanks for help. Regards, Balazs
  14. Thanks! I hope it too. What do you think is it possible that the MID is equivalent to the V-device on various US awards?
  15. Thanks for your help! I thought the CB-CBE pair is possible for the top row because both ribbon has the same width. The 2 MID's and The Africa Star with the 8th Army attachment could help to find the original owner, but my search wasn't successful, although I haven't got any access to regiment or other histories which can help... Thanks, Balazs
