    More things than I can easily afford. :(
    Soviet and Imperial German ODMs for the most part. DDR and TR as well as Mongolian. I'd like to take the Yugoslavian plunge as well.
    Music, cooking, Pens/Bucs/Stillers, reading, websurfing.
    Need I go on? :)

  1. 1. Doesn't bother me. Could be a place-holder or part of a display. Heck, even Cosplay or whatever the kids are doing these days. 2. Not wrong at all if both are aware. Both are my opinion.
  2. What is the weird little finger of the hand holding the flower on these Orders? Every time I see an image of these awards my eyes go to that finger. So weird. IMHO
  3. Yeah, that's exactly what it is; an EK2. RK had the suspension loop parallel to the frame, EK2 loops are perpendicular (see image). That's not to say it wasn't worn that way (as a RK); there were instances of that happening in WW2. But unless there is some seriously solid provenance proving that it's just an EK2
  4. That medal has a very interesting 'ear'. Never seen one as big as that.
  5. My Partisan theme display, just finished today. I added the cap star just to round out the collection. And it somewhat resembles the Partisan Stars, especially in size.
  6. Got outbid. ;( To make matters worse it was a group of 5.
  7. I just received this one two days ago. Got sniped on the document that went with it but I like this early version. Looks like it had a home repair done to the ring which makes me like it all the more.
  8. Just got this one along with a Order of Bravery as part of a failed attempt to collect a group of docs to one person. I love the simple design, and typical Yugoslavian quality, of this medal.
  9. I agree with this, and everything else you posted. Also, I've purchased from the first two sellers you mentioned with no concerns whatsoever.
  10. Hard to believe it's been 5 years since we found that. And since it's posthumous it never saw battle so whatever happened to it is really a mystery. I can see the H&S being removed for the gold, but the rest of the defacing? No clue.
  11. I think "БУТАФОРИЯ" translates to "props" i.e. reproductions.
  12. https://forum.faleristika.info/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=761653

    Hi,here it is the discussion about this badge.The user Ljubitelj7 took many of them in the office but he did not ask about the resource.Regards,Nick

  13. True, but I know what it is. I just don't know why it was made in France? Was hoping one of the learned members here knew a little about FIA Lyon.
  14. Can you help me with this strange, Soviet badge, please? I've collected Soviet items for years now and have never seen a Soviet badge manufactured by a Capitalist Country. This Soviet style looks to me 1950s, but It could be earlier, even pre-WW2. It's a long service (10 years I assume) badge issued by a 'sports committee' in the USSR. Google shows me FIA Lyon started (and still exists) as a badge and medal manufacturer in 1928. Any ideas?
