  4. Thought I would share a group that I have brought into my collection, it is a double OG III with both awards given 10 days apart and as you can see the numbers are almost 47,000 apart as well the higher numbered OG III was given first The 1st OG III was in the first instance recommended for a OGPW 1 so a big down grade for some reason regards

    BURMA -- ORDER OF THE STAR OF THE REVOLUTION

    in regards to the first star I can confirm 3rd class I will try and post a reverse of the second class when I have scanned it in regards to the star with the gilded center this was never issued officially, as all stars carried the same centers which where enameled or coloured never plain, the difference is the wording on the back 1st class is very hard to find, 3rd class is easier, 2nd also not common I am lucky enough to have 7 x 3rd class and 2 x 2nd class in my collection and there is sight variations between some of them hope this helps regards

    TFWM

    Hello Paul thank you Kind regards Caz
  23. I suppose living in the UK WW 1 medals are not as high in prices as Canada. I have picked up BWM Canadian Units for around 25 - 35 pounds, but have seen prices constantly pushing up over the last few years. Yes agree that looking at a certain unit, battle etc is the best way forward (something i wish I had done years ago) as there are so many options to choose from. End of the day its about the enjoyment of researching the medal and its owners history if you can as often there are great suprises to be had Caz
  24. Just wanted to share 2 more Thai Orders / Medals I have brought Order of the White Elephant 2nd Class, in case of issue, I was told Rama VI period? Also a Scout Medal, not sure which one this is as the ribbon different to other Scout Medals I have seen, was told 100th Anniversary medal for Scouts? any help or information would be great in relation to both Medals Regards and thanks Caz
