    Strange Order of the Red Banner?

    I will have a look and see if I can dig out of my records to see how much I paid for it but I did buy it with a early Order of a red banner of labour as shown earlier in this thread I think I would be to scared to sell it just in case! Mogul, that was a good point you made you earlier about getting the age tested at a jewellers, I will have a look into that and see how easy it would be to do Vic

    Hi Mogul, I have a large collection of soviet medals and order most of which is on various threads on this forum. To be honest with you I have not had a good look through my medals for a while! Vic

    I have been out of loop for while, so I do apologise now i things have changed in absence from the scene, But I think we will never be 100% sure weather some of these early soviet medals are genuine or not, every one will have there own opinion and personally I am happy to have them in my collection. I love seeing these early pieces and I think they are asset to any collection. Vic
