  1. I've used plain white vinegar on many a rusty classic car part with great success. Just drop it in a bowl and watch the bubbles . Leave it in till you're happy.
  2. You're welcome. Here's the original thread on these badges. enjoy jan Trade union badges
  3. It's a " 50 years of the trade union" badge/medal according to our dear friend Dr. Battushig. In his wonderful book on page 157, badge X 21. I wonder how the good doctor is.. It's been years since we've spoken. jan
  4. First let me say, thank you! to those of you who still contribute to the Mongolian forum, I realize it's been a bit quiet around here, but new topics are hard to find and this one may rank rather high on the "Sillymeter", but I found it interesting all the same! I just got in a low serial# Polar star (type 3 #583) and something caught my eye. On the inside of the screwplate there was a clearly discernable raised 'crossed sword' mark. It is on the area where the screw passes through the plate and the mark is therefore partially "damaged". I naturally checked my other orders and found that another polar star type3 serial#1035 had this same marking on its screwplate. I'm curious, is this a known mark with the soviet guys? Is this just a trivial little detail or does it possible suggest an origin for the plates, if not for the orders them selves? Anyway like I said earlier this might rank high on the "sillymeter" but any info and/or theories are more than welcome! JC
  5. Topic was more In a deep sleep than dead!! Thanks for for posting this and congrats on having one.. These are still a rare thing to find, believe me I've been looking. Jan
  6. Fakes!

    I've been watching this one too... Brown gold is extra special!!! I haven't looked too closely but I'm almost tempted to say that the silver part with blue enamel might be real and that the "gold" part has been replaced. Over the past 10 years I've seen 3 or 4 silver SB parts for sale so who knows this might be one of those butchered ones... Jan see post 101 in the SB thread.. Pin back 813 shown butchered.
  7. Hello,everyone

    Welcome to the forum... Absolutely fascinating items they have in that museum... You also have some nice cased orders there.... Give me another 6 weeks to translate that... It's been years since I last tried jan Would love some closeups of those documents!!
  8. A dealer has a set of 1941 general shoulder boards for 450 euros if that helps..
  9. More pictures please jan
  10. Deputy Badges

    Awesome Bob. So glad you're still discovering new things! I liked the youth quota idea, and that she was only around 23 when "elected". I had a look through my stash and I have # 74 so that one should be researchable. Also have 82... So close Do I contact the same gentleman who does the herder research? Actually still have two herder badges waiting to hear back about. Fun stuff!! Jan
  11. Mongolian Partisan Badge

    Great badge with character! The partisan himself sure looks a but weathered. Be interested to hear his story. On a related matter. There is a great looking partisan badge for sale on eBay right now. $400 opening bid. Sadly I don't trust the seller for 1 cent. That shooter badge sold for $750 and two days later it's back up.
  12. herder badges ...

    Very nice Bob. I have a few awaiting research that haven't come in yet. #476 Ive posted before, just waiting on the complete research for 478 and 588 I think. Not sure I even posted all the researched ones I already have... Time to double check. Nice to see I'm not the only one left still enjoying these badges..

  19. Fakes!

    thanks nick, Unbelievable that these are what the mongolian government is actually giving out these days. Sad. Next thing they'll make plastic medals like the Vietnamese did. Jan

  21. Fakes!

    Is this what I think it is? The worst looking Labour order ever or what? Sorry I can't post pics right now but to me this doesn't even look as good as the newer brass versions. Thoughts Jan http://m.ebay.com/itm/201240100203?nav=WATCHING_ACTIVE
  22. Sukhbaatar Order

    Yeah I saw that. In nearly fell of my chair and p%*#*#*^} myself laughing when I saw that.... Not only is he an optimist he's also a comedian.
