  1. Very nice! Where did you find these?
  2. Yes, I have the names to most of the awards.
  3. Да, зеленые продаются. Золотые больше не доступны.
  4. Beautiful. I wish I could get a pair of Castro's boards!
  5. I'd like to hear from anyone where one can find good genuine SVN insignia in HCMC today. Such places tend to be discreet as SVN insignia is reportedly illegal there. If you're after genuine current issue vietnamese insignia, the Danh Sinh market has plenty of it.
  6. Hello Paul, thank you for your reply to this thread. I would love to see a photo of your KC set to the RNZAF AC. Alf Thanks Michael, for sharing these excellent photos of the MRAF ranks in your collection. Do you also have other Marshal-level ranks? I'd love to see photos of those too. Alf
  7. Thank you all for the comments. I had great fun photographing these pieces as they are near-impossible to come by these days. There are two medals I did not include in this article - the Defence Medal (yellow ribbon with stripes), and the Uniformed Services Malaysia Medal which Hugh kindly posted.
  8. Cazack, I know a district in Bangkok that sells practically all the Thai medals and decorations you will ever want. Modern ones of course. If you will PM me I can give you some directions.
  9. Gents, I would like to share with you some pictures of high-ranking Cambodian ribbon bars that I picked up from a tailor in Phnom Penh through a friend. Two of them are made from individual silk threads hand laid to form the ribbons, a practice fairly common in Thailand as well, while one of them is made from actual medal ribbons.
  10. Cambodia army Field Marshal shoulder boards, and GRK 4-star general shoulder boards. Both highest ranks for their respective branches. Quite hard to come by. Original and mint. $250 each pair.
  11. Libya general officers rank epaulettes. Metal insignia. One side each. $25 for the pair.
  12. Original Syrian field marshal shoulder boards, obtained in-country. Quite hard to find these now. $250.
  13. For sale, a pair of original 4-star Mongolian general shoulder boards. Very rare. $2,500.
  14. These are what the Syrian eagles and stars look like on a set of ranks I have.
  15. I'm looking to buy one, if anyone has one to sell...
