near Paris, approximatively in 2000 I believe, because I paid it 400 french francs, so 60 euros. The guy didn't knew what he sold, it was coming from the family. How lucky I was! But I was surely the only guy in this militaria fair to know what was this order...

I have an Order of the Jugoslavian Flag, 4th Class numbered on the reverse '542' and a 5th Class, unnumbered, but with a certificated to 'Marie-Ghislaine Vlekke'. Is there a date for when the numbering ended and the unnumbered versions began to be issued? Gunner 1

For sale right now at Auktionhaus Carsten Zeige. It belonged to a former East German citizen. Strating price of ? 1500. Tehy are selling few things from the former head of the Stasi Erich Mielke. It might have been his order. :speechless1:

Bryan,

Gorgious looking order. Unfortunately, one must have deep pockets to shop with Zeige.

I am beginning to doubt some of these auctions claiming to be Mielke's items. Just too many of them being offered these days. Thanks for posting this [icture. We'd all like one that looks like this one does.

Regards,

Gordon

I will post better pics and show the s/n if there is any. The price was 123 Euro so I think it was a bargain.

Now I have to find a certificate :)

Best regards from rainy Sweden

Now the Order has arrived and its truly amazing :love:

It has been issued to a Swedish business man but I dont have his name yet, what I do right now is to try and get as many names for people who had this order in the different classes. I have some names alredy but there must be more out there :beer: So If anyone has a name for a person awarded to any class of the Yugoslavian Flag please let me know and I will make some simple database.

Here is some more pics of my order it is a later ex without number.

Hi Christerd,

this is a great idea to setup a database with name of awardees. :beer:

Great Wlodzimierz !!

A lot of new names , I will now try to get some order in my small base and see how many we can get names to.

Of course its easier to name the 1st class-2nd class like princess Anne of England :cheeky:

But I think by combing the internet we can find at least some names. I found 3 + people from Sweden who got the 1st class and no one was Royal.

Thanks again W ,

Christer
