To Compare , A fake and an Original Order of Osmanie

Recommended Posts

Dear Asvar,

This system will not let me attach my picture files because it says my file is too large. So if you want to email me I will send you pictures of the medal that way. My email is d2saucybox@yahoo.com.

Best regards,

Alan

Dear Avsar,

Here are some pictures of the medal I picked up at the antiques store. The center on 1-side looks like it has be reglued side-ways? You can see glue squeezed out around the rim and on to the green enamel. Medal looks well made and enamel looks good to me but I do not know much about these medals. Anything you can tell me would be appreciated.

Sincere regards,

Alan

Dear Alan ,

Are those pictures that much small size , or i can not open them with my imac ?

It is very hard to tell something from a 4 cm size picture..

Can you post bigger ones ??

Thanks,

Avsar

PS: Even from this size , i feel that it is original , but as you can see , the cresent and the star part on it is missing , the center is definetely repaired as you mentioned , what about the condition of the enamels ?

Alan , if i will be you , i will not buy this order with this condition about his center unless it is not very cheap or has a own document, this Osmanie orders are very attractive orders , but they are not very rare (I mean the 3 th and 4th classes) , i always advice my customers to buy the best possible conditioned Osmanie and Medjidie Orders .. I mean they are not such as a gold Hunkar Iskelesi or

a big size Hareket-i Arz medal , which a collectioner will say ; I don't care about the condition , because i dont know when i will see them again in my life... Cheers .. Avsar IBAR

Thanks Avsar,

For some reason the system will not accept my photos unless I reduce them to this size. I have tried several times and has had problems. Thanks again for your information on the medal. I am going to list it on ebay and wanted to be sure it was original before doing so.

Best Regards,

Alan

Dear Murat ,

Congratulations for your new beautiful purchases.

I hope both of them will have a good place in your collection .

Both of them , Very nice and %100 original orders.

Specially the one which has the Solid Gold Crescent and Star with neck ribbon ... (i love them a lot) ,

and if you can find the Osmanie order full in gold , including the gold reverse center and the date of 699 (I can say that they are very rare as the ones with sabers) , don't miss it.

Also the 4th class is very nice and attractive.

All the best ,

Avsar IBAR

PS: For an information , i am attaching the Ottoman Numbers ...

The Ottoman (Arabic) Numbers .

Btw , Please consider that , as the numbers are same with the Arabic alphabet , Ottoman Language is very different and more rich then Arabic...
