Serbia - Original Chetnik items

315 posts in this topic

I know nothing about Serbian awards or badges but my first reaction to that kind of verdigris, cynic that I am, is that it could very well be covering a multitude of sins - imperfections in this case.

Hello everybody!

I am new to the forum and I thought that I should contribute a little with some items I got. 

First off, a document from 24. October 1943 regarding logistics. You can barely see the deaths head stamp.

Here is some pictures of Chetniks.

And finally two Ravna Gora badges. One of them was previously owned by a Vojvoda who later fled communist Yugoslavia.

Welcome on board Dragoljub!Thanks for reminding me that I have a few documents with scull and crossbones in my database.The earliest one I could find is a drawing from Chilandari Monastery depicting "Adams head".The inscription is in church Slavonic and it is signed by "Bulgarian"...The last scan is from the document in my possession with the official seal and signature of Genaral Mihailovic himself!

Добро дошао на форум Драгољубе!Хвала шти си ме подсетио да и ја имам неколико документа са Четничким грбом-лобањом са укрштеник бутним костима у мојој датотеци.Прва и најстарија слика је из Манастира Хиландара са Старословенским текстом о "Адамовој Глави".Последња слика је скен документа из моје колекције са својеручним потписом и печатом Ђенерала Михаловића!

Wonderful documents, Chetnik! These are indeed unique. I would guess that Draza's signature would cost some money...! 

I was offered today to buy 6-7 original WW2 photos from 1944 on various chetniks. A few of the photos was german on Ravna Gora chetniks in german prison camps. I was offered by my contact in north Serbia to buy them for around 10 €. What do you say? fair price?

Pozdrav, Za kralja i Otadzbinu! :-)

Hello Dragoljub!Glad that you liked the photos,hope that other Forum members liked them as well.Couple more for you and respectable members,I think that document with General Mihailovich signature and seal of the  supreme headquarters was offered for sale on Ebay recently for some unbelievable sum(6000$USA).I got mine as a gift!There is a earlier(initial) improvised version of supreme headquarters seal with scull and crossbones.I submit the scan of the document with that seal, Genaral Mihailovic`s (Chicha`s) signature is clearly visible.

Photos of chetniks captured by Axis soldiers are extremely rare and consequently very expensive!To pay 10E for original photo like that is a basement bargain.GRAB IT!!!

I have couple scans with similar/same subject which might interest you.Pay attention to the photos of Axis  soldiers  with the captured Chetnik flag.

Greetings.

С вером Бога,Слобода или Смрт!Равна Гора-победити мора!

A Ravna Gora badge, "Sloboda ili Smrt" = "Freedom or Death". On the back it´s written "Fabrika Resava". Does anybody have a knowledge about that manufacturer?

I bought this kokarda more than a quarter of a century ago…I was told that this is one of the earliest/rarest models from the period 1903-1914.I think I got the photographic proof recently!

Ову кокарду сам купио пре више од 25 година.Кад је купих,човек који ми је продао ми рече да је ово стара комитска кокарда.Мислим да сам коначно нашао фотографски доказ за то!

Поздрав свима.

Занима ме да ли је неко виђао кокарду коју носи војвода Ђекић на овим сликама? Ако неко има изглед кокарде замолио бих га да избаци овде. Унапред хвала. Велики поздрав за све.
