Turkish Liyakat medal

Recommended Posts

Hello Gentlemen,

Is anyone aware if this medal has been duplicated in both full and mini size? I am looking for them as well as the device for a ribbon bar.

Any help locating described items would be greatly appreciated.

Happy Holidays,

Vince

I'm sure German jewlers made them in the inter-war years. They'd make anything you needed or wanted, it seems. Unofficial awards for a lapsed State posed no problems.

Happy Holidays Ed,

Do you know where I can find them now?

My best,

Happy holidays to you and yours too.

Assume you'd find them with the familiar European dealers? And authentic ones from Turkish dealers?

Ed,

Racism is not usually your thing :-(

Dear Chris,

What I think Ed meant is that you would most likely get German issues (in the main) from the European dealers and official Ottoman pieces from the Turkish dealers. One could accuse of many things but racism is certainly not one of them.

All the best,

Paul

Strictly speaking they ain't - geographically it is at best questionable (although a strong swimmer could get there from the Greek islands!) and while they'd like to join the EU they have not yet done so! Very nice folks though.

But that aside, there's at least one Liyakat Medal (real one) in the latest Morton & Eden auction. Few other tasty Turkish pieces as well.

This is a really interesting subject and story also between us , Turks.

Our population is 80 Million , %17.8 of the population is living in Istanbul ,

thay makes 15 Million . Thoose are formal counts.. Reality is %5 - %8 more

then them.

15 Million Istanbul peoples , 10 Million are living in Europe part. So , let me say

in another way , 10 Million Europian Turks we have . Such as me , I born in

Europe not in Asia , as My father and Mother , in the part of bosphorus.

After I board my car , 15 Minutes , at the end of bridge

it is writing "Welcome to Asia" , both in English and Turkish Language.

What about the population of Luxemburg ? 474 Thousand , (July 2006 counting)

What about Switzerland All ? 7.5 Million (July 2006 counting)

We have 10 Million people living in Europian lands of Turkey since 556 years. (1453)

( Since the Ottoman Empire Sultan Fatih Mehmed the Conquer. )

So , our goverment want to Join EU , do we want ? I dont know , Am I Europian ? No comment !

I am Turk , by the way my wife is Christian , from the Middle of Europe.

At all i can say , to be a world human is Virtue , doesnt matter where you are from , who you are.

To be a good human ...

Best Personal Regards to my all friends in GMIC ,

Interesting. How was his name?

I seems that the medal was made of unedles Metall because it has the * mark.

Hi,

It is silver. The asteriks is for the ribbon appliance I think.
