Herds are not just known to be seen with respect to the best herder badge but also with Sukhbaatar's!

Here's mine. :love: Beware, risk of enamel overdosis which can be harmful to your life savings! :cheeky:

Let's add some more "weight" to this discussion:

- pinback nr 1863: 59.4

- pinback nr 1966: 58.6

Mine, ranging from the utterly sublime to the completely ridiculous.

(Took a while to get them to behave on the scanner surface -- rather like the historical Sukhbaatar?)

Weights (screw plate removed):

1- Screwback, #_ - 56.7 g

2- Screwback, #158 - 55.3 g

3- Screwback, #423 - 56.85 g

4- Pinback, #1726 - 58.7 g

5- Nasty brassy, no # - 61.2 g

The Sukbaatar may well the the sexiest order around. :love::love:

It is what "hooked" me onto Mongolian stuff.

I hope the "new Mongolia" keeps it, even in its current ugly form.

Wow! How many are there of those? Only 3 were given out correct?

What would something like that be worth????

Well, "mine"? No. But it is currentlly in my custody. The owner (the recipient) is dead. And I do not believe I would dispute with him the ownership of his award.

:beer:

And now there really is only 1 available on dealers sites... close to 2K!!! :speechless:

Actually, there is a second one available, but it is of the current "brassy nasty" variety and unnumbered (unissued?).

Still, in short supply.

But, when you realize that we are looking at a total issue of Sukhbaatars only in the range of a couple of thousand pieces, it is rather amazing at the number of pieces already in captivity.

But, still, where DID I park that tardis to get back to the "good old days", . . . !! :P

Recently found another one for sale on a German dealers site. 2K USD as well. On the other hand, can't think of an award which is more deserving of the term "eye candy" than an SB.

these are pretty damn nice awards!! how much do they normaly cost??? :beer:

Just noticed one at EUR 1600 (probably the same one Bob referenced just above?). Did not memtion screwback/pinback or number, but didn't seem to be the current nasty type.
