i personally like the design of this award - and now try to get some more infos about it.

(have seen the other thread, but thought, it would be best, to creat an extra thread for the badge and its varietys)

used the pictures from the battushig book

(can be something said, if those where awarded during the same time or is one earlier? and also which one is rarer?)

A detailed scan of a rather "salty" first variety (B #J01), numbered "380" (and doing the best I can on a scan of the reverse -- those long posts make it a challenge).

It seems this one is now the lowest S/N observed (at least in the Forum)

S/N 15 ;)

And the screwnut that goes with.

Is it a mint mark? A maker's mark? Or a "8" ? Why? For what? Any suggestions? Have you guys seen others with this kind of mark, among your pieces?

Interesting. I just got one in (#155) with the same very crude screw back. No mark identifiable, but clearly Mongol-made. No help from the Friendly Northern Neighbor here.

Thanks Ed.

Same screwnut indeed, as for the few others I've seen.

I'll do some research on that mark, whatever it is.

Oh . . . nice . . . the J03s are elusive!

:beer:

Yes, hard to decide which one is my favorite as I also like J 02 and J 04 quite a lot.

J 01 is the most rudely made, it has it's own charm of course, but I like more any of the 3 others, probably with J 03 and J 02 as my real favorites on this "Agriculture" series :D

Guys, please check out the screwnuts of your J 01 pieces to see if we find the same or other marks on them.

Thanks,

Dolf

Here's a question. I have seen the J02 mirror-backs (which I believe to be earlier than the flat-back J02s) in both silvered bronze and bronze versions (is the silver coating simply gone?) and with serial numbers at 11-o'clock (Battushig's example. #32) and at 8-o'clock (this specimen, #2949). What is happening here??

Congrats Dolf a very nice item indeed.

Well it would be rude not to share so here goes.

Not sure if I wanna keep them both but they sure look good as a pair.

And my other J01 (#380) shown in post 6 above -- http://gmic.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=5229&st=5 -- has the same screwnut, but no apparent mark. Will drag it out and re-squint.
