herder badges ...

Recommended Posts

J 02 Flatback, S/N 1806 (at 7 o'clock).

Weight: 15,60gr

Obverse:

Dolf

PS: Notice that all weights given here are without the screwnuts!

Anyway, amazingly the screwnut of my #4450 is much bigger than all the others, so not sure if it's the right one, even if it was modified it must have been a long time ago as revealed by the matching marks on the reverse!

Dolf,

I was under the impression that the back of the early series is somewhat "textured" where as the 4500 series is very smooth. Can you confirm this.

Come now, is it possible for anything that has to do with Mongolian awards to get "less complicated"?!

As with all other Mongolian awards, these badges deserve -- and are getting here -- a closer and more focused look that has ever taken place before.

Jan,

Oh yes, definetely true!

Even if my scanner has a tendency to darken my pieces (specially the reverses with a bright silver color) I believe that is still possible to see if comparing the pic of the reverse of #4450 posted above with those of #1500 and #1806, right?

Ok, I see, Mr. Holmes :blush:

Oh . . . GIGANTIC! (Ricky will kvetch!)

That number is 1500!!!!!!!!!!???????????????

"Bizarre" doesn't even cover it!

We have in the database:

Type 1 (Mongol legend, crude construction, mirror reverse); Low = 15/High = 399

Type 2.1.1 (Mongol legend, mirror reverse, serial number at 7 o?clock); Low = 32/High = 4100

Type 2.1.2 (Mongol legend, mirror reverse, serial number at 10 o?clock); Low = 484/High = 496

Type 2.2 (Mongol legend, flat reverse); Low = 4164/High = 4541

Type 3 (Cyrillic legend, unnumbered)

1500????? :rolleyes:

That selfsame badge had been posted here before, but due to great recent complexities in my life it never got entered in my notes. Oops.

It is however, the lowest recorded number for that type. And I envy you it!!

Be aware, buddy . . . once you have gone over to the the "snouts", you are truly hooked:

(And note, by the way, the enamel color difference on the bottom two . . . :o )

Type 3 (Cyrillic legend, unnumbered)

Enamel color noted. As with the ranger badges??
