No, on Khedive's Sudan ribbon. Woudl guess a good one-third of their medals (even the easy British ones) are mis-ribboned. They don't care either.

Should look like this (though this is a lower class):

The Order of the Holy Saint they have is immensely bizarre and is probably a (unique, unreported, and unpublished) master's chain. A high agenda item is to get so eone with the key to open the case for photography for the next edition of McClenaghan's fine book. The jewel should look like:

Very nice order, Ed. :jumping:

About the two points you mentioned : how can you explain this ? Why are they mis-ribboned ? I've to say that the few medals I have seen for sale in India in "classic" antiques shops (not experts) were proposed... without ribbon !!! :speechless1:

Cheers.

Almost all medals that come to market in India are naked. Has to do with the mechanism by which they have (until VERY recently) come to market. Re-ribboning them is common habitual practice (however scandalous that may sound to the German collector crowd).

Medals from the States are a special problem though, as most of the ribbons are rarer than the medals themslelves. Except for Patiala (and some Bokaner) stuff that has come to market direct from the families (sort of), a naked State medal will stay naked 99.9% of the time. I have paid a lot for the few complete rolls (10 inches across) of some States ribbon that I hoard, even though I do not have medals to match.

That's a very nice order. I have seen this picture in YOUR excellent site dedicated to Patiala State orders and medals :

http://faculty.winthrop.edu/haynese/medals...ls/Patiala.html

I can only recommand this site, as it allowed me to know more and more about all these unknown orders and medals. I confess I have seen them and taken pics without having the less idea of what they were.

Thanks again Ed :jumping::jumping::jumping: !!

Cheers.

PS : about the order, I agree it is quite different. Sorry that my pics are not precise enough... I will have to go back there !!!!
