Kingdom of Serbia - Military Academy Badge

Recommended Posts

I just noticed a terrible fake on ebay. There is of course no mention of this in the description, it is offered as Serbian Military Academy Badge 1860(!?)-1880 Rare.

Even though photos are pretty bad I think it's obvious that the badge is not original.

I was offered with that specific one, and I had to decline it, as it was obviously fake. I was told that was a cheaper version for those students who couldn't afford silver version...

But, as it was a year ago, back than, it was different seller from Croatia...

It's definitely a copy even though the seller wrote: "Sale item from the pictures, I guarantee that it is genuine."
Officers who completed the Higher School of Military Academy (Виша школа Војне академије) received the badge and diploma. According to the Law on Military Academy (Закон о устројству Војне Академије) they had to pay some tax, but I doubt its amount had anything to do with the production material so I'm not buying the "poor students" story.
