Orders and Medals of Socialist Albania

Recommended Posts

Hello there,

i have a very small collection of albanian orders and medals and i wonder, what else is out there. I don´t see them very often on the market, so they either pretty scarce or the have no market at all. I  have no idea, what it is.

However, here is, what i have:

 

Medal "Remembrance 1942-43"

Enjoy Albania...

You'll be wanting a copy of Eric Shena's The Decorations of Socialist Albania - available as a free PDF here: http://www.gmic.co.uk/uploads/Albania2.pdf

 

Thanks, Megan.

I have a hardcopy from Eric´s book, as i helped him a little bit with material for his book back then, but thanks for the link, its good to have a copy on the computer too.

Edit: I just noticed, its an extended version. Even better!
