Order of Medjidie... good one or bad one?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Am part Turkish and have always wanted to get a few Turkish (Ottoman) Orders but generally they're way out of my range. Am eyeing one but I know there are a ton of fakes out there and I know enough to be almost dangerous when it comes to this area. Would deeply appreciate any help anyone can give re: good or bad and if possible roughly (assuming good) what a decent price would be.

Here's the pics... fingers crossed.

Many thanks!

Dan

Hello Dan;

It appears like you have something there that looks like the Turkish Order of Medjidie -5th class.  I say, "looks like" because I don't like this one.  However, there are others on this forum with a LOT more experience than me with these orders, and they may disagree.

There are better quality Medjidies that can be purchased for $300 -$500.  In the last two years there has been some downward price pressure on these awards.

It is not 5th class because it seems that the part where the tughra is not silver and I wouldn't suggest this one.

Well, that seems to be two thumbs down so think I'll skip this on. DEEPLY appreciate the input guy! :-)

Many thanks!
