  2. The explanation for the rough finish of the MVK2 that started the thread is not that it was immersed in water. The explanation was provided in my two postings above along with relevant photographs of other crosses that fall into the same classification... namely, Gussfertigungen aus Geschützbronze (cast crosses made from captured enemy artillery pieces.) As stated, these genuine, period-original, CAST crosses range from mediocre looking to crappy looking. But they are 100% original to the period. I don't know why I bother writing anything in my posts because some peop

  5. Let's think logically. The commemorative Czechoslovak medal for 25 and 30 years of physical education with three stripes was issued in 1978. On the presented bar there is no ribbon of the medal "60 years of the Soviet Army", that is, this year he was neither an officer nor an ensign. The bar was assembled after May 15, 1988. Yes, it is possible to assume that the cavalier served on the territory of Czechoslovakia in the period from 1976 to 1980 and for participating in some competitions he was suddenly awarded a ministerial civil medal, but there are a lot of" minus signs " for

  6. Over a year ago, I spotted a train guard wearing enamel ribbons on his uniform - a trio of Golden Jubilee, Diamond Jubilee, and Cadet Forces Medal. He was a bit startled when I asked him which of the Cadets he'd been involved with, without mentioning the ribbons at all!

  8. Marked with color (circled the location of the regiment) green - more than 140 crosses per regiment light green-from 120 to 140 crosses per regiment light brown-from 100 to 120 yellow - from 80 to 100 pink-from 60 to 80 orange - from 40 to 60 red - from 20 to 40 empty field (black circle on the map) - from 0 to 20. The first mass-scale in terms of the number of Mobilization Crosses awarded is the border green-light green-light brown belt of the Russian-Serbian and the red - black belt, which tends to zero, is the rear one. That is, the most decorated regiments on

  11. You also have the Russians bringing back many of their old civilian/military medals that were abolished after the Communists had come to power, plus some of their Communist medals have been kept; however, the red ribbon for those medals have been replaced by the white, blue, red ribbon of the today Russian flag and have been renamed. I am sure that many of those people who were conquered by the Russians (the Poles, the Baltic States, the various states in Asia, the Caucasus countries, etc.) still have collective bad memories of what those Tsarist Russian medals represent. Finally, you don't
