  1. Thanks all It was like a shot in the water. I'm glad I didn't spend a penny on it before asking experts .. Well, let's keep looking. Best Regards Lambert
  2. Hi Paul Thank you, I will compare with the catalog. it can be a stroke of luck to find such a rare metal in a garage sale. we will see! Best Regards Lambert ...
  3. Hello All I have doubts about this medal. I know that what the experts think . is Original or Fake? Best Regards Lambert
  4. awarded to approximately 6000 Brazilian soldiers
  5. Hello Bill .. Thank you very much for elucidating the issue of the buckle on the Vic Portuguese . Regards Lambert
  6. Congratulations Bil !! Very nice. Unfortunately I do not know the symbolism of the buckle on the Ribbon of the Medal .. I have Portuguese collectors friends, but not even they have consensus on the purpose. I think it may be by the time of service; example: 10 years of Armed Forces etc ... but I'm not sure. So I believe the Buckle can be inserted into the Ribbon after some time. Regards Lambert
  7. I do not know for sure, it has been a long time since I followed the sales auctions. ... Lambert
  8. USS Kerlew (ID-1325) was a USS Kerlew (ID-1325) was a United States Navy cargo ship in commission from 1918 to 1919.
  9. Hi Gábor.. Not necessarily, although it is "rare" it is not an official medal, so price quotation may not mean it is more coveted. I always give more value to the OFFICIAL medal. But for who Collects the VICs (Victory Medals), (not a very large group) These medals can be quite interesting. I what I think. Best Regards Lambert
  10. No, it's an Unofficial Type 2. without the sculptor's signature. Note the absence of "O" on the back of the medal. Possibly made in France It's a very hard medal to find I consider Rare. A ribbon is invaluable. Lambert
  11. Yes it's an Official medal with the Italian ribbon (maybe) .. It's a good piece. Lambert
  12. French Medal of the 1920s, this model, described as "reproduction" by A. Laslo, is rarer than the production models of Czechoslovakia. nice example! Lambert
  13. This medal is considered "a fantasy" , there is no evidence that it really was an official commemorative medal of the First World War. unfortunately. Lambert
  14. its variety does not have the back of the medal, I got a picture of this example and the illustration of a book showing the variations of the Italian VIC. Lambert
  15. The only allowed on the Vic British ribbon was the MID emblem.
  16. The Medal of Courage, Abnegation and Humanity comprises the following degrees: Gold, Silver and Copper Medal. The Gold Medal is granted to the undisputed or collectivity who renders a relativissímo service to the sea salvation or who, having been awarded twice with the silver medal, has acquired the right to the third medal of the same degree. The Silver Medal is awarded to the undivided or collectivity who provides a relevant service to the salvation of shipwrecked or who, having twice been awarded the copper medal, has acquired the right to the third medal of the same rank.
  17. Hello Paulo I actually saw some commemorative medals 1905, with HMS Vitory in his verse. but this type I confess I did not know. Appeared to me here in Brazil in an auction house, I finished for a good price .. but I confess it was a "shot in the dark" I know nothing about it.
