  1. Hi Luojie, The ribbon looks the same indeed, but the medal does not. It seems a combination of the meritorious medal and the liberation medal ribbon. Cheers Sampo
  2. Hi Herman, Maybe J. Le Heux from the Dutch Artillery? Cheers Sampo
  3. Hi Laurentius, This is the official group of M C van Houten. It was donated to the National Military Museum, and was recently restaurated. So yes, this is his actual group! Cheers Sampo
  4. Hello, Is there a date of manufacturing in the uniform? If this is made during WW2, the medals are likely the Order of Orange Nassau (medal grade in silver or gold) and a NCO Loyal Service medal for 36 or 24 years of service. The medals for actions in the second world war came from 1948 onward. Or a Loyal service medal and a 14-18 mobilization cross and a loyal service medal. Or a loyal service medal and a cross for important war actions. The possibilities are wide. When we know the date, we can start from there, a name would even be better! Cheers Sampo
  5. Hello, There is a broad offer of Italian medals for missions in Kosovo, Bosnia, Lebanon, Somalia etc. But there are also a lot of variations in these medals. Can anyone help me in what to look for to buy an original issued Italian mission medal. I found a group, but is is real and why? Thanks!
  6. Hello, Does anyone know if there are any copies of the Polish campaign stars? And how can you distinguish an original star? Cheers Sampo
  7. Hi Nick, Not exactly, these medals are for duty only. For the peace missions the Norwegians have other medals. Cheers
  8. Hi, Most likely he has received it in his position of Minister of Foreign Affairs (1956-1971). There was a state visit of Nepal in 1967. Sampo

    Hi Nick, For the officer Cote D'Ivoire, the missing thing in the lower right corner is a button device. These Usually go between 60-90 euro. Cheers Sampo
  10. Hi OvBacon, Yes, that is the final missing link, you where right, the last medal is the 1948 inauguration medal. Cheers Sampo
  11. Hi OvBacon, I think you are pretty close, I see: Not really clear this first one(need better picture, but I am pretty sure it is not the 1948 inauguration medal) Royal wedding medal 1937 War cross 1940-1945 Officer loyal service cross Mobilisation cross 1914-1918 Marching proficiency cross Cheers Sampo
  12. Hi OvBacon, Looks like the Belgium order of Leopold , officer to me, which was more common with the Dutch lion order. Cheers Sampo Could be the Belgium order of the Crown, but that depends if the colour is more burgundy rather than Violet. Cheers Sampo
  13. Hi John, I have checked the books on them, if there are no markings, it is not a gold one. At first sight this looks like a 1960-1980 type made by "van Wielik" The Hague, and they are always gilted. Take care Sampo
