    A very fine early strike of the Antarctica Service Medal with crisp detail and fine toning to the badge. Mounted on an early crimp brooch and unmarked. The Antarctica Service Medal was established by the United States Congress on July 7, 1960, under Public Law 600 of the 86th Congress. The medal was intended as a military award to replace several commemorative awards which had been issued for previous Antarctica expeditions from 1928 to 1941. Overall excellent condition with much higher quality than later modern strikes. Shipped USPS First Class Intl or Domestic

    Vintage Equestrian Order Of The Holy Sepulchre Cased Medal Sets Knight & Ladies or Dame version and Knight/Dame Commander sets . The Dame sets as evidenced by the bow style suspension. This set features an enameled Jerusalem Cross with a plain reverse mounted on a V stitched neck cravat. Also comes with stick pin and miniature medal which is mounted on a yellow and white bar indicating the colors of the Vatican. There’s tape with some initials on the lid which I’ve not removed. I’d date the sets from the 1980s. The badge is unmarked as in photo of reverse. The cravat has snap attachments. Case is labeled on the side LHS which I believe is Lady Holy Sepulchre. The KC for the male is marked with the Drs name and KC. The stars are missing from the Knight and Dame Commander sets. The Dame set has the prized pilgrimage shell brooch for physically making a pilgrimage to Jerusalem to aid the sick. From a Buffalo, NY estate of esteemed doctors/researchers Doctors Julian and Clara Ambrus. While studying medicine at the University of Budapest in his native Hungary during World War II, he was part of the resistance, first against the Nazis and then against the Soviets. Captured and thrown into a Soviet prisoner of war camp in 1945, he drew on his medical training to befriend a Russian woman doctor. After she tipped him off that all of the prisoners were going to be shipped to a gulag in Siberia the next day, he spent the night digging a tunnel under a barbed wire enclosure. When he emerged on the other side, there was the doctor, pouring glasses of vodka for the guards who were manning machine guns in the watchtowers, distracting them long enough so that he could make his escape. He began medical studies in 1942 and married classmate Clara M. Bayer, in 1944. During the war, his wife and her family sheltered Jews hiding from the Nazis in their home and in a vacant textile factory nearby. For saving hundreds from the Holocaust, she later received the Righteous of the Nations Award, the Israeli government’s highest honor for those who are not Jews. Dr. Ambrus went on to become director of cancer research at what was then Roswell Park Memorial Institute. Also a department chairman at the University at Buffalo Medical School, he trained hundreds of graduate student researchers and guided their work. He lectured at medical schools and symposiums around the world. He and his wife helped settle refugees from the 1956 Hungarian Uprising, finding jobs for about fifty former army officers in Roswell Park’s experimental chimpanzee colony. His wife Clara was research scientist at Roswell for twenty-five years. Set in excellent condition with a rich history and provenance. Condition is Used. Shipped with USPS Priority Mail or USPS International Priority Mail

  10. Does anyone have an image of the lapel button, if there is one?
  11. A new addition to the fold, being from Buffalo NY we thought it was perfect.
  12. John its modern maybe 1980s? No enamel on reverse, might be from the US Lieutenancy or region of the order. With no sash I’d say not more than $200 but certainly a nice looking piece. The quality of manufacturing is diminished in the more modern pieces so if you can examine it do so
  13. Great thought thank you I hadn’t thought of that at all. It tracks with the cartoon nature of the whole thing.
  14. Seeking help in identifying and translating this manual. I did not take pictures of every page but a sampling to determine what it is. I found this in a blown out warehouse building on Camp Taji along with lots of other handmade log books. many thanks, Anthony The most interesting are the first 2 pages
  15. Reinhard This is the Hassan al Bakr Teacher Order. Looks like the better quality version vice in country later production which was much more crude in nature.
