  1. Hello Karhu,

    I hope everything is fine for you.

    Thanks for posting the Burkina Faso Order of youth & Sport.

    Might you be interested to sell it ? Or to barter for something else ? I always have some medals for barter.

    You can contact me by email : emmanuelhalleux@hotmail.com 

    Best regards.
