  1. Hello, I'm pretty sure that the is a regimental medal for the 2nd Nassau Infantry Regiment No. 88. There is a date on the on the reverse in the center of the medal that reads: “24. 1. 99” . I'm not sure if the two digit year "99" is referencing 1799 or 1899. I checked the date against the regiment history and could not find anything specific to that date. Also on the reverse is inscribed around the medal is “LA BELLA ALLIANCE MESSA DE MEDELLIN” which I believe is some sort of reference to the regiments involvement at the Battle of Waterloo (1815) and the 1809 Battle of Medellín in Spain.
  2. I've been going through and rediscovering pieces in my collection. I have also been helping my kids put together Legos. This is the latest set.

  4. Hello, I was really sure where to post this since the identification section has been closed. Can anyone please help identify these slip-on shoulder straps? I assume they are for a junior air force officer. Thanks!
  5. Hi Sampo, Thank you for your reply! John
  6. Hello, Can anyone please help identify this foreign medal on this US Vietnam era miniature medal bar? I’m pretty sure that it is from either, Cambodia or Laos but can find no reference to it on-line. Thanks, John
  7. Hello, Can someone please translate this for me. I tried the photo translator & the Russian Keyboard apps to no avail. Thank you, John
  8. Hi Gordon, That would explain why I don't receive email notifications. Thank you for the heads up! Best, John
  9. EJ, Per your request. Here is a pic of the reverse side of the star. Thanks again for the help! John
  10. 922F, I apologize for the late response, for some reason I am no longer receiving notification of responses anymore. With that beign said, thank you very much for your time and effort in identifying this breast star for me! Have a great weekend! John
  11. Hello, I'm not sure if this post belongs here since I do not know what it is. With that being said can anyone please help identify this breast star? I’m pretty sure it has something to do with the Catholic faith but I am unaware of what organization of nation it is from. The star measures 9 x 9 cm (3.54” x 3.54” inches) and weighs 93 grms (3.30 oz). The reverse has a pin and open catch fastener with no maker or hallmarks. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Best, John
  12. Bayern, That is interesting. Maybe it was a given that people would know who the crown prince and princess were by their effigies? Sorry about Argentina's loss to Mali in the U20 World Cup yesterday...it was a good match.
  13. Bayern, Thank you for you for the reply as well as your time! Best, John
