  1. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to see any markings on the ring or anywhere else. The other problem is that someone butchered all three orders by removing central medallion on one side, in order to display them in a frame. The other two orders which I am quite familiar with, have the markings, both but this Order of Saint Alexander. I will post pictures of the reverse side of the order.
  2. Luckily I have acquired this three orders which was most probably awarded to the same person. While it was quite easy to determine producers of the Serbian Order of Saint Sava and Montenegrin Order of Danilo I, I was unable to find any information about this Bulgarian Order of Saint Alexander. By no means I am not able to identify producer and even the time of possible award of this particular commander degree of Bulgarian order. I kindly ask for help.
  3. Just be careful next time when you see Spomenica for sale. About that mold, I have spotted one, a year or so ago, but after close inspection of the pictures, I've realised that that specific one was actually for gravestones, not for original orders... It should be two pieces construction, not one... I suspect that someone made a new mold with the original Spomenica, with the number, and that the reason why you can see proper reverse side...
  4. Actually, the left one is fake. Normally I will get mad if I came across the fake one, but I possess five original, and I am happy to have this fake one. I intentionally posted pictures of this two,as this should be the same lot. Somebody must made a lot of effort to make a copy of this Spomenica. The front side is marvellously modelled as if it is in some kind of the frame you would not spot any difference. Even the reverse side is modelled in the same manner as the original. it's not so precise detailed,but it should be produced in 1945, so someone could take it for real. Main difference is in the weight. original silver one weights between 36 up to 38 gr, and this one is much lighter, 17.8 gr. I just don't understand why someone haven't used silver as it would be next to perfect copy... Just be careful...
  5. And this is the picture of it. One is genuine, and another is fake.. And the reverse side
  6. For the first time in my career I came across the fake of Yugoslav Partisan testimony 1941. It's actually a very good fake, with lots of details on the front, and a decent back side. It even has a four digits number and not so good two hallmarks... Actually, main difference is in the material of production, as this weights around 18gr...
  7. I doubt it, as I have seen a bunch of these in a recent times...
  8. Excellent and very rare medal. It was indeed a police medal in one of the socialist republics in Yugoslavia -Croatia. The only thing I would question is the number of awarded, as it could be just a little bit higher...
  9. Many thanks for your very detailed answer. So we now now that the those are the collar ranks of the officer of the XI class, e.g. sub lieutenant. This is the picture of the revers side, in order to try to check the color pattern. As to the star (sternrosette) it is made of the silvered metal, but I don't think it's stamped
  10. I possess those collar ranks, but as I am not so familiar with Austria-Hungary uniforms, can somebody help me with this. Naturally, I am just assuming that belong to the Austro-Hungarian empire... And to which rank they correspond to?
  11. I am presenting two Orders of the White Eagle with swords, which should be produced by the same Parisian company Arthus Bertrand. Nevertheless, there are striking differences between them. They are both representing e.g. War production, where the swords, blue enameled ribbons and central medallion were produced from one piece of metal. Eagles heads look completely different, and on the reverse the central medallion, including red enamel and even the it's shape shows striking differences. The right price has a French mark for silver (Boar's head) on the ring. And the reverse side
  12. Well preserved piece. It's quite easy to determine this one. Hugenin production from the (most probably) 1922-1938 period.
