  1. Hi Graf, I am glad that there are serious places where such topics are discussed. Unfortunately, counterfeits have always been associated with collecting - just a good collector needs to know what and where to buy. Often greed overcomes the reason when you buy something at a very reasonable price. I am very pleased that you have such a great knowledge of Bulgarian orders. I will show here the counterfeits I know to protect other collectors from fraud. I am sorry that a bad name has been created for the market and collectors in Bulgaria. fraudsters are a very small part, but as we say in Bulgaria - a spoonful of tar can ruin a whole bucket of brown. The hit now are the fake cortes from the kingdom of Bulgaria - several people have specialized and make excellent fakes, but I will release this in another topic. greetings from Bulgaria
  2. Hello Graf, everything you say is absolutely true - congratulations that you know them only by photos. I try to keep up to date with the new counterfeits so that I am aware of the market. Unfortunately - the "masters" are getting better, and some good workmanship is difficult to distinguish. now do not make them with soft enamel, and the test with a needle is not a guarantee. so, be careful when buying stars! Here is a photo with a real and fake 1st class military merit star Greetings!
  3. 100% fake! I know the person in whom he makes them. They can't make crosses, but they make all kinds of stars, which are difficult to distinguish from an inexperienced collector! Be careful!
  4. Hello, There is a third version of the medal. The one that ilieff shows is with two faces of the two medals - the avers of the standard medal and the revers of the medal with the inverted crowns. There is a difference in the writing of "Царство България"/"Kingdom Bulgaria"/, and the positioning of the lion. The medallion of both medals is the same - a diameter of 19 millimeters The ribbon is original but has a different size - 25mm, and is folded in German style.
  5. Hello, after many years of searching, I managed to get the test version of the medal "For the proclamation of Bulgarian independence in 1908". There is no information about this option, except for one picture in Prince Romanoff's book. We assume this is a tried version of P. Télge. Interestingly, the medal has a ribbon. That means it has been handed to someone. The ribbon is also different - it is narrower than the standard one. The dimensions of the cross are the same as the standard medal.
  6. Hi,the book is worth the price! There are many details that are not available anywhere else!
  7. Hi, for great regret, King Ferdinad's grandson, Simeon, has sold many possessions to King Ferdinand, as well as many of the orders of King Ferdinand! He should be very shy, but unfortunately - not so.
  8. Hi, This is the best book for the Bulgarian orders "St.Alexander" https://www.amazon.de/Bulgarien-Alexander-Orden-1881-Preiskatalog/dp/3937064303 http://www.ebay.de/itm/Bulgarien-St-Alexander-Orden-1881-1948-Preiskatalog-Band-2-Bretzendorfer-/142250145793 Greetings
