  1. The ones I need for my collection is the following: Oscar II 1897 - light blue enamel Oscar II 1897 - red enamel Gustaf & Victoria 1906 ( I have the medal but not the ribbon) Gustaf V 1951 Carl XVI Gustaf 1996 Victoria & Daniel 2010 Carl XVI Gustaf 2013 Carl XVI Gustaf 2016 And all the jubilee medals as awarded to women with a bow (except Oscar II 1897 dark blue).
  2. Thank you for all replies! I´m a bit surprised that no one seem to own a full size in red enamel to show. I´ll let you know when and if I find one for my collection! And if anyone have a tip to where I can find Swedish jubilee medals I would happily listen. Both fullsized and minis.
  3. Hello! I recently bought this bag amongst some other badges and wonder if any of you recognizes it? I guess it is some kind of tourist piece from early 1900s, could it be some kind of "friendship between nations" badge? Since it has the Swedish colors, blue and yellow, behind the double eagle. Best regards Johan
  4. Hello! Thank you for your replies, I have tried to google "Ivan Stojanov" and "Иван Стоянов" without any luck. I was hoping that someone knew about any "state visit" or similar that Bulgaria made to Sweden in late 1941. Thanks once again! The search continues... //Johan
  5. Hello! I have a document for a Swedish order of the sword, knight 1st class awarded to bulgarian captain Iwan Stojanoff in november 1941. Does anyone have any information about mr Stojanoff? Or maybe even a photo of him?
  6. I meant the miniatures that Lars showed. My posts got messed up for some reason.
  7. I have never seen a miniature of these. Only heard about them. Are they in your collection? That is the one from Morton & Eden auction.
  8. The one sold at Morton & Eden 2014 was a dotted one. So you have seen the "sunray" examples? The award numbers for Oscar II Jubileumsminnestecken 1897 was as following: Light blue: 232 Dark blue: 268 Red: 49 (12 went to the royal family) Apparently it exists some faked red ones, where they have used a blue enameled one and re-done the enamel in red. Could it be "Nordiska riddareordnar och dekorationer" by Arvid Bergman you are thinking of? Another book that shows some of the recipients by picture is "Kungl. svenska riddareordnarna jämte konung Oscar II:s jubileums-minnestecken" by Robert Södermark 1907. Here is my so far only piece, awarded to a female:
  9. Hello! Do any of the members have close up pictures of the jubilee medal of 1897? Preferrably the norwegian variant with red enamel. I have seen two types of pattern behind the enamel, dots and a ”sunray” type of pattern. The norwegian medal was only awarded 49 times so it is strange with two different patterns.
  10. Thank you 922F for your great reply! My knowledge about the different positions in the foreign office with all it´s titles is close to non existing. I shall email the foreign ministry in Greece and hear if they have any information on my guy. I`ll keep you informed with what I find out. Thanks again!
  11. Hello! I have a document for a commander 2nd grade of the Swedish order of Wasa awarded to "chefen för det grekiska protokollet" Alexander Gregoriady on july 15 1902. His title would translate roughly to "head of the greece protocol" and I have no idea what that means. Could it be parliament or senate or something? Does anyone know something about Alexander Gregoriady? Or even have a picture of him? I suppose he got more orders than just the Swedish Wasa order.
  12. Hello! Does anybody know how many Iron Crosses that was awarded to Finnish soldiers during ww2? Is there any list of it´s recipients available?
  13. Here is a table showing the Numbers of white rose orders awarded to foreigners (non finnish) between 1919-1944. Stk med kedja = grand cross with collar Stk = grand cross K1 = commander 1st class K = commander R1 = knight 1st class R = knight tecknet i silver = award of merit sammanlagt = total since you don’t seem to have a breast star, I guess it is a commander class you have.
  14. The Hallmark 813H is often seen on finnish silver. The year stamp should be a letter followed by a number. You could try to contact the office of the order and ask if they can look in the archives for your guy. Email: info(at)ritarikunnat.fi
  15. Could it be related to music or singing? I think it looks like a music note and a singing? face...
