  1. None of the Orders or Medals on his tunic are Serbian. Could you share some of the photos of him in Serbian uniform?
  2. In my opinion its fine. Thats just most likely because its sure a early production number! So probably the first 1,000 don't look exactly the same as the higher number ones. Thats the best explanation I can give. Look at what an even earlier number looks like (this is the lowest one Ive ever come across), this one is under 50...

  3. It's original but they were not made during WW2, rather post war (45 - 46) in Chetnik camps in Italy.
  4. The "II" was stamped after they were made in Eboli, Italy (1945 - 47), this was done by members of the post war Chetnik Association of Royal Yugoslav Combatants 'Draza Mihailovich" (Udruzenje Boraca Kraljevinske Jugoslovenske Vojeske 'Draza Mihailovic'). The "II" can be seen at the bottom of the Cyrillic "П" in their symbol of the Ravnogorski Znak (Ravna Gora Badge), which they adopted in emigration, with the addition of a wreath. This "II" stamped Cyrillic variation of the badge is usually seen with a high serial number on the revers of the badge, and is more uncommon than the normal Cyrillic
  5. Hard to say, the detail/patina is good on the front of the badge and the back looks about right. The only thing is the serial number, it's faint and not as strong as it should be. No concerns with the bolts on the back, as there were variations made with a nut and bolt attachment. In my opinion it's most likely an original piece, with the nuts missing from the back.
  6. I'm not 100% sure if it is authentic or not, because allot of these 'war casting' kokarde and badges have been popping up recently, and its very suspicious because its not that hard to fake. Here are some similar examples, of which I am also unsure of their authenticity.

  8. Hey Valjevo, it's most likely just a wartime customization of the badge as some Chetniks didn't believe in the 'Kingdom of Yugoslavia' ideology but rather just as Orthodox Serbs. This is the best reason I can give for the King Peter Karađorđević 2 kokarda having Serbian flag colours instead of Yugoslav flag colours. This is also easy to do as the monarch initials are just attached by tabs which hold them in place, therefor they can be easily be manipulated and removed form the kokarda. This is why you sometimes see these kokarde in good condition (not damaged), but missing the initial for the
  9. Standard Cyrillic “П” variation (number 005810), on German War Booty Archive. http://www.germanwarbooty.com/item-medals01/medals m5410.htm Standard Cyrillic “П” variation (number 002343), sold on The Saleroom. https://www.the-saleroom.com/en-gb/auction-catalogues/andrew-smith-and-son/catalogue-id-srandr10029/lot-cf20987e-ee26-4211-b656-a45a01222ceb Standard Cyrillic “П” variation (number unknown), belonging to Major Milan Cvjetičanin (1915-1963). The photo in Eboli camp shows, from left to right: Milivoje Vuksanovich, Jovo Keca, Tadija Metlicich, Stevo Radjenov
  10. The Ravnogorski Znak (Ravna Gora Badge) was made in Eboli, Italy of an aluminum alloy and was awarded to members of the Yugoslav Army in the Homeland (JVuO), starting at the end of 1945 until the end of 1946. A smaller version was also made and had a pin attached to the back (theses were not numbered on the back). These full-size badges were given to JVuO members who were then in Allied camps in Italy (Eboli) and Germany (Munster), but not to civilians. The triangular design, with an upright sword through the center, a human skull just above the hand guard, and palm and olive branches cro
  11. An infantry (red) embroidered braid badge for NCO's ( Non-commissioned officers), caps/shajkache, very rare and this is the only one I have every seen. Not sure what the sticker on the back is for, maybe someone could shed some light.
  12. Major Milan Cvjetičanin's (1915-1963) original embroidered braid badges from the war. Embroidered braid badges were also used for the navy, air force and firemen, and they would be used as makeshift Chetnik badges during the war. Navy Air force
