  1. Very similar one was sold in 2013. https://www.bukowskis.com/sv/lots/412330-miekka-1700-luku-merkitty-srie80?from_language=fi
  2. I just got this The Most Exalted Order of the White Elephant miniature medal. It is not often i seen a miniature medal from Thailand. so i wanted to share it with you all. The size are 21mm. I could not find any makers mark on it.
  3. Im not able to see the picture
  4. Hello Archer This is really a Thai puzzle. A thai friend tryed to explain this to me but he didnt really have a good explination for it. As i understand it is that Thai people can wear these Commemorative Medals as they wish. But i thought that they hade to be born during the Commemorative Medal was given out. Se attached Picture. I Think this is a very interesting topic and i will look more into it.
  5. This was sold in a auction in Sweden not long ago. See link https://prob.auction2000.se/auk/w.object?inC=PROB&inA=20200104_1146&inO=341
  6. Its common in Sweden. The Swedish regualtions say that you wear Swedish orders/medals first then the nordic countries then other countries, names in french, and last international medals, such as UN, NATO etc. The last medal on the bar are in the wrong Place. I Think it was awarded after he mounted the medals and didnt want to ree do it all, so he just put it last.
  7. This old versions of the order of the white elephant are before 1909. The order of the elephant and the order of the crown was changed in 1909. order of the white elephant 1909.pdforder of the crown 1909.pdf
  8. The government in Sweden has started an investigation to reintroduce so that Swedish citizens can again be awarded the Swedish orders. As well as resurrecting the dormant orders. So we will see what happens.
  9. Thats great. I think the swedish orders are one of the most beautiful orders. Maybe because im swedish
  10. Both orders have the same number of classes, 5. The order of vasa is an open order. So anyone, almost, could get it for almost anything . The order of the northen star was given for Civil- and scientific- merits. So for example embassy staff are given the nothern star. Thats is why i think there are more asians who got awarded the Northen star because there was not so many asians before 1975 in Sweden eccept embassy staff.
  11. Hi Dave I think its typical for old ribbons that the color fade. Very nice to see miniatyre medal. Not often i see Thai miniaryr medals. BR Micke
  12. I haven seen two diffrent ribbons to this medal, if its the same medal. I think it is. I seen one medal with white ribbon and one with blue ribbon. Which is the right ribbon? Blue or white? I think the blue are the right one and that the other medal's ribbon has become sun-bleached, but im not 100% sure.
  13. Well... For me it look little strange. Specially if you look on the thread on which the ribbons are sewn with on the reverse side. Most often when you make a mounting it is the same color on the thread on the back. Here you have diffrent threads on almost all medals. And it's not made very professional.
  14. Yes i have connection with SFF. Im the secretary of the Association ... We will have the yearly meeting with all members in mars. I will bring it up before that with the Board.
  15. Discussions are conducted between the owners of the page and Svenska Faleristika Föreningen, SFF. "Swedish Phaleristic Association" The SFF have just started there association and dosent have the funds right now to run the page. Hopefully the page will come up as soon as possible.
