  1. Many thanks Chechaco1 I appreciate your reply and help. All the best Martyn
  2. Hi I know that this is very post war but is it possible to date it approximately? I'm thinking that it is probably 1960 - 1980s
  3. I'm still interested in these two. I'm wandering if these may be original contemporary issue items. I've previously posted these in this topic but wandered if anyone else has seen these exact types. They're aluminium and obviously come from the same factory... I'm guessing Ukraine. The interesting thing is the reverse designs are different to the obverse. The reverse of the Ukraine Sea Guard has the impression of a Russian Sea Guard badge of the same period. So is this a company making both the Ukrainian and Russian Sea Guard badges under contract but cutting costs by using one reverse die to form the badge shape or is it just a cheaply produced later copy? The other Russian sub badge has a surface ship reverse die. Could these still be correct or are these definitely modern restrikes?
  4. If ever you have any that you want to get rid of I would be interested.
  5. I've seen some Russian medals which are very expensive and didn't like the look of them
  6. These badges seem to be a bit of a mine field
  7. So does this badge that I posted look like a good un?
  8. One more that I've dug out. Was wandering if this is a repair or another dodgy one. It just seems too obvious to be a copy with that soldered pin and heard that some were made on base or is this just a myth.
  9. A copy in other other words of a type that doesn't officially exist 😁
  10. Thanks once again. This next one I think is a copy? Our is it just a modern cheaply made issue?
  11. Original issue? So would this be a genuine issue or just another collector's copy? What do you think?
  12. One more. Not sure. What do you think. It looks similar to one of yours.
  13. This navy excellence award also looks good to me. Many thanks 👍
  14. Many thanks for all of your help. I'm going to keep looking for these but look for the age and pin type as above. I will sell the others as new.
  15. Many thanks. So the others are probably new but could they still be ok? This one I'm fairly sure it's good.
