  1. Great find, these are scarce, especially in sterling silver.
  2. They probably got him one of tompac copies that we frequently see for sale. Still, very nice gesture!!! Long live the Hero!
  3. I see they fake low classes now...I hope they sell them as low priced souvenirs
  4. There are legitimate stars without maker name on center backplate. You have to look at the entire package to determine if they are real or not.
  5. OMG! This is 1st class star and cross in original cases of issue, exceptionally rare!!!
  6. Agreed, this star looks suspect, details are lacking.
  7. Correct, about 3 times higher. Also, enamel they use most likely is not real enamel, so it's not that expensive. From the photos it looks like paint was used, especially on reverse.
  8. Fake Ferdinand Election medal 1st class (on the left). This is a converted 3rd class medal (in the middle) with enamel applied to the center elements. Authentic medal is on the right, you can clearly see distinct features of 1st class (rays under red enamel, details in center on reverse, etc.).
  9. Dmitriy Yazov, last living bearer of highest military rank Marshal of The Soviet Union died today. RIP Feb-8, 2024 to Feb-25, 2020 He was Minister of Defense 1987-1991. Member of failed coup of August 1991 to save Soviet Union. Highly decorated: Soviet Union Order of Lenin, twice Order of the October Revolution Order of the Red Banner Order of the Patriotic War, 1st class Order of the Red Star Order for Service to the Homeland in the Armed Forces of the USSR, 3rd class Medal "For Military Merit" Medal "For Impeccable Service"
  10. Perhaps one of the reason is that Grand Cross star does not really look like Bravery award, as there is no white cross for what it is known to most of people. It looks more like a foreign award than Bravery. Badge of 1st class on the other hand can be clearly seen from a distance and in the photographs. Probably Bulgarian Tsars wanted to make sure there's no confusion and everyone who sees them with the cross with skulls knows what they are wearing?
  11. it's a rare badge, not many people here seen it, not sure you will get any opinions here.
  12. I am speechless!!! Where are these awards located, which museum?
