  1. >>Thank you so much. Do you know how old YOUR pin is? Nope - that's what I mean I don't know how much that can mean to you ;-) >>Also, in your estimate, what is the value of such a pin? The one at SOS was I think priced around $50 or $80 or so - I don't remember it getting sold. However, there is not much of a market for these kinds of things, so prices would not normally be high, unless there was special interest. I collect obscure Thai pins and stuff, so if I had observed the pin mechanism different like that, I might have picked it up for that to have a different example.

  2. Hi Linas, This is some kind of Thai Navy pin. I've an example also, but not with as nice a pin as yours. I'd guess yours is a little older than mine (what ever that means to you ;-) There are many different kinds of such military and civil pins. Maybe one day I'll add a section for these on my website ... (And so I'll also have incentive to better identify them.) This example is not very common. My wife has only seen this one, and she picked it up for me. I've seen another in Thailand. There was also one at the last SOS show.

  3. I have been told that this type was manufactured by Bacuqeville at least in the early 70's. There are many variations from different manufacturers, different sizes, different constructions, different materials. There are also current manufactured versions, both from Thailand and also I suspect in Vietnam another type of copy.
  4. For some fakes, take a look at the auctions of mcstls - see for example ebay auction 220511512238. Sometimes he also has them made up with red ribbons - also fakes not originals with a swapped ribbon. These UN medals by mcstls are fakes meant to deceive collectors and sold as such - they are not "new versions" for qualified recipients or whatever. The WW1 Interallied victory medals by mcstls are also fakes. Rgds, Dave
  5. These are commonly sold on ebay by mcstls, but beware they are copies (as is the other junk he sells) - see for example lot 220511512238
  6. This is a common fake available in Bangkok for between $5-$50. Sometimes it comes with an "aged" brown or red case. It is part of a series of "Monnaie de Paris" marked fakes of old Thai medals.
