  1. Thank you for your help, it's always of values when teher are too few books about the subject. Indeed, the W. Stella's highly valuable books don't always help to raise doubts about coining details when comparing genuine and fake pieces...
  2. Hello, never too late for educating! Thank you for yours comments. I look forward to seeing any new quality books about polish medals - which will complete the W. Stella 's work)
  3. Well, general engraving seems poor, and the dark patina is here to hide the defects...
  4. Hello gentlemen, what puzzles me is the fact that orders documents are never visible... howt they do look like?
  5. Hello Eric, thanks for your comment. I tend to believe most stars (except the last one of course) I've shown are genuine. Please remark that they belong to a common run numbered between 25000 and 29000. A bunch a unissued stars, logically. The small group shown by Drugo present a poor finish and a kind of crude enamel (?) or painting...
  6. Hello, this is anice piece. Diplomas about this order are rare. But one question: in 1983 did this order come with both big diploma (na dthe wax state seal) and the small DIN A5 certificate? What was the rule?
  7. Hello, here is a rough study of what is proposed on "E", only about the 3rd class stars. The 2nd should deserve a separate study? I strongly believe we are in front of unissued orders that have been driven on the private market. They all come from knwon dealers, here EmonXXXX from Slovenia Now NatXXX from Serbia: Now KragXXX from Serbia: one of the riffles shows a heavy casting defect, but the obervese is perfectly finished. At the soviet or czech mint, such a defect would have led the medal to melting oven. But I tend to believe Ikom products were less well finished Now a fake which can't hide its identity:
  8. Hello Philip, thank you for your opinion. Yes I'm concerned too, the prices are low, and I saw some defects even on 3rd class stars. I saw basic fakes now proposed. I am concerned about some casting defects, but you're perfectly right about enamels, the deep cherry/blood red enamel is a difficult point to counterfeit.
  9. Hello, should we conclude with certainty that it is a fake?
  10. This is impresive, saddly all documents have been lost?
  11. Hello Igor, I'm sorry I don't; I only specialize in post-1944 communist period...
  12. Hello, this is a really nice group, with I suppose a huge affective signification... Let me ask you a few questions please: -What is the link between the small certificate ("uverenje") and the big dilpoma? Were they both decerned to the recipient (as it is done in Hungay or CSSR) -I never saw any document about the commemorative medal (10, 20 and 30 years of JNA), do they exist? Thank you for your insight!
  13. These are extremly beautifull pieces! As I'm specialized in comunist stuf, I specially apreciate the hungarian national merit star...
  14. These are not pieces for average collectors, with a minimum market price of 1500-2000 euros...
