  1. My JNA AirForce Pilot watch: Some more pictures for future reference....
  2. ​ Dear Draza, welcome in this forum, please concentrate to the positive things that this forum can offer, nobody deserves to be attacked, even if he present his own opinion for a badge or an item. This is not the way we behave among members here, I am staying with the hope you start your membership to learn and contribute here in the near future, this is after all the Gentlemen's Military forum and hope it will stay like this as the name states. All the best for you and hope we will see you here more often, discussing other items this time
  3. This seller from Sweden has sold in the past also copies from other countries, we keep the name maro.eli as one to avoid for serious purchases. Medal is on purpose "dusty" to confuse the buyers and hide the fine details that cannot be hidden when it comes to a copy-strike. Bubbles present, bad finish on the ring.
  4. Greetings, they are Official, just they are not Military Orders but Royal Orders. As Paja said, these are the Gold, Silver and Bronze grade of Queen's Frederica National Institute. PS: I like the Pin, relative rare All well with those, with original ribbons, a fair price for all except the badge is some 150 Euros.
  5. These some very fine pieces Vladane, congrats. Can you share with us the number of the Serbian Ravna Gora Chetnik Alu badge?
  6. Hi, I will not discuss the level of the price for this certain piece, I am and always was fair with the market, frankly ,I really do not know his objective value. For such a piece,I believe someone will pay how much he wishes to have and posses such a rare badge.Up to the buyer. About the first ,initial pictures on Ebay, I think, and most of the members will agree here, were really crapy, badge didn't looked solid gold, enamel looks very very bad in all his colors ( Red,white,especially the blue enamel with as we say, pores...). Now why someone uploads such very bad pictures to se
  7. Cheers drugo, I saw the first topic, my comment was actually an Irony, an emotional expression used in my country from some 2.500 years ago. And actually my point is that from a very good original piece, someone made over there a copy, and this is not the only copy as you can see from the net all around. What is happening and what I am saying is that it's a shame, these collectibles to end up like German WWII badges and orders that are so heavy copied, that push away the collectors all around the world. Do you know how many collectors have gone away due this fact? "There are too m
  8. Very nice acquision, I like the trapezoid style of the Medal Bar. Do you know by chance the Prussian EK2 maker?
  9. They didn't "bake" the blue and white enamel well enough, they should try better next time I doubt even that this is solid 18K Gold, I am almost certain that will fail the "Golden jewelry probe" if tested. From Singapore -----> Selling one of the rarest Para trooper badges in Yu------> Give me a brake, but a BIG one
  10. By different makers, I mean also and different design for the Orders, so there are differences visually.... Makers for this Order are: Zimmerman, Souval, Huguenin, Spink, Webb, Kelaidis and some other minor Greek Jewelry makers. Orders from English makers that you ask, like Spink and Webb, was making this Order for the WWII period and some years after, where from there, Greek makers took the majority of the orders.
  11. Different makers, different periods. Here is part of my collection With Order of King George III class and Knight Cross in Gold and Silver.
  12. Hi Andrej, Looks like Russian Empire era, Church badge or something, I am not into Russian Empire items, but the eagle is that. It's cast indeed, someone of our Russian friends or Dragomir that collects Orthodox Church items, might better enlight us.
  13. One is original Paja, the other is a COPY, I am sure even Barry Turk doesn't know it.
  14. When all these people find out that almost all those pieces that Emonlab sells ,can be only for a key chain, unfortunatelly it will be very very late for them..... The bad thing is that they overlook original pieces from the other sellers for a few bucks less, up to them I will say and bad for them not being a member here for correct evaluation....
  15. I see, but I cannot say with certainty, as these are new ones and almost Non-existant on the market still, maybe different makers, we will see. Here is a clear photo from the obverse
  16. Aye,they are indeed lower quality but I do not wish to believe they are copies, maybe other makers? From the other hand, as you can see from the original website Serbian Armed Forces photo that you post, the General Stab badge of mine has the "french flowers" next to the Eagles legs, while the one you post from it doesn't, but lets keep it as an aside mark and not say they are copies.....
  17. Nice photos, thank you Paja. One "opak momak" above wears the "Serbian General Staff" Breast Badge, here is a photo from this badge, close up
  18. Ko je ta djukela sto prodaje iz Grcke, mozes mi poslati njegovo user ime Pajo?
  19. Here is how an original SDS (Nedic Adminstration Cap badge) looks like , the copies lack details at the reverse and edges at the front are not sharp, with flaws,as you can see from the photos Paja upload. So beware when you wish to purchase or bring photos here.
  20. Guys, all the above Infantry Cap badges are fakes, I am really sorry if someone from here bought one of those recently, please contact the seller(s) and demand your money back, this is really shame that happening with these beauties.
  21. This whole lot are reproductions, someone said to me that might be a variety, but I never saw such variety before, so I strongly believe that these are reproductions. They didn't end up on Ebay though, they sold localy in Serbia.Perhaps poor new owner think they are very rare....
  22. That's a COPY mate, avoid these sellers like plague please and do not get fooled, nice made but COPY, lack of sharpness and details and as our good Paja said, this is one of the well known copies that cirulate around a couple of years now. Please always bring photos of the piece you wish to purchase here for evaluation, as market became wild.....
