  1. Interesting auction going on right now. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-16744850
  2. I'm sorry for my comment, but it would be great if the mod could move all these "real or fake" threads to this section: http://gmic.co.uk/index.php?showforum=157 It's becomming really annoying to visit this forum if it's only for authentification.
  3. Pavel, thank you for your very informatived and detailed post. This was very interesting!
  4. Indeed very informative. Welcome to the forum Pavel! Do you now how many Russian made Hero orders were awarded?
  5. Nice score on this research! Congratulations on researching this nice salty Red Banner! :beer:
  6. Great information! I'll be back in Budapest in February. Will have to look at few things again. Gordon, I'll maybe need again some of your handy addresses. :rolleyes:
  7. Here is an interesting documentary in German on Schabotski that was release this week. http://mediathek.ard...content/3300510
  8. With the countdown to less than a week left for the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, maybe we could stick to this thematic. :whistle:
  9. Christophe, congratulations! Actually you found more locations than me. When I was talking about segments, I was thinking more about long pieces of wall and not small chunks left here an there in the district Berlin-Mitte. Maybe I should have been more precise, because I mostly thought about Grenzmauer sections and not Hinterland wall. The 3 I had in mind were: * Niederkirchnerstrasse. 200m section of wall * Liesenstrasse. Cemetery of Hedwig-Parish. 15m section of Grenzmauer 75. * Bernauer Strasse. Memorial site. Christophe is the winner! Thanks for adding few locations that I didn't know! :rolleyes:
  10. Hello Christian! You are right, the longest section left in Berlin-Mitte stands at Bernauer Strasse. However there are other parts left in Berlin-Mitte district which are not owned by private companies. How many other are still in place and where are they? Good luck!
  11. I totally forgot to ask a new question here. I'll formulate a very easy one in continuation with Berlin. Because it will be soon the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, please tell me: 1. How many Berlin Wall segments remain in the Berlin Mitte district? 2. Where exactly are those pieces standing today?
  12. Very nice Megan! What type of scanner do you use?
  13. Wow, what a great collection you have build up in the last years. Congratulations!
  14. I've got few "plastic ribbon bars" in my collection, but I have never had until now a "plastic medal bar". Here is my first one. I like it a lot. If anybody has a plastic medal bar for sale, I would gladly buy it. :)
  15. Humm, I don't think I really won that round with 1 question answered. However, I will try to post a question in the next 2 days. :)
  16. No idea what question #3 is, but I'll try with Schöneberg and Tiergarten. :unsure:
  17. Christophe because I like Berlin related questions, I will try to answer partially your multiple questions. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- #2 Wedding and Reinickendorf #4 Marie-Pierre Kœnig who received a Suvurov 1st Class :)
  18. Wow December 1992! That's only 1 year after the end of teh Soviet Union. That is a really late Red Star. Is it me or the enamel looks really different than on earlier awards?
  19. Maybe I shouldn't have used that term. Maybe I should have said that the drawing on your document is a nice exemple of "Socialist realism". ;)
  20. Would love to have the privilege to visit such place. Thank you Christophe for taking time to upload your pictures!
  21. Funny that the wreath is reversed on the fake Croatian prototype.
  22. Nice document with heavy propaganda connotation! I suppose these are huge document? :unsure:
