  1. Here you can see, how Order of Jamaica is worn (badge of the Order hung around the neck, from a plain green ribbon, with the Sash worn over the right shoulder ). On 1st photo : Charles DuFour Regards to all. Emmanuel
  2. Hello Gentlemen, Hello Rusty, This is what looks like an Order of Jamaica. The badge of the Order is worn from a plain green neck ribbon, and a sash is worn over the shoulder, but unlike the european Order, there is no hook to hold the sash badge on the sash. As the Sash of the Order is just one of the accessory of the award ( It being the Badge, the Sash, the Neck Ribbon, the Miniature ). Only for "display purpose", I choosed to present a photo, with the badge of the Order, as it would be look, if hung from the sash. But NEVER in any Jamaica award ceremony you will see a
  3. Hello Gentlemen, Quality for this award is not that bad. It's ELM from Singapore which manufacture them. Watch 3rd photo (reverse of pin device). Regards to all. Emmanuel

    On his 3rd row of medals (at left hand side). My opinion, is that General Kangnaja is wearing the Zambia Police Distinguished Service Medal. It's the current type of Police Medal, as I can states that some of the Police Medal exist at least in 4 Type Type 1 used during the Kenneth Kaunda era Type 2 used thereafter Type 3 (planchet very similar to type 4), but with swiveling suspension. And a few were for sale around 2007-2008 Type 4 which only appears this year. Regards to all. Emmanuel

    Hello Ilja, Hello Gentlemen, At least we now know what is the 1st row medal (losange shaped) that General Kangnaja is wearing. Zambia Police Medal of Merit of the Deputy Inspector General. Regards to all. Emmanuel
  6. Hello Dug, Miniature are almost always "private manufacture". it is useless to try to make sense of anything you see in the world (not only medals). Because sometimes, items have been designed such as this..... The Medal for Wounds of Kingdom of Morocco is a circular medal (in its full size), and sole manufacturer is Arthus Bertrand from Paris => why then Arthus Bertrand did manufacture the miniature of this medal, as a rectangular one....? I asked them about 20 years ago, ....nobody knew..........And again if the ribbon of my full size Wound Medal looks a bit "odd", it's because
  7. Hello Gentlemen, Hello Dug, The miniature you posted, is actually Rhodesia Legion of Merit, it's the Order of the Rhodesia Republic from 1970 to 1980. But actually the Zimbabwe bird shall face to the left. This is how shall looks like a real one, full size. Very few were actually issued. Sadly this one, is not part of my collection ( Photo 1 & 2 ). The 3rd photo is the Commander Breast Star of the Rhodesian Legion of Merit from my collection. Despite these (3rd photo ) have never flooded the market, I have been said that it's actually a "SPECIMEN ISSUE" , using s

  9. Hello Gentlemen, Here is some photo of the Fiji 50th Anniversary of Independence Medal in their case of issue. Regards to all. Emmanuel
  10. Hello Gentlemen, Can you post a photo ? Regards. Emmanuel
  11. Hello Goga Palkin,

    My name is Emmanuel, from GMIC.

    I collect modern african countries medals for about 25 years.

    Just a question, the Burkina Faso Medal of Local Collectivity, might you think about to sell it ? Or barter it ?

      Hello Goga Palkin,

      Thank for your reply.

      I had to try. Anyway, nice photo.



  12. Hello Tony, Ounce this amazing group was sold on ebay. With a rare Solomon Islands Police LSGC Medal. I would have spotted it, and bought it, whatever the price, but the autralian ebay seller, was listing it on ebay as Solomon Isl Medals (with a S), so in my every 3 days random research, I use medal...not medals, so my laptop didn't catch it. But aussie are like that, they don't really care. The ribbon of the Police LSGC is the exact opposite of the Police MSM. The Police MSM, I had 3 over the years that have pass through my hands (and I kept 1), but Police LSGC never....
  13. Hello Dave, France, no. I do not have currently the possibility to scan this issue of the Medal Collector, to illustrate my words, but maybe others members have access to it. The, thereafter mentioned Luxembourg War Cross, who seems 99 % to be actually a French WWII War Cross on a Luxembourg ribbon, does NOT implicate a french manufacture. Bacqueville of Paris can sell the ribbon, but that's it. I add 2 screen capture of the medal bar, worn by Grand Duke John of Luxembourg 1921-2019, who was holder of the WWII War Cross of Luxembourg, the Belgium WWII War Cross, the France WWII
  14. To all devoted to the cause of knowledge, here are the Papua New Guinea Medal from before 2005. Most of them actually were absolete by 1975, with exception of Papua New Guinea Community Service Medal Papua New Guinea Police LSGC Medal Papua New Guinea Civil Service LSGC Medal (bought from an auction house, but had no time to properly re-scan). I still miss the Papua New Guinea Armed Forces LSGC Medal (similar as the 2 others but the ribbon is made of red & white stripes). I would like to get the opportunity to STATE that restrike exist of these LSGC medals (the sh
  15. I have to add, that this version also exist. It is clearly NOT an official version of the Luxembourg War Cross, but according to its manufacture, it make sense to think that this one, was manufactured in Belgium (maybe at private request of some Belgian Veterans.....or collectors). I had seen only 2 such crosses in collection in all my life, and mine came from a London dealer where I purchased it for 50 GBP about 2012-2014. It is larger than the normal Luxembourg War Cross (which was manufactured by Spink), and this type of cross is the one illustrated as Luxembourg War Cross in the book
