  1. For my next project I'm labeling every medal in all of my displays. Some displays are done already. After That I hope to be able to Mount all five classes of the PRL era of Poland's Order of Virtuti Militari. Doc
  2. Thanks for the information. I'll have to change the title on this display of his picture and the medals. Doc
  3. Does anybody recognize this Bulgarian? There is no name on the back of the photo. Also, What is this badge. Doc Chev. Michael Riley, GCBE, GCOBE, KCRCC & Etc.
  4. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- After much soul searching I finally decided on a way to mount the medals as seen in the portrait of Saddam Hussein. I made sure that NO damage was done to the medals. I just put the display together. Above the Medal Bar is the Portrait of Saddam wearing the medal bar. Next to it is a bag containing pieces of the bunker under his main Palace in Baghdad. This was a long project as I could only afford one or two at a time. The Wisam al-Jadara, 1st Class (the first medal) took me two months to get. I hope that you enjoy the display as much as I did making it. Doc Chev. Michael Riley, GCBE, GCOBE, KCRCC & Etc.
  5. Here's a Captain of the Medical Service Daily Uniform. I have learned that while it may look ordinary at first glance, there are some interesting details. First, the cloth used in the set is much better than usually, second, the insignia is from the 1950s or 1960s rather than the 1980s - and finally, and most exciting IMHO - the graduation badge is a multi-piece Leningradskij Monetnij Dvor hallmarked medical school badge with hot red enamel. The captain may have been an Afghanistan war serving officer, the ribbon bar holds both Order of Red Star and Order for Service to Motherland. Doc There are a couple more pics...

  14. That's even better!!! Thanks for helping my DDR medal education. Doc
  15. What is this name of a medal? NVA-Waffenbrüder Stufe 2-Vorderseite Randlos Doc
  16. I have made the replica of Saddam's Medal Bar using straight pins, except on the Jadara. It came with the U-Shaped attachment pin. This still needs a little tweaking to get it the way it should be. I will cover the tops of the medals and pins with either felt or red ribbon. I've decided not to use a mounting bar so the Jadara can go back in its leather award case when necessary. I have the plans for the Medal Mounting Bar from Chris...Thanks Chris!!! I will get it made and use it for other sets I have. Doc
  17. I'll have to re-scan th obverse. Here's the REVERSE... Doc
  18. The last piece for the replica of Saddam's Medal Bar has arrived. It's the Wisam-al Jadara, 1st class. I've decided not to mount it on the medal bar but place it next to the medal bar. OBVERSE Doc
