  1. Hello all I have some fourrageres with fancy ferrets, rather than the plain one. Are these prescribed by certain regiments or strictly at the discretion of the receipient, or possibly for officers? Also, what is the significance of the (usually) 2 single strands? Thank you in advance for any information, Jerry
  2. Is there any way for a Russian not to win any medals? This is getting just too ridiculous.
  3. Thank you for the info. I eagerly anticipate a new and updated site.
  4. What happened to Hendrik's Medal Corner site? I found it to be an invaluable source of information and miss it greatly.
  5. I have been bitten by the Croix de Guerre collecting bug. Here is my first haul; I expect there will be more. I don't know what it is about this particular medal. Maybe its simplicity, its history, its reputation. Whatever it is, I'll be scouring flea markets and military shows and even Ebay for more. (I really need a cheaper hobby)
  6. Thank you both for your answers. To buy or not to buy, that is the question.........(with apologies to the Bard) Jerry
  7. I am familiar with the London version as having no date- have one in my collection. But the one I am referring to is totally plain, flat. See listing http://www.ebay.com/itm/142221603043?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Jerry
  8. I have seen advertised on Ebay a WW2 CdG with a blank, completely plain reverse. Is this anything official, or even semi-official? I cannot any other reference to such a model. Thanks for any possible information Jerry
  9. This medal is Belgian, not Dutch. It is the medal of the order of Leopold II. It should have a blue ribbon with a black center stripe. Yours has the ribbon of the British War Medal (WW I)
  10. A NATO medals is then not considered a foreign medal?
  11. My Question has nothing to do with the actual mounting, however, I am rather confused about the order the medals are mounted. It seems to be somewhat random. A NATO medal in first place in the second bar, and last in the 3rd bar. Surely, they cannot both be correct.
  12. The flag on the medal, and presumably the issuing agent, is the "Northern Army", one of the many armed "liberation" movements in Chad. http://www.crwflags.com/fotw/flags/td_armov.html Regards, Jerry
  13. Hello, I recently picked NJ National Guard medal. I cannot find any details anywhere. Does anyone here have any idea what it might be? The text reads: Winfield S Emmonds Guard (above) Elizabeth, NJ (below) The medal is silver with plain reverse. It cost me a staggering $5.00, so if it is worthless, it would be no big deal. Thanks, Jerry
  14. I know that nobody has responded to this post in over 6 years. I have gone through -and mostly read- over 2000 post of this forum alone and another 4600 if the Imperial German forum and come to the conclusion that our hobby has become a minefield. I started to collect in the early '80s but stopped because of financial constraints. I started again about 1 year ago and found the entire landscape changed almost beyond recognition. It appears that the internet, which did not exist 30 years ago has made a tremendous impact, both positive and negative. On the plus side, we can now communicate w
