  1. Hi, even though I do not collect the Ottoman Empire, do daggers and bayonets Italian. But sometimes good things do not buy our I would like to know your opinion on an order Osmanie, I think product out from Turkey and I think is good. Sadly, there is behind the plate, but it is always a great decoration. You can also give me an average? many thanks Itaca
  2. Dear colleagues, I was shown this Imtiyaz medal and belive it is a cast-copy. But I would prefer a second opinon by more expert collectors in that field.
  3. Hello Gents, I got this photo dedicated to an german sailor. Is it an turkish sailer and is it possble to read which ship ?
  4. Merhaba! I go on vacation to Ankara and Cappadokia these days, are there any antique stores (turkish militaria) or any other interesting places related to military history in Ankara? Thank you in advance. Tesekkurler!
  5. Hi, If you are interested in the TWM and the Ottoman Medals, uniforms, history you can check these pages, they are all in Turkish but we can always translate, if you ask. Ottoman medals, uniforms etc: https://www.facebook...nlimadalyalari/ TWM: https://www.facebook.../harpmadalyasi/ Korean war: https://www.facebook.../koremadalyasi/ https://www.facebook...ups/koresavasi/ Ottoman Military History: https://www.facebook...20944871281282/ Regards Demir
  6. Hi All, bought this picture from Turkey, and would like to know more about the uniforms please?? Cheers, Alex Schmidt
  7. Dear Avsar, I assume we are looking at a donanma iane which is 25 mm Nickel version and it is 8.5 gr hasan
  8. I was lucky to aquire this group some time ago, I have always wondered about the 'supposed brass dogtag' is it a dog tag or something else and what is written on it? The group was a New Zealand WW1 veteran bringback. Enjoy the images and please help re the dogtag query. Thanks in advance.
  9. I was looking for info on this officer on the Austro-Hungarian officer in this painting (by Robert Fuchs - im Felde 1917) In the Austro Hungarian part of the forum it was suggested that the ribbon below the EK2 ribbon might be of the Turkish War Medal. I just checked in Mr Demir Ermans book on the War Medal and it indeed looks the case. Maybe someone here can confirm or has more info on who this officer might be? And the original posting on the Austro Hungarian forum http://gmic.co.uk/index.php/topic/54803-officer-unidentified-portrait-by-robert-fuchs-kriegsmaler/
  10. Hello, Here is another TWM copy which has "legally protected/registered" Ges.Gesch" (gesetzlich geschützt) sign on the pin. Why or from what it is protected from or registered to whom? Interesting! Demir
  11. Does someone have infos about turkish collar badges? I am also looking for a book about turkish uniforms during wwI. Please have a look at the photo. Are the collar signs old-arabic numbers?
  12. It has always been generally medals, but I thought learning the Officer Rank Insignia used in the Turkish Army starting from 1909 may be interesting to some of our friends. With the permission of the writer Teacher-Instructor Colonel Türker GEÇER, I edited his article which he published in the Military Journal. (Silahli; Kuvvetler Dergisi (Journal of the Turkish Armed Forces) Ocak (January) 2012, ANKARA,TURKEY, Sayi; (Issue No): 411, Pages 68-85) I will post this edited article in several threads because of the picture limitation) I also will post this to "files" in GMIC.

(Picture 15)
  13. Considering the growth of interest in the Turkish War Medal see below - and in the following post - a couple of European manufactured (?) items that may be of interest to collectors in their ongoing research into the different variants of these variant medals. I believe that both the examples shown are either German or Austrian manufactured items, and may be of interest view the quality, markings and construction styles of these medals The first TWM illustrated has no makers mark on the reverse. It does however have the number '950' stamped on the lower base immediately above the retention clasp for the vertical pin. Curiously the obverse 'Iron Crescent' is not applied to the plate but appears to a fixed part of the plate / planchet, as I can see no rim or seal around the rim of the crescent. As such the rivets on the back plate are only there to secure the central applied obverse devices. I woudl be interested to know if anyone can positively ID the maker. As information. Mark

  15. Gentleman, I wanted to make sure members of this forum have the opportunity to participate in the auction for a cased set of gold and silver Imtiyaz medals. If you have any questions please ask away either here or on the ebay listing at http://www.ebay.com/...984.m1555.l2649.
  16. I have seen a copy of a photo containing a large group of Turkish officers of the Turkish Contingent dating from 1855-56. One of the Turkish officers is wearing very light coloured (probably white) trousers with a wide dark stripe running down the outside of the leg. All of the other Turkish officers have dark coloured trousers with a stripe. The officer with the white trousers is wearing a fez and has fringed epaulettes on both shoulders of his jacket. He is one of only two officers seated on a chair in the group and he is in the front row which suggests to me that he holds a senior rank. The other seated officer is British. Does anyone know which Turkish officer ranks in the Turkish Contingent wore white trousers as part of their uniform? Paul
  17. Wanted to see if any of you guys can help me identify the 4 berats pictured below. I think 2 of them are Osmonie orders and the other 2 are Medjidie orders but I can't be certain with my poor understanding of Ottoman Script. Any help is greatly appreciated. http://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_09_2012/post-10420-0-78284200-1347265043.jpghttp://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_09_2012/post-10420-0-03971700-1347265105.jpghttp://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_09_2012/post-10420-0-79121200-1347265117.jpghttp://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_09_2012/post-10420-0-95895400-1347265249.jpg
  18. Dr Thomas Coutts Morison MRCSE LSA JP, son of Sir Alexander Morison, volunteered to serve as a civilian Staff-Surgeon during the Crimean War. He died unmarried in 1863 in Rockhampton in the Colony of Queensland (Australia), and apparently among his possessions when he died was a Crimean War period Order of the Medjidie. I'm looking for some information on this from the people that really know the Medjidie. Morison’s insignia is a silver star comprising seven triple quills with seven small crescents and five-pointed stars between them, the whole measuring 43 mm in diameter (one of the tips has been broken off). Is there any way to distinguish a 4th Class insignia from a 5th Class, just from the star? My impression is that the star is genuine, but there is no entry in the London Gazette because Morison was attached to one of the foreign legions, not the Turkish Contingent. It was probably a field award. Alternately, Morison acquired such a medal and had it engraved as a souvenir of his service.... The gold central disc bears the Sultan’s tughra, the Royal Cipher of the Ottoman Sultan Abdülmecid I, after whom the Order is named. Around this is a gold-bordered circle of red enamel bearing the words in Arabic script for “Devotion”, “Loyalty” and “Truth” and the Islamic year 1268 AH (1852) on four red enamel plaques. There is a suspension loop present, fitted at the rear, but the entire central disc is out of position by 90º clockwise. Is this unusual, or likely to be a fault in the assembly of the original medal? This insignia lacks the typical suspension (a red-enamelled crescent and star suspender with green enamelled edges); this has been removed and the star instead has a horizontal brooch mount on the reverse. The reverse bears a fitted concave silver disc which is engraved to: “Thomas Coutts Morison Staff Surgeon P.M.O. Sultan’s Cossacks”, which I think reflects the writing style of the day. Any comments or feedback from the experts in the field would be greatly appreciated. Paul
  19. If you want to sell, please contact. thank you
  20. This is currently available on ebay from Australia (Elite militaria) for around USD 695. As someone who is still learning about these orders, the item would appear to raise some concerns for an "1860 Crimea War Grand Cross": (1) star and crescents placed on top the tallest rays, as opposed to between them (2) centre appears to be a lighter shade of red, as opposed to a deep dark red (3) rear - appears to be a single cast piece as opposed to separate "leaves" joined together (4) very "shiny" for a 150 year old item. Would I be correct? Are there any other details of this particular item that also jump out as concerns? I am keen to develop my knowledge on what are a very beautiful category of orders.
  21. Hello, I have received these beautiful medals, handed down to me from my uncle in England. He was unsure as to their history but believed them to be from late 1890's. I have been doing some family reseach and have discovered that a relative who i have a DSO from and other sudan war medals was also recognised for a 3rd class Medjidie (gazette 19/4/1901) and 3rd class Osmanie (gazette 26/9/1902). I am presuming that these are most likely his medals. Would anyone be able to help identfying these medals and assiting me to date them?? Thank you very much for any help you can offer. http://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_04_2012/post-13782-0-55238000-1335584860.jpghttp://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_04_2012/post-13782-0-29726000-1335584869.jpghttp://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_04_2012/post-13782-0-34868900-1335584875.jpghttp://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_04_2012/post-13782-0-71698000-1335584884.jpghttp://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_04_2012/post-13782-0-93617300-1335584913.jpg
  22. Hi to all, I find those pieces some days ago here in Albania. I think those are military hat badges of the Tanzimat era, maybe 1840-1860. They have a D = 42 mm. Can anyone help me to identify them? Regards, A.
  23. Hello, I hope that I am posting in the right area but I was given these insignia and I was told that they are from the 1960s and 1970s. I know that they are Turkish but would anyone happen to know what they are for? Also, I have the patch to right in two sizes, but why would they come in two different sizes?

    medals help

    Dear Friends, Please be aware of medals sold by certain sellers in the known website. "dursen51" then " cinare2006 " from Germany is selling mainly Akka (d'acre) medal and a medallion of german,austria and ottoman rulers Now " moys-10 " from Germany is selling the same medals. I believe they are all same. Also in these days "abilge" is selling some Osmanie's from Australia, he also sells through Belgium. He also sells Mecidie orders but they are easy to understand becaus of the position of the stars on top the layer. 330345390999 330345593738 330345592667 330345596310 (imagine a red Osmanie) Best wishes
  25. Hello gents Thinking about adding this one to the collection. Looks like a good private-issue TWM to me but as I've never handled one I'd like your thoughts about it just to make sure. Thank you very much for the help! cheers from Flanders l4h PS: enamel looks fades but that's just the lightreflection
