  1. Verdienstmedaille der Seeverkehrswirtschaft Instituted: 1965. Awarded: To recognize the efforts of civilian sailors in transportation on the open seas, in 3 classes (Gold, Silver and Bronze). This is the Silver Medal:
  2. Full Cavaliers of the Order of Glory - Present Day Market Realities My interest in Full Cavaliers of the Order of Glory (which extends back some 15 years) has led me to the following general observations ref the collectors market for Full Cavalier sets that has developed in the United States and Europe over this period. I offer the following as my personal observations and welcome your comments/opinions. The Hierarchy of Collectability (defined by dealers' asking prices for a Full Cavalier set ranked from most expensive to least expensive) as of 24 February 2006: 1) Order of Glory 1st, 2
  3. Hello all: As some of you may know from the WAF, I have a penchant for communist period Albanian decorations (well, I should say, I have a penchant for little explored areas of interest), so I thought for my first post on this forum I would share one of my favorite items, an Albanian six place plastic/metal ribbon bar from the 1950's. The ribbon bars used in Albania in the 1950?s were painted plastic mounted onto a substantial metal frame. Some early newsreels of Enver Hoxha visiting with communist allies such as Stalin and Bulgaria?s Georgi Dimitrov show him in the uniform of a colone
  4. Gentlemen, In a thread on the HUPR sub forum I listed three medals medals awarded to a Hungarian General that had recently been bought, through the GMIC, by Christophe. He suggested I post the medals and add some details about each one. One of the awards was a Polish Grudwald non portable medal document. At the end of that thread, seb16trs suggested we start another thread strictly about Grundwald awards. Well since I bought a new one last week lets list the ones I know about, with what little information I have on them, and perhaps we can fill in some more info on this particular award.
  5. Hi all, I've had most of these for quite a number of years, but I just got a couple of new additions... one I'm not sure about... don't know if it's a fake or a variation so would love comments on it. First off, the one I'm concerned about: First the obverse. It seems a tiny bit smaller somehow than the others I have. Also the enamel in the star does not stand out quite as well as my others do: Reverse... note the odd nut on the screwback... never seen one like this before: Closeup of the star:
  6. Here's another one of the goodies I picked up this past weekend that y'all may be interested in seeing. This is a badge for the Albanian Red Cross (Kryqi i Kuq Shqiptar or KKSH) that was made in the USSR by the Pobeda Factory in Moscow, so this dates to sometime in the 1950s. The Pobeda Factory also made the Badge commemorating the 15th Anniversary of the Peoples rmy that was awarded in 1958 (unfortunately, I do not have one of those to show). If you thought Albanian medals were hard to research, try badges. There are no references at all for them, so this is definitely "seat of the pants
  7. Known medals: - medal for 10th anniversary - medal for 40th anniversary So logically you'd expect a 20th and 30th as well... Anybody with pics - go ahead!
  8. In the efforts to make headway on our own research I would like to begin this thread to complie a database of the Hungarian Partisan Badges. There were several types and some variations. It would be great if everyone could post an image of the badges (front and back) or at least 1) if you have a badge 2) does it have a number. Designations: Type 1.1: Probably Soviet manufactured, silver, thin base, screwback style, commonly unnumbered Type 1.2: Hungarian manufactured, silver, thicker base, pinback, commonly unnumbered Type 1.3: Probably Soviet manufactured, zink, thicker base, pinback or

  16. I have very reliable information, from The Best of Sources, that by this fall, the Mongolian Phaleristic Society will be fully operational and will be open for membership applications. A certificate and membership badge (!) has been designed. Watch this space for further information!

  18. I am planning to travel to DPRK next year and tour the country. Intention is to enter via train from Beijing and exit (via train or car) directly into Russia in the north east corner. This would allow me to visit the Khasan battle site and travel onwards to Vladivostok. Has anybody visited Khasan? Is there anything to see there related to the battle? Wikipedia indicates the village has 700 people living there so I guess I shouldn't be expectinng too much Only thing I've found so far is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Khasan_Memorial.jpg
  19. Hi, One nice (my second at all) Cuban pre Castro period ribbon bar arrived today! Great looking bar, very nice devices and amazing work. Any help to analize it, would be great! All the best, Timo
  20. As this was made at the Russian mint I think it qualify to be posted in this forum. It is the first version of The Order of the Saur Revolution made for Afganistan. It's very heavy and has a look one would not expect from a suspended order. Anyone else that has Afgani awards? /Kim
  21. Greetings gentlemen, I would like to present you different types of Bravery order from my collection. First (and my personal favorite) Soviet production, Monetny Dvor, obvious signs of wear but a very nice number - 229. http://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_10_2013/post-7937-0-80030200-1380634694.jpghttp://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_10_2013/post-7937-0-11093100-1380634916.jpg
  22. Since we have a thread on American Awards to Soviets in WW2, I thought I might start a thread about the reverse. I can't go into too much detail here (it's already a 9 page article -without photos- for the JOMSA) but I thought that at least I could give some numbers and a little bit of data. There were three distinct periods of awarding Soviet awards to Americans. First, there were mid-war awards. The majority of these awards were awarded under a February 1944 Ukaz, but the actual awardings took place from April through October of 1944. The awardees in this group included officers that
  23. Will be making several posts here... first of all, a group from the National Historical Museum in Tirana. Documented as in attributed by the museum but not actually with documents included. Note: - gold order of the flag - very rare silver medal remembrance - and some other items awarded to Nako Spiru (google to follow) Have to also look into the cloth ribbon bar belonging to the group!
  24. Cuba has three militia organizations: The Territorial Militia Troops Milicias de Tropas Territoriales of about one million people (half women), the Youth Labour Army Ej?rcito Juvenil del Trabajo devoted to agricultural production, and a naval militia The Cuban "War of All the People" doctrine is a defensive strategy created to try and counter an overwhelming invasion force. This strategy includes an armed population willing to fight for the defense of the homeland. The Milicias de Tropas Territoriales (MTT) was formed in 1980 to increase the defense capability of the country. Fidel Castro st
  25. This is one of my favorite groups. It belonged to Guards Lt. Colonel Mikhail Aleksandrovich Tolkachev. Colonel Tolkachev joined the Red Army on 18 September 1938 and served until 11 December 1964. He served through WW2 and and advised the Red Chinese. He was a career tanker, though his positions during the War included service with motor rifle units. The greatest thing about this group was that he kept the photos he took at the end of the War! It sheds an interesting light on the road to victory (so to speak) at the vanguard of the 3rd Guards Tank Army, where he served as the Deputy Ch
