  2. Here are images of some rare orders conferred to King Ferdinand and Queen Maria of Romania. Order of Elizabeth (Austria) Attributed to Queen Maria

  4. Hello everyone. I am both a collector and eBay seller. I just bought a medal from an auction in Europe. It is supposedly and exceptionally Rare Romania King Carol II In Exile Cross Of Honor For Merit Breast Star + Crown. Please see photo. Below is what the description stated: "2nd Class with Crown (for Special Awards) by "Da Costa, Lisboa". Breast Star, 58x47 mm, gilt Metal, medallion and crown on the top enameled, thin pin on reverse. Very rare order and interesting special design for exceptional merits, of the period of exile of King Carol II! Extremely fine condition. I RR! " I am interested in any information about this Cross that you may have. Thank you. Linas PS: I don't have a photo of the reverse.
  5. It has the date 1 Martie and Aerochim on it. I presume it was given to a workers union. Nothing special about the reverse so I've decided not to post it.
  6. Hi all, Picked up these 2 ribbon bars recently. Although I'm not familiar with Romanian ribbon bars they look good to me. Any thoughts on these? Also, the first one with the single row looks to be the little brother of the medal bar in this topic (see post #84): http://gmic.co.uk/in... museum__st__80 Could these belong together? Regards, Peter
  7. I had a huge dilema this past week, I purchased a Queen Marie Cross (order, medal?) 1st class for my friend along with some things for me , when it arrived he didn't like it as much as when he saw it online. So I could either return it, or keep it, so I decided to keep it, here are some pictures, I love Orange, and when I saw the ribbon I couldn't send it back at least it'll be loved here at my home! It came with the case of issue any help on year/material/ any information about it is appreciated since I have 0 knowledge on Romanian awards. It appears to be silver gilt, I've seen some IInd and IIIrd class ones in bronze.
  8. To the gentlemen Tonight I would like to post some pictures and information with regards a Post WW1 Royal Romanian award: THE COMMEMORATIVE CROSS OF THE 1916 - 18 WAR. The cross itself had been established through a Royal Decree, number 1744 of the 8 July 1918 and was awarded to civilians and military personnel that participated to WWI. Designer: (for the moment unknown.) The cross was of a Byzantine cross design with the cypher of King Ferdinand on the obverse and the years 1916-1918 on the reverse. The cross measures 40 mm by 43,5 mm (including the ribbon ring mount). There are variations in the cross caused by contracts to different manufacturers, also there is a cross which appears to be in gilt and I am told this was for officers, leaving the more darker coloured crosses for the other ranks. The ribbon is with 4 dark blue stripes interspaced with 3 green stripes, variations in the ribbon can be seen, but are normaly caused by exposure to light, age, and wear, some home made replacements have also been encountered, as there is nobody making replacement ribbon of the quality, size and style of the WW1 & WW2 awards. Miniture versions also exsist for the 1916 - 1918 and the 1916 - 1919 Crosses. The participants to the 1919 campaign* received a different version of the cross that had the years 1916-1919 on the reverse, but the front was identical to the 1916- 1918 Cross. Battle-Bars for the Commemorative Cross of the 1916 - 1918 War; Participation in a number of Battles was commemorated by the addition of a bar or number of bars to the Cross, the bar or bars were accompanied by a Brevet or certificate of entitlement. 1916. 1918, 1919, and 1 9 1 9 (note the spacing of the numbers.) ARDEAL and A R D E A L (note the spacing of the letters.) BUCUREŞTI, (Bucharest) CARPAŢI, C A R P A Ţ I (note the spacing of the letters.) English translation the Carpatians. CERNA. DOBROGEA. DOBROGIA (note the spelling of the word.) DUNĂREA. German-English translation the Donau or Danube) ITALIA. (Italy). Very Rare. (some Romanian Collectors say there is a ROME bar but I have not found one yet or seen any pictures of one. JIU. MĂRĂŞEŞTI, M Ă R Ă Ş E Ş T I (note the spacing of the letters). MĂRĂŞTI, MĂRĂŞTI ◊ (with symbol at the end of the word.) OITUZ. SIBERIA (rare issue to the Romanian Volunteers Legion of Siberia.) T?RGUL-OCNA, T.G. OCNA (note Variation in spelling). TURTUCAIA. TRADITIE. English translation TRADITION, a rare bar that can be confered along with at least 3 otherRomanian decorations, as far as I understand it was awarded to a Father who was an officer if his son a officer was killed in war or vice versa, the number of father and son combinations would make this a rare award. * the reason for the 1916 -1919 Cross and 1919 bar was that at the close of WW1 the Romanians took back the area of Transylvania**, and marched on and occupied the capital Budapest, only leaving when preasure was brought to bear by the Allied Powers in 1920. ** Which had been a bone of contention for many years, the Hungarians claim it belongs to them (and they briefly re-occupied the area in WW2) even today it is a bitter subject both to the Hungarian communities who live in Transylvania and Romanians who live across the border in Hungary.) Points to note; other battle-bars can be found for the Romanian Crusade Against Communisum Medal of 1941, while some bear the same names as some of the WW1 bars, they are strictly for battles fought in the same areas in WW2 and of a slightly different design. Names of Bars in Bold are in my collection at the moment, (please see photographs.) As more information is discovered and more bars added to my collection updates will be posted. Kev in Deva.
  9. Hello Gentlemen, Im doing a research about Fieldmarshal?s Baton of period WW1 and WW2 Im looking for informations and pics of Batons of FieldMarshals of these countrys : Italy Finnland Romania Japan Thx in advance Regards Alexandre
  10. Over the next few days I will be adding pictures from my visit to the Romanian Military Museum in Bucharest on the 18th March 2010:- Sorry for the glare in some of the pictures, many were taken through glass display cases. Tunic for a Soldier in the Army of Moldova 1848 /49. http://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_04_2010/post-950-127200607497.jpghttp://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_04_2010/post-950-12720061632.jpg The first medals you come across as you take the tour. 3 Silver (Russian?) medals on Black & White ribbons. Kevin in Deva. :cheers:
  11. Which period of issue ? Medal from white metal and was gilded
  12. I know the periode ain't right, but they look nice together!
  13. The attached is a portrait photograph of an individual known to have served with Axis occupation forces on a Greek island during WW2. It was part of a collection of locally taken portraits, all of German soldiers and NCOs. This individual, however, apart from wearing a distinctly non-military tie, does not seem to be wearing a German uniform at all. The roundel-and-cross decoration he is wearing reads, as far as I can determine "II ARMATA"; on the basis of that, and the cut of his uniform lapels, I judge him to have probably been a member of the Romanian armed forces. This is puzzling, as I am not aware of Romanian units serving in Greece. Could he have been detached on an individual basis? Perhaps as an interpreter with Italian forces? Any confirmation, or any further information, gratefully received.
  14. Hi everyone, I recently purchased a Romanian Medical Merit Cross (Crucea Meritul Sanitar) for my collection, but it has the wrong ribbon. I was wondering if anyone could help me in locating the correct full sized replacement ribbon (either online store, or maybe have a spare length of ribbon to sell...)? I also am wondering what ribbon is currently on it? Thanks in advance for your assistance! Kindest regards, Jason
  15. Hallo Gents, I was lucky enough to pick this item up at the local Car Sale in Soimus near Deva:- Zip up front, 2 breast pockets, each with 2 press-stud fastenings, left-hand side pocket with internal divider for 5 pens. Press-stud elasticated sleeve cuffs fastenings. Left sleeve has a small pocket for field dressing (?) Waist belt loops with double press stud positions to hold webbing. Kevin in Deva. :jumping:
  16. Who can help me identify this badge? Have a number of Romanian badges from a friend but I cannot identify this one ' alt='' class='ipsImage' width="500px" height="750px"> ' alt='' class='ipsImage' width="500px" height="750px"> ' alt='' class='ipsImage' width="500px" height="750px"> ' alt='' class='ipsImage' width="500px" height="750px">

  18. Romanian 1st Lieutenant from period of Ferdinand I (1914-1927). What is his medal and branch?
  19. I recently gained possession of this 6-place "snap-in" ribbon bar. The German awards are clear. The two Romanian and the Bulgarian are not. I need some help. To me, this look like a German NCO's ribbon bar. The swords on the Romanian ribbons are gold, the Bulgarian is silver. Since there is no "Crusade" ribbon, I assume this to be a pre-1942 ribbon bar. Help!
  20. Certificate for the Grand Cross of the Order of the Crown of Romania http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_the_Crown_(Romania) for Baron Constant Goffinet http://nl.wikipedia....nstant_Goffinet signed by Carol I of Romania http://en.wikipedia....ol_I_of_Romania The portrait shows Goffinet with the star of the order; next to him is his twin brother Auguste.
  21. Same thing here, loking for a identification of the man on the picture and his medals, please. cheers |<ris
  22. I have just encountered a list and photos of a large collection of world Orders and Decoration which include some rare pieces. In the list is a Knight's badge of the Cuza Order of Union, which looks of similar quality to the later Carol I issues. I know Kretly was ordered to make the badges but are any contemporary examples known to exist or were they destroyed or are there later museum quality copies known. Any information would be gratefully received. Paul
  23. Dear Forumites, Since you should be in this form quite educated in this matter, and because I am visiting Bucarest this weekend I was wondering if there are any interesting sites or museums to be visited where I can find nice orders or military uniforms? I would be very interested. Thanks in advance for your most precious inputs... it's very much appreciated! ciao, Claudio
