  1. Greetings esteemed fellow collectors! First time poster, but I've been reading a lot of the past posts. I'd like to share with you 6 St. George Crosses that I collected when I was a teenager from 1990-1993 (before I joined the military and got my own medals lol). I'm going through my collection to see what exactly it is that I have. I suspect a few are fakes as this was a time when the market was beginning to become flooded with the counterfeit garbage after the Soviet Union collapsed. I would love to get all of your expert opinions on what I may or may not have. I've numbered them for easy discussion. Thank you very much in advance! Here's what I think: 1. Fake 2. Real 3. Real 4. Civil War field made 5. Fake 6. Civil War field made (note St. George is facing the wrong way) Other then that I have no clue.
  2. Dear collectors, We are looking at archives and writen records of a family members of ours whom received the St George cross in 1916 or 1917. Would there be writen records - accessible - of the order recipients in Russia ? Thanks you for your help.
  3. Hey everyone ! Let me introduce myself. I am a collector of Imperial Russian Shoulder Boards. My collection consists of approximately 850 pieces dating from the Crimean War through WW1 and the Russian Civil War. Here are a couple of photos of some enlisted mans straps in my collection. I am always seeking to purchase original examples. Not the fakes you always see on Ebarf. Anyone with original shoulder boards interested in selling can contact me at : pagoni@sbcglobal.net
  4. Gentlemen, I just got this ribbon bar with Imperial Russian awards. This is not my area. Am I correct that these are St. Anne, St. Stanislaus, St. Vladimir order, Romanov anniversary 1913 and what ? (Prussian?) It looks quite German, but is this a bar for a Russian officer? What else can be said about it? Chris
  5. Find this nice album published by headquarters publishing house in St.Petersburg somewhere arounf 1912. 42 colors plates. Hope it will be usefull Cover
  6. Hallo Gents, just picked this up at the local Hobby Club meeting this evening, it shows a group 7 men on horseback, numbers 1,2,4, are wearing a unit cross(?) Any opinions welcome. Kevin in Deva. :beer:
  7. Hi! Although I am mostly interested in german imperial, I have a link to a russian General and hope to find out more here about his orders and decorations and early career. The data sofa"r: Wyneken, Baron Alexander Georgiewitsch/Johann Peter Alexander. * 20.3.1868, + 12.3.1917). Sein Vater war ein Finanzier, Kfm. 1. Gilde, Bankhausbesitzer Georg W. (geb. 1834).

  8. Really like these... This one was established in 1912 (June 25) for donation of 100 rubles or significant merit. This one made by Eduard. Obverse
  9. Hello. I have an opportunity to purchase a helmet which appears to be of Czarist Russia. Can you please take a look at the photos and tell me if you think it is an original period item? Also, any information would be helpful. Sorry, only have these three photos. Thanks. Linas
  10. I have had parts of this document translated, but noone could quite tell me what it was exactly for. Why it was issued? etc.
  11. I have a couple of basic questions for our Members living in Russia or often travelling there. In many shops (specifically in Moscow, but maybe not only there...) you can find repros of Imperial Russia's Orders and Medals. These are sold as new, no doubt about this, and are not destined to fool anyone. They are made in what I would call semi-precious materials... My questions : 1. Why to manufacture such copies ? 2. Where and by whom are they manufactured ? 3. In your opinion, who buys them ? And for what reason ? 4. Are they only "souvenirs" for foreigners (some museum shops sell them...) ? I would be interested in knowing more about these... Cheers. Ch. Pic : ? Christophe ? ChR Collection
  12. Boy, not much activity here lately. Sorry, I just can't describe this badge any better. Can anyone out there help me with a proper ID of this one? I think the disk is silver, with no markings. The RR emblem looks like a thin layer of gold over a base of something else, maybe silver. The screwplate, also unmarked, appears to be silver. Chuck
  13. As I may have mentioned, I've recently had the time and inclination to get active in the hobby again. Hauptmann helped me a lot with that. As a big part of that I've been cleaning up my man-cave and organizing a lot of things that are long overdue. When I reached into the back of one shelf I found a plastic bag with these three badges in it. It finally dawned on me why they were there. I brought them back from Tbilisi in 2009. Very shortly after I came home my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer, her second cancer diagnosis. To the back of the shelf the badges went, uncatalogued and unnoticed. As you might imagine, our lives changed dramatically and all my interests became very unimportant and stayed that way until recently, at the end of her lengthy recovery from yet another very serious problem. The important good news is that she's healthy, strong and flexible today. So here they are, three badges I've had since 2009 but am just now sharing. On the left is a Military Medical Academy badge. On the right is what I believe to be a Military Dental Academy badge. I don't know what the small Alexander II badge is. I'm hoping someone can tell me. http://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_09_2013/post-616-0-88968700-1379635460.jpghttp://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_09_2013/post-616-0-03672000-1379635477.jpghttp://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_09_2013/post-616-0-57640600-1379635493.jpg The book is one of my best references on Imperial medical badges. I show the dental academy badge (?) on the bottom right along with an explanation of it. I'm enjoying the hobby again and this was a real surprise find. Chuck
  14. I've never seen one like this before. What I'm told is that it is a late-war Turkish Front Soldiers George Cross. What it looks like is a very worn George Cross with gold edges. It came from a Tbilisi family, supposedly from their ancestor. Can anyone shed any light on this? Chuck
  15. Greetings gentlemen, I have recently acquired this Red Cross medal, thoughts and comments on it are more than welcome (especially when it comes to it's originality). Thanks in advance! http://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_10_2013/post-7937-0-45350900-1382613798.jpghttp://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_10_2013/post-7937-0-00580500-1382613822.jpg
  16. I would appreciate your help with translating the text on these old photographs, as well as any other details you could provide. Thank you in advance.
  17. New to this forum but in desperate need to get some help in trying to establish some family history. This is a photo of a relative. The "family legend" tells that he served in the personal guard for the tsar family - and yes I know this can be a very wide description. There are lot's of different parts that are referred to as to tsar Nikolaj II personal guard. Nevertheless this is part of what I am trying to establish. The photo is from 1915 and he is 25 years old. It has always been said that he was highly (?) decorated and there was reference that he had been awarded the St Georges Cross in all 4 classes. Now from what I can make out from this photo - the 4 medals to the left do seem to be St Georges Cross - they are all identical from what I can see. Anyone who can support that by looking at the photo? Secondly - anyone have a guess on what the other medals might be? I make it to be 5 more medals - not sure if the last item is a medal or a symbol for the regiment? Thirdly - anyone talented in identifying imperial Russian uniforms and could tell/guess what regiment he belonged to? img-203161755-0001.pdf
  18. Gents! I don't know if I am right here but I remember the fllowing and don't know if I am right. The orders of the Russian Empire rank ofcourse, the one is higher than the other. The point is that I read somewhere (cant remember where) that when someone received the a higher order it automaticaaly meant that he was knight of the lower ranking orders to. I remember reading thing like, "Knight of the Imperial Russian Alexander Newsky Order etc., etc." the etc. would than stand for the automatically lower orders such as the Wladimir Order. Am I right or just going a bit crazy here? Hope you can help me out thanks David
  19. Granted Not the same badge but you can see the difference in the enamel quality. On the Original the enamel is flat and even with the outside boarders Nice smooth as glass finish The Fake is very uneven, wavy.. Original Fake George
  20. Hello all Attached a picture of a cross St Anne 1st class presented as made by Julius Keibel and sold this last week-end in Germany. Imperial Eagle under the enamel of the reverse upper arm. IK under the enamel of the reverse lower arm. Superb quality but ... : - Size across is 60mm !! Never seen bigger than 53mm for a 1st class - Gold hallmark on eyelet is 56 and kokoshnik facing right (something wrong, no ?) Thanks for your comments Pavel I tried to upload the picture of the reverse but it seems that the maximum size is 70 k (one picture) : how to be able to upload a 2nd picture (other post ?)
  21. Hi guys, I can't find much information about this medal and would need some help. Like I understand it is Imperial Russian Medal "50 Years Sevastopol Defense 1855-1905". But who was entitled for that? I presume army and not civilians or bronze went for civilians as well? Also what kind a ribbon this medal used? I will post better pictures when the item is arrived. Thanks for your help guys in advance!
