There hasn't been much focused discussion of these (to me at least) very confusing badges.

Could we start some? Please??

Just to start it off, here is what my notes have on types and such details. I am sure these need MUCH help.


Type 1 (E01, numbered) - Low = 203/High = 945 - 1940s?

Type 2 (E02) - Low = ??/High = 1054 - 1950s?

Type 3 (E03) - 1960s?

Type 4 (heavy construction, reliev reverse, Soviet-made?)

Type 5 (E04) - 1970s?

Type 6 (E05) - 1980s?

Type 7.1 (E06, unnumbered) - 1990s?

Type 7.2 (E06, numbered) - Low = B-5/High = B-1266 - 1990s?

These Border Guards awards is one of those subjects that I guess I really like, among other Mongolian awards, so for a while I tried to get as many different ones as I could find. Only a few missing on this category from those listed on Dr. Battushig's book. As I believe other members have some of those I'm missing (such as E 02 and/or E 03) I guess we could have almost a complete data base here. Not mentioning the NIBs, for which I also have a couple of pieces.

Starting with my E 01, S/N 927.

Not sure if this is a E 05! Unlike the pic on Dr. Battushig's book, this one has a more "golden" color than a "silver" one on those four "arms"!

No S/N on this one, but just a kind of mint mark I guess.

Another one. No S/N or mint mark. And a pinback "variation", opposed to the screwbacks posted above!

No idea if it could be a E 06. Again, unlike the pic of the E 06 on Dr. Battushig's book, this one has a "golden" look, not a "silver" one!

Close up of the cover.

Unfortunately my old scanner really don't like gold or silver colors!!! :banger:

Actually the letters in the real Doc are perfectly visible and very golden color! :blush:

The real color of the cover is a kind of dark brown.

Nice things, Dolf! You have launched this very nicely!!


Thanks Ed.

In fact re-reading your initial Post I was wondering if you wanted a thread containing only the first few Border Badges, kind of from E 01 to E 06, or if it's ok to post every (available) Border Badge on the E section of Dr. Battushig's book!

Please let me know. I have a few more and if it's ok I can post them later. (Dinner time now :beer: )

Dolf :cheers:

All border guard related stuff, please, though I do find E1-E6 to be especially interesting/confusing.

Why not call this a "Category E" thread? (Maybe we need other "category" threads too??)

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
