Ed already posted a E 13, so I move on to E 14, which he also posted, but as mentioned earlier I have two different "variations" of this one. I think the one on the right on my pic is like the one Ed posted (with a "silver" look), the other on the left has a more yellow "golden" look. Is the one with a "silver" look just more worn? I guess it's possible as the reverse of both my Badges look almost the same. Anyway here are both.

I think, especially on these Mongolian badges, the gold- versus silver-coloured business may just be random variation in manufacturing. The same sort of thing we see with the Soviet 25th Anniversary of the GPW badge? What do we think??

Finally, two NIBs that for obvious reasons I believe they belong on this Border Badges category.

That's it folks, no more Badges on this category as far as I'm concerned.

Please complete the gaps here if you have any others on this E-Border Guards category.

Ed,

Yes, I guess it's a strong possibility.

Or those with a "silver" look may just have been more worn than those with a yellow "golden" look!

E 07b - For Success in Guarding, II

Dolf has shown some of these above.

See: http://gmic.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=10173&st=5

I just received one from one of our good forum friends that suggests more complexity in these E 07 badges than we have assumed.

Dolf's examp[les are on-target with the ones shown by Battushig, with medium blue backing on the second class' tablet where the "II" appears and gold-yellow on the "III".

This one has white on the tablet behind the "II".

Differences by branch, unit, or ???

Nope, absolutely plain. Just goofy reflections of scan or deviant screen behavior? Or the kind of visual fantasy outbreaks to which collectors of Mongolian awards are prone? All that lovely enamel?? :P

    • 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.
