Gentlemen,

just 2 years ago one 1cl was sold for USD 600,-.

That's a price increase of 66 % in 24 month :rolleyes: .

Best regards :beer:

It depends if award is cased or not.

In general, all Yugoslavian awards went up in price nicely over the last couple of years.

Plus, USD declined, currently 1 GBP = 2 USD. Exchenage rate was better for USD two years ago.

2nd class - silver or tombac

Gentlemen,

the silver-variant of the golden gilded 2nd class of the "Order of the Yugoslavian People's Army" commands a higher price, than the tombac-variant.

How to make out the differnce?

In my case with my 2nd class it had been easy :D : At the rv. on a small edge of the ray of the star it lost the gold wash and showed the silver corpus.

Usually the checking of the weight should help: Both of my JNAs - 3rd class in pure silver & 2nd class in gilded silver - have a weight of +/- 65 gram. I assume that a tombac-variant of a 2nd class might be lighter in weight, than a silver-variant.

Has anyone checked the weight of a tombac 2nd class :unsure: ?

Best regards :beer:

Christian

Christian,

orders made of silver must have been marked (stamped) with silver mark on the back of the order.

Dear Sasa,

the 3rd class has two tiny silver marks at the rv., but the 2nd class has no silver marks at all.

But the 2nd class is made of silver, as I pointed out in the previous posting.

Maybe the thick gold wash covered the tiny silver marks at the 2nd class :unsure: ?

Sasa, do you know the weight of a 2nd class made of tombac?

Best regards :beer:

Christian,

as far as I know, orders of II and III class were made of tombac after 1980. and on these orders there are no markings on the back.

Sorry, do not know the weight.

    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.
