I had a chance to buy 4th and 5th class twice but I didn't. It's not in my interest. I collect more or less 1941-1945 orders and signs/decorations from late 40s and early 50s.

About Yugoslavian flag it's funny how the prices go becouse the 5th class is the rarest and the cheapest at the same time... :speechless:

Yes, you are right. It is pitty that there is no documentation. I'm using 'Yugoslavia Army Insignia & Decorations 1918 - 1990' but even this book covers not all medals. Good sample is VIS Medal issued in 1966 and given to member of general stuff and Tito comrades from Vis island. There is no information about this medal in this book. There are probably far more examples like this one.

I found another medal za povodom 30 godina pobjede - and I couldn't find any information about this medal in this book.

I have an impression that there are far more medals which maybe are still uncovered.

What catalog or book are you using?

Bryan,

Thanks for the post. I've been folllowing the Spink auction but didn't see this piece. I would tread lightly here before bidding. Since they show the reverse of the neck order I asked them for a picture of the obverse. There answer was it would be a long time in coming as the items were now on display. I suspect there may be enamel damage to the obverse and that is why they did not picture it on the auction. Their answer is similar to what a farmer shovels in his barn!

Regards,

Gordon

Gents,

The auction posted by Bryan has ended with a winning bid price of GBP 360.00 and ebay converts this to US$712.30. When you add Spink's 22.5 percent fee and 15 pounds shipping the actual total is approximetly $900.00. Above what I would pay considering condition, no case etc. Here is a picture of the obverse that Spink eventually sent to me. There does not appear to be any enamel damage but lots of surface wear etc.

Regards,

Gordon

Gents, what do you think about that convolute? - no documents. Is that the original box?

Hello KDVR

yes the box is original and the order looks OK. To be more sure I would need some better resolution pics, but as far as I can sees there is nothing wrong and if the price is reasonable this could be a nice buy.

Best regards from Switzerland

KDVR,

It's hard to tell about the price these days.

Couple years ago such sets were selling in $500 to $1,000 range.

only a visit card as a diploma... I believe the big rolled one has been lost by the family.

hello, it seems the ring has never been in its place... the ribon is absolutely not used or marked... I don't know what could be the best hypothesis to explain this case.

here's the box:

Thanx!

The ring has been there anyway :rolleyes:

And the reason is probably simple - the awarded man wore this order on the general bar with other awards.

    • 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.  
    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian
