Here is mine with a Soviet Inscription

Hehehe, Soviet inscriptions ... They still use these letter and they are not Soviet. ;)

Those are not rare. It's just that there is 2 versions of that medal. Latin or Cyrillic. Thanks for the better pictures than the one I have shown. :beer:

Bryan,

Cyrillic letters are native letters in Serbia, Macedonia, Montenegro and parts of Bosnia-Herzegovina (republic's of Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia).

In Yugoslavia Cyrillic and Latin letters were equal in public usage.

So, they are not Soviet inscriptions.

SasaYu, thanks for a better explanation than mine. I would never call Cyrillic letters Soviet inscriptions. I was just trying to explain "order of victory" that those letters are called Cyrillic.

I am sorry due to lack sleep I accidently called them a Soviet Inscription :banger: as I did not relise the Cyrillic alphabet was used in Yugoslavia ;)

Anatoly,

I finally buy one of these medals and now you tell me I need three more! Not fair.

Bryan,

One of your posts shows the ribbon bar device and the others don't. My cased medal did not come with a ribbon bar device so I suppose that one of yours did and the others didn't. Is there a place for the ribbon bar device in the case for the one that shows the ribbon bar device with it? Do you know why some come with the ribbon bar device and some don't?

Regards,

Gordon

Bryan,

Sorry but that doesn't seem reasonable. Why would they recess the bottom of the case for the medal and not the ribbon bar? Are there awards that do have the ribbon bar device in the case with the bottom of the case recessed for it to fit into?

Regards,

Gordon

Bryan,

In rereading my last post I feel that I owe you an appology. For a beginner in studying Jugoslav medals I sound a little strident. When I ask for help I should accept it without questing it. At least until I know more about what I am talking about. Thanks for taking the time to respond to my previous questions.

Regards,

Gordon

Gordon,

there is another variation of this order. The word "ZASLUGE" was changed to "ZASLUGA" in some later manufactured medals. I haven't seen this variation, I can even tell you the type of used letter: latin or cyrilic. It would be intersting to see this variation.

Don't worry Gordon. I haven't seen anything rude in your post. I also don't know the real answer, but the only thing I can say is that all my cased examples from this medal do not have any recess place for the ribbon bars. It seems there is no place allowed for them. Only the big cased orders seem to have a place allowed for the ribbon bars.

    • I've never smoked a single cigarette in my 62 years so I can't compare, but I can say that I like Lapsang Souchong tea, having tasted it the first time when I was 16, and a sea cadet. I'm not a Brit, though.
    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • 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
