where can i find french ribbon stars?

Recommended Posts

I am in DESPERATE NEED of french bronze, siver & gold stars for the ribbon of my vichy Croix du Guerre. I was telted by the dealer i got it from that she knew the origional recipient & that the ribbon should have the emblems on. But the ribbon has only a number of holes!!!! I REALLY NEED to get these stars in order to make the balance tidy. I just don't feel right having a medal incomplete & with a ribbon full of holes; it is like going out without any pants on.

If any of you can help i will be very gratful!!!

I just NEED to know where to get them from, in England or Europe.

Thank you!

5 GBP each gilt, silver, bronze( Item Ref No: L1786)

liverpool medals

Yikes ! Not hard to find in my neighbouring country of France and, without postage, I'd get three for that amount. However, they would likely be newly manufactured ones but I guess that goes for the Liverpool ones as well : no mention of anything to the contrary in their ad.

Cheers,

Hendrik

With regards Liverpool medals, they are currently showing this item: L14668 at 35 Pounds.

Under the description of a 1941 Romanian Anti-Partisan Medal :speechless:

as also with this piece: L14712 at 35 Pounds.

A common Crusade Against Communisum 1941 Medal :speechless:

As far as I am aware there was no specific Anti-Partisan Insignia for the Romanians.

Yes, as with most dealers, the more removed they become from their arena of maximum comfort (in this case, British ODM), the more ragged their identifications become and the more random their pricing gets. I think this is true for all professional dealers and becomes positively laughable when you delve into the festering swamp of eBay.

We could post dozens of laughable examples, from a wide range of dealers. This is why it is vitally important for the collector to have their books and journals as ready reference.

Hi Ed, :beer:

I fully concur, but, how anybody in such a business could translate: LOUIS PHILIPPE ROI DES FRANCAIS

as Romanian is beyond even a non-French speaker like me :banger:

They (like other dealers) also very often link the wrong images to their text. I must assume this is what happend here. When you get some pre-pubescent computer geek doing your websites, . . . :blush::o

Hello Gents,

I've taken the liberty to ask Liverpool Medals for a picture of the reverse of that "table medal" : they were showing the same picture as both obverse and reverse on their site ... curious to see if they will spot the error of identification :rolleyes:

Cheers,

Hendrik

This may be obvious, but have you tried Arthus Bertrand, Rue de Rennes, Paris?

Have they EVER responded to communication from ANYONE (even in FRENCH?)?

Well, yes, actually. (But it WAS in French).

I picked up lots of extra stars and devices at the Maitre Tailleur when I was at the French Cavalry School at Saumur. That may be a possibility if anyone has access to a French base.

You won't usually get a reply from Arthus Bertrand in the rue de Rennes other than to refer you to their retail outlets. Their principal retail point for ODM and accessories is

6 Place Saint Germain des Pr?s,

75006 Paris

Tel.: 33 (0) 1 49 54 72 10

Opening hours:

Mon. 11 a.m.-7 p.m. and

shopinfo@arthus-bertrand.fr

More precisely, the ODM department can be contacted at decorations@arthus-bertrand.fr or by phone on +33 (0)1 6993 6993

There are people there who speak pretty good English. Don't mention that it's for a Vichy cross...

Hope this helps,

Paddy
