This was awarded to Iraqi Pilots for service in the Iraqi AirForce.

This Order is worn around the neck.

Picked this one up from an antique dealer in Baghdad, Iraq.

Man you got a awesome deal, I bought the both of mine for $250.00 each. They both came with the mini Order and case. I seen one of the first class neck orders sale for $965.00 last year.

My 2nd Class I received from an Iraqi Brigadier General that was in the Iraqi Airforce. He was Awarded it for his service in the war with Israel.

That's the great part Lorenzo...you have the hisstory and provenance with your orders.....you ever think of documenting all in a book or your own web page? Your experience in Iraq coupled with your collection and the contacts you have made is sure to be interesting to many many more people...

As always I enjoy seeing your pieces....

    • 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.
