Ever read the famous story by Pushkin about the Mayor of a small town's medal lust for the order of the Sun...and later the Order of a St. Sava?

They were handed out by Consuls in the 1890s-1900s quite easily.

Yash translated Pushkin's short story in a 1960s-70s Medal Collector; have otherwise only seen it in English in a 1950s paperback Penguin collection. It's well worth reading, not only for ordens-lust insights.
