Bulgarian Partisan Badge


Recommended Posts

Nice! The owner has some special rights: First, 50% off the tickets for Rail, automobile and water transport in the country. That's Ok. Second, free use of public transport within the town. Ok, too. But the third is really cool: free use of the public baths in the country :cheeky:

Well, I was hoping to add another one of these here; unfortunately after almost 40 days, it still hasn't arrived. So, I think I won't be seeing it at this point either. :rolleyes:

Looks like the top star arm has had some enamel repaired as it appears to be darker in color and remnants of enamel can be seen on the gold edges.

Question; I have seen a few now that have the center slightly rotated at different angles; is that anything to be concerned about?

Thanks, maybe one day.

I don't know how many were actually awarded. Earliest award date I have a document for this type of document is 1960. I do have early awards in 1959 on the first type of document. I have seen these awarded late as well, into the 1970's.

What is very hard to find is the star in exceptional, bright, undamaged condition. Most of them show enamel damage and wear to the center disc, loss of gilding, etc.

Here's an example of the first type of document:

Boy, you got me there, neither have I. Sure looks nice from the front side.

The motto is slightly different font and the screw disc has markings on it that might allude to a maker.

Were these made by more than one manufacturer? When did they stop making them?

I ask my bulgarian colegues. This is the second emission of the badge produced in 70-early 80-th......
