Medal for the 1973 War with Israel

So many collectors are popping up and wanting to collect Iraqi Militaria and there first start is trying to collect all the medals in Saddam's Medal Bar. Well the last medal on Saddam's Medal bar is the Medal for the 1973 War with Israel. There is one right now on an auction with a high bid right now for $225.00. I have 8 of these medals and I only paid 25-30.00 for them each. I think they are going to pay way to much for this medal. Like you say the Saddam's Medal Bar is a Myth.

Did this medal come in various classes? I've seen one without the white enamel (except for the year at the bottom) - could that explain this price?

All eight of mine are the same like this one that just sold. I have seen some here in Iraq and on websites for sell that had some of the enamel removed do to old age.

I was told by an Iraqi Collector that this was the only type manufactured: He does have the sample medals for this Medal that have never been manufactured, each of them numberd on the reverse side.

    • 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.
