Recommended Posts

Hi,

Posted them already under Croatia section but probably wrong place.

Can you please ID those two awards and tell me approx value (if there is any) because I would like to let them go.

One of them is nicely engraved on the reverse.

Noor,

Your medals are indeed Hungarian. The one on the left is the - A HAZA SZOLGALATERT - For Servcie to the Fatherland in bronze (3rd class). The other medal is for the Magyar Kerekparos Szovetseg - Hungarian Cycling Association but it has the wrong ribbon. The engraving on the back says it was given for a relay race from Szeged to Budapest on the date shown. On todays M routes that is about a 2 hour drive. On the roads of the time it would have been a considerable distance by bicycle. The medal on the left, depending on condition is probably worth about U.S.$20.00. There is virtually no market for sports medals in Hungary so I have no idea what this medal would be worth.

Regards,

Gordon
