3 Imperial Medals


Recommended Posts

Just got these three lovelies in today (or at least i hope they're lovlies)

I believe they are the medal for the russo turkish was of 1828-29, The 40 year middle asia war and an Alexander the 3rd bravery medal.

I didn't pay very much for these so i would really appreciate honest opinions on whether or not they appear authentic. I can send higher res pics to email accounts if requested.

Secondly, i was wondering what the current market would place on these as a value.

A couple other questions i have are:

Should the bravery medal be numbered or did they not number the alexander 3rd medals?

The Bravery and middle asia medals appear to be contemporary to one another as they show very similar manufacture characteristics is this common or is it a sign of a sure fake.

I'm new to this field and focus more on Soviet era medals and orders so this will be a learning curve.

I look forward to hearing your comments.

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
