Excellent piece Sergio!

Made by Leningrad Mint (ЛМД mark on ring)

Now you need to find piece that was made by Moscow Mint.

It will have mark ММД at the bottom of reverse.

Another stable characteristic of Moscow vs. Leningrad is packaging.

Leningrad pieces packed in plastic while Moscow pieces in white cardboard cases.

Regards,

Nick

I prefer LMD, better quality, but as a collector i must have the MMD version with doc :)

I heard about the silver version but i never saw, the info that i have is that is made in Tombak and cover with silver, like silver plated..

Tell you the truth it doesn't matter if you are on your way "out" or you are selling real soviet/RF awards inside Russia.

If authorities catch you in the act there will be "troubles" ...

Another thing is selling these unofficial trinkets like MVD, Ministry of Defence, etc "awards" or ex-official medals.

i ask you to show because you have probably a specific cabinet for orders and medals

Probably :lol:

P.S. I bet Paul has like three or maybe even five such cabinets :whistle:

Hi, there!

Do I make a mistake, or the authentic ones are made of sterling silver?.. I write this because I think I've seen one on a wellknown auction site, last year.

Phil, official material for this one was silvered tombac.

Direct quote from original statute "Юбилейная медаль "300 лет Российскому флоту" из томпака с серебрением"

Personally I've never seen such medal in silver ;)

Sergio, the best cabinets for medals are the 18th-19th century collectors cabinets which were often used for gems,cameos,mineralogical specimens etc. The one I have, which is early 19th century glass fronted, cost me £150, I already have about 500 British India related campaign medals in there and there is room for at leat the same amount again. Not ony do they hold a good ammount they look much more attractive than the modern formica crap.

    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.
