======================

I believe the above might need to be updated:

- B's book shows 115 as a type 2; 420 would rather then be put as highest sighted

- Recently 114 was on sale on eBay and this was a type 1

On a different note - rumor has it recently a mongolian hero star (NOT a labour one!) was sold by one of the major western dealers! Anybody on this forum the lucky person?

On several occasions Dr B had the serial number, of the items shown in his book, changed (Photoshop)

This is the case also with n?115 wich is in reality presumably n? 315 or 415

Also, if you look closely, some of the other imaged are "doctored" -- see, for example, p. 47.

Several years back, a type 1 Hero was sold by Igor. Does anyone remember (1) when and (2) for how much? I think Liverpool Medals also had one (same one?) once upon an age?

Help for failing memory, please. :beer:

Congratulations Ed, very nice piece.

On top of being the rarest of the rare, and then some, it is IMHO the most beautiful Mongolian order ever made, and that's saying something. :beer:

You collection is getting actually better than what I've seen in all Mongolian museums combined. :P

    • 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
