Updated my serials numbers spreadsheet and it's amazing how the awarding of the SB's progressed:

- first 100: took almost 15 years

- next 100: took roughly 5 years

- next 100: took around 1 year!

Yes. The lowest recorded pinback is still 813 (with 788 the screwback high, so we have a narrow "window).

Aha, that's the post I was looking for:)

Just had a pinback 816 offered to me. Near miss:)

Same here, and at first I thought the serial number might have been 919.

Just turned out ot be really bad scans, but that would have been fun.

"...or is it maybe a non-awarded one?"

Bob, aren't these still being awarded nowadays?

Well, at least that's the info I had a couple of years ago directly from the source... unless that changed in the meantime.

When I bought #2006, back in 2004 I guess, it was already out there, years before the bank thing...

Cheers,

Dolf

Hi Dolf, good to see you back :cheers:

I guess (not sure off top of my head) they are still awarded. If they are, it still leaves the question: are they awarding "classic" SB's (using up old stock) or are they issuing new ones? And how many of those "classic" SB's are out there? Are the new ones identical to the classic ones? etc.

In any case, monstr is right: super order! :jumping:

From your post, it would appear that your 2006 is an awarded one then... but it still leaves the question of when the bank thing happened and unawarded ones came on the market

This place could use a bit of liveliness!

My box full of treasures is out of the vault and spending the night at home - here's a pic of some of it - my beloved SB's (6 screwbacks of which one with doc, 2 pinbacks, and one rather ugly "thing"):

Also, updated list of SB's which I am actively looking for in order to reunite with documents/group in my hands:

Order of Sukh Baatar 48

Order of Sukh Baatar 86

Order of Sukh Baatar 500

Order of Sukh Baatar 605

Order of Sukh Baatar 695

Order of Sukh Baatar 1770

Please PM me if you have any of the above SB's in your hands!

WOW! Man, that is the largest stock of S-Bs I've ever seen all reunited in one single hand!!! :speechless:

Just to check if I still have "eagle eyes" for these things: the "ugly thing" you mention (one of those recent ones, right?) is the one on top (at 12 o'clock) right?

"I guess (not sure off top of my head) they are still awarded. If they are, it still leaves the question: are they awarding "classic" SB's (using up old stock) or are they issuing new ones?"

Good question.

Well, if only guessing what would have been logical (or at least seems logical to me), they would have probably awarded the "classic" ones until the stock was over, then started awarding the "ugly" ones (I only had one once for a short period in my hands, then returned back to the source; ugly thing indeed!). Don't have that info anymore, I'm sure it will help if you know (and I'm sure you do) the date the new ones have been manufactured. And then "la cerise sur le gâteau" would be knowing the date they started being awarded.

But of course not eveything is logical, so sure other options are possible.

"And how many of those "classic" SB's are out there?"

You mean in collectors' hands?

If so, you alone have these nine (amazing :P ), plus you count at least two for each of most hardcore collectors known here, plus one-two for some of those guys we all know from where they are sold (eBay, other auctions, private dealers, etc), plus those sitting on dealers sites right now, and I guess you get a good idea of the actual number.

If you mean not only all these mentioned above, but also those still in their real (by merit, after all) owners' hands, the awardees, then the highest known/reported S/Ns would help.

"Are the new ones identical to the classic ones?"

In which way? Sure not in quality, as we already know.

Prestige? Guess in some cases still the same as before (imho probably most of those awarded to civilian, either artists, or all other cases), but obviously if you got it for deeds that took place in the old war days, or if you got it more recently, still for military, for 50 years in the Army or so... imho not the same prestige...

"From your post, it would appear that your 2006 is an awarded one then..."

Would be my guess, but who knows?

Your next question partially asks this one.

"...but it still leaves the question of when the bank thing happened and unawarded ones came on the market"

I've already known that, just can't remember it now.

That's an easy info for you to get, just ask... you know... ;)

"Also, updated list of SB's which I am actively looking for..."

Wow! If one day you manage to get them all, that would make 15 S-Bs in your hands... :speechless1:

Sorry, as far as I remember none of those have been in my hands, nor do I remember seing one of them around...

    • 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.
