First... number 57 of T2V1S1

Next... a new variation... number 1562... Uighur inscription... concave reverse... serial number at 7 'o clock, no mintmark... this one obviously more interesting because I also have the award booklet incl. photograph of recipient! :)

You looked in the wrong column. Order was issued in 1937 not in 1947

:beer: Glenn

This order was issued in the year 37 of the Mongolian calender, which started at the Mongolian independance after the fall of the Chinese Qing Dynasty in 1911.

1911 is considered as year 1, hence 37 is actually 1947.

So, technically this should/could not be an Uighur inscription OPS.

All the other orders and medals are so straightforward, but these OPS's give me a headache :unsure:

For "completeness" purposes. I have 4 different Uighur script OPS's (from left to right - two right hand ones with booklet):

no 57 - mint mark at 12 / number at 6 'o clock and completely visible when screw is on

no 307 - mint mark at 12 / number at 6 'o clock and number half covered by screw

no 1562 - no mint mark / number at 7 'o clock and number completely visible

no 2082 - mint mark at 12 / number at six but very close to screw and fully covered when screw is on

Pics of order booklet for 1562 are show above already (a 1946 booklet). Will post order booklet for 2082 next (36 whopping pages! although I don't see the typical depiction of order number in it - nor does it make sense to have a 1940 order booklet for this high number... so is it even the correct order booklet?)

A nice one, Gerd. And the Imperial Addicts talk about their "slippery slope" . . . ! :P

By the emerging "working vocabulary", this would be a nice Type 3.3.

(A 31/M 12.1) -- Type 1 (Screwback; МОНДВОР mintmark; long oval design with two red banners, ~300 awarded); Low = 701, High = 792; 1936-39

(A 32.1/M 12.2) -- Type 2.1 (Screwback; upward-curved МОНЕТНЫЙ ДВОР mintmark; Uighur; SN at 6 o'clock near bottom); Low = 57, High = 2831; 1940-41

(A 32.2/M 12.2) -- Type 2.2 (Screwback; downward-curved МОНЕТНЫЙ ДВОР mintmark; Uighur; SN directly below screwpost); Low = 1151, High = 2789; 1941-??

(A 32.2/M 12.3) -- Type 3.1 (Screwback; Cyrillic; slightly concave reverse; SN at 7 o'clock); Low = 2, High = 6952; 19??-??

(A 32.2/M 12.3) -- Type 3.2 (Screwback; Cyrillic; flat reverse; SN directly below screwpost); Low = 5094, High = 9941; 19??-??

(A 32.2/M 12.3) -- Type 3.3 (Screwback; Cyrillic; flat reverse; SN at 6 o'clock); Low = 10007, High = 15000; 19??-70

(A 33.3/M 12.4) -- Type 4.1 (Pinback, silver); Low = 15074, High = 30409; 1970-2003

(A 33.4) -- Type 4.2 (pinback, bronze); Low = 31835, High = 39785; 2003?

(A 33.4) -- Type 4.3 (pinback, bronze, no serial number)

Subject to revision . . . .

    • 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.
