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 . . . .

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • 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
