Just interesting, what was the range of price for this order before ... (last year etc...)

I can't tell, I was just shown the medal, and told that it is "very expensive, about $20,000".

How much would it cost without enamel damage - $30,000?

In today's market? Probably. I was shown one in UB ayear ago with a silly asking price of $25,000 (and it MAY be this one, though I don't recall the enamed damage -- new damage? -- have photos somewhere -- and if the silly/stupid step of hiding the serial number had not been taken . . . grrrr!!).

"(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-??"

Ed, I believe this Type is not a A 32.2, but a A 32.1 instead, right? A 32.2 has the inscription in the front in Cyrillic, not Uighur.

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

As for this one, isn't it a A 32.3 instead?

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

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

Same with these, aren't they A 32.4 instead? The A 33 series is for the Mother Heroine series I believe.

Thanks,

Dolf

Update on typology and serial number ranges. The confusion thrives.

Type 1 (Screwback; МОНДВОР mintmark; long oval design with two red banners, ~300 awarded) - Low = 316/High = 792

Type 2.1 (Screwback; upward-curved МОНЕТНЫЙ ДВОР mintmark; Uighur; SN at 6 o'clock near bottom) - Low = 9/High = 2831

Type 2.2 (Screwback; downward-curved МОНЕТНЫЙ ДВОР mintmark; Uighur; SN directly below screwpost) - Low = 1151/

High = 2878

Type 2.3 (Screwback; no mintmark; Uighur; SN at 7 o'clock) - Low = 1562/High = ????

Type 2.4 (Screwback; hand-engraved МОНЕТНЫЙ ДВОР mintmark; Uighur; SN at 6 o'clock near bottom) - Low = 1710/High = 1776

Type 3.1 (Screwback; Cyrillic; slightly concave reverse; SN at 7 o'clock) - Low = 2/High = 6952

Type 3.2 (Screwback; Cyrillic; flat reverse; SN directly below screwpost) - Low = 5094/High = 9941

Type 3.3 (Screwback; Cyrillic; flat reverse; SN at 6 o'clock) - Low = 10007/High = 15000

Type 4.1 (Pinback, silver) - Low = 15015/High = 30426

Type 4.2 (pinback, bronze) - Low = 31650/High = 39785

Type 4.3 (pinback, bronze, no serial number, unawarded escapee?)

New in my collection!

Newly in, a shortened screwpost so easy to scan.

A type 2.1 (?) (A 32.1). The mintmark is straight (enough); I am coming to believe all the mintmark differences here are meaningless.

Number 9. <img src="http://gmic.co.uk/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/jumping.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":jumping:" border="0" alt="jumping.gif" />

That's nice, I have one coming my way which could be best descrined as an older brother to this one:) Pics to follow.

Got my uigur polar start with serial nr 8 in today. It's in almost pristine condition, perhaps unawarded?

Pics to come this evening.

    • 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.
