The Russia-bar "1916-R-1917"

Recommended Posts

I have only these pictures ...

Seems like a restrike.

The original has a dot pattern on the flat base (background) of the bar, here I see more of a stripes pattern, which is telltale for the fake.

same opinion here..

when you compare yours with the original on the website you refers to, you see that of your species, the 'R' is more round and detailed and also, when you look at the top of each number, the top of the original is not so thick as the restrike.

It's for the men who served on the Easternfront with the Russians against the Germans. They had armored cars with machineguns the so caled "autocanons".

when the revolution in 1917 broke out, they had to leave the country trough whole russia, over America and so back to the front in Belgium in 1918!

    • 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.
