Hello all,

This has been in my collection for almost 15 years now. I didn't pay much for it and believed it, at the time, to be 'a really good fake'. This was mainly because all the original versions I had seen online were much more worn, with the gold plate to the obverse having almost completely dissapeared.

Some years down the line I found a site which had some detail regarding numbers of Orders of Glory. This one has a high number for a 2nd class (44,352), which seems to put its award date sometime in the 1960s.

If it's a fake it's very well made, silver, gilt and complete with brazed ring... I've not commissioned any research on this due to doubts about authenticity.

Then I thought perhaps the community here would be able to comment?

you can take a look here: http://s1106.photobucket.com/albums/h361/vladtheman03/Order%20of%20Glory%202nd%20Class/

Any thoughts?

    • 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.
