My russian collection

Recommended Posts

My collection of Imperial Russia orders ; adding maybe 5 or 7 affordable :sleep: orders to that collection seems a reasonable target, but I do not dream anymore of St Vladimir 1st class :shame:

Yes, I hear you. I wish I would have picked up more when the stuff was more reasonably priced.

Outstanding collection. :speechless1:

But I have to say -and don't take this as an insult- but you photo doesn't do them justice. Could you show us some close-ups of your favorites, or most interesting ones.... please.

Will try to post individual images, but am still wondering how we can go from 1Mb size or more to 70kb, without sacrifying the quality ?!

Are you using the JPEG format? Also, you may have to lower the resolution a bit. This can be done with very minimum impact on the appearance.

Let's try with some pictures - by changing the size - yes, Paul they are JPEG.

White Eagle, gold, by Eduard (1899-1903)

St Anne with swords for non christians, gold, by Osipov (1904-1916) ... with its original box marked ... with swords

St Stanislaus with swords, bronze, by Eduard (WW1) ... with its star.

Will work on next pictures ... next week-end !

Hello,

You have got a very impressive collection. I like more particulary the St Stanislas order with X. Have you got the box to go with this medal ?

Hi Christophe,

Yes, the St Stanislas 1st class w/swords in bronze is quite rare, I do have the corresponding star but no box (One day I found one marked with the manufacturer address in Petrograd, but too expensive)

The same cross exists enameled on both sides.

Regards.

Pavel

    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian  
    • I know the way I got into collecting is like so many other people; through a sibling. I also know that my love of history is barely unique in a place like this. So I know I have a shared background with many people. A less shared area - perhaps - is that I've always loved the thrill of the chase. When I decide I want, say, a 1914 trio with an original bar, to a cavalry unit, the utter thrill of getting out there and, (a) finding groups that fit the criteria and, (b) comparing them re: ranks, uni
