True, about 400 or so were issued but no list of recipients just yet..... I wish this info was available....

I've got three that I'd love to ID!!

Right now, getting one with the document is the only hope. While I doubt if rolls will emerge anytime soon, we can always hope.

I am working on an article for JOMSA on this one and Battushig is seeking more information, when the current chaos in Ulanbaatar grants him the time.

Not exactly one of "our sort", but here is Navaannzrg, one of the Mongolian emissaries to St. Petersburg before the revolution. While many of those on this delegation got Tasarist awards (giving them the idea for the Order of the Vajra), he is wearing a Chinese Imperial award here.

Honored Employee of State Security Comrade Taya wearing the Honorary Badge of the Ministry of Interior along with the Order of the Red Banner of Military Valor. The photo shows that Comrade Taya, unlike his many other colleagues, did not change his older type badge and order with later type ones. The photo taken in late 1970s.

    • 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...

    • 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.
