FAKE BULGARIAN ORDERS ON THE MARKET


Recommended Posts

Hi Graf,

I am glad that there are serious places where such topics are discussed. Unfortunately, counterfeits have always been associated with collecting - just a good collector needs to know what and where to buy. Often greed overcomes the reason when you buy something at a very reasonable price.
I am very pleased that you have such a great knowledge of Bulgarian orders.
I will show here the counterfeits I know to protect other collectors from fraud.
I am sorry that a bad name has been created for the market and collectors in Bulgaria. fraudsters are a very small part, but as we say in Bulgaria - a spoonful of tar can ruin a whole bucket of brown.
The hit now are the fake cortes from the kingdom of Bulgaria - several people have specialized and make excellent fakes, but I will release this in another topic.

greetings from Bulgaria

Hi Petar,   I agree with you and  the other members - The Star is a fake I suspect that the enamel is a new soft one and will not pass the "needle test" The Star has so many bad spots to be

Hi Petar,

Thank you for your opinion.

 

Also you do not have to feel sorry for the "bad name" created by the fakers.

 That is the human nature and greediness that makes those people to do such things. Comparing to what has happened with Orders and decorations from other countries  that is a very small problem

I can reassure you that even people with  a "good" names and reputation  such as  well known Experts, Dealers, Sellers  and Auction Houses have closed their eyes and for the sake of nice profit cheated the collectors community..and still doing it  I have been keeping an eye on the Market and i can notice what is going on. However that is a very small issue comparing to much bigger frauds  in our society

It will be very nice from you if you have pictures and information of the "hew wave" of fakes of Bulgarian Orders

Regards

... There are Stars with the maker mark and also ones without this mark. The nuts on the back could be different Nevertheless all have very high quality finish You can see the nicely rounded edges of the stars arms 

There are legitimate stars without maker name on center backplate. You have to look at the entire package to determine if they are real or not.

Hi Graf,

I am a Chinese collector. I am optimistic about a set of Alexander orders recently, but I don’t know how to privately message you. Could you please send me a message, I would like to ask you to help me see if it is true or false. .:P

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
