Hi Avsar,

just for my understanding: In Turkey miniatures are official awarded/handed out pieces? I never heard that for example from the TWM (Demir Erman, The Turish War Medal: "... these applications were not mentioned in the War Medal Regulation, ...)

If not, I must say, that it is usual in countries all over the world, to buy miniatures at a local seller with local made miniatures.

How could then a miniature be a fake?

Hello Uwe ,

Yes , they are not offical , you are right but they must be made in the period .

Thoose ones sold on ebay , the Medjidie and the Twm are fantasy ! They made not 100 years ago , probably they made few weeks ago as same as the Osmanie Order sold by the same seller .

That type of swords on the miniature medjidie is fantasy , the upper crescent and star is also a fantasy , you can see that it looks like a Crimean period Crescent and star , ( Crescent with open ends only used in Crimean period Medjidies but in that period there was no scimitars !!! )

Same as the upper part of the TWM miniature , they are all fiction . Nothing never exist as them !

Best ,

Dear Avsar

Thank you a lot for your reply, in fact i got this item with a breast medal from a local dealer here in Beirut, i think they cane from Aleppo, i doubted their authenticity thats why i didn't pay more than 100$ for both, fair enough i think, but i am really surprised by the craftsmanship of the makers they are really talented.

Best Regards

Thanks for the info .

Infact your fake is just a cast .

Anyway normally you do not have high possibility to purchase an original Medjidie set with breast star for 100 USD .

Kind Regards ,

Hello Ray ,

Very small pictures but they look Ok , they are not fake but the thing is both of them in-complete . The first one has a needle attached on the reverse which must not be there , there must be Crescent and Star but missing ... The second one is totally problem , it doesnt have any value in that condition , it is just a reverse of a Ottoman Empire's mint made Medjidie order with a fiction later attached front .

Last messages i am only informing bad news but what can i do ... :(

All the best ,

Avsar Ibar

Your advice and information are always valuable Avsar! Thank you for reporting these fakes, I think fake orders and medals is one of the biggest problems of our time. We should all follow your example and report dealers and manufacturers of fake items.
