Some help with Bulgarian decorations

Recommended Posts

Gents, my best buddy past away a while back (RIP my dear friend). We shared the same interest for Orders and decorations and he was a bit of a mentor for me. I was asked by his family to handle some of his collection and could use some help. I've tried to do my homework and have visited numerous web-pages for info. I think I've figured out the most i.e. classes, crown or not, war decoration and white enamel, but given the many founding dates I'm not sure how to tell them apart. I've enclosed some images and would appreciate any hints of what to look for regarding period of issue.

1. Order of Military Bravery 4th classn 2nd grade (possibly Balkan War?)

2. Order of Military Merit 5th class with crown, piece-time

3. Order of Military Merit 5th class w/o crown, war decoration

4. Order of Military Merit 4th class piece.time

5. Order of Military Merit 4th class, war decoration

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem

    • I recall I did the same on hot days at Old Fort York back in 1973-74 - wool uniforms, and at 90F they would let you take your backpack off.   Michael
