II class Order of St.George of General Makarov


Recommended Posts

Thanks for posting these Nick.

I like how Russia is re-introducing the old Tsarist Orders.

It would be even better if they resurrected old firms like Keibel and Eduard to make them :)

You get that right! ;)

Quality of St.Petersburg Mint is not very impressive :whistle:

It'd just be nice if the quality was there again, and gold for the gold orders :D :D come on gold! lol :D

I'd even be ok with the 14k or dare I say "lower" grades of gold :D

Gold isn't the main problem. Silver gilt is fine as long as there is good enamel work.

Really a shame how the modern ones look. They're the ugly cousins of the Tsarist ones.

Though I like the numbering on the the neck badge - that's a nice touch (but the engraving is badly executed)

The safety pin looks just ridiculous. It looks like it's going to break off after a little wear.

Hi,

I agree, horrible quality. It looks a lot like the Gode (sp?) copies of Imperial German Orders made for the general public. It must be a lost art creating the quality orders of pre 1918.

Regards,

Sam

Unfortunately, I must agree with Sam... The overall quality is darn near as low as Göde items...

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
