Images are too small to see the details but the box is certainly not original. Most of the collectors I know don't consider those bronze pieces or "museum copies" as original. My opinion is the same, if you want original order get MD or IKOM gold one.

Thanks. I would really want to buy this order eventually in my collecting "career" but it's too expensive for now since I'm only 18 and been collecting for less than a year.

You're welcome, orders like that one on ebay pop up quite often, I think there had been a few of them in this topic before.
Best of luck with your new hobby, as they say all good things come to those who wait.

Thanks for clarification, so the box is original but Albanian. I visited seller's website and noticed he has one more Yugoslav decorations in a box like that. Apart from that few orders are in wrong Yugoslav boxes.

You can always try your luck, contact seller and offer your price. It works sometimes. The seller chose the "buy it now" option, which may suggest he is open to negotiations.

Good luck!

Just checked out other auctions, some of the ribbon bars from this lot don't look authentic to me.

I've seen ribbon rolls and metal applications being sold separately so I guess it's possible someone bought them and started making ribbon bars from original material.

I've seen those ribbon bars being sold on ebay before and I'm pretty sure that some of these are fake.

Here's another one which looks like a reproduction to me. The ribbon looks like a reproduction and the medal looks too mint to be original as well as Tito being slightly different than from the original medal.

There has been a lot of talk about fake India&Burma medals on a certain forum. 
Here's another example some collectors presented as fake. Photos are from ebay.
There's definitely a "new" feel to it...

You're welcome! I didn't even notice that the seller is from Maribor, I saw that the ad is on Croatian website so I presumed the seller is from Croatia.
Anyway definitely genuine piece made by the Soviets.

    • 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.
