Afghan Medals

Recommended Posts

Here are several items I brought back for my collection.  Can't ID some of them, thought I'd show the experts on the forum and see what shakes out.

 

Enjoy!

I have a bunch of PDRA medals, nothing special.  I passed on an Order of the Saur Revolution (type 1) that I am trying to get a friend in Kabul to buy and send to me.....

Very attractive pre Soviet medals there.  I wish I could ID them for you.

You have  1) Order of Independence [grade could be knight or officer equivalent] & a bravery medal, AND 2) Order of the Star [grade could be knight or officer equivalent] plus what looks like an Order of the Supreme Sun [grade unidentifiable, this design sometimes used as a headgear ornament.  Given attachment rings, possibly yours is the latter].      Google afghanistan kingdom medal and/or see dealers' lists for for IDs and additional details.   Dr. G. Tammann wrote a practically unobtainable comprehensive guide --  however, his collection and short discussions are more readily available in the 2008 UBS auction of his collection catalog which sometimes appears for sale.
