    the collection sold in Turin is the famous Fattovich one.

    Most pieces were used to illustrate V. Mericka's book "Orden und Ehrenzeichen der Oesterreichisch-Ungarischen Monarchie", Vienna, Schroll, 1974.

    The copies (of orders, mostly) were correctly described in the catalogue, for what they actually are. They were made by messrs. Rothe & Neffe, Vienna, directly on behalf of Prof. Fattovich and the average quality is very high.

    The decorations (Tapferkeitsmedaillen, Militärverdienstmedaillen, and commemorative ones) are -mostly- exceptional, for quality and provenance.

    I feel myself honoured for having known Prof. Fattovich personally: he was a true gentleman and a collector of the old school, with a deepest knowledge in the field of phaleristic.

    I was at the sale and felt touched, seeing pieces I've had in my hands when I was nearly a boy, going to the most different destinations. Each of them has a story of its own and hopefully, us collectors will remeber the great collector that was able to put together such a collection.

    I think that Professor Fattovich is happy that his collection continues its life in new collections.

    Best wishes,

    I'd agree that your dear friend is most happy that his collection lives on through other collectors where they will be appreciated and cherished ------ not in some musty museum vault buried away.
