My little collection of finnish liberty crosses

Recommended Posts

Thank you Janne!

As you probably already know, there is a VR3 PR 1939 for sale at prenikka.fi.
The cross is in extremely fine condition and has a price according to it. But still only 48 awarded so mint crosses are really rare.

If I hear or find any other for sale I will send you a PM.

 

Pictures of my VR3 PR 1918 is on its way. Hopefully I can take good pics next week.

Here are the pictures of my newest cross. 

It´s not the best condition but since it´s so rare I´m happy with it anyway.

Yeah, it´s been really slow on finding new liberty crosses for my collection. So in the meantime I´ve been buying some other medals for my collection while I´m waiting for some new crosses to come up for sale. 

On Emedals there is a VR1 1941 without swords for sale (awarded 22 times) but I think it´s too expensive. Especially with the tax and customs fees. 

 

Someday I´m planning to make a new group photo of my liberty crosses, I just need the weather to improve so I can get good sun light.

Finally I've had the time take them out to make a new group photo of my entire collection of Liberty Crosses.
All crosses/medals in the picture are different years or variants. I think I have three or four different variants of VM2 1918.  

The one's I still search for are the following. 
1918
VM1 with red cross

1939
VR1 with swords
VR1 without swords
VR2 without swords

1941
VR1 with swords and oakleaf
VR1 without swords
VR2 with swords and oakleaf

1945-
VR1 with swords
VR1 without swords
VR2 with swords and rosette
VR3 with red cross
VR4 with swords and rosette
VR4 without swords
VM2 type 2

And of course all grand crosses and breast stars. But since they are waay to rare and expensive I don't think I will ever get those.

I just had the opportunity to purchase an original grand cross ribbon/sash from ww2. 

So if anyone should have a grand cross for sale, please let me know!
