Photo or picture about Afghan Order of the Supreme Sun


Recommended Posts

Ed Haynes wrote a comprehensive study of Afghani awards in 2016.  Perhaps you could contact him for further details.  Another place to start -- auction catalog of G. Tammann's collection [UBS 2008].  Tammann also wrote an exhaustive study of the entire range of Afghan awards but I do not know where one can find copies.  Tammann himself seems not to be involved with Orders study since 2006 or 7.  

A 1998 Russian language monograph briefly mentions the Order but is largely worthless in terms of information or illustrations.  General sources like Werlich or Stair Sainty & Heydel-Mankoo offer few images or information.

Morton and Eden  catalogue june 2017 (my last magnus opus prior to my near fatal illness) contained many Afghan awards similar in quantity to Tammans offerings and included several rarities and a few unrecorded items www.mortonandeden.com follow the links. Well worth a look

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
