Does anyone know these two Swedish medals? Request help


Recommended Posts

Dear friends, I ordered two Swedish medals from a friend yesterday. However, when I checked the information, I didn't find any relevant information. I only found similar information, so I would like to ask, what is the full name of this medal? "Royal Patriotic Service Medal"? Why do I see that there is a sale, the face of the medal is to the right, and the one in my hand is to the left?

Although he looks worse, there is no hook. . .

They are all Oscar II medals. . Which one is correct? I know that there are many medals in the Kingdom of Sweden that are not officially issued.

They are all correct. There are 2 bust types for Oscar II the bust right is the first 1872 to circa 1900 the other is the circa 1900-05. I suspect there is a second variety of the older bust 1906-07 without Norwegian title. They are medals of the Swedish patriotic society which give awards for various meritorious services and have various ribbons depending on the issue. They are officially . The first reverse is for long and faithful service, the second for loyalty and fidelity. There are many varieties of these medals dating back to the 18th century. They are an inexpensive collecting theme for tbe silver medals, the rarer gold medals are more expensive but rarely more than gold value

Thank you friends, your answer has solved most of my problems. But I want to see the photos of the winners. . I think this medal is very similar to the Russian medal of Nicholas II. I don't know how to call him, it looks a bit like an Olympic medal. .

    • 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.
