Hi, I'm looking for good photo's (obverse and reverse) of the following Ciskei Police medals.


Order of Ntaba kaNdoda (NKN) (1981-1995)
Awarded to general officers, for "exceptional acts of national magnitude and meritorious foresight".

Insignia: A large gold medal depicting Ntaba kaNdoda mountain with the National Shrine in the foreground (obverse) and the Ciskei coat of arms (reverse). It is worn on a neck ribbon.


CP Star for Distinguished Leadership (SPDE) (1981-1995)
Awarded to general officers, for distinguished leadership or meritorious service contributing to Ciskeian state security.

Insignia: A gold Maltese cross with ivory rings between the arms, displaying the Ciskeian coat of arms within a blue circlet (obverse), and the CP badge and 'Ubunkokheli' and 'Leadership' (reverse). It is worn on a neck ribbon or on a gold ceremonial chain. There is also a gold 4-pointed breast star, displaying the Ciskeian arms within a green circlet on a light blue diagonal cross. Designed by Capt N.W.J. Kotze.


CP Star for Distinguished Service (SPME) (1981-1995)
Awarded to general officers, for distinguished service.

Insignia: An 8-pointed gold star (4 long and 4 short points) enclosed in a circular wreath, displaying the Ciskeian coat of arms within a blue circlet (obverse), and the CP badge and 'Inkonzo Eqaqambileyo' and 'Distinguished Service' (reverse). It is worn on a neck ribbon. Designed by Capt N.W.J. Kotze.


CP Insignia for Bravery (1981-1995)
For conspicuous or exceptional bravery in the line of duty, or in protecting or saving life or property.

Insignia: A green-enamelled gold-plated silver globical cross on a circular wreath, displaying the Ciskeian coat of arms (obverse), with the CP badge and 'Eyobukroti' and 'For Bravery' (reverse). It is worn on a neck ribbon.

For (I) particularly meritorious or exemplary service, or (II) 30 years service.

According to an official document, there are two variations of this medal. The one as listed, and an alternate variation where the badge is set abaisse and there above a curved inscription 30 YRS.

If anyone can help, thank you.
