My friend bought this set days ago,and I suspect that this set of things is pieced together, not an original set.

 I only found the Red Star was awarded in 16.5.1945 and it's file online. Didn't found the Order of Glory 2nd & 3rd'file.

And in Red star'award document we can see it wrote that this lady Didn't got any medals or orders before,but the Order of Glory 2nd & 3rd'number is very small,I think they are issued much earlier than Red Star, which is unreasonable.

What do You think?

thanks

Personally,I do not like the scripts in the Order booklet.But I am not authorized to say what is the truth.I only expressed my point of view.

I am afraid your suspicion is well founded... You should always be very careful and cautious about the awards appearing last in the award booklet. In these case I see different handwriting for both order of Glory entries. Plus online check shows only Red Star for this female veteran. 

Could you show the reverses of the Glory orders in good resolution?

This set is pieced together,after searching through the number of the second class order of in the archives, the second and third class order of Glory belongs to two different people, and only the red star belongs to the female warrior.

yes I also agree the group is made up

the numbering is different both in ink as well hand writing.

Also the OGIII would have been awarded between late December 1944 and February 1945 so that also would make the dates on the award booklet suspect

    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian  
    • I know the way I got into collecting is like so many other people; through a sibling. I also know that my love of history is barely unique in a place like this. So I know I have a shared background with many people. A less shared area - perhaps - is that I've always loved the thrill of the chase. When I decide I want, say, a 1914 trio with an original bar, to a cavalry unit, the utter thrill of getting out there and, (a) finding groups that fit the criteria and, (b) comparing them re: ranks, uni
