Bulgarian Order for Bravery 2nd class 1915 in case - super rare!


Recommended Posts

First time me seeing this super rare Order of Bravery 2nd class award in case if issue!!!

Version 1915 was awarded during WWI. Just to give you an idea of how scarce this award is - total of only 16 awards were presented in this version, with just 9 given to Bulgarian Generals!!!

I've seen couple of these awards without the case, this is first time in my collecting career that I encountered this medal in original case of issue!

EXCELLENT!!  Sincere congrats!!  Saw only one before [unissued in brown card box with same style title as case] in a private collection, Sofia 1980 & sure it 'escaped' from a central holding depot.

First time to see this!!  The Military Museum in Sofia did not have one of these [cased] in 1980 & probably not even now.  Never saw this degree cased in any private collection!!  Thank you for posting!!

    • 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.
