Hello Schlange

 

This is Serbian Chetnik Ravna Gora badge, made in aluminum, with a proper clip pin, made after ww2 by the exile government, original period item with lowest number I have ever seen, quite good condition!

Congrats!

Im little confused by badge pin end - most badge has two "loop", but these has only one? Also some number stamp looks little diferente in comparation to oders badges.
Reason to worry or youst inicial production?

In my opinion its fine. Thats just most likely because its sure a early production number! So probably the first 1,000 don't look exactly the same as the higher number ones. Thats the best explanation I can give. Look at what an even earlier number looks like (this is the lowest one Ive ever come across), this one is under 50...

    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.  
    • 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
