First of all, I want to thank this Finnish friend for helping me many times and answering many strange questions. I used to like to collect medals and orders from the Austro-Hungarian Empire, but now I gradually tend to collect the breast star orders of the Grand Officer and Grand Cross before 1910.



Please accept my compliment to you


Please look at the Order of Olaf from my Grand Cross of the Kingdom of Norway. It is assumed that the age was created between 1925 and 1930. I know it has many versions. In fact, I am looking forward to a lion on the badge of the Grand Cross. . .


The governor of the Qing Dynasty "Duanfang" was beheaded in the 1911 Revolution. .


Diamond cut, really beautiful


The order of the three breast stars, I call "Austeritz" (War of the Three Emperors):P

Nice collection!

what are the year marks on the stars?

You need a sword order and an order of the seraphim to complete the set of swedish stars.

I did not find the year on the stars. . I can’t afford an angel with six wings, although I like it very much, the sword officer should be able to afford it。Actually I also want the Oscar II enthronement memorial you want, the light blue one

    • I've never smoked a single cigarette in my 62 years so I can't compare, but I can say that I like Lapsang Souchong tea, having tasted it the first time when I was 16, and a sea cadet. I'm not a Brit, though.
    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
