My collection of Nordic awards


Recommended Posts

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 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. .

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

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • 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 .
