    A Badge Egypt

    Recommended Posts

    The differences In the piece illustrated by nickstrenk today  in the first post here are interesting compared to  those graham links to from the 2018 exchange on GMIC. In relation to those Egyptian Military Technical Academy awards similar to the insignia starting this thread, as  previously illustrated by nickstrenk and Owain in the 2018 thread that graham linked above, there are a few good photos of an example from an eMedals listing (Item: W5219) for a 3 September, 2019 offering (https://www.emedals.com/egypt-republic-an-order-of-merit-of-the-united-arab-republic). 




    Obverse of the eMedals Item: W5219 offering from the 3 September, 2019 sale (for US$135). Unlike the more precise identification by ChrisW and Owain in that 2018 thread which graham links to, the eMedals description calls this "Egypt, Republic, An Order of Merit of the United Arab Republic". The auction description states " الجمهورية العربية المتحدة‎ al-Jumhūrīyah al-'Arabīyah al-Muttaḥidah. In bronze gilt with red, white, green and black enamels, measuring 45.8 mm (w) x 47.5 mm (h), stiff-framed original blue ribbon suspended from a bronze gilt and black enamelled hanger with pinback, scattered gilt wear and greening, intact enamels, better than very fine. " Unlike the 2 other examples illustrated by nickstenk and Owain, the eMedlas piece has some black coloration on the basal embellishment that has partially worn off.

    This is a UAR Military Technical College badge and the two suspended links read, I think, 'Good Administrative Duty' and 'Sport Superiority' - confirmation or otherwise awaited!

    Thanks for posting, nickstrenk! This is a very nice example of a UAR-era Military Technical Academy badge, usually given to students during graduations - and frequently worn throughout their military career. I’ve never seen bars like on this example. Also like the presentation box, probably from a tourist-oriented shop in the famous Khan el-Khalili bazaar.
