THIS IS ORIGINAL CASE.

Is that the case in which the Soviets delivered orders? I ask because Yugoslav decorations made in USSR were delivered in very similar cases. Here are couple of pictures from the awarding ceremony held in December 1944.

Interesting and good to know information.

The reason I asked about those generic red cases back in post #46, I remember seeing a lot of Albanian Partisan Stars, mostly the gold versions, being offered for sale in these type cases back circa 2009 and wondered if it might have been an indicator of some type of anniversary presentation pieces, similar to all those Russian Order of Patriotic War badges.

Providing all goes well, I hope to have a nice bronze 3rd class example sometime this week.

Finally... holiday mail slowdowns, inclement weather, it finally arrives.  These are really nice in hand. :cheers:

A couple of quick questions/clarifications regarding the 3rd class awards.

- Was it ever fully agreed on exactly who made the 3rd class PS; IKOM - ZAGREB or PRÄWEMA (DDR)?

- Was there ever a Soviet 3rd class version produced; GOZNAK or MONDVOR?

Still looking to add a 2nd class silver version.

Good Day, Gentlemen. What is Your opinion about the authentic of this subject ?  It is positioned as 1 class. Of course this is the GDR, but I ask because a lot of gold-plated lower classes appeared on sale. Thanks.

Thanks for Your answer.

But here is the granular surface under enamel - characteristic for the GDR/Prawema and the nut is also GDR type. On the IKOM's, the surface under the enamel is smooth and the nut is completely different.

P.S. There are a few more 1 cl., one of which is similar to IKOM.

Hi,

what makers had their 'golden 1st class version' made in massive golden? And what maker did them silver with gold plated? 

How can one identify if it's massive gold or gilted? 

Kind regards,

Gerd V

Based in the LAME BOOK, 1st class is made by solid gold, and another version by solid silver with gold plated.

Based in the LAME BOOK, 2nd class is made by bronze and silver plated. In reality, some people say that is and another version of 2nd class made by SOLID SILVER, but I proof it in a JEWELRY SHOP and it is made by bronze with a VERY STRONG SILVER LAYERED.

Based in the LAME BOOK, 3rd class is made by bronze.

 

HAPPY COLLECTING MY FRIEND.

Hi friends,

I've recenty bought this empty Partizan Star box on Ebay which was in perfect condition...

When I got it, it was just packed in a foamed envelope (not in a box), and was wrapped in some paper. Dispite all that, the box was severly damaged :-((  I contacted the seller and he immediately refunded all my money. As I think these boxes are quite rare, I proposed to check what the remaining collectible value is, and propose him this price. Up to the seller to agree or not. Else I will send it back. 

As you can see, ALL the seams on the box has ripped and split...It must have been crushed in the mail under the weight of all the other packages and letters...  It's such a shame as I'm sure this is rare: a 2nd class silver IKOM star is rare... Not to mention it's box in perfect condition... :((  

What would be the remaining value of the sale price? 25%??

Kind regards,

Gerd V

Greetings gentlemen,
I'm far from being an expert for Albanian decorations so I'd like to hear your opinions regarding this 1st class, could it be Soviet type made out of gold? It was awarded to Yugoslavian citizen.
All comments are more than welcome.

    • 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
