Hello all,

This weekend I had the opportunity to play with this new camera... :P

I think the results were good enough to show to the owners of some amazing collections here in the forum.

Cheers,

Ricardo

Ricardo,

Nice pics, felicita??es ;)

I specially like those Brasilian awards! :love:

Funny that the shape of the cross on the Medalha de M?rito Militar looks pretty much like the cross of the Portuguese Ordem de Aviz!

Sauda??es de Portugal :beer:

Obrigado Dolf!

I think that portuguese orders and medals are really beautiful. Many brazilian imperial are very similar to portuguese orders. In a near future I hope I?ll post something here.

Sauda??es!! :beer:

Ricardo,

Yes, from some pics I've seen here on the Forum and elsewhere, it seems indeed that the design of some Brazilian imperial awards was infuenced by the design of some Portuguese awards.

Well, probably normal for brother countries I guess :beer:

Anyway, these Brasilian Orders and Medals you posted are really gorgeous!

Sauda??es,

Dolf :cheers:

You?re right! :beer:

Dolf...I just saw your collection of Portuguese awards :jumping::jumping: Amazing pieces! CONGRATULATIONS!

I?m trying to get a "Ordem de Nossa Senhora da Concei??o de Vila Vi?osa" from a dealer in Rio de Janeiro.

Let?s see what happens...

Ricardo,

Thank you. My favorite is (probably) the Ordem de Santiago de Espada, but it's a hard decision... ;)

Recently a brest Badge of the Order was sold on eBay, can't remember for how much.

There are a couple of them (Order with ribbon) for sale from an English dealer, but both have some damage on the enamel. Please feel free to PM me if you want to know more details.

Thanks everyone for the nice words :beer:

Dolf, I think you?re right. The Ordem de Santiago de Espada is awesome!

Kevin, I?m using a Nikon Coolpix very, very old...one of the first models...the trick here is the use of a tripod and a halogen lamp. If you use the flash from the camera all the details of the pieces will be lost.

The standards came from my wife?s collection of souvenir mini-plates... :rolleyes:

Jacky, the medal you?re asking about is a "Medalha do Pacificador / Peacemaker Medal" for army personal who distinguished by acts of bravery. The shield are from Duke of Caxias (August 25, 1803 - May 7, 1880 - - Considered one of the most important heroes in Brazilian military history, Caxias fought in the Argentina-Brazil War, the War of Tatters, and, most notably, in the War of Triple Alliance).

Here?s a portrait of him, using a wonderful "Order of the Rose" among others...
