Uncut connecting ring would be a good sign of original suspension?

Rocket,

The connecting ring was clearly cut.

Apart from the recently replaced ribbon, it looks good to me [264

Re: Medaglia per i Liquidatori di Chernobyl

Ruiz,

I'd say that it looks pretty good: the document itself, the wear, the handwriting, etc.
Can you make a large scan of the stamp for confirmation.

Re: Falsi? Fakes? Фуфел?

Ruiz,

Could you please post a full view of the front and back, and a few pictures of the SN area taken at different angles.
At this point, I tend to believe that the SN was removed and a new number engraved in the style of a known engraver, but IMO not by him.

Re: Order of Honour n. 1560490

Luigi, McDaniel's book is now antiquated at best. It is still a nice book to have, but the information it contains is no longer up to date. The serial number range mentioned is exact, the lowest numbered Order of Honor produced is number 1463430, the last one ever manufactured was 1577929. Now, it i...

LUIGI,

This was originally an Order of the Badge of Honor. The leaves, hammer and sickle are a fake add-on.

Re: OPW II classe - n. 460195

Rocketscientist,

It is probably due to a mix of impurities and micro bubbles, at a time when large numbers of this order were required.

Re: 1° DIVISA

Hi lupo78,

This is a late-period soviet artillery captain service uniform.
Check the exact date on the back of the buttons on the jacket. It will be the last two digits of the year of production.
The cap is dated 1991.

Re: Wartime caps: identification

Seb, The way you wrote it, it sounds rather differently: -"the first one is a M55 with a square visor added for cinema, with internal stamp as a proof.": Yes, M55 no argument -"the third one is conceived to look like a field M41: it would be a M59 basis with a new visor and a M39 star.": so, here al...

Re: Wartime caps: identification

No, 3 fake caps, as he indicated, made from later material to look like older models.
True, the wording of the second one is off. It should be "1950's cap with changed visor to make it look like an M35".
