Re: Piatto decorativo-quadretto sportivo-portasigarette

Hi cive05,

The plate is a simple souvenir from Kiev. The decor is made from dried straw.
The Hockey plate is a souvenir made for the 1979 Hockey World Championship.
The cigarette case is a modern item for tourists and has no interest whatsoever.

Re: Red Banner 211

Andreas,

Strange mintmark and unconventional handwriting. Can you get better pictures of that piece, including enlargements?

Re: Distintivi per Specialista nell MVD

Guys,

According to the information on the page shown by Sergio, it should be the other type of badge, without the wings.

Re: Onorevole pilota collaudatore

I have never observed a single instance of the round raised MMD mintmark on any genuine air title (Military Pilot, Military Navigator, Civilian Pilot, Civilian Navigator, Military Test Pilot, Military test Navigator).

Re: Onorevole pilota collaudatore

These are all the illustrations I have of a genuine test Pilot badge (SN 32) other than SN265 shown above:

What do you call "regular mint mark"?

Re: Onorevole pilota collaudatore

Guys,

As far as I know, the round MMD mintmark has never been stamped, it was always struck in relief.
So IMO, that is one terminal argument against this badge.

I don't like it, but suspensions are not my forte.

Re: ALFABETO CIRILLICO e aiuto per Traduzioni. (Translation HELP)

Ruiz,

It may also be due to the date of award (the booklet looks quite recent). If it is post-WW2, it will not be available on Pomyat Naroda.

The back of the Stalingrad medal in your original post is definitely NOT the same as what you are showing just above: it had a fully stamped ring, whereas your Stalingrad medal has a soldered ring. The lighting isn't to blame here.

Re: Valutazione medaglie

All your medals are original. But in the future, make sure to post both the front AND back of each medal/order.

IMO, $100 would be generous, given the wear of the piece.

Re: What is this ?

Ruiz,

It is as Seb said, as fairly scarce commemorative goblet of the 10th anniversary of the Soviet Union. Originally, it had a lid, bit that piece is missing in 99.9% of the cases.

Very likely, it is the Infantry Leader's Officer's Badge that comes in 3 classes.

Re: Libretto delle onorificenze del capitano Mihail Š. Kondratenko

Hi Drugo,

I think you got the wrong guy. The one in the booklet got his first award (ORS) somewhere around April~May 1945, and he was a Captain, whereas the Nagradnoy List refers to a Colonel with a whole s**tload of awards.

Re: Libretto delle onorificenze del capitano Mihail Š. Kondratenko

Drugo,

The corrections are so obvious and poorly made that I am inclined to think that it is all genuine.
As to the major suppliers of fake and/or doctored booklets, I'd place them clearly to the West of Russia, namely in Ukraine and the Baltic states.
