LavricCat,

You do realize, that some of the items on your display are not genuine, right?

How to display Soviet awards

Alexei,
Which pieces? I'm having a hard time making out the details.

Nota Bene, you must be joking! You can't possibly see any detail in there, unless you mean different shades of red on the left and on the right which could be just the light.

No reason to arm-wrestle for it ! It's not for sale(or may be after my soul and before firearms and Lavric).
And I really want "XX Years of RKKA" but do not have extra $600.

No, I do not.
Which of them are not genuine??? My Collection of Awards pictures from military photos on webshots

And question about this in particular: May,2006. I've paid $70.00+$5.00(S&H). I am sure, this one is genuine!
What can You say?
Thank You,
Yefim.

Thank You.

Hi Yefim,
With Nota Bene being so cryptic, I thought I would post this before he comes in and destoys my beautiful theory. Indeed, the only thing I could see from the large photo was some disparity in the red enamel strip on the two Labor Glories you showed. I think it might help if you could take a scan or a photo of both medallions together under the same lighting conditions. Not that I am an expert, just a thought.

No, I am not kidding, ehhh... joking. Even from this small picture I can tell that some items are fakes. For instance the 1928 Marksmanship badge (star with a soldier and a machine gun) - 100% fake, you can tell from the glow.

Possible fakes:

Russian MVD 2nd class (almost certainly a fake);
KGB badge (same);
Voroshilov Marksman (same);
Military Academy Badge;
One of the WWII Excellence badges.

Maybe some more, I just don't want to strain my eyes.

Oh, if the owner would post some detailed pictures of the items I have mentioned we can all see if I was correct about them.... or not.

Alexei

Sergei,

I would only be happy if I am proven wrong.

Alexei is the most respected, knowledgeble and experienced person on this Forum.
All of us should appreciate his assistance, advise and opinion.
It is just my opinion about some "smart remarks" from some people.
May be I am wrong, but it is just what I feel.

Lavric,

If you'd like my help in getting your images online, please PM me. I'll send you my email address you can send very large images to and I'll get them "forum ready" for you. Looks like we are going to need to move this thread into the Fake Alert group
