January,
You are too modest . I've only just noticed, in the first photo, the bottom left corner, is that a pair of Hero Stars hanging off something like a pelican beak or animal horns?

Thank you!

Good catch--the Gold Stars are repros (the HSL actually has the same serial as Doc Riley's), and it's an ashtray. I bought them orignally as filler, but couldn't justify the idea of putting fakes into the same display case as real awards, so they ended up being part of an ashtray. I was going to put the HSU on a uniform, but the screwpost fell apart.

I think that the birds might be hummingbirds. Could just as easily be pelicans, though.

LavricCat,

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

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.
