Hello & a Happy NY to everyone,

Im new to the forum and thought it would be good to say hello.

As an intro, the collecting seed was planted nearly 10 years ago when I visited Moscow and then worked in Uzbekistan for a year.

Hope you guys (M & F) will be able to help me out so I may benefit from your wisdom and carefully expand my collection.

This may not be the best place to post this, but there wasn't a New Members' Section.

Thanks Note Bene for the tip to join the Forum

Mark.

When it comes to Soviet and other communist country medals and orders, you can do no better than this forum. I'm sure if it weren't for this forum, many of us would be totally ignorant of so many aspects of this great hobby.

Welcome and enjoy!

Thanks for the welcome.

I decided to collect Russian Orders & Medals as a passtime when I was in Tashkent working after I came across a set of 14 Soviet postcards dating from 1973 which depicted 10 orders & 4 medals.

Since returning to the UK I bought the 'Orders & Medals Bible' and found out there were mant more so I decided to try and supplement my collection based on the contents of the book. I know there are some I can only wish to own, but that's part of the mystery and fun of collecting I suppose....you never know what might turn up.....

Mark.

Hey MarkE,
This is a great forum Mark. I check in at least five times a week. The moderators are so very competent and helpful, the contributing members are a wealth of information offering diverse viewpoints and it covers so much ground that I cant think of an area of interest that has not been talked about before.

I was a medal collector when I found the forum (almost three years ago) but as the market for medals changed my collecting interests did also. I sold the medals and found WWII general's uniforms & visors!!!

The best part is that as my collecting interest changed the forum was there to help me be a better collector, make contacts among other collectors and enjoy my hobby even more. I hope you enjoy your time here. Thanks Clete

Mark,

Welcome to the forum! I think you'll find that this is a great place to discuss and learn more about Soviet orders & medals. (I certainly have!)

The best part is what we all have in common: an interest & joy in furthering our knowledge of the hobby!

Again, welcome.

- Sean
