I have couple of guides only one in English.

The best I have found is 'Bulgarian Communist Titles Orders & Medals 1945 - 2002' (assuming you are interested in the communist era items only)

Authors : Boyan Savov & Angel Garbatchkov

ISBN : 954-91123-2-2

It list's all the different medals, orders and title's in colour with information about them.

However it does not mention the different types of variations available, issue numbers, and which medals came in presentatiopn cases or not.

Bulgarian reference guides have been listed in this thread.

Good Luck with your collecting

Mark

Gentlemen,

The book Mark is referring to ('Bulgarian Communist Titles Orders & Medals 1945 - 2002' Authors : Boyan Savov & Angel Garbatchkov) is scaled down version of Todor Petrov's book.

That's the best reference on Bulgarian awards, especially on Royal ones.

Printing quality is top, information is the most complete I've seen. The book is massive and is well worth $100 or so price.

I have a copy that was presented to me by the author - Professor Pavlov, with his inscription.

Guys,

Please don't forget that links to commercial sites are not allowed here. This information should be PM'd.
