A (partial?) phliatelic treatment of (four of) the awards of The Great Leader.

This is one reason I found these stamps so interesting, since they seem to include the dates of the awards.

Just to summarize:

Mongolia - Sukhbaatar - 1953
Malagasy Republic - National Order - 1985
USSR - Lenin - 1987
Cuba - Playa Giron - 1987

Re: The awards of Kim Il-Sung

I've spent some time looking for his Soviet citations but to no avail. I've tried his real names, pseudonyms and Russian/Korean variations - Nothing.

Not only is it almost impossible to research the reality of what he was awarded but seeing them in wear is out of the question.

Re: The awards of Kim Il-Sung

Got this freshly off Pyongyang!

Haven't seen this before either, so...


Anyone else having a sudden urge of getting these kind of glasses?

Re: The awards of Kim Il-Sung

That doesn't really give us too much to go on, other than the DPRK really love their photoshop.

The picture isn't even clear enough to be certain if they are Hero Of Republic or Hero Of Labour stars.

Re: The awards of Kim Il-Sung

I know, but it's a nice addition. It looks like it's in the 90's, so I don't think He was awarded "any" more hero-stuff than this.

Re: The awards of Kim Il-Sung

Any news on the list of his awards? OK, I can guess the answer, but I just wanted to ask.

I've only gotten the response that it is huge and not quite, well, under control. Some department is getting the full list, but I haven't really set it to real time priority... ;)

We probably won't get it in a while, until I go over there and bring it home myself... But better late than never, aye?

Re: The awards of Kim Il-Sung

I would expect the very first award may well have been the Soviet Medal "For Victory Over Japan".

As "Eternal President" doesn't he still get all the latest commemoratives from the state too?

"A medal lies next to Kim Il Sung's body "Medal "For the Victory over Japan"" awarded to him by the USSR."

It's placed beside him in the Kususan Palace of the Sun, apparently.

He was awarded the titles of Generalissimo of the DPRK, DPRK Hero (three times), and Labour Hero which clears up the unclear image.

Re: The Awards Of Kim Il-Sung.

Here is a photograph of Kim Il-Sung during the Soviet Occupation Of Korea. It looks like he's just been awarded this Red Banner.
