Thanks I will have a look...

Hi... I am just wondering if you are able to help me identify a Russian / Soviet medal / order that I have? Your specialist help would be appreciated as I have tried to do this myself and come to a dead end. If you contact me directly on my e-mail address I can reply and send you a picture.

Thank you.
Hi feel free to send me a scan...

Dear Sir:
I am collector of mining medal. I am interested in obtain a "Restoration of Donbass Coal Mines" medal. I have seen many forgeries in Internet. Seeing your Web page, I am convinced that you will distinguish the authentic ones perfectly. Have you one for sale?
Sorry, I only exchange, am currently looking for a 20 year RKKA, also forged often enough. There is no way of telling from a scan and if anyone says they can do that, then good luck to them.
sorry cannot be of more help,

Any plans to properly document Russian Federation Orders and Medals in the near future? To a westerner like me who is trying to collect them, accurate information is extremely hard to come by and I find myself buying unofficial pieces from the multitude of organizations giving them out. Maybe you can direct me somewhere? The official Russian government web site only lists a portion of what is currently out there... Thank you.

I've been a soviet medal collector for circa 15 years, albeit not so much recently.

Your award group #17 caught my interest, especially the
RB 5th award. It doesn't match Durov's type 4 var 1, which
he maintains was the only #5 produced.

Your example appears to be a type 5, not sure on the variant, but monetnyj dvor on two lines.

What's the story on this RB #5 type 5? Is it genuine?

My interest is more than academic, as I have four RB #5's,
2 of each type, 2 in groups, coincidentally, both pilots.
And one of the my single pieces reseaches to yet another

I have looked on the internet for any information on this
RB #5 type, but no luck.

Any information you could provide would be appreciated.

I have a medal which is identical to the irreproachable service in the armed forces of the USSR 20 years. Even the text on the back is the same. But the medal is a gold color, with a red star. I cant find it described anywhere. Have you ever heard of one of these?

hi there!
great site, very informative! i know you're probably want to avoid ebay like the plague but theres a defence of sevastopol medal on there at the minute (today is 04/10/08) its auction number is: 230288817639 and it looks quite original to me. i noticed you are looking for one but going off the prices you have published on this site i think its massively overpriced! having said all that though, im wondering if the chernobyl cleanup medal that the same guy is selling is real (the enamal looks wrong to me as does the bar holding the ribbon!) anyway, i thought i'd let you know so you can at least have a look!
kind regards
Hello, thanks for the nice words. As to determining authenticity from a scan, especially from ebay, impossible. You have odds on chances of buying a very good forgery unless you take from a reputable orders trader (see my links). My prices are on the low side, I have not updated them recently..for example order of Lenin with document from Armemia did not seel twice as the reserve price was not met (highest bid was under 2300 USD). The Chernobyl will be original, they were not faked, its not even an official medal anyway.

I have been collecting Soviet era items since I spent several years in Moscow and surrounding parts beginning in 1992. It is a hobby that I can only afford to indulge in on periodically since I am only a lowly professor. I have a wish list now that includes a medal For Distinguished Military Service 1st class (though I see you don't have one up for exchange). However, should you come across one, what would be a fair price? At the same time, I did notice a Service to the Motherland and Friendship of Peoples. These are also on my list. Now I don't have much to exchange with other than a couple of R* and R8 items that I can't part with because they were given to me personally by the owner. However, I've been to your website many times and though I've never inquired about buying something directly, it appears to me that you are not the eBay money-grubbing type so I can trust that you would only ask a fair price.
Please let me know what you think and should you want photos of the items I can't let go, I will be happy to take pictures and forward them to you.
Thank you in advance,
Hello Philippe, indeed I am not an ebayer but a simple collector, I would love to see what you have and chat about your needs to see if I can help somehow,
