Can anyone help identify these?

Many thanks

Hi Luke, these are all badges, not really fo interest to medals collectors, they were made from light alloys in massive series, unless very old, usually worth a few pence as they say. Of course collectors of badges look at them differently, there are catalogues that list some of the more valuable one's but I do not have them...sorry oa

Thanks for the very informative site. I'm a WWImedal-collector and I was thinking about getting into Sovjet awards as well. But after getting a lot of reports on extremely rising prices and fakes I think I'll pass. Seems like Sovjet awards will go the same way as German WWII-awards: market flooded with fakes thus originals only collectable at higher prices for a smaller number of collectors...
Yes counterfeits are a problem...what can one say...

I am a part-time collector, and am looking for several medals that I had difficulty finding when living in Lviv, Ukraine and Krakow, Poland this past summer. I am seeking to add to my collection the Defence of Kiev medal as well as the defence of Sevestapol and the Defence of Stalingrad. I fully understand the problem with fakes with both Belgrade, Odessa and Sevestapol, but I would also eventually like to add Belgrade...I quite literally have all of the other cities. Do you have Kiev, Belgrade and Sevestapol and how much would you ask for them? (I am not concerned with variation, just that they are in mint good condition and real). Thanks

Hi Ryan, sorry I do not sell at all basically, I need to enlarge my collection! oa

Hello, I wasrecetly in Russia and bought what looks to be authentic, The Order Of The Red Banner. Could youtell me some marks to look for to see if its authentic or not. Also where would i beable to purchase a NKVD or GRU badge?

Send me a goo scan will try to advise you, but there are several variations and much depends on the serial number. NKVD and GRU badges are heavily faked but you can still get them fairly easily in Ukraine or Moldova, or from US dealers, I would not risk ebay. oa

Recently I bought an Order of Friendship from Eugene Rabkin of Russian Glory in Brooklyn NY. I have not received it yet and am worried that Eugene Rabkin is not a reliable trader. Can you help do you know of Rabkin and does he work for Russian Glory?

Thank you
