Default Diplomatic Miniature Medal Bar?

Not too sure what i have here. Medals are in there original box, one Belgium, one Russian and two British and i presume these were awarded to a diplomat?

Judging from the order and the decoation present it does not make any sense?

100% wrong for a English recipiant and not correct for a forgien recipeant.

If this person was a Commonwelath citizen the order owuld be the

OBE,QQM then the two forgien orders.

If a forgien diplomat then the order, no matter what county he or she was from, is not correct

How could he get the QQM (1953) before the GV OBE

So most likely just a bunch a minis stuck together and put into a spare high steet jewlers box.


No way that this jewler was making/selling minis there product was all high end silverware and jewlery.


And one other thing the OBE would not be awarded to a diplomat it would be the CMG.

Also the Clasp looks much newer than the Medals.

Put together - it wouldn't cost much - for theatrical or 'cosplay' use would be my guess. As stated, the mix and order of wearing makes no sense.

Looks like an Italian medal and a Polish medal . So possibly an Italian diplomat in England as the Italian medal is first? Rob


Perhaps clandestine civillian wartime activity !!

No sorry just wishfull thinking or maybe you made a trip up north and sampled some of our now legal wacky-tabaky


The minis are also almost all correct and are

1) Belgium ~ Order of the Crown (on the wrong ribbon)
2) UK ~ Queen Elizabeth II Coronation Medal (1953)
3) Russian Empire ~ Order of Saint Stanislaus (untill1917)
4) UK ~ Order of the British Empire (1917~1922 version)


None of these are normal diplomatic orders except the Belgium Order of the Crown

I could find no way to make the present order work.

Google the name and the box and you will see that they where silver and goldmiths as mini was something you would get from your local tailor's shop not a high-steeet jewler/
