Default Bulgarian Awards

Hello,

Would like to share my Bulgarian purchases from 2013. It will be piecemeal as I didn't have time to prepare all of them. I would like to thank Lubo (member) who helped me with first the understanding of the awards and in obtaining the awards.

Hope you all enjoy as I don't see that many Bulgarian awards posted so everyone can see as examples or ask questions from them.

First up are my favorites which are the Honour Badge for Encourgement of Philanthropy. Ladies cross II class first......

Thanks McCulloh.

Thanks Nigel. I like the design on the cases and the enamel work on the awards. But don't worry, 57 is still my primary area of collecting.

Ok. Next - Decoration of Army Drivers Badge - 4th version without crown and made after September 1944.

Decoration of the Infantry - Awarded to Officers. It has a stylized shield, enamelled in the colours of the national flag and Tzar Boris III monogram.

I'm just showing these awards and will not show the reverse unless someone asks for it.
