    Romanian awards are very nice and reasonably priced. IMO Romanian decorations are second in quality only to their Soviet counterpart.

      As a retired policeman, my interest is in the DDR Polizei apparatus and organs of the MdI and MfS. I am also interested in German law enforcement agencies and uniforms in general from 1914-1990. These agencies include the Volkspolizei, Ordnungspolizei, Sicherheitspolizei, Zollschutz, Postschutz, Bahnschutz, etc. I think the magnitude and complexity of the German Police is interesting, reaching into all aspects of German life.

      I am always interested in buying nice Polizei items. [email protected]



        Too bad that there isn't the option for "Albania" in the poll, I guess we the minority get discriminated


          I voted Soviet Union and North Vietnam, saw the italics......and realized

          Don't believe everything you read on the internet, that's how WWI got started.


            I have collected The Military equipment and uniforms of the DDR since I first bought a East German Assault Pack at a Leatherhead Street market in Spring 1990 , my sickness has developed from there , to were I stand today wearing the stuff in fields in the summer months here in the UK since 1993!! .... .
            I also collect soviet stuff with the same effect to me as my DDR Sickness ....................... .

                I collect state security/intelligence items (KGB, Stasi, KDS, etc.) from the entire Warsaw Pact.


                  Soviet awards for now but will probably branch off into Bulgaria.


                    For my part, I collect Soviet awards and East Bloc hats and helmets of any kind.

                    But I prefer anything related to the Soviet Union and the DDR.

                      I was able to pick up some nice Soveit medals last weekend at the show in Ottawa. Got my eye on a nice Nevsky!!


                        Do you know any show here in Montréal this year ???


                          I believe there is a militaria/gun/medal show in Longueuil on the 14th of November.




                            My name is Adrian Smyczyński. I'm 16 years old and I'm collecting awards for 2 years. I don't restrain myself to any countries, types of medals etc. I collect ALL awards, and I'm also collecting for my satisfaction and artistic purpose. I think every award is uniqe, beautiful, and has an own intresting story of origin.

                                Forgot to add. This is the only Polish Warsaw Pact era item I have. Don't know anything about it other than ..... it's a hat :
