    Wow, super stuff.
    Many questions...
    It'd be nice to read who was awarded the award, and how it came about.
    The years, the makers, todays values, how many were made/awarded...
    Nice thread Yugo

    Polish Partisan Cross. It was awarded to organizers, commanders and members of partisan units who fought against Germans on a Polish territory, or to Poles who fought in partisan units in the USSR, Yugoslavia and France, or to foreigners, who fought in partisan units on a Polish territory. It could be given also to cities or villages, that distinguished themselves in supporting the partisan movement. 55,000 were awarded. It's value is 40-70$ depending on version, quality etc.

    Here's another one from SFR Yugoslavia.

    Order of Bravery - 120,636 awarded. You can get it for 10-20$ anytime, depending on quality and serial number.

    Here's the picture from my collection. The number on the back is 33,589 so it's relatively low.

    BUMP!

    Was reading some info about Jimmy Page, the guitarist of Led Zeppelin and I saw he was awarded with the Order of the British Empire. Never seen before how the order looks but it's definately among the most beautiful.
