    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Hi Gunny,

    Youíre correct, the ribbon is incorrect. The proper ribbon is pictured below. A rather common post war communist era decoration issued by the bucket load. Itís a good thing you did not overpay for it. I hope to visit this market in several months, but not with any expectation of finding anything. The golden years were the 1960ís- 80ís, but things have been pretty well picked clean since then.

    Regards,
    Tony

    Thanks for the reply Tony and as for Hala Targowa there was very little there apart from stall after stall of TR fakes!...
