    Great stars guys,
    i wouldnt mind, putting one of them in my colletion....
    Darren,

    I have seen one listed, I will try and find the dealers site again for you. It is the BB&Co and looks to be original. Problem is the price was outrageous at 250 or so I think anyway!

    darrenj40, jock auld is correct, the price on these stars vary wildly from around 90 to 250 right up to 1000! (on a Bulgarian website)......theres a nice original one (German version) on E-Bay at the moment for 95. Talking about the German version, i have recently unearthed more information on the popular maker of the star 'BB & Co', they are not a Berlin based firm as previously suggested, but it stands for 'Binder Bruder & Company' from Ludenscheid.

    Thanks jock and oradour, for your encouragement and
    for your help,i have been offline for 6 days, and just send off an order for some soviet medals...and you know the saying " So many medals, So little money".
    And i am sure, when the time comes, to selecting a Gillipoli Star, for the collection, i can rely on you two gentlemen, for guidance...
    thanks again guys, for the pistures and the information..

    No harm in bumping an old thread I suppose;

    I have always liked these for historical and aesthetic reasons and have had one of the Turkish original (aka Nasty ) type since my youth which had some (what I realise now, decent) finish that I cleaned off (vandalised) in my teens thinking I was "restoring" it

    I have now added a German (nicer) version and show it here now for reference. I was holding out for a real silver one but this one which is silver plated tombak was too good to resist
    It has a small shadow under the enamel at the 7 O-clock position but the enamel is completely intact and the shadow is only obvious under magnification. There is a slight show of the tombak base metal on the high points especially the ridge of the crescent moon which I think adds to the overall appearance.

    I am pleased with the addition and think it will be the only one but realise that I now have to dig out the zinc original from my boxes and if anyone can point me towards a decent original ribbon I would appreciate it.

    Regards

    Mark

    Here are a couple of stars from my collection, one German and one Turkish (with ribbon). Sorry that they need a little cleaning. Click image for larger version.
