    Default USSR Pins?

    Hello everybody and thank you in advance for any info you might be able to help me out with. Let me start by saying I know nothing of USSR medals, badges or decorations so I am sorry if these are obvious fakes. I have a number of different ones but wanted to start with the two that are the most different from the others. Click image for larger version.

    I believe that the one on the left is an Order of the Patriotic War Second Class (I am fairly certain that it's genuine but also pretty common), but I don't know about the other one. Someone who knows what they are talking about will probably be along soon to tell you! Sorry to not be more helpful.

ID:	634805Thank you very much for having a look. I will see if I can find additional info about "Order of the Patriotic War Second Class" online. This at least gives me starting point!

    Here are two others, The cross seems to be very poorly made but figured I would give it a go.

    The Order of the Patriotic War is a 1985 re issue.

    Sorry no idea on all the others, right outside my interests.

    Cheers, Ade.

    First is the Soviet Order of the Patriotic War, 2nd Class, 1985 issue, as stated. Perfectly authntic.
    Second is a modern copy of an Imperial Russian Jeton of some kind.
    Third is Bulgarian, I think? The green, white, red ribbon colors suggest Bulgarian to me but I can't find it anywhere.
    Fourth is unknown commemorative medal/cross on an East German suspension. "Gunzrsdorf" returns absolutley nothing on Google. ???

    I think the fourth one says "Cunersdorf": cunersdorf - Google Search

    Just a thought, but could the eagle be some sort of graduation medal, or a copy of one?

    It most likely is Erno. The quality on it seems kind of poor, so I suspect it's a replica.

    Does the writing on it look like Georgian to you? Maybe it is just stylized cyrillic script. I can't read either!

    It looks like "тх" in stylized Cyrillic cursive.
