Belgian FNC-NSB and Mutuality medals

#1

Todays arrived Belgian unofficial medals ..

Medal for ' wederzijdse Mutualitiet' .. 1920's Socialist Union medal ..
and two variants of honorary cross of the Belgian WW1 old combattants organisation..
the NSB in dutch- FNC for french speaking part of Belgium.
Not to confuse with the NAZI fascist Dutch NSB in WW2!!

The larger in the grade of officer , the smaller is pretty rare ..never seen it in the small size before ..

I guess that when you hold these Belgian medals in your hands they do display weight and quality - on the photos they always remind me of those cheapskate Goede replicas.

I hear you ..These crosses do look that indeed ..theyre one pieced .. but at least have a better feel as the Gödes .
Guilding is gold etc ..not the simichromed aluminium crap. ;)
The knights orders though are of a different category / make .. theyre real nice in silver ..and not one piece stuff.
These unofficial medals are cheap buys .. but a Leopold one or two order or a crown order is qualitywise a real medal ..
I like their versions of the croix de guerre a lot ..far nicer than the french versions.
You often find bars with mixed Belgian and French orden ..ww1 mostly .

Saw a real nice Belgian miniature of a officer in the order of the crown on Ebay ..
Massive 14k gold with 6 diamonds placed in there .. very rare stuff .
Propably up for auction tomorrow or so ..
