In 1986 there was a major accident at the nuclear reactor station located at Chernobyl in the Ukraine. It was one of the worst accidents ever to happen and radioactive particles were transported across the country and beyond to Scandinavia and even our own shores. Consequences from the fallout are still present today and it served notice to the world of the horrors such accidents can cause. When the accident occurred, volunteers went in to liquidate and encase the defective reactor core. They all faced extreme danger and this bravery was recognised with a medal issued to all those who helped in the clean up. An Eastern European supplier managed to get hold of a quantity of these medals complete with ribbon and suspender which we can offer now.

These are very attractive pieces produced as a gilded finish with black red and turquoise enamel. At the centre a diagram showing the atom being split into Alpha, Beta and Gamma radiation - the very essence of the nuclear reaction!

Complete with ribbon and suspender the Chernobyl medal now available for just £18.95.

Greece, Armed Forces World War II Medal 1940-41

This is an interesting medal for our growing band of collectors of war medals. An original medal issued to members of the Greek armed forces during the Second World War. These pieces should be of great interest to collectors, as due to the comparatively smaller numbers issued they are not so often seen or offered for sale! The number of pieces available is quite limited, and we are now offering them at a very reasonable price.

10 Different Early First Day Covers

We recently bought a stamp dealer out of all the older First Day Covers (FDC) that he had in stock and there were thousands of them. They date from the 1960’s and 1970’s with an occasional cover from the 1980’s. But we made sure that each cover had more than one commemorative stamp on them and many of the covers have as many as four different stamps on them. Each cover has a cache on it and it was cancelled on the first day that the stamps were issued. We are bundling them into groups of ten different covers, each with more than one stamp on each and we are going to offer them at just £9.50 a bundle. That works out to less than £1.00 a cover and these are older covers. Each bundle will be different and no one knows which covers you will get, but at only 95p each we think they are very interesting.
