Phaleristics/Faleristics
« on: April 18, 2017, 09:39:48 PM »
Well I learn something new everyday! Thanks to a very interesting customer in Austria I have learnt that the study and research of orders of chivalry and merit is known by the term Phaleristics.He has published a book on the Nursing Faleristics of Austria which I will try and get hold of.

Hi.

Can you define 'small' for me please Barry?  Or then again perhaps that is too big a question!!!

Very Best.
Will.

Total collection somewhere in the region of 300.000 items but only about a third of it is related to medical insignia with an emphasis on Military Medical Insignia.

Hi Barry.

Thanks for that. You must have your own museum! ;)

But have you seen one of these and if so can you name it?  We have Peter flummoxed (never heard of that before.. Image below...

Sorry I don't know what it is either, as to museum, my wife thinks that I have to many, I have thinned it out a bit I think at one stage I had about 500.000 items.
