Instituted in 1942? & known maker R Souval

(CS103) A Cased Azad Hind Award being the 3rd Class Issue in its Brown Case of Issue with the gold tiger's embossed head to the lid. This is not the post war type bu the wartime. The case has the ususal handling wear and tear and is opened by a catch fitting to the front. Inside the case, to the underside of the lid, which is white silk, it has Rudolf Souval's name and company address. The purple velvet base has a cut out to take the star and ribbon. The pin on star itself is of standard multi-construction with a silver tiger's head on a gilt disc, on an 8 point radiated silver star that has Souval's trademark again to the reverse. This very rare award is hardly seen nowadays and seldom encountered cased. Sorry I Am Sold

(P84) A Rare example of the Azad Hind Breast Star. The star has been the subject of confusion for many years. It is my belief that this is a post 1945 issue manufactured by the firm of Souval after the end of the war, but this is a private view of mine and not shared by the majority of dealers and collectors, (if you are of this view, you will get a very good bargain as these are in the region of `1500.00 !). The badge has a nice gilt central disc on an 8 pointed radiated star with a nice gilt tiger's head to the centre. The reverse has a nice pin fixing applied with a central disc affixed to the middle. The disc has no manufacturer's name as often is encountered on these awards. The star is slightly toned but still a superb example of a rare award. Priced as per my opinion, post 1945.

(N7) An Azad Hind Silver Award being a mid war example. The medal has gone a grey zinc with only traces of the original silver finish intact. The medal loop is silver but unmarked. The award comes complete with a piece of original ribbon. Given with swords for bravery, and without for merit, this example is a merit award. In very good condition.
