A friend of mine sent this link to me. I found it interesting, but in the pictures you can see many Imperial Russian, Serbian, and Montenegrin Orders and Medals. Enjoy.

To F. Matinoff:
I am not exactly sure by what "devestation" you speak? The Bolshevik Revolution, followed by nearly 80 years of Communist Party rule, or the fires that errupt in these old palaces due to reconstruction? While I can not speak for anyone else, I can certainly state that my references to "cockroaches and rats" are people who have no interest in the merchandise, except in attempting to make a profit. In 90 years, many things can occur, including the demise of whole family lines. People pretend to be someone they are not (such as the rightful heirs of the Russian throne) in an effort to make money on items that do not belong to them, and instead should be in a museum. I believe that all items of historical importance should be shared by all, unless it rightfully belongs to a family, upon certification of their true linneage, who will make that decision. So, please do not take what I say and attempt to misinterpret it, thank you kindly.
