  4. Yes, there is a French officer. I think that person was part from Henri Berthelot's French Military Mission in Romania.
  5. Hi Bayern, Thank you for noticing the typo mistake. It is human. As interesting fact -few months ago Australia Mint printed new 50 Dollars notes It took more then 6 months till a collector discovered a spelling mistake, which was repeated three times in the small print (noticeable only with high magnification) The Australia Mint already printed 400 000 000 notes valued 2 Billions Dollars Because of the high volume this note will be not a "rare" bird The Spoke person for the Mint stated that it will not be removed from circulation, however the next print will be with the correct spelling I know it is with C not S I have seen recent makes of the Cejalvo Firm of mainly Spanish Orders, however the quality is not as good as the items made by the same firm long time ago Regards
  6. The then prince Carol firing a French Chauchat LMG near to him ,a french officer
  7. Hello, Bundespolizei is the Austrian Police , and Hoherer polizeidienst means Superior Police service the Upper class of Police functionaires, The badge is probably destined to use with civilian dress . regarding the German connection , Its true that in Germany exists a Bundespolizei but it was created in 2005 from the Old Bundesgrenzschutz . and the badge looks older
  8. Gentlemen ,Cejalvo with C and not S is a old Spanish manufacturer of orders and medals I suggest a visit to the site www condecoracionescejalvo. es /
  9. Boris is certainly wearing old style star. Look how dark are wings around the head in the center, they are dark (red) color like on old designs, not grey color like on new star.
  10. I am looking to sell this here on GMIC and was wondering what a fair price is to ask. I don't want to give it away, but I am not looking to sell higher than market value either. The sooner the better.
  11. That's great news! Thank you so much! I was looking to sell this on GMIC because this has always been the place where people seem to have a genuine interest in medals. What would be a fair price to ask for this? I don't want to give it away, but I am not looking to sell it for more than market value either. I would rather sell it sooner than later.
  12. Yesterday
  13. I believe, but am not 100% certain, it is a code for the department number of the product approval unit (Prufstelle)
  14. Dear all, Does anyone know where I could obtain 16mm wide UK Order of Merit ribbon (military type)? It would be a miniature type ribbon I am looking for. Many thanks, Pierce
  15. Hello gentlemen, this photo is in my collection for a longer time now. Unfortunately, I was not able to identify the orders / awards which the portrayed gentleman is showing. Also I am not very good when it comes to read writings like this - does anyone have a clue what is written on the bottom of the photo? Besides a close-up of the awards, I have also attached a more detailed scan of the bicorn and the sabre. Maybe those help. To me the uniform looks more like one for an official rather than for a military officer? Thank you in advance! Kind regards, Leonard

  18. His papers are at the National Archives under WO 339/89342. They are not digitized but you should be able to find a researcher who will digitally copy them for you for around £20 (depending on the number of pages). I would recommend Kevin Asplin (KevinAsplin@aol.com). I have used him for over 20 years and found that he does the copying quickly and at a very reasonable cost. Don't use the National Archives copy service - it will cost a fortune!
  19. Dear forumites, I'd like to show a Saxon medal bar and its ribbon bar I bought some years ago in Germany. Cheers, C
  20. Very nice bar and you're correct. it's hard to find one mounted like this at all, never mind post 1934
  21. Other stuff from the Great War. Rifle, revolver, sabres, shells etc. Unfortunately I don't know names since it's not my area.
