  4. Thank you, Andy. I collect old photographs. I have a CAB of Leichtenstern and I want to post it on Wikipedia. So, I try to write a short biographical article about him. I hope Wikipedia will accept it. Leichtenstern must be a relevant person. I am not sure if he is. One of his brothers was a well known physician. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Otto_Michael_Ludwig_Leichtenstern Hermann
  5. Thank you Johan. It´s really a big job to look thrue all the matriklar and make it searchable. When i looked thrue them for all 'Thai citizens it took me some time and i think i missed some anyway just because it was hard to read the names sometimes. Its easier with the order of Serafime.. there all names in wikiepedia in a list and they are not so many... I really hope you will finnish this project, im very interested in it. I know some people in KMO, Kungl. Maj:ts Orden, and i will ask them if i can go there and look thrue the Matriklar in real , so to say... I would like to finnish my list of thai citizens and try to keep it up to date. After 1974 it becomes more easy because of the reform of the swedish orders. It´s only one order to look at.
  6. Very informative info Brian - thank you ! I wasn't on the forum for a while … or a bit longer .. If we are talking about Freikorps Caspari , I have few pieces from one of his former officers ( I bought them from his son ! ) - they are from WW I and WW II era , nothing from his Freikorps time … I was told he was participating in this particular Freikorps . His name is Rudolf Sies and he was very interesting man - after his Second World War he was President of the organization of German porcelain makers and one of the highest managers at Huetschenreuther Manufactur .. I'm sorry it's bit off topic .. here you have his few belongings .. I also have somewhere packed his WW I officer's shoulder board. best Kornel

  11. Fleece from Louis XV of France (stolen 1792) with the legendary French Blue Diamond, which was most likely (i think it's already proven but I am not shure) the diamond from which the Hope-Diamond was cut out REPLICA:
  12. … Plus the fact that the seller (pseudonym KORSHUN on eBay) did not even bother answering me when I questioned him about all that ! Does anyone know him ? Should this guy be put on the buyers' black list ?
  13. Hi, your new purchase looks very nice, and thanks for the kind comments, does your posted image just show the complete medal or just the ribbons, I can't seem to open the entire image? Regards Hi Gordon, thanks for the kinds words, in hand, they really do look as amazing as on the images, regards

  15. Thank you both for the information. No matter how hard I look it doesn't look like a scarf. I thought it was a body with its legs in the air!
  16. And by the way, the use of "Statskalendern" and "Hofcalendern" is of great help when it´s difficult to read the names in the old Matrikel books. Some years of Statskalendern is available at runeberg.org and I have a few earlier ones myself. But so far I only have the 1817, 1845 and 1868. Good thing that they arent so expensive.
  17. Thank you Micke for your help. Reading the Thai names is pretty difficult and so are some of the other names in the Matriklar as you say. I'm working on a project that includes digitalizing the all the awardees of Swedish orders of the sword, North star and Wasa and make it searchable in a easy way. Nice website you have, I have seen it before and you have some very interesting information and pictures.
  18. The long service medal the king have are the Chakra Mala Medal - Medal for Long Service and Good Conduct (Military and Police). The last medal are the King Rama IX Rajaruchi Medal (Gold Class). The king also have the Red Cross Medal of Appreciation (First Class). But i have never seen him wear it. The medals from the Thai red cross are ranked last in the Thai ODM, Orders Decoration och Medal, system and are given out by the Queen Sirkit.
  19. I don't have more photos of the cap unfortunately; it's available for €260 from a seller in Ireland. As it seems there are red flags I'll pass on it. I collect on a very limited budget and literally can't afford to be burned.
  20. Hi JohanH As you know its hard to read and understand the wrighting in the Matriklar..... I looked up the commanders in chief of the Royal Thai Navy. The one who was commander in chef in 1965 was Admiral, Prince, Kanchitpon Apakorn between 1964-1966.
  21. Alex K, Nice awards. Thanks for showing us pictures of them. Regards, Gordon
  22. I am seeking information about Karl Leichenstern, b. 29 May 1847, major general in the Bavarian army, 1899-1901 commander of 10th Königlich Bayerische Infanterie-Brigade. I only know that his father was Ludwig Leichtenstein, d. 1866 at fortress Rosenberg, lieutenant colonel. The Prussian Maschine doesn’t list him, perhaps he retired before 1914. I found an entry of him from 1906 where he was categorized “zur Disposition”. Kind Regards Hermann
  23. Friend, I am honored to discover this article, and I am very happy that you have been active in this forum for so many years. I have just purchased a cross from the Kingdom of Hungary with a mini breast star.
