  1. A case in point for the old axiom: "With great mustache comes great responsibility" Awesome photo, thanks for showing! .
  2. Here are some images on cardboard taken between 1916 and 1923
  3. I have some "Hartpappe backing" photographs from during and after the war but they all without exception have the photographers studio embossed or printed on the cardboard. Also the cardboard is a different type. The cardboard backing on the eBay photograph is not legit IMO. I believe it is a modern copy.
  4. I think The initials SW or WS are not of a wife to a king or even a Grand-Duke - since the five pearl pointed crown indicates the lowest nobility rank. More likely a gift to an officer with the above initials.
  5. the first heraldic crown (Rangkrone) is a king's crown - the second with the 5 points and pearls is a German nobility crown.
  6. Hallo Walter; Meine Muttersprache ist badisch. Gruss Hardy
  7. because of the huge size - compare with the regular tunic boards
  8. I agree, it does look like Nander but with the short line across the letter it makes me think it could also be Xander. I would research both possibilities.
