  1. I got this nice medal last month. The ribbon is not correct; its to wide. More Informations here: http://antique-photos.com/en/homepage/151-awardsdatabase-en/weimarawards-en/812-german-atlantic-meteor-expedtition-1925-1927-commemorative-medal.html The case was made by Zeh& Schien in Hanau.
  2. And here a very very veryveryvery very rare award document for a honor badge of the KWG. Five days later, Harnack was died. Regards Red
  3. All of them looked manipulated! Most of them will be a (self-)gilded 3rd. Class.
  4. Thats right! The stripe you not find on higher grades of this Order. Look here: (Honorary Knight-Commander) for a foreigner.
  5. Well, I found one. See on the lower right side:

    Grosskreuz BVK

    I agree, that this is a classic Schuler & Kun grand cross. The ribbon, star, case and award document are lost?
  7. B.t.w.: The Royal Victorian Orders have a delivery number on their backside, no matriculation number. Therefore, it would not be possible to find a recipient using this number.
  8. Now, I find the Statutes by my self. Statutes.pdf
  9. B.t.w.: This class official dont called 2nd class. Its called: Cross of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany See all of them in several languages here: http://ordensmuseum.de/bundesverdienstorden/ordensstufen-im-internationalen-sprachgebrauch/ Regards Red
  10. Its an extra class: Der Hausorden besteht aus folgenden Klassen: dem Ehrenkreuze l. Klasse, dem Ehrenkreuze Il. Klasse mit Eichenlaub (Il A), dem Ehrenkreuze Il. Klasse (Il B), dem Offizierehrenkreuze, dem Ehrenkreuze III. Klasse, dem Ehrenkreuze IV. Klasse 1. Abteilung (IV A), dem Ehrenkreuze IV. Klasse 2. Abteilung (IV B).
  11. Here I can show you my golden Lippe-Detmold Houseorder Honor Cross 2nd Class with oak leaf. A nice little big beauty. Made by Carl Buesch, Hannover, reissued after reworking by Godet, Berlin, in the years 1911 to 1912. I hope you like it!

  12. Since I have been able to buy an original engraved anniversary mug, and probably not in the future, I have decided for a different solution. After a long search, I bought a nearly identical mug and had it hand engraved by an engraver like the anniversary mug after the original. Now this mug stands as a replacement for the original not to be procured in my showcase.
