  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. Hi, I m looking to download the statutes of the Royal Victorian Order, but cant find it everywhere. It can be a version of the 1980ths years. Does anybody knows something?
  5. Thats right! The stripe you not find on higher grades of this Order. Look here: (Honorary Knight-Commander) for a foreigner.
  6. Well, I found one. See on the lower right side:
  7. Red Eagle

    Grosskreuz BVK

    I agree, that this is a classic Schuler & Kun grand cross. The ribbon, star, case and award document are lost?
  8. 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.
  9. Now, I find the Statutes by my self. Statutes.pdf
  10. 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
  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! More detailed pictures at http://ordensmuseum.de/historische-oe/fuerstlich-lippischer-hausorden/ Regards Red
  12. 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).
  13. During my research in the GStA PK, I came across to a nearly unknown badge, which was awarded by Wilhelm II in his exile. Since this badge has not yet been published extensively, I have written an article (yes in german language, sorry) about it, to show the Gorgo-Badge in public. If you interest in the Gorgo-Badge look to my article on my website: http://ordensjournal.ordensmuseum.de Greetings Red
  14. 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.
  15. I think I found him: Cameron Fromanteel Cobbold, 1st Baron Cobbold, PC 29 January 1963 (GCVO) Lord Chamberlain to the Queen and Chancellor of the Royal Victorian Order
  16. Well, I think we have dont look for a Chancellor of the Exchequer; we have to look for a Chancellor of the Royal Victorian Order. It´s not the same, isnt it?
  17. Can anyone tell me who have signed my showed above document as the chancellor?
  18. Here I can show you some of the prototypes of the Long Service Crosses for the Bundeswehr, wich was designed in 1964, but never realised. Does anyone have some more or other samples? Regards Red
  19. I put all my informations about this awards in one of my Ordensjournal on my website. http://ordensmuseum.de/Orden/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/Ordensjournal26BWDAJan14.pdf Free for download, but only in german language. Regards Red
  20. My star, no:925, awarded to a german men (Prof. Dr. Heinz Maria OEFTERING) in 1965, is 73 mm.
