  1. Hello Don; Do you have anything more to give on Walter Hübner? An aeronautical engineer that is also a pilot? Was he a test pilot? The unit he was with? What unit he was with before he became a pilot? Do you have any documents? How do you know Walter Hübner?
  2. no, I don't like it. I don't think it is a period piece. Post, post 1970s.
  3. That's a great looking Frack bar. Pre-war; Centennial, Red Eagle and Saxon, then wartime; EK2, Wurttemburg and Bremen and then finally sew the whole thing together with a Weimar era Veteran's medal. That is 20-25 years representing three time periods on this medal bar.
  4. Otto Hess? How do you know it belonged to Otto Hess? Are there any other documents? Photos? Nice looking badge.
  5. Hello Mark; Welcome to GMIC! The tin is certainly uncommon, and it is nice that you still have the original note inside. Unfortunately the tin itself is in rough shape. ebay, with no minimum bid may be a good venue for you to sell it. It may appeal to variety of different collectors; WWI, old chocolate advertising, Old Cadbury packaging, hospital care of wounded soldiers items.
  6. De nada. (I hope that is correct expression)
  7. Victor del SEU in bronze The Víctor medal is a Spanish decoration awarded by the Spanish University Union (SEU). Traditional symbol of merit in the Spanish University. Regulation as of March 11, 1952.íctor_del_SEU
  8. An outstanding report. It's the small details meted out over the entire action that really speaks to situation.
  9. I was aware of WWII Russian pilots that would ram other planes. There was even a pilot that survived a successful ramming and went to fly and ram again (didn't survive that collision). This postcard would suggest that the idea and practice of aerial ramming started in WWI.
  10. Is this supposed to be a text book "square-punch" version? hmmmm, (see post 211) Look to compare to other known square MM examples.
  11. Hello Nick; Those are some great looking crosses! Nothing to be shy about. Thank you for showing them.
  12. I wish I could read those battle bars. I don't remember the last time I saw FIVE bars on a medal bar. Wow.
