  1. Hello this is a portrait of PLM (26.09.17) winner Heinrich von Hadeln, born 21.2.1871. I was wondering if someone could help me identify the orders mounted on his medal bar. From left Ek2, HHOx (13.01.17), 3, 4, 5, MVK Austria, 7 , 8 His biography records him having a KVK II+. What would this refer to? And the Deutsche Orders Almanach from 1908/09 shows the Centenary Medal from Prussia, a Japanese Order and a Romanian Order right? Thank very much for your help!
  2. Nice 1917 silver-gilt PLM. Is it yours? Is the recipient known? Which maker? W or Fr?
  3. Hello Komtur, Thank you for your reply. Yes, it would be the one in Stab IR 166. 28.11.1915. Could you be so kind in giving me the page number in which this appears so that I can record the proper reference ? I would appreciate this very much. George
  4. Hello guys, I don't know if this is the right place to post this, but I need some help. Does anyone have access to the following book? Roth, Erhard Verleihungen von militärischen Orden und Ehrenzeichen des Königreiches Bayern im Ersten Weltkrieg 1914 – 1918 For reference, I need to confirm MVO4th kr & Schw. Awarded to major Josef Bischoff in 1915. I appreciate your help...
  5. No. It isn’t. I’ll post some screenshots of the pawn stars plm By the way, I believe this PLM in not good.
  6. Yup. And that was the expert’s red flag. That’s why he told Rick he was 80% sure it was a good piece, whatever that means... But, who takes an authentic PLM to Pawn Stars anyway?
  7. It was common for the makers mark to be upside down in relation to the silver content mark, but this was not always the case. I mean, this factor alone is not enough to determine a good cross from a bad one
  8. Did someone watch this episode? Asking price $20k. Modern ribbon. Rick asked his expert, and then he passed on this one... The red flag for Rick and his expert was that the W was upside down with respect to the 938 silver mark. It looks good . However there is something odd with the enamel. It looks like if it was reworked or re enamelled...
  9. Thank you Andy! Yes, I have seen this particular page. As a matter of fact, I have searched all over the internet and over several forums for more information without much success. This page confirms his PLM on 30.06.1918 and both his RAO4x and KrO4x in 1908. He entered service in 1892 with 4 years in Schutztruppe, so he must have gotten his DA25 in 1913. The 1914 Rangliste confirms this award by 1914. He was a Major when war started so it was pretty obvious he got both his EKs early on. As a Prussian soldier with PLM he must have surely received the HHO3x before his plm award. Bavaria, the second largest kingdom in importance after Prussia must have followed suit with his MVO4x. The thing is that I would like more help from people with access to the award rolls, so that they can confirm dates, and answer the questions I posted before. Thanks again Andy for your kind help
