  1. Dear Gensui

    I am Japanese award document collector. I find you have collected some Japanese award documents. Could I ask do you have some plans to sell them? If you want, please connect with me.

    Best Wish


  2. Seems like official documents from a Japanese archive. Do you have any sources-information on this wonderful documents? BR, Chris
  3. Gents, After some thoughts and some discussion with the member Leutwein, I have doubt on the ribbon bars as well. Leutwein pointed out, that this ribbon bar (with the MVO4mKrX) should be, at least, to a Major-rank. But there is no long service medal for 25 years, which he should received basically. Beside this, it looks like a construction after the 1930s, and I'd like to refer on below link (thanks, Leutwein!) BR, Chris
  4. What I feel strange about are the different conditions between ribbon and medal. Seems like cleaned ribbon, while medal have a patina. No worries about authenticity. BR, Chris

    Gents, I'm always interested in Imperial German medal bars, which are related to the former colonies. Especially to China, Samoa, Deutsch-Neuguinea and Venezuela. Please feel free to send me any offer directly via pm. Thanks and br, Chris


  6. As far as I remember, seller declared the Tsekingkwan clasp itself as "tailor's copy". Br, Chris
  7. I hope this is ok? Otherwise, you need to be patient, 'till I take this bar back from the safe desposit box. BR, Chris
  8. Hi Alex, Yes, it's Borns medal bar. As far as I know, Anton "Toni" Heinrich Kaspar Born was born in 1890 in St. Goashausen, Hessen-Nassau. He received the MEZ 2 for his service at Pohnpei in 1911. But I am not sure, which ship Born joined during this time (SMS Emden, SMS Nuernberg, SMS Cormoran). I have a copy of a postcard; no. 21 is Born. BR, Chris
  9. Gents, Please allow me to share my contribution to this interesting topic: Within the estate of the former U-Deutschland member seaman 1st class Anton Born, who served as engineer on the U-Deutschland and was interned in the US, was this “Iron Cross” with the counterfeit of Paul Koenig as well as an ash tray, made out of the scrapped Deutschland. BR, Chris
  10. I’m always interested in (colonial-related) Imperial German Medal bars with any combat clasps (e.g. for China, Samoa, Deutsch Neuguinea, etc.). Thanks for any offer via pm. BR, Chris
  11. Hello! I am always looking for Imperial German medals bars (with combat clasp), related to the former colonies. Any offers (e.g. award documents as well!) are welcome via pm. Thanks Gensui
  12. …to be honest, I don’t believe here in a golden version of this medal. Case looks mostly like the one for the Promulgation medal and the medal itself could be a “deadly-polished†silver medal. I’m not sure about the base material of this medal. I would had expect some more prominent case with some golden flower décor (compare to the case of the silver medal) for the golden Wedding Anniversary Medal... BR, Chris
  13. ...and in GOLD Happy bidding... BR, Chris
  14. Gents, For all those who are still looking for a nice Valentines gift: Wedding Anniversary Medal in silver …
