  1. That's very interesting. Thanks a lot for showing the documents. The pages are from the "Verordnungsblätter des bayerischen Kriegsarchives, Anhänge." regards Andreas
  2. Hello nice bar. What colour is the saxonia FAM? Is it bronce or silver? I suspect silver, as the bayr. MVK is also a 2nd grade for a Vizefeldwebel (segeant major). regards Andreas
  3. Helo Dave, thank you for the Marine equivalents. There are only a few MVK awardings to Marine soldiers. I am only aware of three ships with a Bavarian connection Bayern, Prinzregent Luitpold and Von der Tann.

    Nice collection. The green pins with parts of a bird are awards for a special traditional competition, called "Vogelkönig". see this link. If you seperate one part of this wooden bird, you win the special pin. In your collection are several kinds of shooting pins of traditional and sporting competitions. I think all are shooting pins.

    Hello, I am member of a traditional german shootingclub for over 40 years. There are a lot of badges, pins and medals in this organisation. There are awards for traditional shooting like the bar in your picture, given for "Schützenkönig" and other winners of this competition. Also awards for membership in the organisation 25, 40 50... years. Awards for officials in all levels of the shooting organisation and last but not least awards for shooting competitions. Here are some of my pins for shooting competitions from upper franconia and bavaria. Regards Andreas

  7. Hellollo CCJ, the level of the MVK depended on the grade at the time of application. If the soldier was later promoted, then the class did not change. It also happened that the MVK was awarded several times to a soldier, so could the class be higher. Here are all classes from wartime and the corresponding ranks: MVK 1st class with crown and swords: middle officials in the war Ministry like paymaster 7 MVK at the warribbon all others with the ribbon of war merit (Beamtenband). It was up to the service, but especially on the addition of "middle officials in the Ministry of War". Some awards after renewed bravery for1st class owner with swords. MVK 1st class with swords: Feldwebelleutnante, middle officials and z. B. field medical assistants, Reichsbahninspektoren MVK 2nd class with crown and swords Officer Deputy, Unterzahlmeister, Musikmeister MVK 2nd class with swords: Deputy Sergeant, Sergeant, Ensign MVK 3rd class with crown and swords: NCOs and sergeants MVK 3rd class with swords: Private and crews Here in german: MVK 1. Klasse mit Krone und Schwertern: mittlere Beamte im Kriegsministerium ( 7 am Kriegsband) Es kam auf die Dienststellung an, aber vor allem auf dem Zusatz "mittlere Beamte im Kriegsministerium". Einige Verleihungen nach erneuter Tapferkeit für Inhaber der 1. Klasse mit Schwertern. MVK 1. Klasse mit Schwertern: Feldwebelleutnante, mittlere Beamte und z. B. Feldhilfsärzte, Reichsbahninspektoren MVK 2. Klasse mit Kr. und Schw.: Offiziersstellvertreter, Unterzahlmeister, Musikmeister MVK 2. Klasse mit Schwertern: Vizefeldwebel, Feldwebel, Fähnriche MVK 3. Klasse mit Krone und Schwertern: Unteroffiziere und Sergeanten MVK 3. Klasse mit Schwertern: Gefreite und Mannschaften I hope you understand my report. I've used the google translator, Regards Andreas
  8. Very nice and rare Picture. A MVK second or first class without swords.
  9. Hello, I do not like the gilding and the shape of the medallion. Here is a picture for comparison. http://www.wikiwand.com/de/Herzoglich_Sachsen-Ernestinischer_Hausorden . Here a silver Knightscross in big picture http://woeschler-orden.de/node/2676
  10. The MVO is a Hemmerle, but I cant see if it is a golden or a silver guilt medaillon. So I need the backside of this award. I think the MVK is from another relative. What is written at ancestry about the Landwehr-Leutnant?
  11. Very nice grooping. Is that the treasurebox of the whole family? I think two or three owners.
  12. Very nice. This is a late production of Hemmerle (1918) with silver guilt medaillon. I have never seen blue paper. Normally this cross was in a red paperbox. The first class was awarded to the rank Feldwebel-Leutnant.
  13. Hello, I think he was a reactivated Feldwebel-Leutnant. A Vizefeldwebel would be awarded with a MVK second class with swords. This MVK first class is a late production of Hemmerle, can you show better pictures of the MVO?
  14. I've never senn the silver coin before. In my collection is only a bronce coin. Thank you for sharing.
  15. Hello, it is a Leser Typ 1 with real golden center. I miss the cross above the crown on the front center. Fo me, it looks like a repair of the black enamel. The "L" was mountend seperately, also the lion of the backside. Here for example a piece of my collection.
  16. I agree with waldo. Weiss was court jeweler of the Bavarian king. He had a name to lose if he had delivered such faulty goods.
  17. Hello, last week I have won the ebay auction with the König-Ludwig-Kreuz certificate and 3 pictures of him. Here some more informations Decorations: MVO 4. class crown/swords Jubiläumsmedaille Service cross 24 years Iron cross 2 König Ludwig Kreuz Spain Knightscross Isabella the catholic he was married and had two daughters.
  18. That looks like the braverymedal. Is there a description about the unit?
