  1. negative never ever But if you don't trust my knowledge, then go ahead. two short questions: why I have never meet a collector in our archives in Mecklenburg? How is possible that I have all mecklenburgian rolls and thousands of files in copy, but always other collectors have more knowledges? best regards Frank
  2. 100% sure The Mecklenburg ribbons are more lighter and not so colourful.
  3. Sorry to say like that, but it is not a bar from Mecklenburg. It's Oldenburg! Here is a long service cross mounted insteate of a missing Campaign medal from Oldenburg 1866! regards Seeheld
  4. It's long Story. It's came together with yours and other stuff in 2001 from a small auction house into the collection of a friend of me. He was also the one who sold your silver engraved private purchased badge to a german collector who sold yours into the wide world... Regards Seeheld Your silver badge was sold in the auction without box... Here is a scan from your silver piece made by my friend who brought the badge during the auction and the page from the auction catalog from 2001. Regards Seeheld
  5. I was lucky last week and I got the awarded Seeflieger Badge from Otto Hess. It is made from Bronze by H. Schaper. It's looks like he was wearing this badge a long time and he has polished it very often. Regards Seeheld
  6. I guess you will find nothing in Berlin. The ottoman empire is also very popular in Germany and we have many collectors. Sorry... Regards Seeheld
  7. great medal bar and easy to restore regards Seeheld
  8. 1671 Knight Crosses You are right, usually is here no chance to get a right name. regards Seeheld
  9. Hi Nicolas, at first your informations from Wikipedia is totally wrong. The Griffin order was the lowest order in both Mecklenburg. (Schwerin and Strelitz) And a Knight Cross with Swords has never been existed. I have the complete rolls of all Orders and Medals from Mecklenburg on my files. Wich information do you require exactly? Regards Seeheld
  10. Ok, now it is clear. He is noted in the rolls as Alexander Fürst von Teck. He got his Grand cross Crown in Ore at the 22nd of July 1904 from Mecklenburg-Strelitz. Regards Seeheld
  11. Wow! I have found my family on three nails in the museum in my place of birth. The biggest nails are engraved. Regards Seeheld
  12. I will have another look tomorrow. All have been awarded with the civilian Class. Crown in Ore is the class for highest nobility only! For example Kings, Dukes, Prince ... Crown in Gold is the class for common nobility or high ranking people. For example Fieldmarshalls, Generals, Minister, Ambassador Regards Seeheld
  13. gold medal for zeal

    Hello Guys, last week I got this medal from an old man, who want to melt the medal to get money for the gold. He told me that medal was awarded to his great grandfather (Family name Miehlke). The medal has a diameter of 51mm and a weight of 77g. According to a jeweler the Gold is made from 20kt. It is possible to get informations about Direktor Miehlke? He was living until 1918 in St. Petersburg. How rare is such a medal? regards Seeheld
  14. According to the rolls: 1. Grand cross with crown in ore on 27.09.1879 from Mecklenburg-Strelitz 2. nile 3. Grand cross with crown in ore on 13.08.1865 from Mecklenburg-Strelitz 4. not clear 5. Grand cross with crown in ore on 22.07.1904 from Mecklenburg-Strelitz 6. Grand cross with crown in ore on 19.07.1902 from Mecklenburg-Strelitz The problem are the different names and titles. This is the reason for number 4. Number 2 is for sure not noted in the original rolls. Best regards Seeheld
