  1. Gentlemen, Just acquired a ‘14 Iron Cross 2nd Class and it was in this box. Any clues as to what award the box is for?
  2. French military buckle?

    Hi All, Just acquired this. Measures around 1.5" dia. Features a flur and a grotesque dolphin. Appears excavated. Any ideas? Thanks!!

    • WANTED

    Hi All, I'm in need of a length of (preferably original) ribbon for the Bavarian Military Merit Order 4th Cl. Anyone?? Thanks!!


  4. Gentlemen, Does anyone recognize this wing (badge)?
  5. French Croix de Guerre WWI

    here's an American award. Note the pin brooch. This was obtained from the soldier's descendants, along with written provenance from the family and a copy of his service record. Very nice to find a documented American example!
  6. French Croix de Guerre WWI

    manufacturing variation?
  7. French Croix de Guerre WWI

    wow! That's excellent!
  8. French Croix de Guerre WWI

    Thanks, Jim! The nuance and variety of the CdG sure contributes to it's appeal!!
  9. French Croix de Guerre WWI

    just acquired, a *very* dark bronze example. It's quite aesthetically pleasing, imho.
  10. Thanks Chris! Any idea what the ribbon looks like?
  11. the fob chain was added by the seller. I'm sure it was a ribboned medal at one time.
  12. Lebel bayonet, but which type?

    Gentlemen Have so far been unsuccessful in finding this particular variation. On the pommel end, there is what appears to be a tool-access hole. This hole is not threaded and is considerably smaller than the diameter of the false end-cap or the spanner slot end-cap. All other features on the bayonet are early features. Is this an in-between variation?
  13. Thanks, Paul! Arcane subject matter, for sure!
