    TWM the war medal questions

    yes also bad items. all shown pieces are thrash. if you want to get a good piece, have a look about a BB Co. piece. They are not so overprised and easier to find. A good period JH Werner to find is very hard. They are also very expensive. 500 - 1000 bucks. have a look at Liverpool medals.com (for example). He has a BB& Co piece for a normal price.

    Turkish War Medal - STEINHAUER & LÜCK

    Here is my medal, marked with "E.S.". But I don't know, by whom it is stamped, the maker or the seller. In my opinion the only company which makes sense is Eugen Schmidhäussler, Pforzheim (E.S.) now Henecka. Schmidhäussler was founded in the 1890s. As Lüdenscheid Pforzheim was a big capital for jewellery, medals and orders in Germany. (also B.H. Mayer´s ....)

    Wonderful piece of the 1864 KDM. Here we have the version made of steel for non-combatants in its probemässiger Ausführung. This over 150 years old medal is very hard to find (prussian collector will know it) The medal comes with its ribbon. Only a few thousand pieces very given for example for nurses, medics and officials after the 1864 war against Denmark ended. Orginal item. Price: 164,99 EUR shipping worldwide with DHL (reg. letter) included.


  5. General Jakow Oberbefehlshaber der bulgarischen Armee Yes, von Steuben. von Steuben rules. German military power
  6. The marked bars are looking strange. What i especially like is the bar on #2 on the left with the ottoman ones. If he would sell it in future, i would be interested in
  7. Thanks for the entry in the list. The 2nd one is that piece of Eb... So in 1899/1900 he was 65 years old. May be my pic was taken to his Pensionierung (retired)
  8. I want to share a pic, which i got yesterdays for my 1870 Veteran photo book. First - unfortunately an unknown person, b u t at Ebay i found him on a pic again with his name and data. My pic was taken in Berlin on christmas 1899 and it is nearly 120 years old. It shown Heinrich Carl Scherer and his wife. He served as a Feldwebel in IR Nr. 48 and fought 1864, 1866 and 1870. He was awarded with -EK2 1870 (Wagner core) -EK1 1870 -AEZ (general honour medal) -KDM 1870 with 7 clasps (Spicheren, Vionville-Mars la tour, Gravelotte St Privat, Metz Beaune La Rolande - Orleans and Le Mans -1866 Kreuz für Kämpfer -1864 KDM für Kämpfer Centenialmedal 1897 and "25" oaks (1895) -LSM. In my opinion a true prussian hero of that time, especially of his EK1. It was only ~ 170 times awarded to EM and NCO.
  9. thanks a lot. Andy. And this one is greater than great, because of its high details. I must have been taken bevor 1897 Meet Mr. Scherer again - this grand pa rocked da house.
  10. Here one of my pics of the Kaiserliche Marine. It shows an officer (i think Oberleutnant z.S.) with his wife (?) and his new awarded IC 2nd class. As i saw his face, i remembered one person who had a famous reactivation in WW2 and the years bevor. Do you know his name (or the person he looks like) ?
  11. OK i had the young Wilhelm Canaris on my screen (nose, ears, hairs...) May be...
  12. i only know clips on medal bars around 1900 or later
  13. Hi

    Wenn Du mal irgendwo irgendwann einen EH vom Hersteller Wagner siehst - ich will ihn haben.

    Schick mir dann unbedingt eine PN.


    Gruss Jo

  14. Yes, but the blue stripe on Schaumburg is smaller. As i bought it from a person, it had the DA15 on it.
  15. Add a saxon Mannschaftsstand DA and the bar is perfect. A few years ago this bar stayed in my collection. That`s not a Schaumburg ribbon. It has a smaller blue stripe.
  16. That`s a 938 piece made by Meybauer. There are also a version with screw

    Help for opinions; first TWM

    a cheap fake. Ebay`s full of that sh...
  18. I don`t like the bar. And the Adler der Ritter is not a so rare decoration. It was often given to teachers and preachers.
  19. Those fotos are really rare. They are very hard to find. They are from the beginning of photography. My earliest photo shows a 1864 soldier after the war ended.
  20. Is it possible to ID the 1st guy? He`s a Leutnant. The photo was taken in 1919 in Regensburg (Bavaria) He wears the IC, Albrecht knight´s cross 2nd class with X, Mecklenburg MMCr. and austrian MMC 3rd class with war decoration. On his neck an (austrian??) Malteser and a unknown cross under it. Between the crossarms i can see some lions. (Finnish???) The 2nd one was taken in Lörrach (Baden) in 1918. Which uniform does he wear? No shoulderboards, no Kragenspiegel, only 3 black stripes on his arm. Thanks for help.
