  1. The problem on a bar with hooks is, that there could be hung an earlier version (bronce) of the SM medal/cross. ON the pic you cannot see, if it is the zinc version or not.
  2. Yes i would believe it, too Andreas, but were are the holes? Can we have a pic of the upper side of the turkish ribbon?
  3. Tach Andreas! Are you sure that the bar is the same as on your pic? On it the Red cross medal ist mit einem dunklen Faden oben am Rand angenäht? An der Schnalle kannst Du keine Löcher vom Faden oben erkennen.? Komisch? Greetz Joe
  4. Godet twins. One with early shield on it The other one - Frackspange with no label on it. The 3rd one is on with Sedlatzek label on it - i sold it a few years ago in the WAF.
  5. It`s a version with hooks, may be there was a SM medal for non combatants on it. The Version with crown was awarded ~ 600 times. Its a late war version (or after 1918) made of Zinc I don`t think, that the bar could be IDd. The bavarian one(s) were awarded a few thousand times. And if i am right, there are no german rolls for the Hilal-i-Ahmer medal. A very nice bar - i am collecting turkish medals & bars. If you would like to sell that piece in future please let me know. May be we could trade with other imperial things, if you like. I am paying good prices for bringing some nice pieces back home to Germany.
  6. I understand - but i hope, that the piece is still hiding somewhere in Germany. That piece belongs to the history of my country!
  7. If he had only standard decorations, there could be also some officer bars out there. If you are looking for groups, a good place is Ebay.de or some collectors forums in germany. Some of the members there also send items to oversea. Best
  8. 119 "O" rules One of my favourite regiment as Württemberger. The Kernerstaße is still existing. A nice street with old houses.
  9. Hi i think the piece is good. The LDA2 was also awarded to higher ranks.
  10. The regulations said: -schwarz - black -mattweiß - white -gelb - yellow not silver or gold
  11. Eyelet stamps instead of ring

    There are some We pieces which are also stamped with a sign which looks like a "Eichel".
  12. Not everyone had a wound badge. The bloody Ludwig was also given to people who did not have the WB. There were also some Württemberger with it.
  13. organized? - Yes, our Gründlichkeit ist unübertroffen all over the world
  14. Eyelet stamps instead of ring

    The unknown marker we stamped also the eyelet
  15. I got it from his relatives. They live in the Westphalen region. I got it over a auction house in 2014. He was born in Northern Württemberg. Yes all of his awards were listed in his Wehrpass He got the medal on 21.12.1917 for Tapferkeit vor dem Feinde. (9./122) And here we have another württemberg superman - medic sarge Johann Jakob Bantel I got this litte group from a collector`s friend in Baden. He got his golden MMM in 1916 as he rescued 4 wounded soldiers in heavy british fire on the western front. Unfortunately his awards were gone in all over that years. So i added a new bar with his awards on it. The golden MMM is a private purchased version made of gilded bronce. They were made in the Weimar era (Zweitstück). This bar has the rare golden oakleafes on it.
  16. One of my favourites: Vizefeldwebel Johann Georg Gerlinger, RIR 122 Heilbronn Highest württemberg bravery award for EM and NCO - the golden MMM. He got it on the western front. I have also his Feldspange and his Wehrpass. The MMM is stamped 333. His brother also got the golden MMM.
  17. Helmut Schmidt

    RIP Hauptmann Schmidt. Hope, over there, there are also some of you favourite Reyno menthol cigaretts. Richard von Weizäcker had also some WW2 awards.
  18. Es flammis clarior / orior! One of the nicest orders i know but very expensive. http://www.landesarchiv-bw.de/web/47260 or ask him: https://www.google.de/search?q=schloss+langenburg&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&gws_rd=cr&ei=7tk8VoXsKcPCPM7OmvAF
  19. The 2nd class is a piece which was made after 1918 (till 1920) or a 57 S & L piece or a modern fake
  20. Basst scho` Andreas! Nice bar Here an non combatant´s one with bayern connection. One more, i got.
