    • FOR SALE

    For sale: This nice and rarer military pass ("Militärpass") of an bavarian former Bezirksfeldwebel (NCO) who served and lived in franconia (Ansbach/Nürnberg) He began his service in 1872 and ended it after 40 years in 1912. The pass does have a very good condition only small damages in its shell. A lot of registrations in his pass (promotions, troops and his awarded decorations) He got the -LSC (i think for 40 years) -the 1905 Jubilee medal and in my opinion the rare bavarian miliary merit cross 1st class without swords in its version of 1905 - 1913. (only awarded 185 times - hereof 109 times to bavarians - source: Bernd Döbel) You can find his military case also on Ancestry (see pic) The registrations end in ca. 1919. His last regiment was the Halbinvaliden Abteilung II. A.K. Price: 159,00 EUR or best offer for this nice and rare document. The pics do not show all of the registations of the pass!! I prefer bank transfer for members of the E.U. Paypal fees 4 % - no PP as "friends" accepted!! Shipping worldwide as registered small package for 6,00 EUR


  2. Good to have this forum. Nice pic. If you want to sell it in future, please let me know. I think i got his Soldbuch of 1914/15.
  3. Yes very good for us researchers - they took the most of the archive data outside of Stuttgart bevor 1944. Especially i like the high detailed pics. The most of M 707, 708 709 photos are saved on my PC - ...was a really hard work. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Are we in or are we out?:) - nearly every day when i read the newspapers i think: What the hell they are doing over there??? If they will not chance their minds, i think you`re out .. hard out.😬
  4. Now i know him - he`s from our Archive in Stuttgart. I like the pic, because he has the MKF knight on his bar.
  5. Wagner is a german mass name like schmidt, Maier, Müller, Schulz and others... Who is the guy in your avatar? I know that face but not his name.
  6. Hello again! Here we have 2 "bavarian" pics, i recently got. Can somebody help to ID the bavarian General on pic # 1 ? He wears the IC, bavarian MMO on his neck & star. I think it`s a pic with his staff. The pic was taken in bavaria. # 2 was taken in Freising. It shows a group of veterans. The NCO in the middle wears his bar in a funny way (or it is a Frackbar) On pos. 1 bavarian MMC 3rd class with X and crown, IC and on the last position the rare bavarian bravery medal (i don`t know if it is the silver or golden grade) I had luck - the seller did not know the rarity of the pic (postcard) - Can we ID the units? Infanterists? Jäger???? On the left a guy who looks a bit like the last russian czar Nikolaus. lol.. Thanks again for help. zähringer18.tif zähringer22.tif
  7. Thank you, too. Yes, it seems that he wears the MMJO ribbon. I like those old cards. Sometimes you can find very nice pieces for low money here in GER.
  8. WOW Glenn! Thank again again😃 I will take the new photos in my album with that informations about it.

    One of the rarest EK Awards...

    Für Heimatverdienste means he got the IC on non-combatant ribbon. Würde zu einem Offizier im Kriegsbekleidungsamt passen.
  10. Hi I got some new photos and that´s one of them. What´s the rank of that guy? Fähnrich (Offiziersanwärter)? Why does he have 3 stripes ? I can read a number 5 or a S - is it his regiment? Thanks. zähringer5.tif
  11. Why not? seems that he only got the hanseatic cross and wore it alone. May be the ribbon could be new.
  12. How many of that pieces were awarded is still unknown. ~ 2000 pieces is a Schätzung of Walter Rosenwald + The archive material did not survive the last war.
  13. Hi Alex, I only have a few pics with pilots on it. Is the shown guy a Marineflieger? I can read a 13 on his shoulderboards and the rank of a Lt. or 1st Lt. Thanks. zähringer17.tif
  14. und hast Du eine Ahnung, wo ich ein gutes Buch über Uniformen Kaiserreich / Dienstgradabzeichen usw. finden kann? Do you know books of imperial uniforms and insignia i could buy`? --> I found a very good book about Uniforms in the Stuttgart Archive for 0 - (download)
  15. Wie immer sehr schöne Sachen von Dir, Alex. Like every time - very nice things Alex.
  16. 😀 In my opinion the ultimative best imperial non combatant flag ship of 2018 with 13 decorations: https://www.zeige.com/auktionskatalog/Ordensspangen-und-Nachlaesse-Konvolute--4100.html I`d like to have the cash for buying it... 😥
  17. Also a nice one - mir würde schon eine mit RAO3 ausreichen. I think he was a higher official - Beamter im höheren Dienst - in a higher authority like a Oberegierungsrat, Direktor, Geheimrat or something in that way. I have worked through the Siekmann 1917 and the HDR18 and Intendanturliste 1929 several times - and i had luck to find some possible recipients of some of my bars. But that`s a lot of work. I did a lot of markings for finding EK2w recipients better. One of the problems is, that lower decorations like Centenar, KDM70, Chinamedal.... are often not listed - or sometimes i could prove with Papiernachlässe, that not all informations are correct. (for example with Ministerialbürodirektor Rettig, Rechnungshof DR, or Ministerialamtmann Reimann) This time in the corners of the net there`s a interesting bar - but it is too expensive as i think. I could find the recipient because of one striking decoration he had. A Zahlmeister. And i could find more infos with old Adressbücher. One more mystery solved. Übung macht den Meister. Nur kein Moos ansetzen (Das Boot)

    classic K.M.S.T. mousetrap

    Yau, looks nice. I always think this type of Stuttgart is looking like an old Korkenzieher - not as a mouse trap.
  19. Yes, both very nice. I am still looking for a NC bar with a "simple" RAO3 on it. I am looking since years. But i cannot find one. I only have KO3, KO4 and RAO4 ones. There´s nearly nothing of prussian decorations , which Mr. T hasn`t got.😜
  20. An Oldenburg collecter said to me, that the non magnetic pieces were made pre war 1920/30... The bar is imo a good original piece.
  21. Another pic (press photo) i got (i do collect pics with IC on it) British war fighters in Berlin are saluting the fallen heros of WW1. Could it be, that the shown guys were members of the B.U.F. ??? I did not know, that british war fighters moved to Berlin in the 1930s. zähringer6.tif
