  1. This set belonged to First Lieutenant Friedrich who served in the Marine-Infanterie-Regiment 1 which fought in Flanders. Does anyone have the regimental history (Das Marine-Infanterie-Regiment 1 1914 – 1918, nach amtlichen Kriegstagebüchern und nach den Aufzeichnungen von Mitkämpfern, bearbeitet von Angehörigen der Vereinigung der Offiziere des ehemaligen M.I.R. 1 und des 1. Seebataillons. Herausgeber: Theodor Kinder, Ltnt. d.R. a.D., Kiel 1933) and/or can add details with respect to Friedrich? Thanks in advance!
  2. The last award (Kriegerverein 1866er?) still to be identified. ...another one with 1863/64, 1866 and 1870/71 awards.

  6. Can someone identify this piece, please? Thanks in advance!
  7. Danish Medal Collection

  8. Danish Medal Collection

    Thanks for reminding us of this interesting auction which gave the opportunity to look up the medal below. However, I was unfortunately not able to find it there. It would pobalbly fit in between numbers 97 and 98? Does anyone have an idea of the rarity and value? If this is indeed "possibly the most complete Danish medal Collection" does that mean this one is rare or did I just fail to detect it?
  9. Medals for the successful participants of the Prince Henry Tour 1911 of The Royal Automobile Club of Great Britain and the Imperial Automobile Club of Germany to commemorate the Coronation of King George V, taking place during July 1911. One of the participants was Arthur Conan Doyle.

    Three caricatures on the subject which I could acquire recently:
  11. Albania- Wied era medals

    I am afraid when it comes to Albanian documents I have to disappoint you. However, this is what comes closest:
  12. Indeed, Frans van Lennep (Amsterdam, 14 June 1890 - Bentveld, 15 April 1980) was “kamerheer” to both Queen Wilhelmina and Queen Juliana.
