  1. Thanks in advance!
  2. The latter. Thanks, Paul!
  3. Can someone identify this piece, please? Thanks in advance!
  4. Thanks to both Lars and Michael for their enlightening comments.
  5. 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?

  13. It is "Frhr (Freiherr=Baron) von Ziegesar". Kurt Freiherr von Ziegesar (1885-1914) died as commander of SMS S 116 after it was sunk by HMS E 9.
