  1. USA Ribbon Bars

    I dont think its made up. Why would one bother? Instead I suggest its possibly AFS and very early 1946- 1947, which would fit the construction.
  2. As an aside-very few of the residents of Ostmark applied for and received an HK. The medal was authorized for Ostmarkers only in 1939 and frozen in early 1940.
  3. I thought archive research had narrowed down the non Bavarian awards of the MVK pre war to almost nobody(1-3?).
  4. My money is on a Deckofficer. Without the SaxAlbx its a classic combination for someone stuck in the Baltic for 1914-18.
  5. yup-implied. Rick showed me the research he and others had done on the Olympic medal awards. A huge number went to metro area Berlin police.
  6. The MM was an officers' only award was it not? However, I thought Feldwebel-Lts, Faehrichs and Officer Stelvtr. ranks could also receive it. Sedalzek was in business well into the 1970s and it looks like an original bar. I think you did ok.
  7. Regarding the Post of May above-I strongly suspect this was a German made/ repaired item made by Kleitman/Godet in the 1960s. Kleitman made a number of these as replacements and as collectors items. In his window/show display items he sometimes enscribed the item on the rear.
  8. Bringing History to life...

    yeah. they really are amazingly vivid.
  9. Bringing History to life...

    This thread is a pleasure to go through. I belong to a historical photography and film club up here. One of the guys told me recently that it was standard practice in the 1920s- 1950s to use a sky blue backdrape, as it offset the grey contrasts of the film well and could be easily lightened or darkened by augmenting lights of various strengths.
  10. I found two crossbelt plates :-)

    Outstanding find!
  11. Well, Ed Haynes (not here-but on Facebook) would know and so would Nick Higton. Hilton has all sorts of odd Indian army records. Try them.
  12. No. I knew he was Stahlhelm-I have their provincial rank lists. But Ithought the badge was a form of a unit form of the Polish uprisings badge. I have a photo of a Freikorps chap with this type of eagle badge with the Prussian shield on the chest.Nice and rare Wehrsport oaks.
