  1. Yes. This fakery has been going on for a while-the technique is common for US Civil War CDVs and has been since the 1970s. I was shown Confederate CDV fakes in 1975. Bartko Rehrer was the guy who bought the old paper and reprinted photos. i have an original of a freikorps chap with a dog -and three slightly fuzzy copies of the same picture. I think Dave Danner gave me one of them.

    Identification of Ethiopian Medal

    So an imperial personal gift?

    NEED HELP: BRONZE STAR MEDAL

    Thats probably the guy. The WW2 memorial database sometimes shows veterans. Those late WW2 bronze Stars were awarded wellinto Vietnam. I thought I read in the JOMSA up until 1970 when a new contract was given.
  4. theres an 8th Air Force database. Try asking here. The collective we here have a lot of resources.

    US Certificate of Gratitude.

    nope-no medal.

    2 badges and a medal

    As I recall thats a private commemorative version that was adopted by several towns-with different planchets and ribbons.
  7. Austrians awarded the wound medal usually kept their medalson their bars -there's a tonne of photos for this.

    Avatar Names; Why?

    well, mines a translation of my name. The internet is comprised of some very nasty people-especially ones that collect TR. Rick Lundstroms experience with a certain Parisian is enough to make anyone want an extra layer of security, especially these days when bots are actively seeking your information.
  9. cool. i met a couple of Boer war vets myself as a kid. Oh to have seen what they did.

    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.
  11. 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.
  12. I thought archive research had narrowed down the non Bavarian awards of the MVK pre war to almost nobody(1-3?).
  13. My money is on a Deckofficer. Without the SaxAlbx its a classic combination for someone stuck in the Baltic for 1914-18.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
