  3. Hi everybody, Here is new photo I have received this morning. A rare photo of saxon officer (showing his St Henry on medal bar) with two medals from Lippe Detmold The rarity, the War Honor Cross for the Heroic Deed. Only 740 awards during the WW1. For the moment I can't read the back of the text to know who is he. If someone can help me with translation, thanks in advance. Christophe
  4. Hi Dave, Many thanks for the informations. in the 104 history unit, only 12 LK were awarded, but no date were written. Too bad
  5. hi It seems to be a good one. Here is the twin bar Christophe On your bar it is too bad that the SV ribbon is after the SA one.

  7. Hi Very nice medal bar. I like it. It's difficult to find such saxon medal bar with Reuss connection. Congrats Christophe
  8. Hi Christer Very nice cross, thanks for sharing it with us Christophe
  9. Hi After the 15 september 1915, the order is not returned to the Order Chancellerie afther the dead of the owner. And before this date yes the order of St Henry should be returned. Officially, the Court Jeweler is Scharffenberg, but Roesner dit it too. Here is the hallmark of one of my SH3 Christophe In 1915, the Jeweller Osang made some knight cross of St Henry. Here is one more photo of the St Henry. Both are made from Scharffenberg but you can clearly see the difference.

  17. Hi I am impressed by the quality of your collection. Congrats. When I've begun to collect Militaria, the first book I have bought is the von Salomon's Freikorps book from 1938. At that time I'd loved to collect freecorps medals but I have never found one in militaria show. Later I have found some dealers who sold some but there is a lot of fake. So I have chosen to collect Imperial medals. Thanks for sharing your collection with us. Christophe
  18. Charles, Very nice uniform. Congrats. Is there a name inside your uniform ? Christophe
  19. Hi I've always heard that EK2 1914 was awarded more than 5 miilions time. The Voll's book is very complete and you can find it probably on amazon or directly through the DGO. About the O'Connor's book, it is true that the 2 first volumes are very rare now. I am lucky enought to have the complete collection. I remember that Pal Chepurko plans to scan those books. I have no idea about that now. Christophe
