  1. hi there! as told previously I'm new in imperial collecting. reading a lot all around to learn as it seems to be a faked field as TR items are. looking around for a PLM award. I'm not interested in the more expensives ones, mainly because I can't afford them. but I read about 30's made replacement awards. they seem affordable to me but I'm aware of the large amount of copies. where can I get info about these last? what do you think about this one?? https://www.weitze.net/militaria/03/Preussen_Orden_Pour_le_M_eacute_rite__296303.html
  2. pep

    Condor Legion Tank Badge

    and what about this one??? ....
  3. perhaps I have the chance to purchase a H ritterkreuz with swords + case + outer carton. this last hard worn and not in the best condition but is there at least. which would be a honest price for the set??
  4. General der Infanterie Friedrich Mieth Born: 04.06.1888 in Eberswalde / Kreis Oberbarnim / Mark Brandenburg. Killed in Action: 02.09.1944 in Hussj near Jassy (Carpathians), Romania. DKiG + RK + EL
  5. hello want to show a bar in my collection for a long time ago. it's a rare one as it features ribbons for DANZIGER KREUZ 2.KLASSE and DIENSTAUSZEICHNUNG der NSDAP in bronze. My guess is that belonged to a young member of the nazi party in Danzig (possibly an SS) after that, WWII combatant.
  6. I've read something about this award and seems a very rare to find one. I've found one medal bar for sale including this award. I compared with some originals I found out there and IMO it's a fake. let me know your thoughts. best close up I got ...
  7. back is not hollow. to mee, details are not so good as others originals compared. also, main problem is the metal remaining between the eagle and the motto ring. sold at ebay for more than 700 euros
  8. yes. I agree concerning weitze. I understand by you reply that weitze's one is a fake. not even a copy from the 30's for everyday use ... does these private purchase awards from the 30's exist??
  9. IMHO is an original ribbon bar. but, following richard's thoughts about device's originality, perhaps its device was broken or lost and a previous collector added this one ...
  10. Iron Cross 2nd Class 1914 Order of Hohenzollern, Knight's Cross with Swords Albert Order, Officer's Cross with Swords Friedrich Cross Hindenburg Cross for Combatants Order of the Crown, 4th Class Wilhelm I Centenary Medal 1797-1897 Military Long Service Cross for Twenty-Five Years Order of the White Elephant, 5th Class it seems a very nice one with an unusual (for a german officer) siam award .... I like what I see. but, do you think it's a good one? may somebody identify its owner?
  11. not yet, claudius. I hope will be soon. thanks for info, Komtur. good job.
  12. thank you for posting. as you say a good start. seems that some imperial awards have a large variety of classes and types. will have a lot of fun studying them.
  13. hello. I started recently to post in this forum as I think this is a good place to get info about imperial awards. I'm new in this collecting field. I have a doubt with the ribbon of this order. sometimes I see it with a gray-blue ribbon and others with a black&white (EK style) ribbon. surely this matter has been explained/discussed here but I can't find a thread where I may get clear of this. surely some of you can let all the info. also would like to know which device was placed on a ribbon bar. I mean, single swords, crown+swords for combatants? plain ribbon for non combatants??? advanced thanks for your cooperation.
  14. hello. I'm new in the forum. lately getting a lot of interest on both or mixed WWI-WWII german ribbon bars. at this moment I'm studying the imperial awards. enclosed come some ribbons I can't identify. can you help me?? regards josep the last one of this bar ....
