  1. Many thanks Christophe. That was exactly the information I was looking to find.
  2. I recently received a couple of awards for my small Hohenzollern collection for everyones review. I know the Hausorden von Hohensollern Ehrenkreze 3. klasse mit krone und schwerten was awarded approximately 144 times in WW 1, but I was not sure about the Hausorden von Hohensollern Ehrenkreze 3. klasse mit schwerten. I know they were authorized from about the time of the 1866 war but I see them very infrequently and wondered if someone had a tally from the lists?
  3. Thank you for the nice comments, it is a bar that has been in the family for a long time. Claudio, I would show the back, but it has been mounted in a display for a number of years.
  4. I saw the one you mention for sale which got me to thinking. I still have no idea what mine is actually for, but it was sewn onto something. Definitely good information here.
  5. So I was digging through some of the items I have about and came across this. It appears to be a 1. Garde zu Fuss crest with a couple of attachment points. Could it be a an officer's pickelhaube emblem?
  6. That would be your favorite Chris, the 1. Garde Regiment zu Fuss.. Dated 1883
  7. I managed to acquire a fair amount of items from a family estate. Thought I would share one of the items from the group. I have seen them before but not sure what they are called. A silver Grenadiermütze for the departure, most likely transfer, of Oberstlieutenant Graf zu Rantzau from the Garde Regiment.
  8. Thank you for the directions, I will follow and see where they lead me.
  9. Very much a beginner when it comes to this kind of research. I was looking to find more information on the 1. Garde - Regiment zu Fuss after the start of WW1. I was hoping that someone could point me in a direction that might lead me to some more information or literature. I really have no idea where to start looking for this kind of stuff.

    EK1 Schön

    Yes, I have his full medal bar and documents for most of the decorations. What I had been missing was the physical EK1, which I finally located. I believe I have a couple of picture from East Africa as well. Will have to dig them up and scan them.
  11. Finally located his 1914 EK1 in the most unlikely location. Found this one to be somewhat unique with the concave shape. A young Schön
