  6. Echoing Peter....DROOL! wish it were mine.... Nice find Chris! I thought they only practised removing the clasp "Ears" on the 1854 IGS....now i know different. Thanks for that. Cheers Paul
  7. Gents, Here is a wee item i picked up just recently...it was part of a large haul of ribbon ID Charts But i missed out on the others Boo Hoo! as the auction ended when i was working...Bugger! It has an ID page which i will post as well....but it may not be readable! as i had to crop the scanned image...so small to be allowed here...Nos, 22 to 40 are all Wurttemburg medal ribbons! nos 15 to 20 are Waldeck ribbons. Another two will follow! Cheers Paul

  10. Vince, Thanks for sharing your "Opi" with us. What a man! what a interesting life he had... I am sure that you treasure his medals etc...for ever... Cheers Paul
  11. Ed, Found a 1854 IGS the other day. Named to Sepoy Jeeba Singh Mily Police Bn Pyinmana With Burma 1887-89 Clasp IS this a rarity? And can you help with a approximate worth please? Kind regards Paul PS; just bought my latest 1854 IGS..to a 1015 Cpl C Stuart Royal Scots Fusiliers
  12. Thankyou Gents, I am pleased to complete the group in his Honour. Yes addictive indeed! Hows your addiction coming along Laurence?? Regards Paul
  13. Gents....Behold!!! the bar is assembled finally! Doesn't it look great! and a fitting tribute to a brave Sepoy who died fighting for his country in Burma. Also attached is his Memoriam from the Commonwealth War Graves site. Enjoy! Paul
  14. Nice to see you are on this particular slippery slope there Pat! LOL Ed, Sorry to be picky...but New Zealanders did not get their medals stamped with their names...a great pity that.. Australians, Indians, And south africans did so did the ( not 100% sure here) Rhodesians and Canadians. Darrell!, nice to see the full set...i need the ACE myself.... have 7 so far... Have the 1939-45, Burma, Africa( with 1st and 8th army bars),and the Italy Stars mounted in Groups all are attributed to South African, a NZer, and a British soldiers. Have a group to the Englishman, missing the North Africa 1942-3 bar Am hoping to get a Navy bar soon with a Pacific Star with Burma bar. Laurence, i see you are too on this slippery slope...i find it really Interesting being able to research the soldiers life from having his name on the medals. Cheers Gents, Paul
  15. Hello Ed, Superb wee groups! Thanks for showing us! Love the group to Sepoy Fazal Din....Wonderful! all Victorian! just magic! Also Love the Kabul to Khandahar pair! Am getting a pair with 3 bars to a Pte in the 92nd Highlanders soon! cannot wait! Cheers Paul
  16. Hello Gents, This gem has arrived in the post! It has the Wurttemberg Golden Bravery medal This medal could be real gold, but it looks to me, to be the gold wash that happened to them later in the war. It also has the 'k Swenkler' mark under the bust. Apart from getting a jeweller to test and ascertain the metal used in this medal is there any other way to test and find out? It has this cool makers tag on the reverse and the HK is from C.E.Junker and it is a pretty rough cut unit... Pics are here! Enjoy! Regards Paul
  17. Hello Gents, Found this bar lurking on Evilbay...seller does not give any info, so i'd thought to have a surf to find out what i could, so i could only find a close resemblance to the Baden Merit cross of the order of Zahringer Lowens for the first one thats assuming that the second medal is with the wrong ribbon as it looks like a Baden War Merit Cross , thens theres the Centarmedaille, and then, the 1870-71 war medal, the next missing one in Yellow??? and the last one??? cannot find anything about that sort of ribbon so far... Does anyone know the link to the site where he has a page dedicated to german imperial ribbons and how to identify?? Please send the link! i miss not having that for reference...( instead of having to annoy the gents with dumb questions... ) I wonder then...if the medals for this bar are not that rare so it could be assembled again??? i guess when i know for sure what they are, i will be then, able to ferret around and find out..lol Cheers, Paul

    New EK1s

    Don, these are Very Very nice indeed! Thanks for the clarification as to why the points have the build up on them..makes perfect sense than fluff the expensive cloth and render the cloth all tatty. Thanks for showing! Kind regards Paul
  19. Gawd! these are positively Awfull! the mind boggles! How do they possibly think that they can get away with selling this tripe?? I mean those sort of bars ( Size wise) would command serious money, and those who spend this sort of money know what they are buying...and would not touch these with a 100 foot barge pole! Thanks for the laugh! Paul
  20. Claudio, that is a superb bar! Hope it did not break the bank... Sorry to hear of Georges death, he sounded like a good man, and a Knowledgeable collector. My condolences to his family. Regards Paul
  21. Ed! Super medals indeed! thanks for showing! Are all these medals yours? wow! you must have a super duper collection! just an aside...did you find anything on that Pir Baksh of the 5th Punjabi regiment??? The one that Sam Moss asked you about...its coming to reside in my collection...Yay! Thanks! cheers Paul
  22. This wee group has surfaced down here on our local Trademe site... Comprising of 4 medals to a Pakistani chap. here is some info from the seller... A good Pakistan group of 4 medals on an old court mounting. The medals are the Independence Medal (1947) (wrong ribbon), The Wiliadat-I-Quaid-I-Azim Medal (the founder of Pakistan -like a coronation medal) 1976, The Hijri Medal 1979, and another I have not identified yet. The first medal is impressed to 199 F C BAQIR KHAN (I assume it is Foot Constable or Frontier Constable) If anyone wants this group...i will be happy to help. Cheers Paul
  23. Nice Set Darrell! And even nicer long medalbar! I see he even got down here to our little port Lyttelton....!! here in the south Island of New Zealand... He certainly got around... Cheers Paul
  24. Hello Gents, another item added to the collection... I need to know what this Eagle is for... Is it a Heer Generals summer tunic breast eagle? Or is it a Kreigsmarine breast eagle?? Please help! Many regards Paul
