  1. It’s not an original. Hopefully you are successful getting a refund. If you used a cc you can dispute the purchase. Theres probably little channce the seller really thought it to be real
  2. That EK does show lots of character. Wonderful
  3. I’m amazed how you guys ID these medals... ive always loved these awards since the day I saw all classes displayed for sell in a dealer’s shop in Nuremberg in 1988. I couldn’t afford anything but the lower classes. It took years for me to acquire several higher grades and im thrilled to own an MVO2, MVO3, MVO4mS, MVO4, MVK2, MVK3mS, MVK3. I would love to find an MVK1 sometime. Hi, it an MVK1 was awarded to a Feldwebel-Luetnant then was the MVK1 with Cross for an Offiziersstellvertreter? I’ve never fully understood the awarding of the various grades..
  4. Shoulder boards of GeneralLt Wilhelm von Hohezollern Füsilier-Regiment „Fürst Karl-Anton von Hohenzollern“ (Hohenzollernsches) Nr. 40 Regimentschef General der Infanterie Fürth Wilhelm von Hohenzollern
  5. Here’s a photo of several of my ribbon bars. The top is a 16 place shared before of an OberstLt A few more are ID’d but I can’t find the file on my PC.
  6. Very nice... would look great in a framed display
  7. I dont Have a copy but Barry Turk may have one.
  8. Wow, that’s a superb medal bar. I have a SMKFVM and have been looking for a similar bar for display. thanks for sharing.
  9. Very nice and super ribbon bar. I’m a big time ribbon bar person.
  10. I’ve been searching about for information on the Hohenzollern princes and noticed Karl has many orders with swords and no Iron Cross so I wonder what combat he saw prior to WW1. Was he in Africa? Then a WW1 shot 1915 or later. I think he was a GeneralLt. I can’t tell if he is wearing boards with Regiments he was “a la suite” or plain general boards
  11. It’s definitely a lovely well crafted decoration. Even though not original it’s still nice enough for display. Im not too interested in this type of decoration but it’s still very nice.
  12. That is a wonderful group.
  13. Can you get a better photo of the ribbon bar?
  14. I just realized I have this CD somewhere in collection but haven’t seen it since I moved. I need to find it and transfer to a flash drive. I only have one laptop left with a CD rom as I recall, it’s very helpful
