  1. 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.

    Very nice. This is a late production of Hemmerle (1918) with silver guilt medaillon. I have never seen blue paper.
    Normally this cross was  in a red paperbox. The first class was awarded to the rank Feldwebel-Leutnant.

    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..

    Thanks, I have two other ribbon bars of this man with the Hindenburg Cross.

    Can anyone tell me more of what these wartime assignments?



    Here’s another ribbon bar. It’s named to Reinhard Thaler, 1871-1938;

    1914 Captain Telegraphen Btl 6

    0000-0000 Commander of the Signal Troops at Great Headquarter of the German Army

    would like more details. I wonder if he was awarded any Prussian orders in WW1.
