  1. Medal bar and miniature medal/ribbon bar to Major zD Lothar Bollstetter, Cdr. Landwehrbezirk Calw. Sorry, no lions.
  2. With regard to the Württemberg silver honor cross for 1815, shown in post #248, a gold version was also awarded.
  3. How well I know, these little guys can really get to you. I once felt the same way, but now, forty years later, I'm still hooked. How I wish that I could find that straight line again.
  4. What a nice start to a mini collection. Congratulations Wild Card
  5. A truly beautiful example of a very rare (under appreciated) medal. Congratulations! Wild Card
  6. Sorry. The cross may be good, but those swords are very wrong.
  7. Here is a little fellow that showed up in Louisville. It's all about the bars - not often seen on minis, I think.
  8. Your observation is correct. I am afraid that only the person who can explain this is the one who assembled it. An obvious explanation, in cases like this, would be that the proper ribbon was not available; but we know that this is not the case because, if I am not mistaken, the iron cross is mounted on that proper ribbon. So, I guess that we will never know. Best wishes, Wild Card
  9. Bavarian Baking Association? Very interesting!
  10. Greetings Andreas! The number on Feldwebel Hermann Stude’s Georgskreuz is 29841. Thanks for asking, I am surprised that no one asked sooner. Best wishes, Wild Card
  11. Japan X, Congratulations and thank you for an astounding example of research. Wild Card
