  1. Greetings and thanks dedehansen. What a wonderful picture - a classic! Knowing, however, that this magnificent medal bar was at some time broken up, I must say that I cannot look at it without some regret. Can you imagine it. Thank you again and I hope that you enjoyed a Happy Easter Season as well. Wild Card
  2. Thank you Komtur for your excellent and very interesting explanation in post #85 - alles ist klar! Best wishes, Wild Card
  3. If I am not mistaken, on that Mecklenburg bar (post #80), I see a pre 1908 Red Eagle medal on the Hohenzollern ribbon in there. Any idea as to what this was awarded for? Quite rare, very nice indeed and congratulations!
  4. Medal bar and miniature medal/ribbon bar to Major zD Lothar Bollstetter, Cdr. Landwehrbezirk Calw. Sorry, no lions.
  5. With regard to the Württemberg silver honor cross for 1815, shown in post #248, a gold version was also awarded.
  6. 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.
  7. What a nice start to a mini collection. Congratulations Wild Card
  8. A truly beautiful example of a very rare (under appreciated) medal. Congratulations! Wild Card
  9. Sorry. The cross may be good, but those swords are very wrong.
  10. Here is a little fellow that showed up in Louisville. It's all about the bars - not often seen on minis, I think.
