  5. Hello, at the PlM I always pick up the Lehmann (1740 - 1913 in chronological order) or the Möller (1914-1918 in alphabetical order. These books are very rare.The Lehmann is online, the Möller unfortunately not. I once copied the numbers from the Möller and attached the link to the Lehmann below for those interested. Best regards Walter. http://gdz.sub.uni-goettingen.de/dms/load/toc/?PPN=PPN135808596&IDDOC=287805
  6. Hello Martin At the higher levels, you should be extra careful. MVK 1 with crown and swords is very often forged. An original of Leser you can see in my post above. Exactly so an original must look by Leser. Other versions of Leser are not original. Regards Walter
  7. ... The decoration of the order consists of officers or civil servants in the officer rank, as well as those "Hof und Staatsdiener" as well as clergymen who have the rank of a golden cross of honor, for members of lower rank from a "Goldenen Ehrenmünze". @ Chris: Vielleicht kannst Du diese Übersetzung korrigieren. Da wird es für mich, mit meinem schlechten Englisch, schon sehr mühsam. Gruß Walter
  8. Servus, wanted to introduce my Christmas present here too. It is the honorary coin of the Bavarian Ludwigsorden. She was in receipt of a return, which is why she does not turn up often. Best regards Walter
  9. Yes, the processing of the awards took a very long time
  10. Hello, the medal was donated to commemorate the hundredth birthday of Emperor Wilhelm I. The circle of people was relatively large. It was awarded u.a. to all persons of the active army and the active navy, members of the protection troops and also to veterans of the wars 1864, 1866 and 1870/71. The award number should be well over one million medals. I hope, that helps you a bit. Best regards Walter
  11. I would like to come back to Ferdinand Schörner. At the end he lived impoverished in a nursing home in Munich / Nymphenburg. I knew a postman from my neighborhood who always brought him the mail. After Schörners death, his son inherited everything. Whether there was really anything that was auctioned at the auction house, came from his direct possession / heritage, I doubt it. Every time a known name comes into play, it capitalizes on it. Some awards often appear several times in different ways. As already mentioned in a post, the principle still applies, buy only the medal and not the story. Was Schörner's Medal Bar really worth the money?.... I dont know, but i have a guess. Best regards Walter
