  1. I would very much like to check out if and when the Swedish diplomat and general Gustaf Carl Fredrik Löwenhielm (1771 - 1856) received the following orders: Order of Saint Alexander Nevsky (I know there is a book with a list of recipients, but my Russian is extremely bad). Order of Saint Anna Order of Saint Vladimir Anyone?
  2. I don't think it is an official ribbon. It was sold to wear in a necklace. So if I don't see a few more of this with the black ribbon I assume it was private made, but it could absolutely be by a Prussian.
  3. As far as I know it was only sold. But of course some young lady could have given hers away or the soldier could have bought one. Loos also made a serie of small medals for all the battles in the 6th coalition war, which I guess many of the participants bought.
  4. Dear Jaybo, It was struck by Loos at Berliner Medaillen-Münze in 1813. https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daniel_Friedrich_Loos It was sold to patriotic women in Germany to wear in a necklace. So it had no ribbon and was not awarded. "SUUM CUIQUE" is latin and means something like "EACH HIS OWN". At the top of the reverse you see the hebrew letters YHVH, which means Jehova.
  5. Great Dane is right, it can be awarded in connection with state visits and when the King is abroad.
  6. The Norwegian medal is H.M. The King’s Commemorative Medal (H.M. Kongens erindringsmedalje), a royal decoration of Norway. Established in 1906 by King Haakon VIII, the medal is awarded to individuals for particularly meritorious service to the King. It is usually with a crown:
  7. It is a plaquette with the Norwegian War Cross. It was made and sold by Samlerhuset a few years ago. You could in total buy 12 different plaquettes with different medals and orders of the world. I think the price was about NOK 500 (a little less than GBP 50). There were, as you have seen, made 5000 sets. The value in this condition is a lot less than the original price.
