  1. Thank you all for your help and informations. Steve, if you are so kind to post some pics, it will be very interesting to appreciate the differences you've noticed Best Regards
  2. Hi everybody. I'm a new member of the forum and I'm asking you some help regarding the Mecklenburg House Order of the Wendish Crown. As far as I know the differences between the decorations of the Mecklenburg grand duchies were the motto appearing around the crown on the obverse of the center medallion ("Per Aspera ad Astra" for Mecklenburg-Schwerin and "Avito Viret Honore" for Mecklenburg-Strelitz) and the grand ducal ciphers for the founders on the reverse of the center medallion ("FF" for Mecklenburg-Schwerin and "FW" for Mecklenburg-Strelitz). In a recent militaria fair I came across an odd combination: a knight cross with obverse "Per Aspera ad Astra" and reverse with ciphers "FW". I've hold that piece (not bought yet). Could it be related in the last period of the war when Friedrich Franz IV of Mecklenburg-Schwerin was regent of Mecklenburg-Strelitz or there something wrong with it ? Any comments welcome. Thanks in advance.
