  1. Hello, i just found this topic and thought i could add some pics of a roup i own. best regards. Detlev
  2. Thanks for all the helpful information and the great photo. Best regards. Detlev
  3. Hi Jon, unfortunately, i ve only this picture. This group came together with groups of other family members and a list of names. Just in case. This group is on auction in march. Best regards. Detlev
  4. Hello, thx to the research gnomes here in the forum, i ve left only one group in my collection without knowing who the original wearer was. From the combination of the awards i think it s impossible to find it out. But the group comes with a list of names of family members who took part in WW1 and WW2. So i don t know, could it be possible to identify the man with the given names? Also i ve a nice picture of him wearing the Feldspange. Some other collectors thinking that he is wearing the ribbon of the blood order on the photo, which i don t think. Maybe it s the romanian award. here are the names from the list which i think could be him. Oberst Fritz von Otto, kia 23.4.1942 Major Robert Baerwald Major Eugen Wahl Wilhelm Böhler thx in advance for any help Best regards Detlev
  5. Hi Chris, so we can stick our heads together and cry in the beer. Prob it s the same guy who own my Kreta and Erdkampf award docs. I was able to buy the beautiful para group through an auction. Only these two docs were missing. Later on they were found and sold on Militaria321, which i missed. I offered twice the price he paid and the same doc from another person, but no way. Off course you are right, it s his decision, but there is not really logical reason, or? So lets wait for the miracle. Best regards Detlev
  6. Hello, here are some pictures of a group which was recently sold in an auction. So probably some of you have already seen it. I ve a few questions regarding his awards on the picture. Is he wearing the china medal on his bar? i can t find anything about a service there. Also i read that he got his "Ritter" because of his MMJO which i think is not correct, because he received the order of the crown first. Is there any source where i can find the reason for the awarding of the order of the crown?I do have the explanations for the PLM and the MMJO and I ve his Kriegsstammrolle from Ancestry, but it s very tough to read. I als would appreciate if anybody can provide another picture of him. Best regards Detlev
  7. Hi Dave, thxs for your reply. I didn t know about the bavarian crown. Best regards Detlev

    Super Bombastic EK Docs....

    Hi, i just found this thread and would like to add this one. Not in the best condition, but still nice. Best regards Detlev
  18. Hello, recently i could acquire this nice hessian bar from another collector. I was already looking for a long time for one with a Philipsorden with swords. So, i always try at least to understand a bit how the research for a name is done and then try to investigate by my own with my very limited sources. Looking at this bar, i would guess that it must belong to a prussian officer of the VII or VIII army corp. Getting the Philipsorden prob. as a young Leutnant etc. in the 1870/71 war. Still in service 1897. If i would have the sources, i would look at the names of the holder of the Philipsorden 1st class with swords and compare them with the names of the regimens in the ranglist around 1871. maybe complete nonsense, but learning by doing. So if this one is possible to research, i would be very grateful. best regards Detlev
  19. Hi Rick, thank you very much again for taking the time to do this. Fantastik that the bar now has a name. I see, it is still a very long way to go to make some resenable research on my own. Best regards Detlev
  20. Hello, thx very much for this great offer. I would like to add these "two". When i bought them i thought they belonged to two different persons. Later the miniature chain was found and now i think it might be that the wearer just split it up in one for his war duties and the other one. However is there an identification possible with these awards. Best regards Detlev
