  1. Here is a new photo to my collection A group of gentlemen from 1866? - 1870 War , I will post a couple of zooms so you can better se the medals ! Regards Christer
  2. Here is my collection of Finnish Minis , I think these are like small pieces of art So much detail and beautiful workmanship . Enjoy ! First is a four with Order of White Rose , medal for bravery 1918 1st class , Prussian Red Cross , Hinderburg Cross. Next a Duo with Order of The Lion and Pro Begnigata Humana ( the last from 1945 given to civilians mostly who helped during the war) Now a four again, with Swedisg Order of North Star in 18K Gold, Order of the White Rose Knight 1st class also in 18K Gold, Liberty Cross 4th class w Red Cross 1941 and PBH (Only 861 LC w Red Cross 1941 was awarded so its quite unusual) Then a single Libert Cross 4th class ( not marked but probably 1941 version) A really scarce one ! A Liberty Cross 3rd Cl w Red Cross 1941 or 1939 ( 48 awarded 1939 and 338 1941 ) And next a single 4th cl w Red Cross A single medal for bravery 1941 1st cl w Red Cross for medics This is almost the Holy Grail of Finnish minis , a 2nd class 1941 for non combat ( only 53 awarded so you dont see these to often ...) And the last one , Liberty Cross for non combat 1918 4th cl, Order of White Rose , EK II , Com medal for 1918 war , HEK ( probably a member of 27th Jaeger Btl 1918) Christer

  8. Hi, just want to show my awards from Finland. i don´t have the $$$$$$$ stuff , but still got a collection worth showing I think. I start from the beginning in 1918 My first item is a Commerative medal for participating in the war 1918 , made by Sporrong & Co Stockholm Sweden in about 100 000 pieces given to all that took part in the war , including Germans +12000 and Swedish + 1000. This medal have the bar 2 Karjala Rintama " which means Carelian Front , they could also be awarded with a rose on the ribbon for bravery.

  17. Finland Minis

    Hi Lars , After looking at it IRL I totally agree with you , the order is to wrong to be Finnish and as you say , the first one could be Belgium instead. Well I got two nice minis from Finland and now on the hunt for a Crown Order and a Polish one Probably more easy to find than a FLC II .... Christer
  18. Finland anyone?

    Wow , Nice collection !
  19. Finland Minis

    A new one , with a owner that has done what ? Finnish Order of the Lion Knight 1st Class , Finnish Liberty Cross 2nd Class Civilian , and French Agricultural Merit Order Officer Strictly he should have the FLC II before the Lion Order but the French Order is quite rare it is one of the highest Orders and instututed in 1887 and since then only about 60 000 has been awarded and I suppose most to French citizens . Probably some professor , I will try and find out who it could be The combination must be unusual
  20. Hi all, Just bought this small ribbon bar , but unsure of what it is ? 1897 Preussen- Sachsen House Order - ?- ? Any ideas ? Christer
  21. Thanks all, I got it home now and it really looks lika 1897 - Saxe -Coburg -Merit Medal - 1905 Saxe Coburg Hochzeit - Phillips Orden Hessen Maybe some sort of civil servant Christer
  22. Finland Minis

    Very nice chain ! Dj-Joe , a 2nd class indeed christer
  23. When you look at the backside of this simple medal it dosn´t look very exciting ... Finnish Medal for Courage 2nd class , Winter war 1939 , awarded 115 842 times. Well well, but when you turn it around This one is the one with Red Cross awarded to Nurses most and possible some Pte Medic , awarded 241 ! times a rare one for sure Christer
  24. A new rare one !

    The Red Cross is part of the satamping, so they are made from different tools then the " normal" ones Christer
