  1. Thanks for your comments The Albert order is unmarked (but looks like a Glaser piece) and the Merit order has a "R" (Rosner) in the low arm
  2. A nice saxon frack bar with saxon style trifold ribbon, probably belonged to a Lieutenant
  3. A Lübeck bar The EK is a Otto Schickle EK II (one piece construction and non magnetic)
  4. Many thanks Sascha Of course, for my, the Kuenker's auction catalogs are a very valuable source of knowledge
  5. In the auction 192 of Kunker there was an Ernestinischer Hausorden, Ritterkreuz 2. Klasse mit Schwertern. In the explanatory text it is suggested that the french swords style of the SEHO indicate origin of Sachsen-Altenburg's duchy...Can someone confirm this? I thought that the style of the swords (roman or french) was depending on the manufacturer who had made the decoration. The book " Ehrenzeichen des herzogtums Sachsen-Altemburg " shows pics with SEHO with both styles of swords: french and roman
  6. The order of precedence of the Kuhn's medal bar it's correct?...or both St. Henry medals should be placed ahead the Albert order?
  7. To compare differents craftmanship: a Scharffenberg SV3aX recently sold (ebay.de)
  8. I think that this decoration is currently underpriced: the current market price is similar to a HOHX (more than 8000 awards) I would like to know how many of the 422 awarded "survived" currently..... of course, it is impossible to know
  9. Congratulations, a lovely and scarce piece. Here's my SV3aX and SV3bX: The SV3bX shows a "R" mark in the lower arm (Roessner), the SV3aX it's unmarked (probably a G.H.Osang piece)
  10. Congrats, a lovely piece. The manufacturer is probably the Koniglichen Munzamt in Stuttgart. To distinguish a Friedrichsorden of E. Fohr of an exemplar of the National Mint is relatively simple, but a Wurttemberg MVO....is more difficult.
  11. I only know that Büchner was the scourge of the American SPAD in September, 1918 You can find some info in this book: "Jagdgeschwader Nr II "Berthold" (Osprey) http://books.google.es/books?id=GcksYw2rJicC&pg=PA99&lpg=PA99&dq=FRANZ+BUCHNER+AMERICAN+SPAD&source=bl&ots=VtPkkLW_Gf&sig=z_07jmjKLdZuIM0ZchvNKm4pZ4o&hl=es&sa=X&ei=Yq0CT5z9BoG2hQfgmqytAQ&ved=0CCkQ6AEwAQ#v=onepage&q=FRANZ%20BUCHNER%20AMERICAN%20SPAD&f=false
  12. Hi Don, One of the marks of the ring looks like a silver mark: "Diana head 2A" (silver 900) Regards
