    Turkish Nurse Safiye Hüseyin Elbi with TWM

    Hello, I can only confirm the Turkish awards which I mentioned, since I don't know red cross awards but in one of the essays about her I found out that she received the Florence Nightingale Medal. More info: The first Turkish Nurse by TAHA TOROS : http://earsiv.sehir.edu.tr:8080/xmlui/bitstream/handle/11498/43714/001641145010.pdf?sequence=1&isAllowed=y

  4. Hi, I recently bought this beautifully made red enamel TWM pin made by A.H. Schemtob Constantinople. The pin is either for a lapel or a hat with a loop buttonhole for stiching. The design in the enamel looks like J.H.Werner style, star in the middle under the tougra and rays at the arms, it is is more visible on the pin without enamel. Regards Demir PS: There was another one (which I did not buy) without enamel. (see picture)

    Gallipoli Star (real or fake)

    Hello Abtomat, 1. You said what is the title: "It's "specimen type L" in my book about all the original and fake types of the "Iron Crescent" what is the title? 2. You said: " only the 2 Ottoman original types and all German/Austrian pieces manufactured from 1915 to 1919 are the real original ones." What are the two original types, can you post their photos? Thanks Demir
  10. Thanks Alex, For the correction and I will try to change the background. Best wishes Demir

    It is not 5th class because it seems that the part where the tughra is not silver and I wouldn't suggest this one. Regards
