    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

  12. Four years ago our friend Auseklis from this Forum indicated that BB&Co of the Turkish War Medal stands for Binder Brüder & Co. from Lüdensheid. This Company was also mentioned amongst the German medal makers. So far non of our friends from the Forum said anything about it. I would be glad to hear your opinions. Also did German Companies used Co. for company and is the German sign for "and" is "&" ? Is it possible for our German friends to get in touch this Company and ask whether they ever produced TWMs. http://www.gebr-binder.de/ Regards Demir
