  1. Prices just went down. To much hot air in the last years. Normal consolidation. dede
  2. Hello collector-friends, in this case my research know-how was not for use. Maybe someone out there is able to identify the former owner. Regards Detlef
  3. Thanks Dave for your inputs. So, the research goes on. Tricky thing indeed.
  4. Hello everybody, I could aquire these medals. It was said that the medals should have belonged to a German Officer who participated in the Liberation war in Finland 1918. The medals are: Prussia: Roter Adler-Orden, cross 4th class Prussia: Kronenorden, cross 4th class Iron cross Finnish Liberty cross 2nd class Finnish Liberty medal 1st class 1918 Offiziers-Dienstauszeichnung für 25 Jahre Centenar medal Mecklenburg-Schwerin Militärverdienstkreuz 2nd class 1914 Braunschweiger (Brunswick) Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2nd class 1914 My hope to identify him with your help is raised by the 2 Prussian decorations. Any ideas are very much appreciated. Cheers
  5. Ok, I just was wondering how pictures from my collection could appear from nowhere in this thread.
  6. Hello tompress, from where do you have this nice document posted in ID:12? Cheers Chris
  7. Thanks guys. The medal of Liberation war 1918 was given in the 30s. So it can be assumed that the soldier already was dead at that time. And where shall I put the Kronenorden? After the Red Eagle? Cheers
  8. What would be a common sequence for the medals? I plan to fix em on a medal bar. By the way: Does anybody has an old empty medal bar, long enough to fix all medals (except the medal of Liberty)?
  9. Ok, so let's assume only the Liberty cross was awarded. Is it possible to track the former owner? I mean possible regarding the two Prussian decorations AND the fact that he got the Finnish award? 25 years Dienstauszeichnung + the fact that he possibly did not get any Hindenburg medal due to his death. And the Mecklenburg medal - maybe he was in the Jägerbattailon No. 14?
  10. I see the point. Ok, the medal of liberty anyhow does not help very much to identify the person. Or the liberty cross is wrong in the ensemble.
  11. Dzien dobry, it is a German manufacture. I have a Liberty cross first class 1918 and the manufacture or style of production looks similar. Detlef
  12. THIS ADVERT HAS EXPIRED!

  13. Another fake from am-militaria: http://m.ebay.de/itm/194-Ordensspange-1914-33-9tlg-Reuss-Finnland-Osterreich-Mecklenburg-/331952527324?hash=item4d49e997dc%3Ag%3AqroAAOSw65FXwY8b&_trkparms=pageci%3A521ab568-6e06-11e6-93e5-74dbd1803c16%7Cparentrq%3Ad7260e851560a6228f34635dfff99cca%7Ciid%3A3
  14. http://www.kube-auktionen.de/ lot 823 starting price 2000 € sometimes good stuff at this auction house next auction 22.10.2016 regards Detlef
  15. Yeah, that is a good point. But why to fake - professionally - a Frackspange? Frackspangen are - as far as I am concerned - not that popular than "normal" medal bars. This would be an exceptional and rare fraud in history: Faking everything so professional...and in the end, not trying to maximize the potential profit...like planning a perfect murder but still get caught. I am just defending this medal bar...may the history play a dirty trick in that case
  16. Hello collector-friends, yesterday I blacklightened the Frackspange at an auctionhouse in Stuttgart - nothing glew...and the nice owner of the auction house told that it looks quite genuine. Also the miniatyre chain. So, the search goes on...maybe in the meantime (3 years since I started the topic), some valuable hints have been found to reveal the history of this bar. Regards Detlef
  17. As far as i know, the fourth medal was awarded decades after 1917/18
  18. Nice bar. The soldier received the finnish liberation medal in 1938, but did not get the Hindenburg cross in 1935. maybe just a small part of a formely large medal bar detlef
  19. How do you like it? Fantastic and rare, especially the second medal (golden cross of merit of the Zähringer Lion) Price about 5000 e. Misiu
  20. I do not see any badge...where it is? Dede
