  1. Agreed, and I would view with a jaundiced eye anything from this dealer.
  2. Hi John, That is a remarkable piece of history, congratulations. I think your piece of ribbon is from a Studentika watch fob or similar.
  3. Ooh, that is cool, I like these weird medical combinations.
  4. The reverse hardware is definitely not Zimmermann, but the cross looks nice.
  5. Hi Claudio, Very fine Schnalle, and very interesting combination, with the Weltkrieg Spange moved over. Since you like Godet Schnallen the best, you can give this one to me.
  6. Boy, I never cease to get confused by these K.u.K. ribbon bars....
  7. Tom is right, and there are numerous variations in the jeweler pieces, and a subculture of collectors who like them.
  8. I believe the EK1 case is an early WW1 example. Ones from 1870 are extremely rare. You have a case for the Friedrich Order, which looks to be a real gold award piece. The MVO is marked for Weiss & Co. A very interesting grouping. The mini medal bar is also great.
  9. Very interesting group of items, the Gallipoli Star is a real gem, not often seen with a genuine case. What markings are on the BMVO4mK?
  10. Not a ommon medal, and hard to find mounted. I have a cased example on a bow, and one on a bar.
  11. Not the best photos, but I think it looks good. These things are very scarce.
  12. Agreed, there are so many issues with that bar, I don't know where to start.
  13. That is a very interesting bar, I've never seen that device for the MVK before.
  14. Agreed, really nice bars. I've always had a soft spot for Lippe.
  15. Nice and very scarce award. I have one in my lifesaving collection.
  16. Looks like a 1957 version by Steinhauer & Lueck. These are sought after as they are not that common.
  17. Hi Seeheld, very nice medal bar, I was watching this one. Congratulations.
  18. LOL John, I've been on crutches quite a bit lately due to an accident, so no joking about such things. On a lighter note, I'm looking forward to your project regarding our friend Buttlar. My dad was impressed that he was a Pour le Merite winner, since he grew up in East Prussia, where such orders were held in high regard.
  19. You got that right. I'm still annoyed that I missed the von Lossnitzer medal bar that came up on the 'other forum' some years ago, and was snagged by member Alex.
  20. D'oh, I chalk that up to early-onset dementia, constantly repeating myself. Have a good new year.
