  1. can't find the cross i mentioned in the above post right now, but i'm pretty sure this is a partial 'wus' mark, for wagner und sohn, berlin p.s. or was it werner und sohn?
  2. i think i have something similar, just haven't found it yet. another thing to consider is that there is a possibility that it could be a partial ldo or pkz number
  3. would it be possible to provide images of the entire cross? perhaps the core and frame characteristics will provide insight.

  9. even grander....
  10. here's a tinnie that i have always kind of been interested in-- i finally got around to acquiring an example. it's for a rally/gathering that took place nearly 10 years after the war and i'm sure that the design appealed to many dmv members. from a distance it is very similar in appearance to a prinzen-sized flight/aviation award, and i'd wager that this organization had a fair amount of veterans.
  11. here's an item i posted way back in november of 2008
  12. oh absolutely, trevor. we will never know the particulars, and it could have had an rather interesting life with it's original owner. sometimes i prefer these examples over a pristine 'old stock' example that has languished unsold in a shop's back room.
