    I'm collecting miniature Orders & Decorations from the Older European Kingdoms, preferrably before 1918. However, beeing from Denmark, I would take an special interest in the Scandinavian Countries.

    Islam Lodge Golden Jubilee Medal 1926

    I was recently looking for something else and came across some pages dealing with masonic stuff, refound them just now with a simple google search, could it perhaps have something to do with these gentlemen from the "Lodge Islam"? Seems to be a popular theme, we can probably rule out these 4 danish comedians who have created a highly popular show called "Sons of the Desert" - due to age But perhaps you'll find useful info in this book:
  2. And also a thank you for the info from here, I actually never realized that the lower grades could be "bought". I bought the group at a local auction here, the ribbons are a typical Danish mounting so I'm quite convinced that the recipient was actually a Dane. A miniature group was present as well Regards, Lars
  3. Thanks for your comments, it may be so, I just assumed that the Red Cross organization would political independant, so although they changed the design it would still be a continued award. And yes, it's a Danish mounting, so if you're having one on a similar ribbon it have most likely been worn by a Dane! /Lars
  4. I got this nice group recently, it contains an Austrian 1923 Red Cross Order (quite rare with only 89 awards) as well as an 1864-1914 Red Cross Order plus an Portugese Red Cross Order. I assume the two Austrian decorations would basically be the same award given in Imperial times and during the Republic. Have anybody seen such a combination before and would it have been normal practise to award both?
  5. Thank you for your opinion allthough I had hoped for an ID. So it still remains a mystery.

  8. Although a miniature decoration I believe it could be this award? /Lars
  9. A little help from our Norwegian members would be appreciated. I have had this miniature medal for some time, I cannot figure out what it is, but am hoping for a little help here. I assume it's Norwegian because it's made by Tostrup, but it can of course be from somewhere else. Any help here? /Lars

    Serbian For Bravery medal, 1876

    Both, thank you for a prompt answer and clarification that the document doesn't belong to the group - which I had assumed for many years. /Lars

    Serbian For Bravery medal, 1876

    This group I sold 20 years ago, now I got it back. Nothing amazing, but a nice simple group. The bravery medal is silver, but without hallmarks of any kind, yet an attactive sharp striking. Originally it came together with this document, but I actually don't know if they match, maybe someone here can confirm that this is the correct document for this medal, and if not, what it is? /Lars
  12. Good evening Andreas. Of course you would have an example on a bar, thanks for showing. Is yours Silver as well or is it bronze gilded? /Lars
  13. All, I recently got this, Is it correct that the ribbon is the same as for the House Order, 35 mm and equal sized red stribes? Would anybody have a length of original ribbon or should I turn to eBay? According to Schemeit this should be gilded bronze, but this piece is gilded Silver (marked 930 as I see it). Assuming Schemeit is correct, is this then a private purchase or earlier/later type or did they came in both gilded bronze and Silver? Would anybody here have a spare miniature of this decoration? /Lars
  14. 922F, just a quick remark, Kai Meyer made restrikes of several Danish medals (mostly with original dies which he borrowed from the Mint, still they differs from the originals), but never foreign Orders, but he may very well have sold them as with other items (3rd Reich stuff) he bought from for example Souval.

    A quite rare "Gestickter Stern des Hubertus-Ordens zur Supraweste der Kgl. Bayerische Leibgarde der Hartschiere". The photo of the full west is taken from an online auction and is just added to show how this was worn. As I'm no expert in these things so I have contacted the Bavarian Army Museum to inquire about the written number on the reverse. I got a kind reply saying that this embroidered star of the Order of St. Hubertus originally belonged to the Bavarian Army Museum. The inventory number located on the back is the proof. But this star was officially replaced in 1936 by another object in an exchange with a collector. It measures 28 * 28 cm. Price is 1000 euro, postage is 30 euro from here, preferred method of payment is a banktransfer.
