  2. Ah, you bought it. Really nice to see a better picture, I was a little curious. A beautiful miniature I never knew existed before it came up.
  3. Westfale, I like it! I'm also quite taken by these small enamelled bars. If you're interested in Württemberg I can show you a enamelled 9 years service bar for NCO's 1874-1892! I suspect this is more common than yours. / Lars

  7. Mostly for you, Rudi. A rather small version, 12 * 14 mm.
  8. Well, my bet is that he's wearing a 1906-37 type Olav Commanders 1st class set. The ciphers of the Oscar type is very distinct and different from the ones on the photo (look below) and there's no lion above the crown. But interesting that he have an India Mutiny and 50 years later he gets a Olav Commander 1st class without having anything else. It's probably too late, but somebody should teach him the basics about mounting the ribbon !!!
  9. Hi Christer. Nice collection, but I have some thoughts on your last group. If this were to a Finnish recipient he would never had the FLC and the Lion mounted in that order, and if he were FLC II I would have expected that he had something else as well. I cannot really see the true colour of the first ribbon, but my initial thought by looking at the ribbons would be Belgium Order of Leopold, Poland Order of Polonia Restituta and (correct) France Order of Agriculture Although this may not be correct it seems that the group have been assembled later than sewn. There's absolutely no reason for the Agriculture to be mounted in this crude way with a huge steel ring btw the ribbon and the badge, the miniature would have been sewn neatly into the ribbon. /Lars

  11. Just aquired an early Christmas gift for myself! Let me present a superb group from the early wars with 3 miniatures artistic mounted from a silver bar : Fürstentum Reuss: Ehrenkreuz für die Feldzüge 1814/1815, Austria: Silbernes Zivilehrenkreuz 1814, Fürstentum Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt: Erinnerungskreuz für 1814/15. The Austrian cross appears to be quite rare with only 149 awards according ti the litterature I have. The group was darker than black when I got it, but with a gentle cleaning we can see some fine details, especially of the Schwarzburg cross.
  12. Another miniature that just came in, 15 * 26 mm.
  13. All, this should be the "Seglerschaft der Luftwaffe im Marine-Regatta-Verein", it's listed in Hüskens book as number 8724, but it's not illustrated, Would anybody be able to confirm this? Don? /Lars
  14. Joseph, indeed, with a very few exceptions I collect miniatures only! Regards, Lars
  15. Hi Alpha, unfortunately no pic of the reverse, just thought it would be of interest. Regards, Lars
  16. Well, one mysterious Sava, thinking about the star . Not mine, a picture from the net!
  17. A nice group with a Japanese WW1 Victory medal which is quite rarely seen as miniature. I would say it's most likely a mid war group from a Japanese diplomat, appr around 1920-30?
  18. Someone should tell that museum that the Dannebrog have to be reversed
  19. Andreas, HUGE mistake, it's a Frederik VIII But check your message folder! Regards, Lars
  20. Queen Victorias miniature group is something every collector would give an arm and a leg to get - sadly, or happily it's not available on the open market A few more of the Bulgarian miniature, the first is a nice 18 ct gold example, the second a more humble bronze gilted badge!
  21. I could contribute with a miniature medal, if this is the type you're looking for? Manufature etc totally unknown, but an interesting reverse!
  22. What you have is the 16 years service cross for NCO's missing it's proper suspension. According to Stevnsborg 800 crosses were made between 1831-1839 on the Royal Mint, as stated in their protocols. The number of crossed produced between 1817-1831 is not known. But using common sense it could be assumed that a larger number would have been produced during the first 14 years than in the later 8 years? So not super rare, but not a cross that often appears outside of Denmark either. Hope this helps? /Lars
  23. In a large and expanding universe like the GMIC there would be different topics covering the same items. I read this topic yesterday evening and was quite amazed in seing this production sample from an old french producer. The badge I got recently is very clearly made by this company and although allready presented on GMIC in another topic I'd thought I would doublepost the pictures for comparison in this topic. The other topic I'm referring to is:
  24. Remember, when speaking miniatures everything is possible! In respect of beeing period or not I would certainly buy an argument like "we know these were produced by xxx in the late 1970ies" or "the gilding is a shiny modern one never used during that period" or "these are some of the Hungarian fakes that can be had in large quantities on eBay" or similar! I would not buy an argument like "you have two made by the same producer" or "it's gilded and it should not be". But you are entitled to your opinion, you don't believe in them and that's it, I do ;o) Regards, Lars
  25. OK, I understand there's no air gunners badge, this I already wrote, but that's one of the things you often see when talking miniatures, I understand they are from the same producer, this is obvious, but that doesn't make them not period. When I have them in my hands and compare them to other pins there's nothing telling me they are not period. So I believe we can agree in disagreeing. If anybody else would have any proof of these not beeing period I'd be happy to listen.
