  1. I recently got an example of the Latvian flying badge to compare to the drawing shown earlier here ...
  2. Uwe and Peter, thank you for your comments, and sorry for this late reply. Uwe, after having spent some time on the net I understand that these "Siegespfennig" would be private purchases to commemorate a certain event, and should not be confused with miniature medals although they have the size and appereance as such, is this correct. Or would they be worn together with other miniature decorations? Lars
  3. Wild Card, a beautiful miniature, respect! Perhaps you'll be able to help me a little with your knowledge about these early miniatures. I recently got this one, I assume it's from Hessen, but I cannot find out exactly what it is, and from which part of Hessen - apart from the obvious text; .... Leipzig 1813. Any info on this one? Regards, Lars
  4. Gents, I hoping for a little help in identifying a Norwegian freedom fighter, I'm hoping some of our Norwegian members would use their knowledge here. The man on this photo is my now deceased fathers cousin, I found the picture some years ago but my fathers memory faded and he could not remember his cousins name anymore. I do have some clues about this person based on what my father could remember: 1. One of my fathers mothers (my grandmother) cousins were Max Manus, so he could be related to him, but I'm not sure of the family relations in Norway 2. He was quite upset about the German occupation and joined the resistance forces quite early in the war, my father remembered he was quite "active". 3. He was killed by the Germans during the war, this photo is dated 22/11-1942 on the reverse, assuming this is the date the photo were taken he must have been alive by then 4. He's last name could be "Bogstad", but this is based on my fathers family name and may not be so. Regards, Lars
  5. Hello, just wanted to show a recent purchase which I believe is a Navy support badge of excellent workmanship, 22 mm. Maker marked under the needle, but unreadable to me. Enjoy!

  7. 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.
  8. 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

  12. Mostly for you, Rudi. A rather small version, 12 * 14 mm.
  13. 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 !!!
  14. 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

  16. 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.
  17. Another miniature that just came in, 15 * 26 mm.
  18. 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
  19. Joseph, indeed, with a very few exceptions I collect miniatures only! Regards, Lars
  20. Hi Alpha, unfortunately no pic of the reverse, just thought it would be of interest. Regards, Lars
  21. Well, one mysterious Sava, thinking about the star . Not mine, a picture from the net!
  22. 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?
  23. Someone should tell that museum that the Dannebrog have to be reversed
  24. Andreas, HUGE mistake, it's a Frederik VIII But check your message folder! Regards, Lars
  25. 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!
