    that is the one I compared my second class, too.
  5. I like to disagree. In 1957 the reborn Germany passed a law allowing the wear of formerly awarded decorations again. Several companies started making the new decorations again. Most are bronze gilt. You may be able to find catalogs from that time showing accurate pictures of those awards. Of course the Pour le Merite and all higher bravery decorations were part of this, just like the St. Henry.

    The Agricultural Merit Order 1913

    Dear Paul, I have been trying to remember this book title and just drew a blank. It took me years to finally get into the Hillwood museum to have those extremely nice folks there removing the 1st class badge from its public display and to compare them side by side. Thanks so much for adding this in order to complete the first online record for the collecting community. Andreas

    The Agricultural Merit Order 1913

    Could you post the pages here?
  8. Looks like less then 30 total awarded, but all in form of the first type. It was now confirmed that only one was awarded in 1912. More here: http://www.omsa.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=502
  9. Here the story on the Albert Order with swords on ring. Any decoration with swords on ring is super rare! http://www.medalnet.net/Albert_swords_on_ring.htm
  10. www.medalnet.net has the correct pieces listed. Whatever does not fit the list is out.
  11. Does the medal have the typical marking on it's rim?
  12. Karsten, will post soon. It's an officers bar and yes one of the necessary bar is missing for a full Feldartillerie (reitende) history :whistle:
  13. Gentlemen, I was asked for help, but was not quite up to the task. I was given a name and several photographs with the question what Adolf Koslowsky is wearing on his two medal bars shown below: His beginning: initial medal bar: later being a "Leutnant" rank in his career: And his last medal bar shown on his field gray WWI picture: ...and the full picture: any help will be appreciated! What medals was he awarded with? My best guess is: a) Militaerehrenzeichen 2.Klasse (OK this one I was told: Wachtmeister at the Th?ringschen Ulanen-Regiment Nr. 6 and recived for his participation in the Deutsch-S?dwest the Milit?r-Ehrenzeichen 2. Klasse in 1906) b) Long Service ? c) Saxe-Coburg-Gotha Military Merit Medal with sword bar, but what year? Or maybe even the Africa bar!? d) South West Commemorative Medal with 4 bars, but which ones?
  14. Not inclined to use strong words, I will just say: "hXXXX XXXXt" Congrats!!!
