    identification required

    Hi all, Does somebody know what the enclosed miniature is? The only clue I got from somebody is that it can be from an African kingdom like Swaziland, Lesotho, Zululand, Burundi or Rwanda. For the rest I am clueless. Thank you all in advance. PS. if it is not from Africa, then I would like to ask the admin to replace this topic. The general identification topic is closed, so I had to put it somewhere.

    Medal Nichan Iftikhar ou Nichan Al Iftikhar

    Dear all, I recently obtained a Nichan al Iftikhar order: The cypher appears to be the one of Mohamed Sadok, but only rotated 90 degrees counterclockwise. Did this occur more often? It is a locally made order and I am pretty sure they did not always carefully made them according to designs. And does somebody recognizes the mark on the back? Thank you in advance!

    unknown arab medal

    Ah, ok, that republic. Is it possible to date such a medal? And were they awarded with a ribbon?

    unknown arab medal

    Dear Owain, thank you very much! You wrote "I think the award continued into the Republic of Yemen." Do you mean that this piece is from before 1962? Thank you in advance!

    unknown arab medal

    Hi all, I recently got a bag filled with Arab medals. So far I identified all except one. Can somebody help me with this one? Many thanks in advance!

    Unknown masonic? star

    Now I am 100% sure that it is Masonic. I contacted the Altschottischer Obermeister (Oldscottish Headmaster) of the Grand National Motherlodge of Germany and he replied: ---start quote--- the information you got is right. The Rectified Scottish Rite which you find in Switzerland and Belgium are reated to The Allgemeine Altschottische Loge. During the centuries only parts of the RSR had survived in Germany. The Pictures show the Members Jewel of AASL. It is the 4th Degree of Große National Mutterloge „Zu den 3 Weltkugeln“. Grand National Motherlodge of the three globes. ---end quote---

    Thank you Hermann. I made a pretty good deal. The lot contained around 10 Freemason decorations and I paid less than 180 euro About the badge. A quick Google search showed this image: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gro%C3%9Fe_National-Mutterloge_%E2%80%9EZu_den_drei_Weltkugeln%E2%80%9C#/media/File:F-Hochgr-gruen.jpg It is not a clear picture, but I think it is 99% sure that it is the same badge. Apparently it is the badge for the "Schottenmeister der GNML (3WK)". The price of 180 euro is not really that trustworthy. It was also for sale for 98 euro: http://www.ma-shops.com/mueller/item.php5?id=15292&lang=en
