  1. Dear mod, Recently I tried to place an add in the sales section, but I got an error. I already contacted GMIC via the contact us function, however nobody replied. That is why I am posting a question here. The error code I got: Sorry, there is a problem You cannot create adverts in this category: missing PACKAGE INFO, TYPE or ITEM CONDITION. Contact the system administrator. Error code: CL-SUBMIT/2 Can you tell me what I did wrong? Many thanks in advance.
  2. Dear all, Last week I had to do a quick buy. I was offered this St. George cross 3rd class for non-Christians. The guy who sold it had "no idea" what is was. The only thing he could tell me is that he "dug this piece of metal up in Poland", after finding it with his metal detector. This was the only medal he was selling, all the other stuff were other findings he dug up. The price was really nice, so I had to act fast. I have no idea about Russian Imperial medals, so I want to ask you all what do you think of this cross? Is it a valid one? And if so, is there a possibility to research the number (2065)? How many are there in total awarded? I would like to thank you in advance for your time and effort and I am looking forward to an experts opinion!

  9. 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!
  10. unknown arab medal

    thank you Owain!
  11. unknown arab medal

    Ah, ok, that republic. Is it possible to date such a medal? And were they awarded with a ribbon?
  12. 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!
  13. Unknown masonic? star

    Hi all, Recently I bought a lot with different masonic medals from the Netherlands, Turkey, and England. In this lot, there is also one star I cannot identify. Does somebody here recognize it? Thank you very much in advance!

    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

    Ok, thank you. So it is not masonic. The question remains: what is it?
  17. Hello all, I have this neck badge, but I have only minor information about it. It is some sort of badge of the Turkish Yükseliş lodge (lodge # 12), which is established in the Ankara region on the 24th of June 1950. It had approximately 120 members. I believe the lodge does not exist anymore, since all information I have found dates before 2004. The last grand master of the lodge (Ufuk BULUT) had this position in the years 2003-2004. All information I have is from this website: http://masonlocasi.blogspot.com/2015/04/yukselis-muhterem-locas.html, which I translated with Google Translate. Can somebody tell me more about this badge? When was it introduced, who worn it, how many are there produced, did it have a particular function, etc? and the backside: Thanking you in advance for the information!
  18. Is this the fourth class?
  19. Hello Nick, Thank you. Interesting to know that there are only 821 crosses awarded. Why in heaven's sake would a forger put such a high number on the cross... But one thing is sure, those forgers are good in letting something "feel" like old.
  20. Unknown masonic? star

    So far I have only found this bit of information (no clue if it is correct): http://www.ebay.de/itm/original-Orden-Freimaurer-vor-1900-Stern-gold-N-F-/311012605039 The advertisement implies that it is a German Freemason decoration from before 1900. More information is really appreciated!
  21. Hello all, I've tried to identify this kammerherrenschlüssel, but without any success (I have no knowledge in this area). The box is not the original box, but just one to store it in. Can somebody with more knowledge about this area identify it? Many thanks in advance!
  22. Hi guys, You have a good point. I never thought of a Dutch key. Like I said, I have no knowledge about these keys, and I know that they are used a lot in Germany, so I assumed this one should also be German. A quick search on "kamerherensleutel" (the Dutch word for it) showed me this: http://www.ambtskostuums.nl/ambtskostuums/koninklijkhuis/sleutel.htm Thank you both for your help!!!
  23. Nobody that has knowledge about this topic?
  24. Hello all, I recently came across this german dagger. I've seen a lot of different daggers, but this one is new to me (my interest is not into daggers). Can somebody tell me more about this model and originality? All your help is very much appreciated!
  25. Thank you guys! Luckely I didn't buy it. Somebody wanted to sell it to me, but since I'm not collecting daggers or German stuff, I rejected the offer. But I became curious about its origin. And that problem is now solved. Again, Thank you both!!
