  1. Nice pieces. A course badge, membership, another course/specialty badge, never seen this one before. But it doesn't really have the IKL/Sinimustat feel to it.
  2. My unmarked medal. Missing its reverse text. I can't explain why. One can notice a faint shadow where it should be. Also a very rare commemorative booklet from 1930 with the medal imprinted. Written by the corps founder Christer Uggla.
  3. These two arrived today. Anyone seen the un-enameled before?
  4. I have this Iron Crown. The ring is clearly marked with A for Wien and what with a little imagination would be a goat and 3 for 18ct. FR for Rothe. The mark on the cross is blurred like hell. Could it be something else considering the ring is made of gold? 33gr, 75mm. Guess it's a first class?
  5. Does it have an engraving on the rim? I bought one and to my surprise it was engraved to a Swedish speaking captain. I guess that it's a private commission? I've heard they were intolerant to the Swedish speaking population but I think that's an after construction. I also bought a small print, a recruitment pamphlet in Swedish, from the same seller.
  6. My pleasure, Christophe. Thanks for the info Chip. No piping on the bottom right, so a simplied pair it seems. Do you have any further info on the dunkelblau straps? I'm curious about the blue cord. Not sure that I've seen this before. Otherwise much obliged.
  7. Thanks for the replies. Been collecting FR34 for a couple of years and try to acquire it if something shows up. (I'm eternally grateful if you see something and fire away a tip to me). A couple of old pictures of the collection. The tunic and cap is named to a Oberleutnant in the regiment. Found the nice goblet here in Sweden. Turns out it's for a "volunteering" swedish Fähnrich. I'll gladly post a couple of my documents concerning FR34 that I myself is only able to make out fragments of. Any help on the different schulterklappe models?
  8. Been collecting straps and other items from Füsilier-Regiment Königin Viktoria von Schweden(Pommersches) Nr.34 for some time now and finally acquired a Einjährige! Thought I'd get some help in identifying the different models. What does the blue stripe represent, Einjährige, same as the polka piping, unteroffizer or something else? Are the feldgrau only M1915 or any other designation? Believe the short ones are mantel klappen? Any model number on the "dunkelblau" straps? Some of them has remnants of the number 34 still visible and reused in 1905 when they got Viktoria's chiffer. Thanks for viewing.
  9. Ah, thanks for pointing that out. At a second look at the postcard, it's written v. Bülow on the margin. Though he has a striking resemblance to Krähe. Best regards Christian
  10. Very nice pictures, Karsten. I remember bangning my head after missing the post-war photo of Krähe on Sascha's update a couple of years back. Please get in touch if you ever deciding to pass it on. I believe the picture of the young Krähe was on the Berliner Auctionhouse. Missed out on this as well. But they're in a good collection. Here is a picture of him as a Major in 1913 on a state visit by the king of Italy. Best regards Christian
  11. I'm not able to get any better pictures with my crap-cellphone, but through the loup it looks like 75 and EQ. That's Hemmerle, right? Not sure if I remeber right but i think I've heard that Ludwig II did not only instituted the order but also designed it. Is this true? Best regards Christian
  12. Hi Andreas, Thanks. I'll be sure to get a picture a soon as possible. Do you know of any auction-listings of a 2. klasse Ritter? All I could find was the one sold on the Thies auction last December. Best regards Christian
  13. Yes, but I'm at work for a couple of days. This is the best I could do at the moment. I'll update with better pictures at the beginning of next week.
