    Medal ID help!

    Hello Gentlemen, Can anyone ID this medal for me? Thank you, Vince Reverse
  2. Hi Dave, All I can say is that your awesome! This is my first real quasi-complete grouping and you have made it come alive. You and others here on the forum really make collecting enjoyable by sharing your knowledge and expertise with others. I cannot thank you enough for your kind assistance. I only hope that one day I can pay it forward to another collector in some way. There are only a few more docs left to post in this group so here goes! There is a whole area of military service that is missing from this grouping and I only know about it from the Sonderausweis dated 1941 which shows him as a Hauptman of Reserves back in the Army. Unfortunately, I only have this document and a couple of letters (1942) about his MIA Brother-in-law I think. Nothing else showing WW2 service. No wehrpass or soldbuchs came with this grouping. Do you know of any way to find out what he may have done during his WW2 Herr service? Thanks again, Vince These are the 2 letters.
  3. Hi Dave, Very interesting, I always wondered how they calculated the years towards receiving these decorations. Here are a few more docs I was directed to on line. I dont know if they will explain anything additional? Thanks again for all your help! Your friend, Vince
  4. WOW, Many thanks Dave. What took you minutes would have taken me months! Please tell me what you like to collect, I feel a gift is coming your way! I will not bother you for small items but may call upon your expertise again if you permit. I cannot thank you enough! Knowing what something says/means really opens my appreciation of this man and his life. It is an honor to have his documents and medals. His wife has some as well. I included a photo of the decorations that came with this grouping. Thank you again! Your friend, Vince A few more docs!
  5. Thank you Jens, Now I have to figure out what it is and what it says! My German is basic at best and reading their hand writing is always a beast. If you could just give me a synopsis of what it is and says that would be awesome. Thanks again, Vince
  6. Great thank you! I appreciate your help. I have a nice family grouping with docs from him and his wife from 1914-1942. I am sure I will have a few more questions as I research them. Thanks again to All! Vince
  7. Does anyone know what his title on this black wound document means? Is his title a Professor Doctor of Philosophy????
  8. Hi Dave, Many thanks for this most valuable information. Was WW 1 different from WW 2 reference the wound badge and numbers of wounds corresponding to color. Why did he only get the black when he was wounded 2-3 times? Thanks again for your help, Vince
  9. Greetings Gentlemen, I am trying to get some unit information from this document. Where they went, what they did, when they ended their service as this Gentleman was captured by the French and held until 1920! Any assistance would be greatly appreciated, Vince
  10. Greetings Gentlemen, I am trying to research this Gentleman and his military unit history during WW1 and do not know where to start. If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Vince
  11. Many thanks for the info John! Vince
  12. Greetings All, As a brand new collector of militaria well over 40 years ago my first uniform was a German Army Afrika Korps tunic. So since then the AK has held a special place in my collector's heart. This is my latest acquisition and my first AK medal bar ever! I hope you enjoy seeing it. I do not know if there is an AK thread but if there is please let me know as I would love to see other AK medal bars. Happy Hunting, Vince
  13. A wonderful grouping I recently acquired. It is a family grouping with many documents to both husband and wife from the WW1 period thru WW2. Enjoy, Vince
