  1. Here are my 2 cents, double Tamara ribbon on knopfloch spange...
  2. These came in today. My first foray into ww1 insignia..
  3. The third row reads "im Feldlazarett 7. 19 Armeekorps."
  4. Hi all, Here's a couple I haven't shown before. Regards. Peter
  5. Hi all. Thanks for all the comments so far. Does anyone have access to the information of those awarded the swords on the ring? Thnx. Peter
  6. Hi. I'm reading it as something as [J.Gosdt, d[em] 9.11.21, uber dem Os[..]im sollt...]. Would you be so kind as to post the entire text from the back? Maybe more letters can be deducted from the rest. Peter
  7. Hi all. I thought I'd present you with another ribbon bar from the last Zeige lot. Any thoughts? Thnx and regards. Peter
  8. Hi all. Thanks for taking the trouble and time. Lot's off new information for me. WW1 is still a new collecting area for me and I appreciate all the information. Seeing all those nice medal bars, I might be tempted to go into those myself Thanks. Peter
  9. Hi all, I thought I'd post one the ribbon bars from the last Zeige lot. This one features the Red Eagle order with the bow and swords. There are no holes so the prongs do not go through and are held in place by the ribbons. It looks like just for this reason a wide ribbon for the Eagle order was used to fixate everything in place. All ribbons blacklight negativ. Any thoughts in general and any thoughts on what that second all yellow ribbon is? All comments appreciated. Thanks. Peter
  10. Thanks, that explains the double Mecklenburg ribbons. It looks like the accompanying ribbon bar was sold by Zeige at an earlier date. Does anybody know where it is? Would be nice to reunite the 2 pieces...
  11. Hi all, I picked up some buttonhole spanges lately. Two of these came from Zeige. Please see the pictures I've got some questions concerning these: - The top one; is that a life saving medal from Wurttemberg? - Bottom left: the two Mecklenburg ribbons, what do they represent? I reckon one will be the MVK but what about the other? - Bottom right: the first ribbon, Johanniter order? Any thoughts? I'll post some of the ribbon bars of the Zeige lot at a later date... All feedback appreciated Thanks. Peter
  12. I just checked several of the source html files and it looks like all images were uploaded to the GMIC server so I reckon they should all still be on the GMIC server. I think the problem is related to faulty URL's either on the website and/or in the database. For example, if I open the first image via the website via the following URL i find nothing: http://gmic.co.uk/gallery/image/7945-device-swords-leaves-03/ If I instead use the following link from the HTML I do find the image: http://gmic.co.uk/uploads/gallery/album_344/sml_gallery_160_344_10064.jpg Please check
