  1. I have the following engraved on a badge.... Schmalschläger s.l Hörmann z. Erg. an den verhängnisvollen Flug 16 x 16 My poor translation indicates it is to remember some sort of fateful flight. What is the s.l and z. Erg stand for? I have found 2 Schmalschläger and 2 Hörmann but can not link the 2 (if in fact I have the correct people) Thanks in advance. Gary B

  3. That is some wonderful photography and a great grouping! Gary B
  4. A very nice bar, Claudio and one that I thought of bidding on! Congrats on an excellent addition! Gary B
  5. This is the 1st model which is also known as the "scalloped edges" model. They sell for a premium to the later versions. Gary B
  6. Indeed it should look familiar : ) Good memory. Nice Danzig pieces! Gary B
  7. Thanks for the nice comment, Camelneck. It has been awhile since i posted on this thread or the GMIC. I should post some more bars to keep the thread going. Gary B
  8. Brad, Congratulations on another stunning uniform for your very focused collection! Gary B
  9. Wow, Brad! I did not realize you had so many Heer Pioneer uniforms/visors! Gary B
  10. MH, Very nice uniforms! One minor correction....officers were not authorized to wear marksmanship lanyards. Gary B
  11. HI Stormrider, Nice bars. Your Hindenburg Cross with the clips on the reverse is for mounting it to a larger multi place medal bar. Single parade mounts were made with these backing clips so they could be attached to a larger metal plate with corresponding slits and a pin back. The individually mounted medals were then mounted to this larger metal plate to create a large medal bar. I do not have a picture of one but it is similar to the ribbon bars of the same construction type. Gary B
  12. Nice sets. Good luck on finding a reserve pair of tabs, I have only seen one set (on the internet) in all the years I have been collecting them. Gary B
