  1. Here is a close up picture of the Sonderstufe worn by Prince Leopold IV.... ...and another picture, dated March 1913 and without swords.
  2. I´m happy, that you like it like I do... From the same source also this little ribbonbar with three ribbons came earlier. For me it´s also belonging to Prince Leopold 4th of Lippe-Detmold, although the positioning of the Cenentary medal differs from the corresponding medalbar...no clue why ?! It shows - house order 3rd class Lippe-Detmold (Hausorden 3.Klasse) - Cenentary medal Prussia (Centenarmedaille) - throne medal 1897 Lippe-Detmold (Einzugsmedaille 1897) Any thoughts on this? Regards Roman P.S. The picture of the young Prince I found in the internet and it´s not my own property.
  3. Hi guys, I just want to show you on of my latest entries... This ribbon bar (old style) was formerly owned by Prince Leopold 4th of Lippe-Detmold !!! Between 1905 and 1914 he was wearing exactly this combination, proofed by various photos. The bar consists of the following eight ribbons: - house order 3rd class Lippe-Detmold (Hausorden 3.Klasse Lippe-Detmold) - Leopold-order owner-cross Lippe-Detmold (Inhaberkreuz Leopoldorden) - house order golden merit cross (Goldenes Verdienstkreuz Lippe-Detmold) - throne medal 1897 Lippe-Detmold (Einzugsmedaille 1897 Lippe-Detmold) - law suit medal 1905 Lippe-Detmold (Thronanspruchsmedaille 1905 Lippe-Detmold) - golden merit medal Lippe-Detmold (Goldene Verdienstmedaille Lippe-Detmold) - war veterans club cross Lippe-Detmold (Kriegervereinskreuz Lippe-Detmold) - centenary medal Prussia (Centenarmedaille) So 7 out of 8 ribbons are from his own principal :-P I also attached the proofing photo and the colored (Photoshop) photo of the big ribbon bar. I hope you like it, as I do.... Roman
  4. Kriegervereinskreuz Lippe-Detmold


    • FOR SALE

    I offer Original Kriegervereinskreuz Lippe-Detmold (warriors-club cross, not sure about the proper translation) Ultra rare piece, 226 awards The cross (unworn, mint-condition) comes without ribbon, but with original paper bag. Price: 340 EUR plus shipping


  5. Hi Alan, I have no problem with the Kriegsehrenkreuz für heldenmütige Tat Lippe-Detmold. It´s a typical Zimmermann-piece, as it should look like. Regards Roman
  6. Hmmm, strange guy...I can only find his SLH3, but in the Detmold rolls he is not listed at all... Kuhlgatz wears on the picture clearly Schaumburg-Lippe house-order 2nd class and Lippe-Detmold house-order 4th class. Regards Roman
  7. The mark "SILBER" you usually find on Zimmermann-pieces from 1918 or later...the case is also a typical one used by Zimmermann. So far, I haven´t seen a 2nd piece like that...I only know the very early Büsch-ones (I showed in this topic earlier) and the 2nd Büsch-model with a changed stamp.
  8. It´s time to contribute something, which I got recently.... Life-saving medal Lippe-Detmold, later version from 1918 which was made by C.F.Zimmermann in Pforzheim (marked with SILBER at its ring)...but with the original case (Zimmermann delievered around 10 medals to prince....number of awards of this medal ....unknown!). The ribbon is the original one (darker than the earlier model).
  9. And here is another one...also in a Godet-case, very similar to Red´s one :-) And to complete story, I will show you also the official Silver gilden cross with oakleaves, made by Godet!
  10. Hi gents, I have bought this photo quite long ago, but I simply hadn´t any name. Now in another forum it was maybe identified. The officer on this photo is wearing at his medalbar (partly identified due to the person): - Iron cross 1870 2nd class - order of the red eagle 4th class with swords - order of the crown 3rd class with swords - Dueppeler cross 1864 - Alsen cross 1864 - war merit cross 1866 (Mainarmee) - war merit medal 1864 - war merit medal 1870 / 71 - Lippe Detmold house order 3rd class with swords - Schaumburg- Lippe military merit medal with sabres on the ribbon He was 99 % identified as captain Friedrich von / van Beughem Infanterie-Regiment No. 55 He awarded the red eagle order 1866 and the order of the crown 1864 as Sekonde-Lieutnant (!!!) and the Lippe-Detmold house-order in 1871 as Priemierleutnant. The Schaumburg-medal was also awarded in the war 1870/71. Best regards Roman
  11. Ok, this might be an explanation, why Dr. Schuster went for a photo to Cologne :-)
  12. Hi, this nice picture took quite some time to ID. Here are the facts: Officer in the uniform of "Lippische Fuessiliere", which were integrated in 1867 in the Prussian army (IR No.55). The age might be around 45 and older. The photo was taken in Cologne. He is wearing: Prussian Order of the crown 4th class with swords (at the blue ribbon for Non-Prussians!) Lippe housorder 3rd class (the 4th class didn´t exist yet) Prussian war medal 1866 (non-combatant ribbon ? ) Lippe-Detmold war medal 1866 These facts usually would be sufficient for an easy identifaction.....would... Unfortunately no Lippe-officer awarded the KO4X and the DETMOLD house order 3rd class, but a look into Schaumburg rolls shows the desaster. This officer can only be Obermilitaerarzt Dr. Dietrich Schuster, Lippischer Füsilier until 1867, when he retired from the military service. He got in 1869 surprisingly from Schaumburg the house order 3rd class, although he was born and lived in Lippe-Detmold! Why he is wearing the triangle ribbons, I don´t know. It´s also strange, that he didn´t get the Prussian war medal for 1848/1849... Best regards Roman
