  1. Here is one, I bought and sold recently... The IC 1st class was sold before I got it and there were also a WW2 war merit cross with swords 2nd and 1st class, most likely belonging to this group. Unfortunately there was no name coming with this group.
  2. Uppps, you should have told me before...these pieces came originally from me :-) I got a few from an old jewelry inventory....all were unawarded and never unpacked before in mint condition.
  3. Hmmm...I don´t like this pinback-cross...it doesn´t look like proven original ones.
  4. Just recognized, that I forgot to provide the evidence :-) Here is Eichhorst´s role-entry....
  5. Hi, this nice little group I got recently from his granddaughter... Werner Eichhorst got on 23rd June 1917 his Golden Merit Medal Leopold-order Lippe-Detmold, as No. 41 of the list (out of only 84 awards in total). He was working as a decorator and acc. to the information, I got from his granddaughter, he was producing cussions etc. Following this information it is quite likely, that he supplied a new bed for the ruling Prince Leopold IV. zu Lippe-Detmold. Surprisingly he skipped the Bronze and Silver medal and directly got the Golden one. The Golden merit medal was his only award, during his military service 1883-1886 he received nothing. The group consists of the medal, a passport, his Militärpass and the Auszug aus der Kriegsstammrolle. Unfortunately the award document or case for the medal didn´t survive... I hope you like it.... Regards Roman
  6. Maybe the 2nd orange ribbon is related to The Netherlands, e.g. house-order Oranje merit medal? Then the arrangement of the ribbons would make sense: All Prussian orders first, then the two Lippe-awards and on the last position the foreign Oranje-order.
  7. I found him on facebook, thanks for the hint...I will try over there. His name is Denis Darmanin. Best regards Roman
  8. I saw it on Ebay...but the result was ridiculous high...regarding the Lippe-awards everythig was correct on the photo. By the way, the name of Siegfried Mummenthey was also marked on the back of the photo. On his receipt for the cross for heroic deeds, he noted a SA3b on 8th December 1915. Regards Roman
  9. No,no...I got the buttons by accident...but they are a nice addon to my Lippe-collection. Before getting these buttons, I even had no idea about their variety...Lippe-detmold used to be one of the smallest principalities of Imperial Germany. Regards Roman
  10. Here is a Lippe-bar...the left medal is the 1866 war memory medal Lippe-Detmold And again a Lippe-bar...with the silver merit cross of the house order (awarded for 1870/71): And.....a Prussian bar with the silver merit medal Lippe-Detmold. The bar belongs to gendarme Hufen from Rietberg (near Guetersloh):
  11. Hi gents, I recently got a number of buttons for lackey uniforms...all related to the principality Lippe-Detmold. Some buttons I was able to identify, for some I´m still looking for information. First of all I will show the unknown ones, of course all related to Lippe-Detmold showing its Imperial heraldic signs in different variations: This one shows the heraldic sign of Lippe-Detmold unitl 1687 (although the backside is much younger) !!!! This one belongs to Prince (Friedrich) Leopold III, ruling 1851-1875: This one belongs to Prince Woldemar (1875-1895) This one belongs to Grafregent Ernst (1897-1904): And finally these ones belong to Prince Leopold IV (1905-1918): I hope you like these small fellows Any comment is welcome... Regards Roman
  12. Bin ich der Einzige, der hier als Ostwestfale neben Englisch auch Hochdeutsch schreiben kann?
  13. I recently got this rare photo of Prince Leopold IV of Lippe-Detmold, surprisingly wearing not "his" house-order, but the Waldeck house-order (with crown) at his neck On the photo he is wearing the uniform of the 6th Westf. Infanterie-Regiment No. 55 (Bülow von Dennewitz), the Lippe-Detmold regiment. The photo was taken in 1909, according to the notice on its backside. Regards Roman
