  1. HI! Todays new member of my collection, never seen before: The cross for grand officers of the order of merit of the brazilian carthografical society in its original case, both made by Randal in rio de janeiro. The bar and the rosette is missing, but nevertheless a really nice award, not often given. Does anyone of you have some more information or other pieces to show? regards westfale P.S.: Due to a broken camera the pictures were made by my mobile with reduced quality, sorry... If there is interest in better pictures, I will make some after repair!
  2. certificate with box

    Hi NIck! Thanks for your fast translation!! It was a really great help for me!! Sad that they are not from the same soldier, but nevertheless, I never have seen these in real before, so I decided to buy... Rear of the box I found this, I think the manufacturer... and rear of the certificate there is this sign - from the unit who gave the document to the soldier? regards from germany westfale

  4. Hi! After purchasing this interesting cross of the Order of Malta there is one question left for me: why this cross did not have the "normal" rearside inscrption "A.D. MCMXXIII"? I have seen some other pieces like this looking at some sellers, but why this cross is different or who made it and at which time i don't know, Does anyone have more information about this and could give me some details? Thanks for your help! westfale

  12. Gentleman, not really special, but for me my first 15years DA so made - not typical, but mounted as a single bar; does anyone have similar pieces especially of the other ones (iron/gold)? regards westfale
  13. Gentleman, today I've recieved this beautiful medal - I think given to remember the capture of the fortress of lille. I don't know much more than the info given by the medal itself, but I hope one of you would have some more info about it, e.g. how many were made or for what special reason except the capture itself or anything else... regards westfale
