  3. Hello, I have a portrait of Austrian major in uniform of lancers regiment "Archduke Carl" No. 3. Apparently he participated in suppression of hungarian uprising 1849 for which he received Leopold Order i Knight’s Cross, Russian order of St.Vladimir 4th class with swords. He also has a medal, ribbon looks like Prussan "life saving". May be someone can help me identify it.

  7. Hi all, Can someone identify this order. Order made by Godet & Sohn, Berlin.
  8. Thank you Paul, I stopped collecting German medals long time ago, but ones collector, always collector. Just couldn't pass by a good deal.
  9. Thank you for the information. Best regards, GlennC
  10. Thank you for your reply. I have been told it was Franco-Prussian war period piece. But if it's earlier decoration it is even better. Do you have information on how many Knight orders were issued during that period.
  11. One of the early awards, probably 1870-1871. Order shows some heavy wear on the bottom portion of the front medallion. It looks like recipient awarded with this order proudly wear it for a long time. Does anybody have any information on number of SHO awarded during Franco-Prussian war.
