  1. Maybe these as well: Heisinger Jorck, Harald von Rabe von Pappenheim, Herbold Rheinbaben, Werner von Saalwächter, Alfred Schulz, Edmund Selchow, Heinrich-Bogislaw von Tippelskirch, Ulrich von Türcke, Wilhelm von Waldegg, von Weizsäcker, Ernst Freiherr von
  2. Is that PLM the same one currently on eBay? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Imperial-German-World-War-I-Pour-Le-Merite-Blue-Max-Neck-Order-with-Oak-Leaf/202226917717?hash=item2f15a9e155:g:kOQAAOSw5NxagfHC
  3. Maybe that first award should be a Princely Hohenzollern RitterKreuz w/X? I think that Adler is a fake, but what do I know.....
  4. I'd start with a nice old Steinhauer and Luck piece. Ernst Junger's PLM at his museum is a S & L piece and you can clearly see it in some photos of him wearing his PLM.
  5. Could you help me with the handwriting?  I can read the Fraktur, but the other is mystifying.  Its this post:

    Thank you from Montana.

     

  6. Thanks. Schmied was what I was suspecting as that is listed as his occupation on the US Census.
  7. Can I get some help with the Handwriting? My wife's Great Grandfather in Austrian Infantry Regiment Nr. 11 "Georg Prinx von sachsen". Now I could use some help from a native German speaker that can help me with the handwriting. What I know is: Ort: Stehlowitz, BezirK: Muhlhausen, Kreis oder Komitat: Budweis, Land: Bohmen. Geburtsjahr: 1834, Religion: katolisch, Stand: Ledig, Profession: ? That all matches other family docs I have. I sure could use some with the rest of it. next stop is to figure out if he was in the Italian campaign of 1859 and the battle of Solferino,.

    As a follow up to this. I found him! After going page by page through more than 6000 files, I found him. He was in the 11th Austrian Infantry Regiment "Georg Prinz von Sachsen". Now I could use some help from a native German speaker that can help me with the handwriting. What I know is: Ort: Stehlowitz, BezirK: Muhlhausen, Kreis oder Komitat: Budweis, Land: Bohmen. Geburtsjahr: 1834, Religion: katolisch, Stand: Ledig, Profession: ? That all matches other family docs I have. I sure could use some with the rest of it. next stop is to figure out if he was in the Italian campaign of 1859 and the battle of Solferino,. This Entlass schein which was the secret to finding where to look in Bohemia is still in the family's possession aftetr 100+ years. It confirms the birth year and place of residence Stehlovic and Muhlhausen. The family name has changed to PINTZ now. But the church records show PINC.
  9. There's one on ebay.de: http://www.ebay.de/itm/Pour-le-Merite-mit-Band-im-Etui-goldenes-Eichenlaub-727-/172813398728?hash=item283c7b32c8:g:dB4AAOSw3ntZirfM My new PLM box is like you show with thew same color of blue backing. either way a copy. My 2 cents. Or here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/142008029790?rmvSB=true

    I think there is a chart on here somewhere that allows you to cross reference Bars to Regiments.

    Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, I don't think its him. The dates in the other entries don't line up at all. By the time of the dates in this document he is already in America. I think I have the incorrect regiment, or its not complete. It must be either 11 of possibly 35. Here the doc I found for PINTZ. There was another PINC but again the wrong DOB year. Dan
  12. Can someone point me in the right direction? My wife's great grandfather Frantisek PINC was born in Stehlovic, Bezirk Mulhausen, in the Kingdom of Bohemia in 1834. I heard once he was in the Austrian Army in Italy, so I'm guessing it might have been the Second Italian War of Independence, also called the Franco-Austrian War, Austro-Sardinian War or Italian War of 185, depending what you call it? I figure he would have been enlisted in 1854 and served until 1864. He didn't get married until 1867 and that matches up to hi having been in military service. I've dug through the records of Infanterie-Regiments Georg Prinz von Sachsen Nr.11 which should have been the infantry regiment that recruited in his area during this period. But alas nothing. I did find a Frantisek PINC, but the wrong town and birth year. Anyone have any ideas? I know the name spelling is correct and his birth place and date because we have those original family documents (Entlass Schein). I'd appreciate you're help. I can read the German so that helps, but its like looking for a needle in a hay stack.
  13. Here's one of Ernst Junger and His Bother Friedrich.
  14. It is a listing of recipients, basic exploits, lots of Russians from the early 1800's. For the price its fine, not perfect. I used to have all three volumes of the book but sold them. For $30.00 is a good source. Their is a follow up volume from 1890's on. Volume 1 is not necessary and hard to find.
