  1. This Ottoman Empire Silver Buyuk Imtiyaz Medal (Grand Medal of Distinction) was named to Mirliva (Major General) Von Rüdgisch Pasha on 1899.
  2. Claudio, it says exactly "Graf Ferdinand".Of course that doesn't mean its %100 Graf Zeppelin.If there other Graf Ferdinands exist, it could be one of them as well.The inscription its not new. Unfortunately the Medal was cleaned once, so there is no patina left.Also I took the picture under the light to show better details of that engraving,so it is a little shiny.Also, lets say you are engraving a medal and trying to look like honoring Graf Zeppelin, why not directly engraving the name "Zeppelin" ?? If thats the whole point ,don't you think that would of make everything easier?? Regards
  3. Yes Andreas you got it right.
  4. Dear Collectors, I would like to get some information regarding of an Ottoman Empire Iftihar ve Sanayi Medal (Pride, Gratification, Fine Arts and Industry Medal) which has an inscription on the reverse named to "Graf Ferdinand" I would appreciate all those Collectors,who can help me to find more information regarding that Graf Ferdinand (von Zeppelin) honored with this medal.Like pictures,paper work.. Thank you very much. Muhittin

  6. Hello Stuart, This is not a medal,it's a silver coin AH1327 regnal year 6 10 Kurush Egypt /Ottoman Empire. Best wishes, Muhittin
  7. Neither makes it bad!! What is the criteria of quality Don?? Why is all of them different then the official made Turkish War Medal?? Regards
  8. I think the company made handful of this Medals,but probably didn't meet the quality standards and they just discontinue making them. I did find another piece sold on German eBay in the past,but unfortunately the seller did not post the reverse picture of the medal on his listing. He described the medal as; Imperial German World War I 1st Class Turkish Gallipoli Badge The dimensions are 2 1 /4 inches wide by 2 1/4 inches tall Has a maker mark on re verse marked "Preissler Pforzheim" Has a thin horizontal pin back This is a five pointed star with red painted high-lights Nickel construction Very good plus condition
  9. A German badge made by the same company with the same letters, actually exact same pinback.. So this must be a fake badge as well..
  10. Yes, in general if you are planning to make fakes and make money out of it,you will find your way to do it,but my point is specifically this piece.The only piece ever seen by this maker.
  11. I do see your point Chris,but why would you take your time and just make one fake piece like that? Does it really worth that effort,time and the money?? My point is,we have members here collecting for 30-40 years and not even one person have seen any other piece made by the same maker. Let's say someone wants to make money by making Gallipoli Stars,why this quality?? How could you make money with this quality star?? Why not Godet? Or Meybauer ? I am sure that person would make a fortune if he would go with one of this makers.. regards, Muhittin
