Not as nice as some of the others shown above, but I have all of his documents, Mecklenburg-Schwerin MVK1 and the full medal bar to consolate me.

While not nearly as nice as Andreas' miniatures, I'm waiting on the postman to deliver this little beauty! :jumping::jumping:

Hi Mike, nice mini-bar! very nice indeed. These miniature medal bars are not easy to find.

Hi, Stogie

Thanks! I've only got a few things but what really made me want this mini-bar was that I own each of the full-sized medals too! Unfortunately, they're not on a single bar together like the mini-bar. I have a two-place bar with the EK2 and Honor Cross w/swords and I own a MVK w/crown & swords. :beer:

1870 Non Combattant EK2, 2 piece hollow silver and enameled. Both sides are the same. Weitze just recently listed one of these. The price surprised me.

But this makes up for it. Front detail is not what you would expect from this maker, but then again this is only about a 9mm cross.

Here is a silver 1870 mini. The bottom ribbon has been folded over to make it fit.

Gentlemen,

In view of the current excitement over these 1914 spanges in another thread, I thought that the little guys should have something to say. Let's hear it for the little guys!

That's the ?ltere Linie, Reuss silver medal f?r Treue und Verdienst 1867-1918! That's a first!

Gentlemen,

Stogieman's above observation is worth special note in that it indirectly points up one of the important, but seldom recognized, aspects of collecting minis. They give us an opportunity to have a connection to the rare and obscure. I hope to do a thread regarding this sometime in the future. Meanwhile, I would like to present an example of another aspect - incredible workmanship.

Regards,

Wild Card

WoW ...thanks Rick, I've been trying to track this one down since I bought it. I didn't look that close when I first saw it for sale, just knew it was a Reuss award.

This is one of the first pieces of German militaria I bought.

Here are my favorites! I have added one since this pic but it is a duplicate. The one has a mini WB soldered to the end of it. If you have any for sale or trade please contact me.

Hi CRBeery,

You are so right. I have seen a lot of minis over the years; but your mounted WB is a first for me. These mounted mini groups are so rare and beautiful.

The WB?s do show up on the chains from time to time (see attached); but when it comes to mini WB?s, in my opinion, you have the pick of the litter.

Congratulations!

Bob - Saxon is 4-3/4" X 1-1/4". Prussian is 2-1/4" X 1-1/4". They seem to have been made on ribbon bar bars. I love the little St. Henry on the Saxon piece.

Wild Card - nice little chain. The observer is a real nice touch. I think this is the same type WB as yours just in a different mounting style. Mine is just a stamped piece of metal and not solid backed.

Thanks,

Chet

Hi Chet,

As you can see, my WB has a solid reverse.
