HI Stijn

That would be great. I have a longer weekend than usual, so I would have some more time for the L?beck transcriptions.

Comes a KorvKpt z.D. Hellmuth v. M?ller-Berneck up in the L?beck roll that far? That's the name Daniel found for it [one of my ribbon bars from another thread]... ;)

Not sure if this is the right place, but it's L?beck and i think somehow related?

I've had this tinnie for a while and wonder what exactly it is? My best guess is it was for calling people to join the army in 1914?

regards,

Gaston

normally the date on tinnies is the date of a certain event?

Where did you get it? As far as I know these are considered fake. They pop up on eBay periodically sold by known crooks.

I bought it on ebay. Usually when fakes are made, they are more abundant or prolific to warrant the die being manufactured. Interesting.  I see that with coins. Time after time, you see the same fake and thus are able to draw that conclusion.

I have strong doubts that this is genuine. The fact you bought it on eBay reinforces this opinion. The infamous "Club" and its various alter-egos dole these out sparingly on eBay, in order the avoid raising alarms. There's also a seller called Porre81 who sells these and most of his items are fake.

Except for eBay, I have never seen this cross before, anywhere and I've been collecting Imperial for over 50 years. It could well be a fantasy piece.

Agreed. Same "award" was already discussed on WAF. This neither Hanseatic War Merit Cross, nor a Kriegerverein member corss.
