Only Nr. 1 is a quite good Leser which was awarded in wartime.

I agree with that. I do not like the other pieces.

Both MVKs are pieces from the awarding period. The first is from Deschler, 
the second is from Lauer. At the second, the back would be interesting.
 

Best regards Walter

Lauer delivers the Ordenskanzlei till 1916.
So you won`t see red boxes for the Lauer-crosses.
This type was the first from beginning. The second type has smaller swords.
Type 1 up
Type 2 down

Servus Andreas,

Ordenskanzlei verstehe ich nicht. Die gab es doch erst nach 1918. Es müsste wohl Kgl. Bayerisches Kriegsministerium heißen, oder irre ich mich da?

Hi all,

this is my first post here, so please be patient with me.

Recently on German Ebay many MVK1st class have popped up, all of which look repaired or restored. I would like to know your opinion on these pieces which sold for fairly low prices except for the one with crown. On of them was even sold twice, but the old auction from November can not be accessed anymore. 

I myself am very interested in the MVKs so I would like to post more questions and observations in the future. 

Hopefully this post is not too large. A single screenshot from an ipad amounts already to a 7mb file.

Thanks and regards,

Martin

All of them looked manipulated! Most of them will be a (self-)gilded 3rd. Class.

Thats what I thought! The gold looks so good and new that I can not imagine a 100 year old decoration would look like that. The one with the crown is the only one with a realistic touch to it.

So they fake the center medallion? I did not expect that. Good to know, thank you!

 

Imagine paying 100 to 150€ for such a fake!

Hello Martin;

I am glad you can join us on this forum. 

In my opinion, if you are interested in buying MVKs, I would recommend a well-established dealer.  Their websites make it clear that they guarantee the authenticity, and will buying back something if it is shown to be a fake.  

I look forward to your future posts.

Cladius, Chris, thank you for your warm welcome!

Spolei has helped me via PM to understand why these are indeed fakes, thanks a lot!

The funny thing is that currently there are more 1st class on Ebay than 2nd class. And we all know that this does not reflect the actual award numbers.

So, as promised what little I have so far:

Original post-war bar of Xaver Hauser.

Swords are Deschler.

Cant upload more because the system tries to merge the post and I exceed the upload limit. Which was no problom when I uploaded the 7mb plus photos above... Its not much you are missing, just two late war boxes from Weiss with MVK3rd class.

Hello Martin
At the higher levels, you should be extra careful. MVK 1 with crown and swords is very often forged. 
An original of Leser you can see in my post above. Exactly so an original must look by Leser. Other
versions of Leser are not original. 

Regards Walter

Hi Walter,

vielen Dank! 

Mein MVK1b sieht so aus. Spolei hatte mich darauf hingewiesen. Daher denke ich dass es original ist.

Schöne Grüße,

Martin

Thank you Chris!
