The cross is made by Wagner.

Whoever posted this picture with the Duke Carl Edward medal. I'm interested in buying that from you. Please respond. Thanks.

The Carl Edward medal is not to sell, sorry. Edited by pinpon590

Hello,

nice bavarian collection, but there are some clarifications.

The third class from Hemmerle has "lost" his swords.

The first class MVK is a Deschler-cross. Deschler hasn't produced this class during the wartime.

The second class crown-swords is also a Deschler production, it is a original one.

The MVO seems to be a post-war production. Can you show me the front and the backsite in a bigger foto?

This wonderful collection has spurred me on to a new track now so I have (for the moment) left my British Raj badges and now chase something like these, though I think that PinPon has cornered the market and there will be very few nice ones left!

Hi !

Thank you for all comments ! I need now to buy some supports for all the pinback awards...

Pinpon. How long has it taken you to amass this hoard of goodies?

About 10-11 years... Around 150 german imperial WW1 items... (and around 40 austro-hungarian items...)

:cheers:

I used to own this Wuertemberg Order of the Crown and wish I still did. Questions: a) what level was it - commander? Was it most likely gold and c). do the lions look too large or were there just variations among jewelers? thanks
