Hi Chris,

you can find many pieces with this name, mostly caps.

He is "Kappenmacher Carl Schweisfurth"

The first additon for 2016 and for a long time... a rather unusual Isle of Man PoW medal in its case (or at least the bottom half of it) in exceptionally good condition.

The latest for the collection and all to get another bar: Villiers

Most likely to a Wurttemberger as they fought against the French in the largest sortie/battle from beseiged Paris.  It took place from 29 November to 3 December and was a German Victory.  Although not in the best of shape, this parade mounted pair was once proudly worn by the recipient well over 110 years ago.

I had one of these, but not with a tailor's lable and so couldn't pass it up.  A nice WWI trio made by C. G Ulrich of Hamburg.

A nice trio with a Hamburg Hanseatic cross - court mounted and with tailor's tag is the latest acquisition.

I am a huge fan of the Franco-Prussian groups.  Thanks for sharing this tidy bar.  

Hamburg Hanseatic bars are not common either.  What a beauty.
