While watching the Lippe-Detmold war merit cross 1st class thread I remind on my Mecklenburg-Strelitz cross 1st class.

There are many mistakes about this cross and number of awards. But it is not my intention to start a discussion about this.

I love this breast crosses and I would like to see yours.

Regards

Alex

Hi Alex,

you know mine:-)

This cross is also made by Zimmermann.

The same needle.

The original maker was Godet, all other maker produced second pieces or produced after 1918.

Hi Guys,

Would I be correct in saying that this piece would be a post war Zimmermann?

Hi,

the pin seems to be a little different? (Zimmermann's needle is flat). Could you post a straight picture of the back?

Another question: in the book by Henning Volle (Stiftungen und Erneurenungen von deutschen Ehrenzeichen im Ersten Weltkrieg, issued 2014) we cand find information, that Zimmermann took manufacturing of these crosses possibly no later than begining of 1918. So not all Zimmermann pieces are postwar.

Tomasz

I would have to agree with you it is like the type Homerjey posted and compared with my Mecklenburg Schwerin 1. Kl by Zimmermann I think it looks pretty good.

I was also reading this older thread from 2008..
