Hi Guys,

Anyone here who collects the various state pinbacks and who managed to catch Torsten Straube's update today would certainly have peaked many's interest, myself included.

I would like to hear people's thoughts on these 3 pinbacks in particular.

Lippe Kriegsehrenkreuz für heldenmütige Tat 1914 Steckkreuz - A good award piece by Zimmermann? Do you think the pin has been reattached?

Reuß Kriegsverdienstkreuz 1915 Steckkreuz - An award piece? Possible maker?

Sachsen-Altenburg Herzog Ernst Medaille mit Schwertern Steckkreuz - An award piece? Possible maker?

Those who have you who have these nice awards already, I would love to hear your comparisons.

Alan

Hi Alan,

I have no problem with the Kriegsehrenkreuz für heldenmütige Tat Lippe-Detmold.
It´s a typical Zimmermann-piece, as it should look like.

Regards
Roman

Thank you Roman for opinion and support much appreciated.

I look forward to adding this zimmermann Lippe Kriegsehrenkreuz to my collection along with the Reuß Kriegsverdienstkreuz.

I suppose, the weights are listed in big (5 volumes) Nimmergut's " Deutsche Orden und Ehrenzeichen " - but I have not this book yet.

Here is a recent fake of the Saxon Altenburg cross that sold on ebay.de recently. Note the soft details when compared to the one above.

Thanks Don for posting the pics. I see it went for 557Euro, pricey filler.

The seller is currently going down the bidder list offering a second one for less. Uses the story that the soldier had more than one for wear on a second uniform.  What are the chances of two originals turning up, honestly?  I'm sure he has found a second sucker by now.
