Hi,

Help required ,new here so please be very kind to me.

This medal bar is part of a family group that I have just obtained,the wuttemberg cross has a little damage the cross is swinging by one ring, should I have it repaired ,the reverse has some damage as well as it had fell off at some time ,enamel and the cyber are both damaged.Have a lot more to show from this group but not sure if all to one man I assume to two different ones ,perhaps father and son?

Thanks for any help Freddy

Hi Freddy,

there is nobody with the name Pickel in the EK 1870 list.

I found a Hauptmann Pickel in the Ehrenrangliste des 

ehemaligen deutschen Heeres, serving with 2. Fußartillerie-Regiment at Metz.

Kind regards
Andreas

Hi,

 Besides the name on the hanger I was told he was a Major but I assume the the last recipient,So is it possible that the Hauptman you found was a Major in WW2 and the earlier 1870 items to a older member of the family's the chain with the minis is not the same as the ww1 medals?perhaps they belong to the other side of his family.

Thanks Freddy

So could be Grandfather from one side of the family and Father and son from the other, are there any known Pickels in WW2.

Thanks

Wilhelm Pickel from the 2. bayer. Fußartillerie-Regiment, born 17 April 1881 in Nürnberg, received the Charakter of Major a.D. on 29 Mai 1920. The World War I awards, both German and Ottoman, match those in the Bavarian Kriegsranglisten on Ancestry.com. 

The 1870 EK chain and minis match a Prussian railway Beamter, not a Bavarian, so perhaps not a close relative of Pickel (Pickel's father was a Bavarian Gymnasial-Professor in Fürth).

Very interesting group of items, the Gallipoli Star is a real gem, not often seen with a genuine case. What markings are on the BMVO4mK?

HI,

Thanks to all for there help,

the medal is marked wco ?950 and 900 on the swords, am I correct that the wuttenberg order is real gold certainly do's not appear to be plated.The other case /boxes are for ? the mvo fits in 2 of them but has no lid decoration ,and imo the ik1 case is a 1870 version.

Thanks Freddy

I believe the EK1 case is an early WW1 example. Ones from 1870 are extremely rare. You have a case for the Friedrich Order, which looks to be a real gold award piece. The MVO is marked for Weiss & Co. A very interesting grouping. The mini medal bar is also great.
