Hi Don,

Here's my brother's court mounted Silesian Eagle 2n Class. Interesting to notice the taylor's label on the back.

Here's my enameled Silesian Eagle first class... notice how clean the rivets are. Usually the constructions of the medals during the late 20ies and early 30ies wasn't so good, since the LDO's didn't exist and also because of the economical crisis.

Ciao,

Claudio

...and here's my 1st class with Swords. The construction of the pin on the back is typical of the 30ies.

Here's a 1st class Silesian eagle (!!!!) mounted on a medal bar of a Schwarzburg's police officer... very odd, but quite nice! :P

Ciao,

My brother's first medal bar: this purchase of his dates back in the mid 80ies. It's quite nice to see to have such medal bars with its ribbon bar.

Does anyone have a photo of a vet wearing one of the enameled pieces?

Here is my absolute favorite little piece.

The Silesian bird is post-war, although that didn't stop me from buying this......
