I have in my collection a lapelbow and a miniature from a Swedish architect named Ludvig Peterson (1853-1931). He was as far as I have found the only Swede that received the Albrechtorder with crown. The other awards on the lapel bow is Order of the North star and Order of Vasa.
Is it possible to find out when Ludvig received the order from Saxony?
Does anybody know how many orders with crown that was awarded?
The incorrect ribbon used for the Baden KVK is not the only problem this medal bar has.
The awards themselves are original, but I count 3 modern ribbons with artificial wear marks and only 4 original ribbons.
Here is a link to my presentation of distinguishing original ribbons from modern ribbons.
Drag the OP's photos #3, #4, and his last photo onto your laptop, enlarge them, and see if you can spot the modern ribbons.
