  3. Greetings ! I am a very junior collector of German states orders, I will be very grateful if you could give some information about the Saxe Altenburg swords. I saw on the web that the orders can have 2 types of swords: "Roman" and "French", I join 2 pictures: I would be very grateful if you can mention the reason of different swords like different manufactures/ periods. Thank you a lot.

  4. Ilja, Not a medal but a prize. The inscription is not clear but I can make out that is is a prize for humanitarian work in the name of Mohammed Al Qassimi (Sharjah?). The top of the medal, I think, is, 'In the name of Allah, etc." Owain

  6. Gentlemen, These are beautifull items that have been posted. I'm more of a ribbon bar and insignia person, although my most favorite object actually does not really fit these categories. This buttonhole piece is actually my most favorite object. It represents one of the higher classes of a red eagle order as indicated by the oakleaves (and indicating prior receipt of the next lower class), and the swords and black and white ribbon for war merit. I aso use it as my avatar 😁 Would like to see more of these, I don't see these so often. Best, Peter
