  4. Thanks all for nice words. Sorry, I can not find the release date. On the left there is a gold and menufacturer stamp, and on the right there is only a stamp * Best regards.
  5. Thank you all for your comments!!! And I have one request... I'm looking for the original ribbon for MVK first model, can anyone help me?

  7. My collection of Austrian-military-merit-crosses
  8. I have some doubts about these boxes. I saw that they were occasionally selling at some trade fair, but I have never seen, that they would be selling on any major auction. Also production, inscription... are different from those of the end of the war. So I think that they are from the period after ww1 Please forgive me if I am wrong.
  9. I'm still in this beautiful city. Unfortunately, I did not find anything interesting in terms of decorations... Maybe I find something until Saturday. Once again thanks for yours help! Best regards, Dejan
  10. Thank you for the information! I hope, that I find something interesting for my collection...
  11. Dear members, in the next few days I will visit Budapest... Could you please recommend some good shop with Orders - medals?! Best regards, Dejan
  12. Iver I really admire your box with medal! But, I seriously doubt that one manufacturer like SOUVAL, used a box from another manufacturer like ROTHE with its logo. There was a producer who was making only the boxes - ETUIS U. KASSETTENFABRIK IG. BERGMANN WIEN VII... and probably this smaller manufacturers use these boxes.
  13. Rogi I can not say for sure, that the box and the medal do not match... inscription on the box corresponding to this medal! But it is a little unusual that the box is made ​​of paper ( carton ), which is typical for the late period of the war. And also the names of the manufacturers are not the same... Therefore my questions -guesses... Best regards
  14. Hello! The hallmark ‘A’ on the rim is for Viennese State Mint (Hautmunzamt Wien) and did not need the extra hallmark for precious metals... So it's definitely silver medal! But I do not understand how the medal from the period before the war ( WW1), finds himself in a box from the period at the end of of the war?! It is possible that it is a replacement box? I would also like to know if in the original set, was required that the manufacturer of the box and the medal was the same? Otherwise a very beautiful and interesting medals/boxes!!! Best regards!
  15. Hello Sam! This is amazing!!! Thank you for provided information!!! Best regards
  16. The reason that I started this topic is this gold Grosskreuz on original sash: I bought it recently, not nowing that without the elongated ring is not completely. However, I am very happy with this new acquisition for my collection... Thank you all for your help! Best rgards
  17. Gentlemen's thank you for your answers!
  18. Dear collectors, I have a question concerning with F.J. Grosskreuz. I would like to know if "elongated ring" officially belongs to this order or belong to F.J. Komturkreuz??? On the internet you can find Grosskreuz with or without a ring... Thank you for your opinion!
  19. Paul thank you for this information! But I'm hoping that I'll find something more...
  20. Hi, decoration is from the end of the war... it is bronze gild. But it was awarded for merit in Isonzo front!
