  1. There where probably records of recipients but much of the information was destroyed during WWII. Here is a diploma for the medal. Funny to see the colours of the ribbon and flag and the meaning today.
  2. Gentlemen, This is a serbian cavalry/infantry officers pickelhaube M1847. Serbia was a small country and often adopted other countries design. Except for the serbian coat of arms, is the helmet prussian or russian? To me it looks a bit russian but I might be wrong, what is your opinion?

  4. Gentlemen, I stumbled across this Military Cross with the hallmarks of "Paul Delande" and "bronze" but the actual badge is in silver. I don´t find it so well made, what is your opinion, is it fake or what is it?
  5. Laurentius, I like more the gold ones but I understand what you mean. Yes, it is the simplicity of the design and the colours goes so well together makes it a beautiful order. Yes you did, you mentioned "Bron whp"?
  6. Magnificent piece!! Congratulation! What does "whp" mean, workshop?
  7. No, unfortunately no hallmarks. I have the book on the orders from Luxembourg and there I can read the different producers but I would like to know which of the producers made the different badges that I have.
  8. Gentlemen, I have, for some strange reason, begun to collect the order of the Oak Crown. I have three badges, two in gold and one in silver. My question is, who is the producer? The first from the left has the same medallion as the badge in the middle but, the first badge (cross) is made of silver while the other one is in gold. The sphere holding the ring is also different between those two badges. The last one to the far right is also made of gold but the medallion, and the oak branches are completely different. On the bottom picture you can see that the thickness also varies. Any information would be appreciated. Thank you!
  9. Nice collection! But I have one question, when is the red ribbon used and when is the yellow ribbon used on the Liberty cross with the red cross? How many Liberty crosses withe the red cross 1941 where issued?

Erich Milch got the I class of the same order.
