  3. Early (1880s) black and white enamel cross flory of the chivalrous Order of the Militia of Jesus Christ. Face and reverse identical.

  10. thx Paul! maybe a souvenir pin?! http://www.frammuseum.no/Home.aspx
  11. I bought this pin some time ago - a few days ago a friend of mine told me the ship in the middle looks like the 'Fram'. Could anyone identify the pin? Thank you. Zorg
  12. In my opinion it's Germany respectively Alsace-Lorraine. The flag with the Imperial Eagle - it's a decoration flag with a brider stripe in the middle. The 'W' (for Wilhelm?) on the house above. The boat in the foreground ...is that a pioneer boat? I think so.
  13. Unknown type of Vittorio Emanuelle III merit medal. Diameter: ~38mm. Any suggestions?
  14. Yes - a needle in a haystack. But I think the haystack is not too big. The tunnel on the photograph is a special tunnel ...a navigable tunnel - a tunnel for a canal! For example: The Marne-Rhine Canal / Arzviller http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/d/d3/Rhein-Marne-Kanal-Tunnel_03.JPG
  15. Adolf Georg, Prince of Schaumburg-Lippe. Bronce medal 1869 from F. Brehmer. Silver wedding with Hermine Princess of Waldeck. In poor corroded shape. Anyone interested?
