  1. Dear friends, I got myself a ribbon bar. Obviously everything is sorted wrong and all devices are missing. The seller (whom I know for some time) told me that the ribbons (stiched together at the back into loops) and the bar have been found disasembled in a box. He just put the ribbons on the bar, as they came out of the box, for the picture. What do I have here: 1 - Iron Cross 1914 2nd class 2 - unknown, by the colors probably Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, maybe a civilian war award, unknown device missing 3 - Long service medal? Device missing? What blue ribbon with device could be on a pre-1935 bar of a saxon ww1 veteran??? 4 - Somme-Cross, swords device missing 5 - Sächsisches Kriegsehrenkreuz 1st class, probably swords missing 6 - Deutsche Ehrendenkmünze des Weltkriegs, missing "sword and laurel wreath" device 7 - unknown, looks like Baden Erinnerungsmedaille für 1906, but can`t be, unknown device missing also 8 - Champagne-Cross, swords device missing 9 - Sächsisches Kriegsehrenkreuz 2nd class, probably swords missing 10 - Verdun-Cross, swords device missing The order (except the unknown), as I would place them: 1, 5, 9, 4, 8, 10, 6 I need to identify 2, 3 and 7 Any input will be deeply appreciated! Thanks for looking.
  2. Thank you! I got it for an Euro, so not much lost.
  3. Dear fellow collectors, Just got this one. I would realy appreciate if you could give me an identification for it. Thanks for your help.
  4. Thanks oamotme. That was the Shah until 1907. I wonder why his name appears on a medal dated 1941?
  5. Thanks Paul! So I got it all right. Would be interesting to know, how many were awarded to Wehrmacht personel in 1941.
  6. Thanks for your reply on my question. Farsi has a different numeral system, as I understand it. Please take a look here to see, how I came to 1320. https://www.omniglot.com/language/numbers/persian.htm Also the year you calculated is after the Islamic Lunar Calendar, while the medal is dated in Iranian Solar Calendar. That would be 1941 for 1320 or 1954 for 1333. Why is the front and back of my medal opposite? Good question, I would like to know too.
  7. Dear Friends, interesting reading, even after 5 years, since I just obtained one of these and doing some research. The German designation for this medal is "Silver Military Merit Medal for Foreigners" ( silberne Militär-Verdienstmedaille für Ausländer ). Is the year on my medal 1320? I'm not so good with arabic numerals... regards Arne
  8. The patina suggests that they have been in the ground for quite some decades.
  9. Dear friends, I have to get back on this topic. Last week, a metal detectorist found those two buttons on a field in Germany :
  10. Dear All, I just was offered this South African VM, it should be a type 1, but is it genuine? I would be very thankfull for your advice!
