  1. Thank you very much! It is indeed an awesome little beauty! Vince. It was last received by Felix Graf von Bothmer.
  2. Walter, thank you very much for your great contribution. here is a link to Schrettinger's digitalized book http://www.nbn-resolving.de/urn:nbn:de:bvb:355-ubr14543-2
  3. Waldo, thank you very much for your information. Yes, Ritter von Epp is 268. My bad, I inverted the numbers.. thanks
  4. Thank you Sandro, yes I have seen this MMJO recently auctioned. It is a beautiful piece in gold manufactured in WW1. Kramer’s VPP mentions in pp 78-79 that Kurt Ritter von Hoppfer was awarded MMJO Nr. 33. Thanks
  5. Thank you Christophe and Sandro. I had seen this wonderful thread with the list of recipients. As a matter of fact, I searched everywhere to see If I find the list with Matrikelnummern and recipients, but could not find any such thing. For example von Epps MJ3 numbered 286 was awarded two times before him, once in the 1800’s. Kramer list this as MMJO Nr. 118 So, any idea on how to research a particular piece, say 286, and come up with the name of its 3 recipients? I would really like some help with this. One more thing, all MJ3’s were numbered, and this number was unique right?
  6. I have a question for the experts here in the Forum regarding the MMJO engraved ring number, or Matrikelnummer, and the recipient to which it was awarded. I have access to Kramer´s “Virtuti Pro Patria” 1966 book, and Schrettinger´s 1882 book. Virtuti Pro Patria numbers seem to be chronological and not the actual “Matrikelnummer” For example, Oberst Theodor Ritter von Hermann’s MMJO that was auctioned a couple of years ago, has a Matrikelnummer 289. However Virtuti Pro Patria (page 147) lists von Hermann’s MMJO as number 150. I guess this is the 150th. MMJO awarded during WW1. So
  7. It is made in gold by Wagner. Unfortunately, I do not know who the recipient was...
  8. Thanks. Without any doubt the most difficult piece to get is the RAO3 with crown and swords.....
  9. Many years ago I posted a thread called "Finally after many years" showing a project of mine which took many years to complete. I have always (since I was a kid actually) wanted to replicate Manfred von Richthofen's Ordenskissen as it was displayed at his 1925 reburial in Berlin. At that time I had a copies for the Pour Le Merite and for the Red Eagle Order, 3 Class, with Crown and Swords. Fortunately, I have been able to acquire original pieces for those awards. All pieces here are, to the best of my knowledge, time period original. The only reproduction is of course the ribbon bar. R
