  1. It is made in gold by Wagner. Unfortunately, I do not know who the recipient was...
  2. Thanks. Without any doubt the most difficult piece to get is the RAO3 with crown and swords.....
  3. 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. Richthofen's Ordenskissen in 1925 had a Crowned Bavarian MVO , but we now know that he only got the MVO 4th with Swords. How that Crowned piece got into his medal bar is a mystery so far. Richthofen original Ordenskissen:
  4. Ok so a golden cross, with scratched W, but with silver swords. I guess it does make sense. A nice cross. Congratulations. I have a Red Eagle 3rd Class with Crown and Swords made by Wagner with basically the same eagle and letter chasing
  5. Hello this is a portrait of PLM (26.09.17) winner Heinrich von Hadeln, born 21.2.1871. I was wondering if someone could help me identify the orders mounted on his medal bar. From left Ek2, HHOx (13.01.17), 3, 4, 5, MVK Austria, 7 , 8 His biography records him having a KVK II+. What would this refer to? And the Deutsche Orders Almanach from 1908/09 shows the Centenary Medal from Prussia, a Japanese Order and a Romanian Order right? Thank very much for your help!
  6. Nice 1917 silver-gilt PLM. Is it yours? Is the recipient known? Which maker? W or Fr?
