  1. Walter is 100 % right. You've got a fake. Your first class with swords from Leser is also not a original. Compare the letters of the medaillons to the cross from Walter . The cypher "L" won't be made of gold. This classes of MVK are often faked. Regards Andreas
  2. Hello, third place won't be a foreign order like austrian. Possibly Jubiläumsmedaille bavaria. At the 4th is a Hausorden of Hohenzollern, 5th a hanseatic award.
  3. Until May 16, 1915, a total of 12 medals were awarded to soldiers of the 15th IR, so almost all medal holders must be.
  4. There are different dates for the medal for bravery. Act date, day of award, day of publication in the prescription sheet. The soldier was then honored on such occasions.
  5. Very interesting photo. At the 15th IR, 12 soldiers received the TM before May 16, 1915. However, different award dates are entered in the ranking lists.
  6. Sometimes brave soldiers got gifts from their king like watches or cufflinks. Here a example A soldier received a pair of cufflinks from the Crown Prince for his escape from a prison camp
  7. Nice find, I like it very much. The bar and the boxes of the awards. The clasp on picure three could belong to the Jäger-officer, this clasp would changed in 1913 to the Landwehr-service medal.
  8. Look, the second person left wears a MMJO. Big theatre with the bavarian King and the Kronprinz.
  9. Thank you for the presentation of his vita. This is not your kind of collection, he was not a Leiber and he was not in Verdun 😉
  10. JM = Jubiläumsmedaille DK2 = Dienstauszeichnungskreuz 2. Klasse 24 Jahre PA 4 = Preussischer Roter Adlerorden 4. Klasse MVO 4a = MVO 4. Klasse Krone (im Krieg Krone Schwerter) Gruß Andreas
