  1. I think it was done from the owner after WW2. There are the third Reich medals missing like the airforce servicemedals, hungary warmedal and Sudetenland Anschlussmedaille. There is no ribbon of the KVK II. In WWII the owner wears the ribbon of the KVK in the buttonhole and the ribbon bar in this way. After the war he sew his decorations on the ribbonbar for veterans meetings.
  2. In my opinion is this the beautifullest bavarian Award and very rare. Thanks for sharing The bavarian MVK is mountened with the backside in front.
  3. Who was awarded with the diamond cross?
  4. That's very interesting. Thanks a lot for showing the documents. The pages are from the "Verordnungsblätter des bayerischen Kriegsarchives, Anhänge." regards Andreas
  5. Hello nice bar. What colour is the saxonia FAM? Is it bronce or silver? I suspect silver, as the bayr. MVK is also a 2nd grade for a Vizefeldwebel (segeant major). regards Andreas
  6. Helo Dave, thank you for the Marine equivalents. There are only a few MVK awardings to Marine soldiers. I am only aware of three ships with a Bavarian connection Bayern, Prinzregent Luitpold and Von der Tann.
  7. Nice collection. The green pins with parts of a bird are awards for a special traditional competition, called "Vogelkönig". see this link. If you seperate one part of this wooden bird, you win the special pin. In your collection are several kinds of shooting pins of traditional and sporting competitions. I think all are shooting pins.
  8. Hello, I am member of a traditional german shootingclub for over 40 years. There are a lot of badges, pins and medals in this organisation. There are awards for traditional shooting like the bar in your picture, given for "Schützenkönig" and other winners of this competition. Also awards for membership in the organisation 25, 40 50... years. Awards for officials in all levels of the shooting organisation and last but not least awards for shooting competitions. Here are some of my pins for shooting competitions from upper franconia and bavaria. Regards Andreas

  10. Hellollo CCJ, the level of the MVK depended on the grade at the time of application. If the soldier was later promoted, then the class did not change. It also happened that the MVK was awarded several times to a soldier, so could the class be higher. Here are all classes from wartime and the corresponding ranks: MVK 1st class with crown and swords: middle officials in the war Ministry like paymaster 7 MVK at the warribbon all others with the ribbon of war merit (Beamtenband). It was up to the service, but especially on the addition of "middle officials in the Ministry of War". Some awards after renewed bravery for1st class owner with swords. MVK 1st class with swords: Feldwebelleutnante, middle officials and z. B. field medical assistants, Reichsbahninspektoren MVK 2nd class with crown and swords Officer Deputy, Unterzahlmeister, Musikmeister MVK 2nd class with swords: Deputy Sergeant, Sergeant, Ensign MVK 3rd class with crown and swords: NCOs and sergeants MVK 3rd class with swords: Private and crews Here in german: MVK 1. Klasse mit Krone und Schwertern: mittlere Beamte im Kriegsministerium ( 7 am Kriegsband) Es kam auf die Dienststellung an, aber vor allem auf dem Zusatz "mittlere Beamte im Kriegsministerium". Einige Verleihungen nach erneuter Tapferkeit für Inhaber der 1. Klasse mit Schwertern. MVK 1. Klasse mit Schwertern: Feldwebelleutnante, mittlere Beamte und z. B. Feldhilfsärzte, Reichsbahninspektoren MVK 2. Klasse mit Kr. und Schw.: Offiziersstellvertreter, Unterzahlmeister, Musikmeister MVK 2. Klasse mit Schwertern: Vizefeldwebel, Feldwebel, Fähnriche MVK 3.
