  2. Excellent collection and an invaluable guide for spangen collectors.Thanks Jim. Jon
  3. Fantastic!!Thanks for all your great work with spangen and some really beautiful examples as well. Jon
  4. Both very,very nice crosses and how often do you see a prizen especially an 1870 and both 25 year as well really incredible. Jon
  5. Wow that is an amazing grouping all those photo's as well,2 HRC are they both worn? I have a named DKIG in cloth in my care ,He also made it onto the Honour Roll But died before he made it to RK,it made me wonder if he too was recommended for an RK but got the HRC instead.Fantastic that you are telling this mans story,quite an important grouping this one thanks for showing. Jon
  6. Fascinating pictorial journey,I love it when you can put a name and a face to these pieces we all collect,do you have his awards?Interesting to read of his first RK being changed to The Honour Roll,a less common award and highly prestigious. Jon
  7. I could have sworn I had already posted these pics. [cloth-wmk.jpg] Major Adolf Mugge and DKIG in cloth. J

  10. Thanks for that Chris,I have been meaning to find out the correct pronunciation. JOn
  11. Nice badge and quite a fascinating part of the Lufftwaffe history,from the early days using gliders to train pilots in secret to the mega tank carrying gliders. Jon
  12. Nice PO badge and nice to have the name as you say a common practice.Old thread but worth commenting on such a beautiful eagle!. Jon
  13. That has some nicely polished highlights,impressive badge nice and worn with still plenty of frosting on the wreath,this maker does seem to wear well.But why do you say unmarked it has the BSW cloverleaf? I have one of these BSW Pilots badge myself.
  14. This is a sad story which shows some of the lengths these con-men well go to prize your hard earned cash away from you.Disrespectful as well. Jon
  15. I really love to see a cased wound badge.All of these have survived beautifully, great finds..... Regards Jon
  16. I should have destroyed this one but it was a return to sender and me to the optician for ordering it in the first place.yuk nasty ...at least some of yours are more likely too fool. Jon
  17. Hi I have spoken to Jim in WAF and I have been using his work for reference for sometime without realizing,he also sent me a PDF of his Spange collection,and he's also on German daggers forum gallery as I am sure you know.His work his invaluable for the Spangen collectors for sure thanks for the new link.I think the ribbons may have been sewn together after removal from the tunic but of course can't be sure.This must be an early KVK2 ribbon as its orange through out and not faded as was pointed out to me by another collector.Not seen the WW1 combined woven before,interesting thanks for showing. Regards Jon
  18. Hi This is my cased EK1 clasp unmarked but attributed to Eugen Schmidhäußler.A beautiful spange which is heavily silver plated it has some very fine detail which I found irresistible and I am very grateful to Paul Hogle at Lakeside Trader for this one.I hope you enjoy...

  19. This is the cloth German Cross in gold of Major Adolf Mugge. Since acquiring this cross I have found out the following information on Major Mugge. Born 01.16.1907, DKig Mügge,Adolf, 08.11.1943, /Gren Major, I..Rgt. 590 Major Mugge Army Honor roll 27.071944.11./Gren.Rgt 1057 Sadly Major Mugge did not survive the war, I have not found out the circumstances of his death but I know he is buried in the Wehl Cemetery near Hameln Germany which is appropriate for me as I kept pet rats for 20 years(Pied Piper).I want to travel to visit his grave at some point and have donated to the German war graves commission in memory of all the brave men who died fighting for their country.The cloth cross has lost or never had the twisted bullion thread around the wreath but has that well known Junker wreath with the die flaw on the 9.I have also found there are enough unique variations to determine it is the cross in the photograph and not from his other uniform.I would appreciate any further information on Major Mugge. Jon Major, killed 28.9.1944, buried in field E III 6 http://translate.google.co.uk/translate?hl=en&sl=de&u=http://www.gelderblom-hameln.de/historischeorte/friedhoefe/wehl/16namends.html&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dmajor%2Badolf%2Bmugge%26start%3D10%26sa%3DN%26rlz%3D1C1SVEE_enGB535%26biw%3D1280%26bih%3D635 http://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_08_2013/post-16001-0-60416300-1375974208.jpghttp://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_08_2013/post-16001-0-36506700-1375974234.jpghttp://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_08_2013/post-16001-0-81004900-1375974216.jpg non water marked photos for archives and databases available on request.
  20. I'm little bit late on this post but I'm new here.This is a hard won medal and It is a beauty I just had to comment,multi rivets are hard to find,how heavy is it? I love the design of the DK.
  21. Hi I have seen several sizes for stick pins,buttonhole ribbons & the 25x25mm Prizen spangen which were an were an option used for mounting on 30mm ribbon and various smaller sizes 5 mm to 16 mm for ribbon bars and stick pins you might find this thread on WAF interesting and if I can get permission I will post a collectors photo chart of various sizes.I hope you find this information useful.. Regards Jon http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/forums/showthread.pfp?t=83801 Ek1 clasp and Buttonhole EK2 1st pattern 11mmx11mm.
  22. Thank you for your welcome,I guess you could say this is just the tip of the small Iceberg.I focus mainly on Ek's,Spangen and Rohm Daggers,I have a couple of partials SS and SA and I'm on hot pursuit of a full one.Hard to resist this Clasp not seen any others like it yet would love to find an EK2 Ost combination.I was directed here by another member and I like to share my 'Booty' so I will be posting more and looking into membership.
  23. These are two of my favorite pieces which I would like to share a cased and cartoned EK1 by C F Zimmerman and an unmarked Ek2 which still has it's price written in it and is unused even still has some burs on the frame. It is also on Wehrmact Awards information gallery when it was in the Allan Pilch collection.Grateful to Steve at Past Glories for these,always first class service and good prices I use him a lot.
