  1. I like the bar - but i`ve never seen such an early bar with this "Nicholl" hooks on it. I would let the bar as it is now.
  2. Hi together, First: I wish you a happy, healthy New Year 2021. Second: I found an old thread about GFM Model and his bar here in the forum. As some of you know, i also collect pics and postcards (photo cards) of military personel of the German Army. I few days ago, i could get the shown card. The seller didn`t know the name of that guy. Imo the card shows the later GFM Walter Model - here as a Hauptmann of the Reichswehr. If i am right, the AGFA sign on the back signs to me, that the photo was taken in around 1923. I cannot produce a better result with my
  3. The golden certification is about the Eiserne Halbmond ("Iron crescent aka. TWM") I sold the lot a few years ago. The FJO knight is a typical decoration for military docs and Geistliche. Sanitätsmajor = in German a Stabsarzt. Because of his service in Militärmission Türkei he got a rank higher.
  4. Hi Preusse, Could you please take the pics of the "Dr. Retzlaff Konvolut" into this thread. You can find it in search function with "Retzlaff" I have a few problems with the internet, today. Thanks.
  5. Hi i cannot explain it in English and "Google Translator'" is not the best source. I will write my opinion in German: Meiner Meinung nach ist das die Feldspange eines Deutschen, der in osmanischen (türkischen) Diensten stand. Ich hatte eine vergleichbare Spange mit einem Urkundenkonvolut vor ein paar Jahren. Meiner Kenntnis nach wollte das Kaiserreich geeignetes Militärpersonal für das verbündete Osmanische Reich anwerben. Man lockte mit einem orientalischen Erlebnis und einer "Beförderung". So wurde z.B. aus einem deutschen Hauptmann ein osmanischer Major. Um die

  7. Do you have a Schmidt in your list, who get the St. Henry knight? His rank should be: Oberleutnant or Hauptmann. Yes, i know it is a very common name....
  8. Thanks for help. This pic was taken in Trier. It shows a Major with IC 1st class 1870 I read, that in Trier the Rheinische IR Nr. 69 was stationed. Could it be Major von Lengfeld or Major Mertens (both in RL 1873)?
  9. Great, high quality photo, and look how much enamel is on the Schnalle. Since they will not close this files (as sometimes they do) - you can find a lot of good pics in our Archive of Stuttgart. Fortunately they survived 1944.
  10. Wiehman is not a German name - i think his name was Wiedmann or Wiedemann Imo the shown person is a Beamten guy - (official in english) - i would say a paymaster or a Verwaltungsbeamter. He began his career bevor 1897 and he was reactivated in the mid 1930s. He should be born around 1870-1875.
  11. I would 95 % bet: -A Wehrmacht Beamter especially a Paymaster - Zahlmeister (Oberstabszahlmeister)
