  1. Here is what the the medals look like when taken off the panel;
  2. That is probably the reason why I don't have any in my button collection... (lol!!) ;-) You did well, enjoy. I neglected my button collection for some while and most contacts.... But I 'll try to find some help for you. There is a guy called himself "button guru" living on Malta I think, who happen to have a button forum on facebook, but I am not on facebook.... I was in touch with him directly, but lost his details...
  3. Hello, very nice and interesting! If you are in to buttons, and interested to swap, please let me know. Sorry, I forgot to state that I am not able to id the buttons you showed.
  4. Hey Peter, and apparently not appreciated by the public, I got it for 30 euro's at a auction.... I was ready to put quiet more on it.
  5. Managed to buy this ..."work of art"...at auction. "Artist" ...unknown, but I think it will be stripped and that I will only keep the medals, buttons, plumes and cords!
  6. Had a hard time to id this item, and I am still not sure how to call it in English. It is a jar made of clay and bearing the old coat of arms of the city of Antwerp. It is called snel or snelle and is derived from a old German word; "Schnalle". Not sure if it was mend to serve wine or beer (or both), but it was used during the world expo in Antwerp in 1894. That expo brought the middle ages back to live and Prince Friedrich Leopold of Prussia was one of the 1.5 million people who visited the event. The jar came with a doc, witch says it was the last jar standing and sold to a man who seems to have payed quiet something for it.... The jar also bear the AH letters coming from the name of the pub (De Aangename Hof, ...not Adolf H :-)) in witch it was used at that time.
  7. Nice find! Put it on ebay, then you 'll know the market price....:-)
  8. Nice one! And crap my Vietnam lighters are fake's...:-(, no problem, don't know where they ended... But here is a good Korean one(it came from a house clearing I did);
  9. Hello, you did fine! But this ain't a website, it is a forum! There is nothing else to do then wait, until a member (who has knowledge about this ) answers you. You don't need approval by a mod. I can not think of anyone to direct you to, but try to find a auction house specialized in this kind of objects, they might be able to help.... ;-) And keep us up dated, if possible.
  10. Hey Jerry, lots to do, and not many militaria related items coming in ...
  11. just got these in, found in a house clearing;
  12. Hey Steve, I am sure of that and very glad about it! ;-)
  13. Hey Steve, still love that set! And not able to replace it so far... ;-) cheers Kris
  14. hello, +1; do not degrade them to toys! Only if your children are used to get expensive toys... It would also have been nice to get the pic the right side up... They are all WWI related medals. It is quiet a job to name them all, but the second and last one of the top row (if the pic was not up side down!) are interesting medals. And the 3th of the lowest row (défence de Liége) (again with the pic right side up!) The 3 th top row ( old soldiers association medal probably nco...)is a good one too. All others are in a 10 to 15 euro range value (except the palms! They go for 5 euro or even less...)
  15. You could check results of auction's selling identical items, it would give you a idea.
  16. Indeed! Well done. I thought it was north-African or something....
  17. Sorry to say, but still "no go"... Here is what I get;
  18. Hey Werner, thanks for your input ans appreciation. The Medec link is not working.
