  1. don't know if this one as ever been in America, but I saw a similar one listed as Spanish American war souvenir.... http://www.stewartsmilitaryantiques.com/spanish-army-officers-sword-spanish-american-war-souvenir.27875.archive.htm Open for discussion. More pic's in next message.
  2. I am a lifetime member and will guide you if needed.
  3. Why don't you ask the French? There is a international zone at; http://www.passionmilitaria.com/f225-international-zone
  4. And understand what you mean by greatly exaggerated! I didn't know that medal and never saw one before, until the one I am showing here. I do like the theme, but in no way I would have ever payed 3 or 400 for one. Here is the story. I got it from a colleague on WRF who knew my interest for Belgian and - post Belgian Congo... It comes with a grouping who belonged to a guy who fled (at the age of 17!) to the UK along with the military who shipped from Duinkerk to the UK in may 1940. He joined the first Belgian armoured car division (trained in Beccles UK) and participated in Normandy operation, liberated the village of Dozule (France) and personally liberated the Queen of Holland who kissed and hugged him ... After the war he went to Belgian Congo and got his Kansimba commando badge from "Mad Jack Schramme " him self, for "services" ... something I hope to come on back later on. The widow of the soldier agreed the lot would come back to the homeland and that makes me the keeper of " that treasure" for my time here on earth...
  5. Wall space is what I am missing. Most are stacked away, like books in a library. Only the one's I like the most are exposed. A other painter I like a lot and started collecting is Felix Sauter. Sorry about the dancer in front...!
  6. Thanks for your message, Guy! Would you happen to have examples, please? It is ok Guy, I found some due to your message!
  7. Thank you,glad you like it.
  8. This medal came out of the woodwork and never has been in collectors hands, before me. So I assume it is perfectly authentic. The lightning bolts are assembled and not cast. And the eagle is fixed by two pin's into the medal edge and weld (or soldered). I like it a lot, although we will never know the reason ... But it will fit nicely into the collection;
  9. I have never seen this one before, can you help me!? cheers Kris
  10. I know, "been there" as well. I used to cast as well, not as talented as you, I used existing pieces I could lay hand on. I know the mind game very well of thinking in the opposite way, in order to deliver a good die. No second chance during the process! I did mantel pieces, gargoyls, and so on....
  11. Very nice indeed! I do understand why they come in 3 parts, very well!
  12. I gave up long ago trying to understand things like that... A friend of mins pimped it up, or should I says "chimped it up"; Anyway , glad you like it! Here is a smaller one on panel I just missed (over bid!)a few minutes ago...
  13. On sale on a French forum for 80 euro.(not by me!!)
  14. Thank you! No idea if they are Schliepstein... All I could find, is that the makers mark was used from 1916 to 1954. And this; http://www.decodiva.com.au/files/product.php?id=115
  15. Apparently no one knows .... http://m.middelburgsveilinghuis.nl/m_veiling/kavel/30774.html
  16. This guy gets high figure rates for his paintings with monkeys, just can't afford those so I am buying what ever shows up without monkeys... The guy's name is Jos Shippers btw ;-)
  17. Some of my latest additions, the second one is quiet big (over 1.50m)
  18. Hello, it would be great to see the sword entirely,also, to have a idea of what sword it is.
  19. got this on in yesterday from a house cleaning, never saw anything alike... Don't know how the eagle is fixed, yet.... I'll make better pic's today in the day light.
