  1. The right one is the „golden“ cross but the gold plate is almost gone.
  2. The medal bar of a servant to Queen Emma who literally served her until the end.
  3. Hi maxblue, I do share your passion! Here is a very early piece I could recently acquire. It is by Bron whp produced only 40 pieces before he died.
  4. Medal bar of Lucas Roelfsema (1874-1929) who arrived together with Jan Hendrik Sar on February 23rd in Vlora/Albania.
  5. The excellent book stops with the medals awarded in 1890. Thus, it will not help Andreas.
  6. The current discussion on how many battle clasps could be worn by an individual 1870/71 veteran reminded me of sharing images of this piece with you. Otherwise unpublished research of a member (CSForrester) of the German forum (SDA) confirms that the battle clasps with the typical dammage on the "E" were produced by Godet.
  7. Yes, and I have them. However, I am afraid the gentleman on your painting is not to be found among the soldiers listed there since 1. the ribbon is not correct 2. the medal on the painting is way too smal 3. the Nassau medal was not awarded to foreign troops but only to those in the duke's service Do also not forget that for the bigger share of the Napoleonic Wars Prussians and Nassauers were fighting each other (incl. at Kolberg 1807) and probably only joined forces at Waterloo.
  8. I am afraid there is some sort of confusion: - Prussian regiments did not have individual coat of arms but would all display the Prussian eagle on their helmets. - Even pre-1866 Nassovian troops did not have a horse but a lion on their shakos. Maybe you are referring to Hannover? - None of the battles took place in 1813.
  9. Sad. Here is an other Jakob who did not return. He was my greatgrandfather's brother.
  10. Member of the 7th Thuringian Infantry Regiment No. 96 proudly wearing his EKII and the Reus Merit Medal with swords.
