  1. Its incredible hard to say atm, as the prices are seriously going down lately, so i´d say anything between 1200 and 1800 Dollar is possible, i guess. It also depends on the condition and the possible enamel damage. Others may be able to give you a more precise evaluation.

    My new TWM

    I agree with Demir, the pin seems to be replaced. I focused so much on catch, hinge and obverse detail, that i didn´t even notice the pin. Weitze has one atm with original pin, if you didn´t see that already. best, Gerd
  3. That´s the super super super rare Kleinod to the Grandcross. I swear! Nice pic

    My new TWM

    Lovely piece, Christophe. Nothing wrong with it imo.
  5. Very nice! That´s the first certificate, i have seen to this medal.
  6. Very nice! I wasn´t aware, those docs include a description of the feat, thats fantastic. Great set, Chris.
  7. Yes, i haven´t seen many of these green ones either. Btw, the name is Anatoly Alekseyevich Nikishkov, Auke was so nice to translate it for me, when i had it. Not sure, if i told you.
  8. I really like this medal. The quality is awesome for such a common medal.
  9. I allways liked the simplicity of the Hessen-Darmstadt Medals, especially this particular one.
  10. The Breaststar is the one to the first class, btw, Second Model with the big crown (1867-1918) What does the ring look like on the Bavarian Miliary Merit Order? If its a round ring, its probably a 4th class with swords.
  11. I agree with you, ccj. I guess, most people are around on facebook nowadays, as there is a lot of participation. I personally am not a friend of FB, but it seems, its the place to go now for these things...
  12. Hi Chris,

    could you send me your shipping adress again please? I couldn´t find it in my archives.

    have a nice weekend


  13. I have no idea, if its real, but it looks pretty convincing to my eyes. 190.000 US$, Seller states, it was bought from the family. If its real, it probably is not even a bad deal.
  14. I´d say, display your favourite stuff nicely and keep something in the closet, if necessary. Its tough, if you are a document collector and want to display your stuff. You run out of space very quickly. Do you remember these selling stands for posters? Where they were framed individually and you could flip through them like a book? Maybe you can build something like that for your docs, shouldn´t be too complicated?
  15. That is a mindblowing collection, Adler1. And a lot of time dedicated to our hobby! Just wow!
  16. Hello everyone, i have a few pairs of shoulderboards, which i got with some Medals, i bought and i wonder, if there´s anything interesting, which are worth selling. Some of these seem to be the older WW2 type. thanks Gerd
  17. Yes, my brother has also three forenames, nothing unusual here. ALL my brothers have more than one forename EXCEPT me I guess, my parents ran out of names...
  18. Holy.... This is more of a museeum than a collection, Adler. How long did it take you to find all this?
  19. I agree, it seems to be "unverdrossen". Also, first line, isn´t there a "er" behind"Regiment", which would make it plural "der Regimenter"? Otherwise "des Regiments" is the gramatically correct singular in this context. Lastly, "...mehrfach den Maschinengewehr kaltblütig und entschlossen standhielt..." doesn´t make sense. But you are probably right, as i only see a "den" or "dem" in front of "Maschinengewehr" and no "mit". It may be a forgotten word by the author or a misconstucted sentence, but in my opinion he meant "...mehrfach mit dem Maschinengewehr kaltblütig..." all the best, Gerd
