  1. It seems like not much is going on here so let's try something new. Show the best or your most favorite piece in your collection and explain why it is your best or most favorite. This is not limited to medal, anything is acceptable. So I will start. Below is the ribbon bar to Admiral Doctor med. Josef Freymadl. This is the first ribbon bar I ID its owner all by myself. Even Rick L. was not able to do the ID. Although I have sold almost all of my collection I held on to this piece. The above photo must be pre-1913 as WWI decorations and the Bavarian Jubilee are not on the medal bar.
  2. Thank you for posting and information. If anyone has one to sell please let me know. Thanks.
  3. I have started to have an interest in British medals and decorations. My interest has always been in researchable items which leads me to the WWI memorial plaques. Would some members be kind enough to post some pics of their plaques with the package and letters and what would be sent to the next of kin? Also what is the price range of the plaques? How difficult is it to get the persons service record? Thanks in advance.
  4. I can confirm that the above ribbon bar did come from Rick's collection. I am not sure how Rick made the attribution, but I trust his judgment.
  5. FAR 32 You did not know Rick, but he did have a great sense of humor. He spent months translating award rolls and relished the research. The results of his working, Daniel Krause and many others is used to make these identifications. Rick was, in some way a wizard. He had a fantastic memory and was very dedicated to what he did. I miss him very much as he was a close friend.
  6. Hello All, Has anyone requested the service record of a Imperial Navy officer? Have you had any success? Can you advise me where to write?
  7. Do you mean this medal bar of v.Runstedt? I had a line on it many years ago but the person who knew where it was refused to work with me despite being offered a large finders fee. I have no idea where it is now. close up
  8. I knew this bar rang a bell. I saw it before when it was up for auction. Nice bar and glad it went to a good home.
  9. I see a red flag, a KO4x without any service in China or SWA and no long service ribbon.
