  1. Mein Großvater. Could anyone enlighten me on what the collar insignia means? I know is that he was conscripted and sent to North Africa, where he was captured by the British and turned over to the Americans. He has an EK1 and can I correctly assume an EK2, or was the awarding criteria different for WWII?
  2. I always love these threads, always some very interesting pieces come out. I have a couple of personal favorites, not sure which I like more. Both were the most difficult for me to find, so they hold about equal weight.
  3. I recently received a couple of awards for my small Hohenzollern collection for everyones review. I know the Hausorden von Hohensollern Ehrenkreze 3. klasse mit krone und schwerten was awarded approximately 144 times in WW 1, but I was not sure about the Hausorden von Hohensollern Ehrenkreze 3. klasse mit schwerten. I know they were authorized from about the time of the 1866 war but I see them very infrequently and wondered if someone had a tally from the lists?
  4. Thank you for the nice comments, it is a bar that has been in the family for a long time. Claudio, I would show the back, but it has been mounted in a display for a number of years.
  5. I saw the one you mention for sale which got me to thinking. I still have no idea what mine is actually for, but it was sewn onto something. Definitely good information here.
  6. So I was digging through some of the items I have about and came across this. It appears to be a 1. Garde zu Fuss crest with a couple of attachment points. Could it be a an officer's pickelhaube emblem?
  7. That would be your favorite Chris, the 1. Garde Regiment zu Fuss.. Dated 1883
  8. I managed to acquire a fair amount of items from a family estate. Thought I would share one of the items from the group. I have seen them before but not sure what they are called. A silver Grenadiermütze for the departure, most likely transfer, of Oberstlieutenant Graf zu Rantzau from the Garde Regiment.
