  1. 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?
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. That would be your favorite Chris, the 1. Garde Regiment zu Fuss.. Dated 1883
  6. 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.
  7. Very much a beginner when it comes to this kind of research. I was looking to find more information on the 1. Garde - Regiment zu Fuss after the start of WW1. I was hoping that someone could point me in a direction that might lead me to some more information or literature. I really have no idea where to start looking for this kind of stuff.
  8. Yes, I have his full medal bar and documents for most of the decorations. What I had been missing was the physical EK1, which I finally located. I believe I have a couple of picture from East Africa as well. Will have to dig them up and scan them.
