  1. Sure! You’re right.... πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ No Godet this time... but I had to have it since I saw it already on Thies auction in 2006, coming from the famous Seymour’s collection...
  2. Thanks Laurentius. Here I'm posting all the documents that the Bavarian State archives could find on him; they were extremely helpful and very efficient and sent me all these documents in PDF format on a CD. There are some "Qualifikations-Bericht" that I can't read. Especially those of 1914 and 1913, same "shitty" hand writing... Maybe someone could help me? Thanks in advance! Sincerely, Claudio
  3. Dear forumites, Here I would like to show you a nice complete group of an aristocratic Cavalry officer. Decorations on the medal bar: Photographs: Documents (list): Claudio
  4. You got always such nice β€œstuff”... and also with photographic evidence! Nice, very nice indeed! πŸ˜‰
  5. Wow! πŸ˜±πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» Thatβ€˜s quite a ribbon bar... it looks like a Godet, with mini ribbons of 1 cm of width. When I look at this bar with the Prussian cross for war merit at the second place and all these orders I was thinking of Ludendorff...πŸ€” Great ribbon bar indeed!!!πŸ‘ regards, C
  6. That is what I call a SPECTACULAR medal bar... and also its picture has been found!!!! πŸ˜±πŸ˜²πŸ‘
  7. Dear Komtur!!!! Wooooooooooooooooow! That was such a wonderful surprise to read your message today early in the morning. After so many years a name, face and history behind a tuxedo medal bar has been finally found. That is so cool; even more because the wearer was such an elusive and rather unknown middle-rank harbor civilian official . Many many thanks to your extraordinary research work; not even the poor Rick Lundstrom (RIP) could unfortunately find him... you have beaten the master! Although, I think that given the research possibilities of today, Rick could have given to the collecting and researching community of German Imperial orders so much more, if he had lived longer... Thanks again Komtur! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ€
  8. Thanks Rick! You know that I saw the exactly Sto arrivando!me medal bar with the same combination of decorations and documents being sold on a German auction ? Either is this combination not unique or it was the same wearer....
  9. Dear forumites, I'd like to show a Saxon medal bar and its ribbon bar I bought some years ago in Germany. Cheers, C
  10. Thanks a lot Andy! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜Š you’re the man!!!!
