  1. 1812 Overture, Veterans eligible for Austrian War Commemorative Medal had to pay a duty. So maybe this payment would have put some of them off purchasing it. Secondly the War Commemorative Medal was available from 15th April 1933 until 13th March 1938, which was just after the annexation(Anschluss) of Austria into Nazi Germany, whereas the Hindenburg Cross was available until late in the second world war. So maybe the bars were put together after the Anschluss when the Austrian War Commemorative Medal was no longer available for purchase. The Hungarian Commemorative Medal had to be purchased privately in licensed outlets upon presentation of an approval letter. So again maybe the cost put veterans off purchasing them.
  2. Wessel Gordon, No problem. Sorry, if my previous post was not very clear. I should have stated that there were two lists. The first and larger list(110 names and ranks) comprises of recipients of the PLM (not Oak Leaves) after 22 September 1918 and the second smaller list at the bottom, which is of seven recipients, is the list of those German military personnel(all Generals) that were awarded the Oak Leaves again after 22 September 1918, to go with their previously won PLM's earlier in the war. Below is a website that gives some information on the period from 8 August 1918 until 11 November 1918 on the Western Front, which is called the 'Hundred Days Offensive'. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hundred_Days_Offensive Hope this helps. Regards, Graham

  4. dond, Thanks again. Here are some more photo's , unfortunately the camera does not give me exactly what I wanted but here goes: - The three photo's below show a wear mark on the badge where the pin(when locked into place in the catch) touches the badge. The wear area is a metallic silver in colour. The photo below shows wear on the pin attachment. Again the wear is a metallic silver in colour.
  5. dond, Thanks once again for the feedback. I have had another look at the badge and found a few areas where the finish may have worn off. Maybe I am just grasping at straws but worth the effort to get some more feedback. The two blue circled areas on the photo below highlight a metallic silver colour which is somewhat different from the rest of the badge. I will put together some closer(and hopefully better) photos and post them later on. The red arrows are areas which you cannot see the wear marks on the photo below but as I have already written, I will try and post better pictures from different angles to highlight the wear and colour differences.
  6. dond, Thanks for the feedback. Stripped black(ouch!!!). Is there anyway to tell for sure?
  7. Would appreciate any opinions on this Gold Naval wound badge (non-magnetic): -
  8. Peninsula Commemorative Medal, Brunswick (Death’s Head) 17th Hussars. This medal was awarded by the Dukedom of Brunswick in 1909 to the descendants of the 17th (Death's Head) Hussars Regiment who fought in the Napoleonic Peninsular wars of 1809: -
  9. After a little more digging, I think the WAA rim markings may be W&A for the manufacturer Winter & Adler, Vienna.
  10. Nothing special but a little strange. My EK2, Kyffhäuser Union War Veterans Commemorative medal, Hindenburg Cross and Prussian Veterans Commemorative medal bar: - The EK2 is marked S-W. The Hindenburg Cross has an incorrect ribbon (looks like a Hanseatic Lübeck cross ribbon)
  11. 922F, Thanks for the feedback. The fiver is Zinc. I really do not know what the rim markings are, whether they are manufacturing markings or not . Would love to find out though.
  12. A few more: - This medal has three wound stripes and is marked 'HMA 1918' This medal has four wound stripes and is marked 'GW 18' Lastly this medal has five wound stripes and is marked 'WAA'
  13. Wound medals from my collection with different rim mint markings. Does anybody know what these mint markings signify? This medal has no 2 mm red wound stripes and is marked 'B.18' The next medal has one wound stripe and is marked 'GW 18' This one has two wound stripes and is marked 'WAA 918'
  14. macchianera72, Thanks for the feedback. Regards, Graham
