  1. Thanks dond. Another one for review. This one is a 2nd class with swords and oaks(not 100% certain about the oaks, there is no marking on them):
  2. Zähringer Löwen, certainly beautiful awards IMO. A 2nd class with swords, any opinions would be appreciated:
  3. 1812 Overture, Thanks for your comments. I have a few unanswered questions in regards to this medal and clasp. Firstly, I am not sure whether this medal is pre 1935 or not. Is does not have a silver hallmark on the rim, or the maker L.Chr. Lauer at the lower left of the Reverse of the medal. I believe that Paul Meybauer made some but I do not know whether he produced the silver version and I am unsure whether this is a Meybauer produced medal anyway. Any answers to these questions are most welcome. Regards, Graham
  4. laurentius, I hope this what you are looking for, I have circled a few of the areas of interest: This is what I first thought to be a 'BMVO3X'!!! but as you can see it is actually is a BMVO4X that has been gold plated. The flames are cast as part of the Order. This is a BVMO3X which has gaps between the cross arms and the flames: https://woeschler-orden.de/node/4000 VtwinVince, I have seen both Jakob Leser and Gebrüder Hemmerle BVMO3X's. Not sure if there were any other manufacturers.

  6. Servus Walter, Ich arbeite noch an meinem Deutsch, ein langer Weg. Thanks for the link, very helpful. Regards, Graham
  7. Servus Walter(Entschuldigung, mein Deutsch ist nicht sehr gut), Looks fixed to the cross arms. Thanks for the information.
  8. 1812 Overture, Very interesting photo. Some links to a website which has some information on these medals: - https://www.omsa.org/franz-joseph-bravery-medal-1859-1866/ https://www.omsa.org/franz-joseph-bravery-medal-1866-1915/ The soldier in the photo does not look old enough to have served in both the Austro-Prussian war of 1866 (in which he could have received the left facing Franz Joseph bravery medal) and in World War One (in which he would have had to have served to receive the Karl Troop Cross which was only instituted from 13th December 1916).
