  1. It’s fun to go back and look through the old threads once in a while!
  2. Does anyone here own this bar or know where it is? Please contact me.
  3. This is a nice format and i enjoy the added information. There was a version of this done once but not as focused.
  4. Just send the photos to Andreas/Medalnet. Chances are he already knows the cross.
  5. Beautiful high quality bar! I wonder if Godet did “Bavarian” wrap bars or only this typical type? His bar would look odd in a parade with a bunch of other Bavarians. I’m glad you added another fine piece to your collection!
  6. Those look like the type of circles you see on many of the original u-boat badges. I wonder if they share a common maker?
  7. I bought a pile of items today and the grouping is definitely centered on the battle of Rorke’s Drift. My years of collecting tell me this is most likely a bag of reproduction insignia. I am pretty far out of my knowledge on these pieces but it was a can’t lose price even if it’s all fake. I know better photos will be needed but I’m just wondering if there is anything here that looks to be period.
  8. Her is the MVK photo from the auction. The description. There does not seem to be a ribbon loop in the photo so that detail matches. Was it ever fashion in Bavaria to have medals guilted? I can’t tell you how many gold FAM’s I have from or have seen from Saxony and I’m sure they are all awarded as bronzes.
  9. This is my 25 year total. I do have one in a box and a couple others in groupings.
  10. Nice one! I’ll pull mine out later and look closer but I would have bought yours. I’m not a huge Wound Badge guy but these are just special!
  11. What a fantastic piece! I’m surprised there is no Century medal but this may be a style choice in only having “ the good stuff on a bar”. I hope a name can be found.
  12. Here are my loose 25 year crosses. The smooth arm with the turned small ring and split ring are very early. The cross center bottom is stamped Hossauer on the rim of the body between the 3 o’clock and 6 o’clock arms.
  13. Thank you sir! It has the oak leaf and acorn motif of so many Freikorps pieces but then again it’s a German thing.
  14. This looks like a Freikorp collar tab piece except most I have seen are gold and this is silver. The back has that rainbow toning and it is not magnetic. I think it is silver. It is in a grouping from Württemberg and there are no Freikorps items present. Could this just be something you could sew to your shooting cap? I checked my sources and did not find a match.
  15. Experts looked at these long ago. It’s posts like yours that remind me of why I don’t bother sharing items from my collection much anymore. What I wouldn’t give for the old GMIC!
  16. Without any devices I guess I’ll never be sure. I went with EK2 as this type of bar seems to be a later style but it could be a remounted group to look sharp at the Bier Garden.
  17. This is a ribbon bar now but can easily be reloaded. There are no wreaths or swords on the second and third positions but based on the order I’m guessing I need two knights crosses to restore this bar. The EK and Colonial medal are easy but if I need enamel I may just leave this as a ribbon bar. Is there a less expensive combination that would satisfy this bar? The knights crosses both have those odd “neck order” type suspensions so they would be a pain on this bar anyhow.
