  1. BlackcowboyBS and redeagleorder thank you for your kind comments. With regard to your question redeagleorder - In his book “Der Hausorden und die Tragbaren Ehrenzeichen des Grossherzogtums Oldenburg 1813 - 1918”, Friedhelm Beyreiss states that 50 pieces were delivered by Knauer. Of these, eighteen were awarded; and of those, two were awarded to men, the remaining sixteen, of course, to women. I would not be terribly concerned about how your medals are mounted. Inasmuch as this bar would have been assembled from 1934 onwards, we know how by that time the old Imperial g
  2. Gentlemen, From Oldenburg comes one of the more uniquely designed Imperial German decorations - the 1907 Red Cross medal. This one, being on a bow ribbon would be one of sixteen awarded to women.
  3. Sorry, can't show you. My bank does not allow pictures of their vault area.
  4. Gentlemen, I would like to add two more cases to our thread which you nay find unique. The red case is to a Bavarian golden Ludwig's medal for arts & science while the black case is to a silver Bavarian Ludwig's medal for industry. As you can see, the design of these cases does not conform to the pale blue with the written description theme which we commonly associate with Bavarian awards. I hope that you like them. Wild Card
  5. Alex K, Per your request, here are photos of the Bavarian MSO. Regards, Wild Card Hey Beau! Thanks for posting that beautiful Olga Order (case). I knew that there was one out there. Wild Card
  6. Yes, of course. For safety reasons (I'm sure that you understand), this cross does not live here at home. I am making arrangements for a visit so that I can take aa couple of pictures of it which I will post when I get them. Meanwhile, here is another Bavarian case, with its resident which I hope you enjoy.
  7. I am going to try to repost my previous comment which, for some reason came through blacked out. Gentlemen, I am going on the assumption that the White Falcon award is represented by the (solid) red ribbon which is located just forward of the ribbon that has been identified as a Hamburger Hanseatenkreuz. Since I think that it is safe to say that our recipient was a Bavarian, is it not possible that the red ribbon might represent a Bavarian Prinzregent Luitpold medal. Just wondering, Wild Card
  8. Gentlemen, just have to ask. I am going on the assumption that the White Falcon award is represented by the (solid) red ribbon which is located just forward of what has been identified as a Hamburger Hanseatenkreuz. Since I think that it is safe to say that our recipient was a Bavarian, is it not possible that the red ribbon might represent a Bavarian Prinzregent Luitpold medal? Just wondering, Wild Card
