  1. I have a still connected set that states: Albin Kuhlfedler Offenbach Kaiserstr. 63 13.9.77 1.K.Arm.B. 166 N. 314 can anyone shed light on this for me?
  2. I do also notice the mustache is not upturned like the Kaiser's style so this may have represented another field marshal? Kaiser Wilhelm even in young age had his mustache ends somewhat upturned unlike in this bronze depiction. The interesting thing is that it is detailed in every other manner so I do not think the mustache style is a "mistake."
  3. Another clue is the Order of the Black Eagle chain/collar. Does that help narrow it down to someone? Was that awarded to other field marshals too?? On the face of the round epaulette are three equidistant symbols that I cannot discern.
  4. If the Kaiser, it must have been a young Kaiser iteration. I say that because of the styling of the picklehaube but I am not sure. I wonder what period this might have been crafted in?
  5. This is on the way to me this week. 17 inches. I am thinking it may not be the young kaiser, rather, another field marshal. Any suggestions welcome. Also, how often do you see these?
  6. I wish I had a photo of it, but someone text messaged me with a photo of a St. Stanislas they have to sell that does NOT have the eagles between the cross arms. Who can tell me about this variety and what time period and relative value it has to a standard Stanislas? It has the cursive SS initials on both center disc sides. I have looked through my various reference books and cannot find any pictures of them, but KNOW I have seen examples here and there. Please inform. Also, should I be wary of fakes if this one was bought 30 years ago? Red enamel on one side and gold on the other.
  7. I was reading in my books that recipients of orders in Russia and in Austria were entitled to a stipend or pension annually under the old system and I started wondering if certain German states or other nations during the old imperial era also were accorded pensions that were coupled with selection for certain orders of decoration? With old Russia and perhaps Austria, there were front end entrance fees as well but at least they received monetary pensions for many years as part of their "award." David

  10. Interesting topic. I have a photo reservoir of pictures/portraits electronically of Prussian German generals and many have these in their portraits. My eyes went to the crowns on the metallic ends. Were the crown ends on the aiguillettes specific to the Germans or did other royal kingdom nations of the time also have these ends?
  11. Oh, how I would wish someone would write and publish a book in English on German imperial era medal bars. I really don't think a coffee table sized reference book on this exists yet. It would be an opportunity for a researcher/writer. I loved the format of the book Parade Medal Bars of the Third Reich, but the author of that said he was not going to pursue that route I just mentioned, which I respect. I thought I would ask him first. I know of several persons who would contribute to such a work. Who wants to take the lead and pursue? I'll be one of the first ones buying a copy
  12. I, too, commend you in your creative endeavors and their good results.
