  1. Hello everyone, I am surprised that these books are so sought after. I have duplicated volumes 1 - 6 and put them up for sale as a package for sale in a German forum. There wasn't a single demand for it. Volume 1 is particularly sought after. As far as I know, the 7th volume is still available in bookshops. I still remember that I was looking for the first volume for a long time and paid double the original price. One can see how diverse the demand for these excellent volumes is. Many greetings Walter
  2. Oh sorry, my english is not good and the google translator may have translated it incorrectly. Ich frage ihn mal. Did the Peuße get a Bavarian award?
  3. I know someone who has access to all awards of the MVO and MVK. He didn't find a Kahle. I also have to go back to the VOBl. 1914 to 1920 checked. No Kahle is mentioned here either.
  4. Servus Chris, the IR 51 was probably not a Bavarian regiment. Between 1914 and 1920 I did not find any MVK 1, 2 or 3 awarded to "Kahle". Also no award to a non-Bavarian.
  5. Hello Chris, I have now checked again, a "Kahle" did not receive any MVK in WWI. No matter what first name. How sure will it be that the above-mentioned "Kahle" is really shown in the picture?
  6. I forgot, Hemmerle VS-medallions in 1st grade were always made in three parts like an MVO.
  7. Servus from Bavaria, actually I don't want to depress the positive mood but I'm not that enthusiastic about the MVK 1 with the crown and swords. This is an MVK from the manufacturer Deschler. MVK 1 Kr. X were only made by the manufacturers Hemmerle and Leser. There is only one early form of this rare MVK per manufacturer. I am showing the originals of the award, which has only been given 146 times. 8 of them only existed on the war ribbon. 138 were warded on the so-called "Beamtenband", the ribbon for war merit. Originals only have to look like this, so only like this! The VS medal
  8. Servus Chuck, sh. auch hier: http://h2385226.stratoserver.net/wbb4/index.php?thread/74090-centenarmedaille-1897/&postID=481959#post481959 Viele Grüße Walter
  9. I think there should be a medal. Or maybe a LandwehrDA 1st or 2nd class. All of which is speculative. l.
  10. So the medalbar looks better except for the DA. A DA for NCOs and soldiers should go here. In contrast to the 1st class, this DA cross 2nd class could only be awarded to officers and higher military officials. The 1st class could also be awarded to lower ranks (see attachment)
  11. Servus VtwinVince, i think this wasn't a ribbon bar buckle made by an officer. I think that another DA and a MVK 1. Form belong here. There are of course other options. Does the EK 1870 belong to the ribbon bar?
