  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?
  12. Bay. MVK 1. Klasse 2. Form 1905 - 1913 Bay. MVK 2. Klasse 2. Form 1905 - 1913 Bay. MVK 2. Klasse 2. Form 1905 - 1913 rare variant
  13. Servus Michael, the MVK 2 X is an original from the manufacturer Leser. Easily recognized by the belt buckle, the agraffe and the swords. regards Walter
  14. Servus Eric, is the front medallion made of gold? If it is not made of gold but is only gold-plated, the outer edge of the lower cross arm on the backside must be wider. Since the cross you are showing does not have a wider border, it can only be an original if the medallion is made of gold. The cross you are showing comes from the manufacturer Leser. The enamel seems good. In the appendix an MVK 1st class with swords for comparison. The last picture shows the widened edge of a reader's cross, which has a gold-plated front medallion. Such crosses were made from 1
  15. Hello Eric, I'm sorry, this is not an original. Originals were only made by Leser and Hemmerle and they are all very early productions of excellent quality. The front medallions were always made of gold, 3-part at Hemmerle, 1-part at Leser. Your piece is from the manufacturer Weiss and was subsequently upgraded. A total of 146 pieces were awarded, of which 138 were on war merit ribbon and 8 on war ribbon. MVKs 1st class with crown and swords have been imitated for many decades to the detriment of collectors. Loaned originals must always look like the pictures be
  16. So I thank you when I get information ..... For the price, which is MVK 2 X = 120 euros, EK 2 = 35 euros, Kyffhäuser = 10 euros, DA 9 = 20 euros, DA LW = 30 euros, clasp 50 euros, total 265 euros. The prices apply to Germany and can probably be achieved on ebay. More expensive at dealers.
  17. These stories reflect a simple and old Bavarian lifestyle, which unfortunately cannot be translated. greetings Walter
  18. 😀 Anyone who deals with the Bavarian Military Merit Medal 1870/71, of course, knows the daring story of Franz Dettenhofer from the 3rd Chevaulegers Regiment: It was about 5 o'clock now; the darkness that had already set in, intensified by a thick fog, made it difficult to see beyond 100 steps. Around 5:30 a.m., Chevauleger corporal Franz Dettenhofer from Vötting, Freising District Office, the 4th squadron of the 3rd Chevauleger Regiment, was ordered to investigate whether the last-mentioned battery was still in its previous position or not. He immediately rode with 11 men and
  19. At least the magazine is now online. Many thanks to Christophe and best regards from Bavaria Walter
