  1. Hello! I recently bought a certificate for a Swedish naval captain is awarded the officer degree of the Legion of Merit and have some questions. Unfortunately there was only the document, not the medal. 1. Was the awarded medal engraved with the recipients name on the back? 2. According to some photographs he was later awarded the commanders grade (neck cross) of the Legion of Merit. Is it possible to find out when? He got the officer degree in 1979. 3. I would like to find a medal to display with the document, but I want it to be original and correct time (1979). Ca
  2. Hello! I believe the symbol of the elephant in Denmark comes from the old danish colonies in India. I guess elephants was very exotic in northern Europe in the 1500s.
  3. Hello! Does anyone know if there exists any rolls over recipients of the Polonia Restituta 1918 to foreigners? I am trying to research a swedish miniature bar with a Polonia Restituta knight cross and a roll with recipients would be really helpful. Thanks in advance! BR Johan
  4. Hi Christer! Do you have the name of any americans who recieved the 1st class commander cross and star during 1919-1925? Is you list published and available anywhere?
  5. Nice collection! what are the year marks on the stars? You need a sword order and an order of the seraphim to complete the set of swedish stars.
  6. Yes, you are absolutely correct. It´s the 1st class medal of the order of Liberty (Vapaudenmitali) and the last one is the commemorative medal from the liberation war (Vapaussodan muistomitali). The 1st class cross is the variant with brilliants, I believe only two such pieces was awarded in 1918.
  7. Do you think Matrose Reinhardt is the same person as Josef Reinhardt, Musketier in Res.Inf.Rgt.255 who is listed as awarded the liberty medal 1st class in Mannerheims order no 68? Is Reinhardt a usual name in Germany?
  8. Its belgian, see the post in northern europe section.
  9. If you Google the motto on the badge you get alot of results showing badges and helmets from Belgium. So my guess is: yes its a Belgian badge.
  10. Hello. Picture is from Göteborgs Stadsmuseum. 498 pieces awarded and 520 manufactured If anyone know of one for sale I need one for my collection.
  11. Hello. That badge is a normal hat badge for finnish enlisted men and have nothing to do with the medal. I would guess this medal have been awarded to a Swede because of the mounting (and its for sale in Sweden).
  12. 1st class proficiency badge m/21 of the finnish civil guard. Skyddskåren in swedish and suojeluskunta in finnish.
