  1. I figured there should've been oak leaves, made me a little suspicious with out them. Now I can't image many of this particular RAO was awarded, is there a set number of awards? Phenomenal as always Andreas, you are the envy of many a collector.
  2. @Triad08 Very well put, couldn't agree more myself, I suppose its fun to speculate with such rare and unique pieces.
  3. @TheMadBaron, further, there is and will be much variation to these caps, as noted by the single button, many would often times be private purchases, clearly evident by the contrast in quality. I'm glad I could be of some assistance, if you want an authentic Bergmutze this is one currently for sale at Weitze.
  4. @TheMadBaron,yes he is apart of the alpine corps. From my understanding it was a symbol of their specific branch of the army, in this case it is the artillery as the symbol is a grenadiers bomb. Here’s an example:
  5. @Triad08 according to eherenzeichen-orden, the oak leaves signified the upgrade from a previous award of a lower class, similar to the scheilfe of the 3rd class. Best
  6. @Komtur@Triad08 I may be wrong, but wouldn’t oak leaves be present on such a award? Especially with such long service, previous awarded classes would have made sense, or would oak leaves make it to bulky and it was of the opinion of the owner
  7. @Daniel, my favorite miniatures are those enameled crowns, clearly you hit the Godet jackpot here!
  8. Paratrooped, Welcome to the form, and beautiful bar, one critique however, the Ehrenlegion medal is actually supposed to be the Kreigverdeinstkreuz most likely without swords as evident by the missing swords on the Ehrenkreuz 1914/18. To your question, it is most certainly not doctored up. As you may well know, the years fighting in the war counted double for service in the army. Second, the 2ed class version of the Bavarian Long service cross is for 24 years, so having both the 12 and 9 year long service awards is totally normal.
  9. Thank you for all the great info. I have a further question to ask. On some rare ribbon bars with an Awaloff Kreuz, the award not actually on the medal bar, so is it impossible to determine the class of cross that was awarded based off of the ribbon bar? From what I know, there was a neck, breast and suspended version of the Awaloff Kreuz, did the ribbon on the ribbon bar signify any one of those classes? Any help is appreciated, Thanks
  10. Laurentius, I would argue that that ribbon is for the 1936 Deutches Olympiaehrenzeichen. Although the the ribbons aren’t in focus on the ribbon, the center of the third ribbon would’ve been far lighter and the edges far darker, as yellow ribbons go, per Zentarmedaillie. Regards
  11. Yes! Thank you, I knew I was in the ballpark with the medal being Swedish, could the next one be possibly ottoman or have some North African connection?
  12. Hi all, I'm wondering if some of Prinz Adalbert's awards could be identified So far, from what I can gather his awards are: Schwartzer Adler Orden Burststern Roter Adler Orden - Gross Kreuz Preußen Königlicher Hausorden von Hohenzollern Kette der Großkomture Ordenschnalle: 1. Roter Adler Orden 3. Klasse mit Krone 2. Kronen Orden 3. Klasse 3. Goldene Erinnerungsmedaille an Fürst Carl Anton 3/4. 1897 Zentarmedaille 4. China Denkmunze
  13. Hi all, Could I have some opinions regarding the authenticity of this Awaloff Kreuz, the dealer claims its original but cannot guarantee its authenticity. Thanks!
  14. Hello all, I came across this photo and I am curious to know who the gentleman on the far left is, what his medals are and a possible ID, second, I am trying to decipher the medals on the Chinese diplomat to the right of him. From my guessing: 1. Kronen-Orden 4 klasse? 2. Annen-Orden Ritterkreuz? 3. Possibly a Belgian order? 4. Order of Takovo ? Any help is appreciated, Thanks!
  15. Hello, This example of the PFL ehrenkreuz leads me to conclude the authenticity of the example in my collection, however I still would like some other eyes on this topic. Thanks!
  16. Well, the observe seems to be that of the silesian eagle, and the city of Breslau being engraved on the back would confirm that as its place or origin. It was clearly a pin back, if you look closely at the reverse, you can start to notice a difference in texture in the middle, this is probably where the original pin was set, but, as the grey marks prove, it was later replaced with a solder and a pin, thus obscuring some of the engraving. The A. K... is probably the owners name, and the Wehr. leads me to believe that this is a second world war pin, but I could be wrong. The 6 could possibly be
  17. Well, I seemed to have answered my own inquiry, it is in fact Lt. Gert von Pflugradt, and his awards: EK 1914 I,II Klasse HOHX OV2 mit krone und schwertern FAK I, II Klasse BH ÖM3K
  18. Could it be v. Hohnhorst’s adjutant? Oberleutnant Pflugradt? Perhaps his name be apart of the Hohenzollern haus orden index?
