  1. Hello, I’ve looked after Reichsgerichtsrat Dr. Max Richard Emil Mansfeld and I have found out a lot of informations but unfortunately I couldn’t find the awards list or even a photo with him. He was born on November 29, 1865 in Wolfenbüttel (a town from Lower Saxony) and died on December 5, 1943 in Leipzig. In 1894 he worked as public prosecutor at the Braunschweig District Court, in 1895 he was promoted as district judge there and in 1896 was promoted as District judge at the Braunschweig Regional Court. In 1906 he was appointed Higher Regional Court Councilor at the Higher Regional Court of Braunschweig. He made the leap to the judge's bench of the Reich Court the following year. In 1922 was elected as Senate President. On December 1st, 1933 he retired. He also wrote some important books which influenced the judiciary system. Some of titles are: - “The legal benefit of the inventory and the position of inheritance creditors, in particular towards a majority of heirs” (1888); - “The publicist claim to reaction and its legal protection in the Duchy of Braunschweig” (1895); - “Change order with comment in annotations and a representation of the change process” (1908); If someone could help me with the award list or tell me where I could find it, I would really appreciate. Best regards, Iulian.
  2. Hello, Thank you very much for the 1912-1915 list, and I would like to thank you for the suggestion, I will look after more information about Reichgerichtsrat Dr. Richard Mansfeld, hoping to find his awards list. Best regards, Iulian
  3. Thank you very very much. It really is very helpful. I couldn’t find the Rangliste myself. Having in thought what BlackcowboyBS I will look through the 1908-1912 rank list. Best regards, Iulian
  4. Hello, I’ve searched through the Saxon court & state handbooks and Brunswick state books (the last post of mine is from that book) but I couldn’t find anything relevant. I will also try to look through Austro-Hungarian state book maybe I will find the recipient there. I repeat, my German is very bad and that is an major minus for me. Please understand that I am making great efforts trying to decipher the old German. Regards.
  5. I found this page that might be relevant in the 1912 Braunschweig Staats-Handbuch. I think that these are the persons that were awarded with the Order of Henry the Lion.
  6. Hello, thank you for looking in the Saxon database, I appreciate. Tomorrow I will try to find the Saxon Rangliste and I will also look for a potential bearer. I hope to find the book. Best regards, Iulian
  7. Wow, what a formed eye! The horse tail is indeed towards down. Only someone specialised in miniatures could tell us if the miniature was indeed one on one with the award but I’m thinking that you are right. About looking in your databases, if you could do that, I would appreciate a lot, there is no hurry, and once again, thank you very much for your time, I am honoured. best regards, Iulian.
  8. Hello! Congratulations for writing the books on Brunswick Order of Henry the Lion, it really is an honor for me to talk to a person that literally helps unraveling the history.

Sachsen - Königreich: -Kriegsverdienstkreuz Bronze 1915; -Verdienstorden Ritterkreuz (KsachsV); -Albrechtsorden Ritterkreuz (KsachsA); -Landwehr-Dienstauszeichnung 2.Klasse (KsachsLwD 2).

  10. Hello, comparing it with the Bukhara war service medal, the Lippische Rose looks much more alike. And I think it would also have more sense. Best regards, Iulian
  11. Hello, Thank you very much for these important informations, I think it would take me around one week to gather all that informations. Right now I have found an Staatshandbuch für das Königreich Sachsen (the 1913 edition) and I’ve figured out the abbreviations for the orders, now I have to find out the person with the most orders awarded. Unfortunately I couldn’t find the 1914 or 1915 edition. From all the orders I’ve managed to find out BayrMich, BrL, Jap.H Sch, OstrEKr, OstrFJ, PrRAGk, PrKr, PrEK, KSächsV, KSächsA, KSächsLwD and SpanI. If I am wrong I would be pleased to correct me. I have also noticed that the pear shaped award is between two German Orders and at first I’ve thought that it could be an German award but now I’m starting to think that it could be possible to have been replaced but I don’t see any traces of bent metal. It seems to have patina. p.s. I would love to like these posts but I just don’t figure out how. Maybe it is because I’m typing from the phone. And thank you very much for accepting me on this wonderful group. Best regards, Iulian.
  12. Hello, Thank you very much. I suppose it is gold but I don’t want to go and check them because I am afraid that they need to be scratched to see if they are made of gold. About the seventh award, is it indeed very similarly but if it is that award then it must that the person that recieved it has made military service in that country? Best regards, Iulian.
  13. Hello, First of all I want to thank you very much for the sources, I really couldn’t find them myself because I don’t speak and understand very well German. I’ve tried to find the persons that were awarded with the Order of Henry the Lion but I couldn’t find too much because all the informations are in German and it’s very hard for me to search them. From my researches only 5 people recieved the order in Officer class, and from those I have found out that one or two also recieved the Order of the Sacred Treasure and those people are Ernst von Uechtritz and Steinkirch and Otto Reinke but I couldn’t find all the rest of the awards that they received. That is all I could find for now, and I’m searching since two or three days ago. If the informations were in English I think I could have found more. It is belonging to me now, thank you, it is indeed a nice frock chain, possible made of gold, but that doesn’t matter that much. Best regards, Iulian. Thank you very much.
  14. Hello! I’ve tried to find the people that had been decorated with the Order Henry the Lion but I couldn’t find much informations… I have found that only five people recieved the Officer grade but I couldn’t find the other awards that they recieved. Best regards
  15. Hello! Thank you for your information, step by step we will resolve the miniature puzzle. #7 might be linked to Bukhara, but I couldn’t find anything to look alike. Best regards. Hello, thank you for your information, that is the First (the last on the bar) order of the miniature bar. It is indeed the Order of the Sacred Treasure Japan. I’m trying to figure out what medal or order is #7, because maybe it will take me to the owner of the bar. I’m trying to find out the personality that has been awarded with such orders. Best regards.
