  1. Interesting, faking everything now, I was slightly suspicious about the strange pin on the reverse
  2. Thank you both for your responses, from them, see here https://www.ehrenzeichen-orden.de/weimarer-republik/preusisches-ehren-ritterkreuz-fur-1914-1918.html There also appears to be an "Unofficial" version
  3. Hi all, I've been having a bit of a "rummage" around on the "Bay" and came across this little interesting and pretty bauble, I've never seen one before. Does anyone know what it is, and if genuine, I assume it's some sort of unofficial piece. It's described as "Preußisches Ehrenkreuz 1.Klasse 1914 - 18". Unfortunately the images don't give any indication as to size. Any Ideas? regards
  4. Hi Guys, thanks for the comments, I may pass on this one then. regards Alex
  5. Hi all, just a quick check, thinking of buying this, looks OK to me, does anyone see any red flags? Regards Alex K
  6. Possibly order of Malta,"cross of merit, pro merito , militensi, civil division Or long shot, Montenegro, order of Danilo I
  7. Got these two images on file, the one with cloak belonged to Walther_von_Hallwyls (I suspect it's the same uniform, albeit, the first image sans cloak and tifter) Interestingly the Kaiser wears a sash without a badge
  8. I suspect it came from the same source as this one, deliberately aged repro, looks convincing though if you're no expert, fortunately this was about the same price as a repro so took an punt on no great financial loss, made in the UK I'm lead to believe
  9. Thank you, I did try them but I suspect it was the uk branch, it said no stock if memory serves me right
  10. Thanks for the info, unfortunately a search seems to indicate that no-one has it available unfortunately. whilst on the subject, looking through the list of decorations provided by speedytop, it lists "Tunisian House order" it's a bit vague, could this be the "Nishan ud-Dam - Husainid Family order" by any chance? regards
  11. Hi thanks for the images, that grand cross looks very interesting, out of curiosity, was there an equivalent breast star with crossed swords and sceptre? regards
  12. The mind boggles, actually I've noticed that any images of Bismarck wearing his decorations be that photographs or portrait paintings appear to be as rare as hen's teeth, (unless I'm on a different planet), the higher resolution copy list kindly posted by Speedytop shows an ordenspange, after much search I've located two images, one very poor where he is actually wearing one, they differ from the one on the list, quality is to poor for me to fully identify what's on them, anyone guess? In the two images I posted the medal bar appears to be the same, with at least 2 more medals regards
  13. Hi speedytop, thanks for the quick reply and readable copy, much appreciated, regards
