  2. Hi David thanks for the clarification, error on my part due to it being partly covered Regards
  3. Excellent, I think you are correct, well spotted, thanks, interesting it comes in two sizes by the look of it Regards
  4. Hi all, another medal identification request, anyone recognise the indicated medals, all help appreciated as usual regards Alex K
  5. Hi, Chain of office, makes sense now, thanks regards
  6. Hi all, I came across this image, his name escapes me for the moment, however, more to the point, does anyone recognise the collar chain and decoration he's wearing around his shoulders? regards Alex K
  7. Just for the record, a modern copy currently available for comparison
  8. Thanks for the thumbs up! Regards
  9. Hello Elmar thanks for the comments, it's not often you see items in such a well preserved condition after such a length of time, particularly the outer case. regards Alex K
  10. Hi all, just a bit of expertise and advice, seen the attached for sale, for it's age it looks in remarkably mint condition, is it what it seems or is it a well made modern copy? any comments appreciated regards Alex K
  11. just to add, they are tempting for those with limited means, id sold and bought as copies, this one looks juicy to me, suspect it's from the same source
  12. Interesting, faking everything now, I was slightly suspicious about the strange pin on the reverse
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. Hi Guys, thanks for the comments, I may pass on this one then. regards Alex
  16. Hi all, just a quick check, thinking of buying this, looks OK to me, does anyone see any red flags? Regards Alex K
  17. Possibly order of Malta,"cross of merit, pro merito , militensi, civil division Or long shot, Montenegro, order of Danilo I
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. Thank you, I did try them but I suspect it was the uk branch, it said no stock if memory serves me right
