  1. Hi thanks, interesting, I'll have to do a bit more digging, regards
  2. Hi all, spotted this on ebay and was thinking of having a pop at it, however, not seen the insignia on his cap before or recognize the service branch, the cockade, ok but why the eagle instead of the second cockade, any help as usual appreciated Alex K
  3. Hi Thanks for the links, confirms my initial thoughts, not the real deal, regards Alex K
  4. Hi all, just a quick question, any chance that this is a legitimate period piece? regards Alex K
  5. Hi Thanks for the additional information regards
  6. Hi all, another EKII I've had for ages, but can't quite identify the maker, I've looked at it from all angles but still not certain, the best I can come up with is CD? any ideas thanks, regards Alex

    Rising Sun

    Hi all, just a quick question, is the attached a "Current" version? described as IV class but I think it's V class, if so any idea of value? regards Alex K
  9. Apparently (From another forum) they were used primarily on medal bars as the reduced size fitted in with the size of other medals better, they were private purchase items regards
  10. Don't know to be fair, perhaps others may know, it certainly looks the part and was advertised as a Prinzen, maybe they came in a "Reduced size" regards
  11. Hi, thanks for the comments, which one is the "Orange" one? weights are Wilhelm I full size 34g, no ribbon Wilhelm I Prinzen with ribbon 23g Shaumburg 10g regards
  12. Hi all, I'd like to show a few pick-ups, nothing spectacular, but nice and simple (To me) Kaiser I Centenary medal, full size, difficult to show but heavily gilt, a Prinzen, a miniature and what I assume to be a ribbon device secondly Shaumburg-lippe military service cross and a Friedlander EKII regards Alex K
  13. Hi Tomasz, thanks for the additional information Alex K
  14. Interestingly, maybe I should check my own comments, thread here My "We" and another "We" both different, did Werner make them or just distribute them?
  15. Hi Tomasz, it does look more like "We" now that I've managed a closer look. regards Alex
  16. Hi Thanks for the comment, I'll try to have a closer look, you could be right regards edit, this any clearer?
  17. Agreed, they certainly were worn that way during the war, normally by those that had received their preliminary notification, but not their actual award, or those that chose not to have their award damaged in combat, normally there would be some evidence of wear either on the medal itself, or on the ribbon, press studs, ribbon ties etc, the one originally posted doesn't seem to show any of such examples, so it's anyone guess when it became a Pseudo RK in my opinion regards Alex
  18. In my opinion It' actually looks more like an EKII converted to a RK at some point, the difficulty is knowing when it was done, quite a simple job, it could have been done during the war or it could have been done 6 months ago from "Period" parts, unless you have full "Provenance" you'll never know, sorry regards Alex
  19. Hi Paul, thanks for the reply, absolutely spot on! I was tempted to bid on it, it was being sold by a resident of Paris, alas ran out of time, never mind, appreciate your depth of knowledge regards Alex

    Rising Sun 6th class

    Hi Added another Rising Sun (5th class), looks ok to me, once again, any idea as to time frame?, no case this time unfortunately appreciated regards Alex K
  21. Hi all, just a quickie check, got a chance to purchase this, does it look legit in your opinions, not named regards Alex K
  22. Werner had some commercial ties with Godet, so it could make sense, still, a very uncommon "Maker"
