  1. Yes, one is the Turkish war medal, pinback (Eiserne Halbmund), the one on the ribbon I guess either one of these
  2. Hi wow! thanks for the speedy and in-depth reply, a very distinguished career it seems, also explains the Turkish decoration he's wearing around his neck. It looks like he's also wearing the Swedish order of the Sword (Last medal on the medal bar), any involvement there in his career? best regards Alex K
  3. Hi all, attached is an image of a impressive 16 place medal bar being worn by a NSDAP official, clearly the medals are from imperial times, the name is given as"Fritz Lauffer", Googling the name produces nothing unfortunately, does anyone recognise or know of his career to allow him to so bountifully awarded? regards Alex K
  4. Hi Ben, thanks for the confirmation, at the moment mine house 57'er EK1's I may use one for my S & L 14-18 version regards Alex
  5. Hi Ben thanks for the response from your description do you mean something like this, if so then good, I have a couple spare lying around Nice Deumer by the way. regards Alex
  6. Hi thanks, I thought I'd scanned them all, to the best of my knowledge they are all still attached as a "String" booklet with the cover, ( bit tatty now), I've still got them, but unfortunately after a recent move I havn't got a clue where they are at the moment, It might take a couple of months to relocate regards
  7. Don't know if these count but I'll post anyway, found them in a small café/Boutique, a short distance away from the Menin Gate, late 1960's
  8. Hi Yes I did mean that photo, thanks for the name, I'll do a bit more research regards
  9. interesting image (The first one posted by 1812 Overture), anyone know who he is?
  10. As already mentioned, Friedlander, hollow swords, in my opinion nice, original quality piece
  11. Makers mark looks like FR, if it is, then its by maker "Friedlander", normally known for quality pieces regards
  12. Hi all, I have a question which may or may not be answerable but I'll ask it anyway just in case I'm wrong! I have owned an imperial EK1 for many years, its condition is as close to mint as is possible (To me anyway), it appears not to have been worn, the reverse hardware clearly indicates that it's of at least 1939-45 manufacture, as it happens, its by Steinhaur & Luck, The question, due to its condition, it may well have spent some of its time in a presentation case, does anyone have any knowledge or examples of WW2 made imperial ek's in cases, and if so, would the cases come as a standard WW2 EK style box, or a WW2 version of an imperial EK1 box, just to differentiate the two, (Different style of stencil on the top of the box etc). As I said, maybe not a question that can be answered, but fingers crossed. regards Alex K
  13. Difficult for me to say, but probably 14-18 period, as it may have been awarded for wartime merit. regards
  14. Hi it's the Prussian (Imperial German) Order of the Crown 1867-1918; 4th Class with Swords, looks totally original and a nice example, cant tell from the picture, but with swords could be awarded with the Iron cross style ribbon, black with two white stripes, without swords normally a pale blue ribbon regards My version without swords Alex K
  15. Hi Bayern, You are spot on with the price, the one I posted is for sale at the moment on a dealers web-site at around that price without note regards Alex K
  16. Hi all, thanks for the information, most useful, I'll "add" a note to my image for future reference regards Alex K
  17. Hi all, hope someone can help, it's a bit of a long shot, but attached is a (Poor) image of the Merit medal for the Wedding of Princess Sybilla 20.10.1932 bronze, simple question, does anyone know what the ribbon would have looked like, its quite rare as only about 275 were awarded, presumably to those who attended, any help, as usual much appreciated regards Alex K
  18.

  19. The ribbon at least looks like the korean_Crown Prince's Wedding Medal
  20. Wow, thanks for the links, I have seen those other images before, particularly Prinz Heinrich, I always assumed those to be "Colonial" Dress uniforms, amazing how regimented everything was in those days, regards Alex
  21. Hi all, I came across this image whilst browsing, and am puzzled, the caption mentions " Komandeur des Automobilcorps," I must admit I havn't heard of them, what branch of (I assume) the military was it part of, the image suggest some form of military/Paramilitary outfit, if so does anyone have any images of such? regards Alex K
  22. Hi Thanks for that, with regards to the medal after the BMVO4X, I was basing on the look of the ribbon, difficult to see but it appears to have multiple stripes similar to the Meck, mvk, but I bow to superior knowledge regards
  23. Hi all, He's actually wearing this, found it on a auction hause site regards Alex since the medal bar has been mentioned, attached, to me they look like Mecklenburg decorations, or am I wrong.
  24. Hi all, thanks for the information, I must admit I hadn't thought of the Netherlands but German. regards Alex
  25. Hi, assistance please if possible, this image from Wiki, shows von Kern, does anyone recognise the decoration indicated, It is familiar and feel I should know it but the brains not working, and I cant find it in my references. Any help appreciated regards Alex K
