  1. Hi yes I've seen that image before but never spotted the star on his right breast, nice decoration though, I believe that it had a red sash and possibly a sash badge
  2. Hi Thanks for the info, I'll check it out, nice image by the way regards Alex edit, Just checked Megan's site, spot on, thanks, a pretty rare medal to find info on.
  3. Hi all, a bit of help if possible, I came across this image of Alexei Evert in all his splendour, unfortunately I cant identify one breast star, I don't think it's imperial Russian, any ideas, all help appreciated regards Alex K
  4. Hi all, another unidentified medal on Scheer's bar, His "Wicki" page list some, but not all, but those listed don't seem to tally with the one indicated, any ideas, also his Iron Crown appears to have the obverse central shield with the F monogram un-enamelled, did they exist? As usual any help appreciated Alex K
  5. Thanks, for the reply, I suspected as much, regards
  6. Hi all, I'm interested in possibly adding the attached Imperial EK1 to my collection, from the images I've no doubt about it's authenticity, and looks like a "Blued" core, my question is anyone got any ideas as to possible maker, obviously a private purchase piece, jeweller made? but using available core and frames, any help appreciated. regards Alex K
  7. Hi Top Neck decoration, Lippe-Detmold Cross of Honour Commander 3rd Class, Civil Lower Neck Cross, Saxe-Weimar, Order of the White Falcon Commander class Breast Medal as for top Neck decoration, difficult to determine class Hope this helps, others may elaborate regards Alex K
  8. Nice, I like them,, good paint job, I recognise Nelson and Richtofen, but who are the others, sorry for my ignorance regards Alex K
  9. Hi I simply love looking at your collection, amazing way of displaying (And photographing) an amazing collection, I'm envious regards Alex K
  10. Hi all, I've been studying Von Koesters award list, a seemingly comprehensive list is here, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hans_von_Koester looking at the attached images, there is one which I can't identify from this list, any ideas as to what it, (they) may be? is it one medal with embellishments between the arms, or a more plain cross, possibly with a crown suspension, sitting over another unknown decoration, any help, as usual much appreciated The star is an example of the Order of the Black Eagle with Brilliants regards Alex K
  11. H thanks for confirming my thoughts that his was an enamelled version regards Alex K
  12. Hi Thanks for the additional information, looks correct based on these regards Alex
  13. Some interesting images of his decorations here http://bulgariandecorations.com/more/royal_collection any ideas, thanks
  14. Interesting, I've located a picture which I think is the award, one question, the attached is un-enamelled, the above picture looks like his version is enamelled, is that likely or is it a trick of the light on the picture of him?
  15. Hi Thanks for the additional info on the last three, always useful to know so I can add them to my database, regards edit, amazing, well done, different ribbon though? (credit Vicmart)
  16. This mage posted earlier, yet another medal bar, is the medal indicated a reasonable assumption, many European Royalty received one, I've not seen it mentioned anywhere, good thread btw Alex K
  17. Hi all, another request for medal Identification, Kriegsmarine Admiral Schmidt, The last medal on the bar, it is suspended from a crown and cypher, not unlike the Danish Order of Dannebrog, but a medal not cross, the obverse seems to show 1 or 2 people facing right, could be wrong on that however. any help appreciated regards Alex K
  18. Hi Larry another very nice one With regards to background colour I tend to agree, many of my "Portraits" I choose a blue/grey/green-ish background, it's neutral but can be "tweeked" a little to add interest at times
  19. Glad you like them, a few more, around the Crimean war, a few French included http://mashable.com/2016/01/06/crimean-war/#Z52jowPW6uqw
  20. Hi all, just for those interested, I came upon this site which I found interesting, images of Napoleon vets in their original Uniforms. very interesting http://mashable.com/2014/10/27/napoleonic-wars-veterans/#3wawo94uOEqU
  21. Hi Larry really fine work as usual, regards Alex Just to keep the ball rolling a while longer One that's a little bit different, I'm 99% sure I've got the decorations correct
