  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. Hi Tomasz, thanks for the additional information Alex K
  4. 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?
  5. Hi Tomasz, it does look more like "We" now that I've managed a closer look. regards Alex
  6. Hi Thanks for the comment, I'll try to have a closer look, you could be right regards edit, this any clearer?
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  11. Hi all, just a quickie check, got a chance to purchase this, does it look legit in your opinions, not named regards Alex K
  12. Werner had some commercial ties with Godet, so it could make sense, still, a very uncommon "Maker"
  13. Hi my list shows "We" as "Unknown maker" unfortunately, so we may never know
  14. Hi all, just a quick manufacture identification request, the ring looks like it's stamped with either "WG" or "we", any ideas? all help appreciated regards Alex K
  15. Looks like a perfectly good Klein and Quenzer made piece and original, suspension ring should be stamped with 65 regards Alex K
  16. Hi Thanks for the confirmation, much appreciated regards Alex
  17. Hi Carol I, am I correct is reading that the attached, in my collection has the wrong ribbon, if so which would be the correct one, regards Alex K
  18. I honestly don't know myself now which way it will go, it seems at the moment, out, but still in somehow
  19. Hi Guys thanks for the comments and additional information on my mystery Wagner, which regiment does the uniform belong to its obviously a Uhlan regiment,? I agree ixhs your archive in Stuttgart has some really interesting images, I often have a detailed look regards Alex
  20. Hi inxs The guy in my avatar is Eginhard Eschborn. Its part of a colourisation I did a long time ago
  21. Hi Laurentius, thanks for the reply, I thought it may have been co-incidental, I suppose I need to look for aristo VON Wagners to see if I can find anything out about him regards Alex
  22. Hi all, I came across this image from Landesarchiv Baden-Wuerttemburg of a Louis von Wagner, doing searches reveals nothing about him except his more famous namesake, the composer, does anyone know if they were related to each other or just a name co-incidence, Louis certainly had a distinguished military career, if so does anyone have a brief bio on him? thanks regards Alex K
