  1. Hi all, I've been doing some private research into the decorations awarded to Prinz Heinrich, and looking at images of his various medal bars, there's one decoration which is driving me mad! attached image, it's the shape which is puzzling me, the first six are Prussian, then unknown, followed by 3 British coronation medals, Austrian , and lastly Japanese, red cross special member. It appears to have a British imperial Crown but I could be wrong, I suspect it may well be some obscure commemorative or anniversary medal, but which country?. I've checked my reference books, but nothing. am I missing the obvious?


    any help appreciated as usual


    regards Alex K

    Edit, correction, British 1 x Golden Jubilee, 2 x Coronation!

  3. 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

  4. 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?
