  1. posted in another thread but I suppose it fits in here A Saxon non fighter from 1870/71
  2. A new non combat medal bar , 1870 /1871 Cross + missing the steel 1870 war medal Interesting combo Christer
  3. I have this bar , think its quite unusual with a bow mount for a gentleman ? Could it be for a woman Bavarian nurse for example ??
  4. I saw a Mannerheim Cross for sale from Auono Kuiri at Bukowskis. a 2nd class went for 25 000 Euro ? Do not remember when 2011 The 2nd class awarded to Oiva Rönkä was out for 40 000 Euro ( but i couldn´t be exported out of Finland) And Tiainen says that 220 Mannerheim Crosses 2nd class where made against 8 1st class I think a genuine Mannerheim Cross 1st class should reach about 100 000 Euro probably ? Would love to see pictures of the 1 st class mentioned in this thread Does anyone know how many are known in Finnish Museums ? Christer
  5. Hi again , I War museum the had this one, labelled as a 38 cm rocket launcher from WW 2 . But I haven’t heard of such a Gun ? Could this be a WW1 Minenwerfer ?
  6. What is this ? Could it be a 25 cm Minenwerfer ? It looks big ! Photo taken 1915 christer
  7. Great Collection , the Silver medal for foreigners is really scarce , I haven´t seen one for sale in ten years. In 2006-2008 there was 4 ! of them sold , I was offered one for 2000 $ But I took my money and went on a roadtrip to US instead christer
  8. Hi , Very interesting pic ! There is indeed a Finnsh Liberty Cross 4th class on the ribbon bar , and if I see right the photo is taken in 1921 I looked through the ranklist of Deutches Reichheer 1924 and there is not many Hauptmann or Majors with the combo HH + BH and wound Badge is silver I found maybe 4 or 5 candidates but none matched the rest of the awards. That is a Reichsheer uniform right ? Search goes on Christer
  9. Hi Dave , I keep looking but nothing so far , but if I find him I post the pic here Have a nice summer Christer
  10. I can only find out the he was attached to the Detachment Brandenstein Com of the Detachment was Oberst von Brandenstein from 3rd Garde Kav Brig part of the detch was the 3rd Radfahrer Batallion with the Com Hauptmann von Wilamowitz-Moellendorff And your Karl Wüllner was in 54 Radfaher Kompanie which was part of the above Battl , Commander Leutnant Misgeld Christer
  11. Very Nice ! I have the names of 5 Swedish Doctors who was probably awarded the 3rd class w Red Cross 1941 but I´m not sure who also was in Finland 1939 ? They are David Lindsjö ( not in Finland 1939) Karl Lundberg , Navy Doc Felix Naeslund , Navy Doc Nils Rosenqvist , Navy Doc Sven Wahlgren , Navy Doc See if I can find any more candidates Christer
  12. Nice ones Johan ! Was they from the latest Holmasto Auction ? I saw they sold a couple of 1st and 2nd class medals without date then. I´m really suprised that Finnsih soldiers sell the medals awarded so recently , I thought they were very proud of the awards and would keep them for a long time. And these must have been awarded for actions in Afghanistan or similar I suppose- Christer
  13. Here you can see all of the different Types http://www.vapaudenristinritarikunta.fi/pages/show/4 christer
