  1. Hi Guys, I would like to find out a little more about this award. I know these came marked with designer O. Pech and sometimes with maker L. Chr. Lauer, Nürnberg Is there away to tell the award types, ie were they always made from silver and marked silber 990, and the earlier types from the later? Why some have the makers name and some do not. I think Lauer was the sole maker but not positive. Many thanks
  2. Neal O‘Conner‘s Book on Württemberg references a study by Klietmann at 106 war time awards.
  3. Here's one offered recently. It appears to be a very nice original with separately mounted swords and crown with the nice K.M.S.T. catch to boot.
  4. Hi Vince, Anhalt‘s Friedrich Kreuz is an unofficial award so doesn‘t count for me. Hi Grey, You are correct.
  5. Thanks Tomasz I am also hoping to get some weights from other sources for comparision. Best Alan
  6. Does anyone know the weight of a Sachsen-Altenburg Herzog Ernst Medaille Steckkreuz please?
  7. It looked ok to me when compared to what I could find online. So I took a chance on it. Like you say scarce. Thank you for commenting.
  8. Hi Guy, Just tripping around Germany at the moment and I came across this... I know the pics aren‘t the best but does anyone have one to compare? https://www.ehrenzeichen-orden.de/deutsche-staaten/ehrenkreuz-mit-krone-und-schwertern.html Any input would be great. Alan
  9. Thank you Seeheld, here they are. Nice one. Like yourself I also collect the many German States, but have found it increasingly harder to find pieces. Is this something you have found also?
  10. Hi Laurentius, Thank you and yes this is what I have been able to put together from Mecklenburg. Do you have some pieces yourself? Mfg Alan
