  1. So it is.... Is this cross still in your collection Thomas? I found my pics from an auction on eBay.de So does Bury and Leonhardt Hanau supply award pieces and is this one? I notice that it does not have the notches either side of the pin that Don's and Christophe's show.
  2. What's the general opinion about this one? A good Meybauer? Does anyone know who made the award pieces? Alan
  3. Thank you very much Naxos, Great Stuff. I have been wanting to read these cards for a while now and its nice to see the what was written all those years ago. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11.
  4. Zur Erinnerung ...... Willy Müller Weltkreig 12 Aug 1916 6. IR Nr. 105 Konig Wilhem II von Württemberg Straßburg
  5. Thank you Naxos, "In memory of my departure to the western battlefield" would that be a fair translation?
  6. I am just been trying to piece together a few translations, but I am having a little difficulty reading the German script Any help would be greatly appreciated. Zur erinnerung an ....... ausfahrt dem ....... kreig schauplatz Chemnitz 10. Marz 1915 Franz Schilfen
  7. Hi Guys, I was hoping to get some thoughts on this Thüringen Wappen plate. Firstly is it a good one? When comparing with other pics I have found the starburst seems a little smaller, but is this just down to maker? The eagle is for officer but the the starburst is for NCO? To me the stamping appears good on both sides as far as detail. All comments welcome. Alan
  8. I would steer well clear, The Henry, AO and Schwarzburg ribbons are a different size from the rest along with order of precedence and varience in sword types.
  9. Looks like the one discussed here... http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/forums/showthread.php?t=857343
  10. Great Pics Dan, I see the the obverse monogram is a match to the image from Nimmergut where as the one on my original image appears to be less elaborate. Would this be due to simply a different maker pre 1918 or an indication of a later manufacture for this award?
  11. Hi Guys, I am thinking of purchasing this Hohenzollern Goldene Ehrenmedaille mit Schwertern. Does anyone know what would cause the inconsistency in finish from front to back? From the comparisons I have been able to make this piece seems good. What does everyone think? All comments gratefully appreciated
  12. Hi All, I been trying to find some WWI issue awards to compare to this one to, but I am not sure what to look for exactly. Can anyone tell me if this is WWI manufacture at all? Any other thoughts / comments welcome Many thanks
  13. ​In the case of the Lippe Detmold Honour Cross 4th class with swords I read that it was awarded only 82 times from 30th May 1905 to 11th November 1918. With Schaumburg Lippe being the smaller of the two principalities I think it would be the rarer of the two. I certainly would be interested to know how many Schaumburg Lippe Honour Crosses 4th class with swords were awarded if anyone knows?
  14. Hello Paul, Could you send me the PDF you have with Rick's bars. Many Thanks Alan ach_melon@yahoo.com.au
