  1. Hi Gents, Does this BVK stand a chance? Weight 27.24g and feels heavy in hand. Cross is Unmarked
  2. That would be great, thanks. I had the same thought Paul. It did come with a small lot of Sachsen items, but I could not find a match with the usual award ribbon references. It came with a small lot of awards from Sachsen. I don't think it is silk and it did pass the black light test. This could be it. Thanks Pierce Thanks for the link Uwe. I will take a look
  3. Hi Gents, I picked up this ribbon with a small lot and I was wondering if anyone knows which order it may belong to? Width 25mm Length 1000mm Many Thanks
  4. Hello Gentlemen I have 2 versions of the Bayern Dienstauszeichnungskreuz 2. Klasse für 24 Jahre. The one on the left weighs 15.10g and the one on the right 19.91g and is much thicker. Can anyone tell me the approximate period of manufacture for each of these awards please. All thoughts welcome.
  5. Hello Beau, Did Peter Ohm-Hieronymussen book detail the numbers for Strelitz for the period 1914 to 1918 at all? So that I may compare with the Schwerin 23 Gold and 21 Silver for the same period.
  6. Hello All, Is it correct to say that the House Order of the Wendish Crown Gold or Silver Cross of Merit from Mecklenburg-Schwerin “Per Aspera Ad Astra” was more common than the one from Mecklenburg-Strelitz "Avito Viret Honore". Does anyone know the approximate award numbers from each Grand Duchy at all? or any articles on their relative rarity? Many thanks
  7. I would have to agree. Details soft, Lack of quality and that enamel work around the buckle, I think the term was "Monkey Hands"
  8. Hi Guys, What does everyone think about this MVK 1st Kl. with Crown and Swords http://www.emedals.com/highlighted-offerings/germany/german-states/bavaria/orders/order-of-military-merit/a-bavarian-1st-class-mvk-with-crown-swords-case-of-issue-g13350
  9. Nice Bars Christophe! I would love to find just one example such as these
  10. Thanks Dan, The Battle of Neuve Chapelle perhaps? I would love to find out more about Heinrich Kempf and what he did.
  11. Hi Guys, Trying to find some information on this man "Kempf" Does anyone have access to any award rolls for the Karl Friedrich Militär-Verdienst-Medaille. Could this be a winner http://www.vintageaviation.net/kempf1.htm I am looking at purchasing this award so any opinions would be welcome,
  12. I have a question... I can't seem to find mention or even a pic of a 15 year DA for Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach. Does it exist at all? Does anyone have one to show? Can anyone help me fill the gap?
  13. I have just realised I have posted in the wrong thread. My apologises, moderators please remove. I have reposted in the Helmet Headgear forum
  14. Hi Guys, As my collection continues to grow with all things Imperial I would like to verify that I have got these kokardes right. I think this is how it goes..... 1st Row Anhalt maybe Sachsen-Altenburg Baden Bayern 2nd Row Hessen Oldenburg Mecklenburg-Schwerin 3rd Row Schaumburg Lippe Sachsen Reuß and Waldeck and lastly a Deutsches Reich kokarde

  16. Thanks Rick, I finally found a nice bronze SMK but wouldn't you know it lost in transit. Hopefully it will turn up. Also a big thanks for all your work ( and the gnomes ) I've been following the ribbonbar threads for the last wee while and its great to see so many names being attributed.
  17. Hi Guys, Would like some opinions on this 15 Jahre Dienstauszeichnung. One set of references I have state the dimensions at 43mm x 44mm @ 10.4g the other at 39mm x 39mm @ 11.6g both made from Tombak. The seller has added some dimensions to the picture I was sent, but he did not have a set of scales for weight. I would love to be able to fill a hole in the collection if possible so any help would be great.
