    I'm collecting miniature Orders & Decorations from the Older European Kingdoms, preferrably before 1918. However, beeing from Denmark, I would take an special interest in the Scandinavian Countries.

  1. Chris, you may be right, I'm completely out of my comfort zone here, so any comments in respect of originality is appreciated as well.
  2. This should be an old, although not awarded, Army MoH. When looking at other web sites I can see that these are classified as ie type 4 or 5 and are normally dated for WW1, WW2 or other periods. But I simply don't have a clue of what to look for and have been unable to find an online source, so any help would be appreciated. If anybody knows, try to explain what to look for instead if simply saying "type something". Thanks, Lars
  3. Hi Micke. Unfortunately I don't have a provenience. It's actually not the same orders in different classes, you'll have a Wasa 1st class commander, badge and star, and for the two Thai Orders, the Elephant and Crown, you'll have the same setup, badge and star of the orders.
  4. To support Pauls comment I can show you an example of an older type gold miniature (yes, I have choosen a Swedish group) 😉

      Hello Peter, good to get in touch again.

      Shipping to Australia seems to be a problem for the moment as you're not on the list of countries which I can ship to, but sometime in the future things should be normal again.

      I'm normally quite reluctant to close auctions as I hate when others do so. But as we have dealt before I believe I can do so, but I would ask the listing price plus postage and the 4% PayPal fee (a bank transfer is without fees within EU so that's why PayPal isn't listed as an option). If this is of interest we can do so but when you'll receive it is unclear, your guess is as good as mine. I may also have a Bulgarian Medal of Merit in Silver mini which perhaps could be of your interest?

      Kind regards, Lars

      Hi Lars,

      Thank you for the reply

      The reason I asked you is because our Government put 10% Tax on all sales from overseas on Ebay.

      However if there are any doubts for the Post simply forget it  I will leave for times better the now.

      It looks like the Post in some parts of Europe does not include Australia at the moment

      It is nice to have the mini, however it is not a must


      Good Luck with the sales.. I noticed you listed several miniatures





  6. Hello 1812. During more than 500 years the Order of the Elephant have been awarded appr. 800 times. The Elephant have changed during that period from an Elephant in Gold without the tower and morian to the type you'll find today. The original statutes have been lost so we don't know exactly why the Elephant were chosen, but it is generally accepted that the Elephant were a symbol of strength and wisdom. I hope this helps. /Lars
  7. Nick, thanks for your comment, basically as I assumed. 1812, they are mine, but not a major financial loss, they came to me with some other items. /Lars
  8. As these are unknown to me I'd be happy to understand if this is pure crap or rare excellent items? Regards, Lars And this one as well (they shouldn't belong together) :
  9. I have a question relating to what I believe is a French Red Cross jeton. It may be the wrong section, but this resembles one of the many French Red Cross jetons I have seen. It's somewhat similar in design to others I have seen and many of these were named to the recipient in the same way. But as it is named to a quite famous nurse, miss Edith Cavell, I'm wondering if it's actually a jeton awarded to her or some kind of commemorative jeton sold in her name to raise money for something? Would anybody in here know? Miss Edith Cavell is quite famous, the following is just copi
  10. Hi Andres, thanks for the video and info, this makes sense, now I hope to understand weather this was some kind of official award or more a family or comrades gift to someone. A few years ago another Cross of Liberty memorabilia was offered at a Swedish auction, it became quite expensive so it didn't went my way, but here's a picture!
  11. Linas, this is indeed Danish. It's a medal given to those (don't know the english word) motorized people who brings info forth and back, primary within the home guard, but not limited to that. Here's the statutes. The older examples would have Silver marks on the reverse, so I suspect yours is a newer one. It's not an official medal. Regards, Lars

  13. Saw this link in a Facebook group, it may interest some in here, seems to be organized fraud! It's an article regarding fake MC's in quantities. https://www.derbytelegraph.co.uk/news/derby-news/derby-fraudster-made-thousands-selling-4208225
  14. Rusty, I have checked the two miniatures and there's no marks on the reverse, but both are marked on the ring. Unfortunately with so small marks that I cannot read them even with a very good magnifier. Lars
