  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) 😉
  5. Hi,

      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 copied from the net: Edith Cavell was a British nurse and humanitarian. She entered the nursing profession at the age of 20 and was appointed matron of the Berkendael Medical Institute in Brussels, Belgium, in 1907. During her brief career in Belgium, she succeeded in modernizing the standard of Belgian nursing. When the Germans occupied Belgium at the start of World War I, Cavell joined the Red Cross, and the Berkendael Institute was subsequently converted into a hospital for wounded soldiers of all nationalities.1 Cavell is credited with helping over 200 captured Allied soldiers escape from German-occupied Belgium to neutral Holland during the war. She is quoted as saying, “I can't stop while there are lives to be saved.”2 Her strong Anglican beliefs led her to assist all soldiers who needed help on both sides of the war. For personally aiding in the escape of these soldiers, Cavell was arrested on August 5, 1915, by local German authorities and was later executed by firing squad.1 Her execution led to worldwide sympathetic press coverage—most notably in Britain and the United States, which had not yet entered the war. Her death was mourned by the British and US population and persuaded many to support the war effort.
  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
