    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.

    A Prussian miniature chain of Aviation interest, in a much better quality than normally seen. An Iron Cross (marked 800), a Hindenburg Cross, a Wound badge in Silver (marked 900) and a Observer badge (marked 800). Price is 225 euro plus postage, a bank transfer is expected within Europe.


  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. Hi Rusty & Owain. If you look at my alias in here it have some resemblance with said eBay seller, so ... Yes, I'm the seller, and as the two miniatures remainded unsold on the .com site they are currently on the French eBay site. I have much too many miniatures in my collection (2000+ items) so I'm slowly sorting items out that I feel are not essential. I ended up with four of these and decided I only need two. These are the two I'll keep for the moment allthough I had some doubt with the light blue one. And it is correct that the ribbon moved from one miniature to another, so mystery solved 😉 Owain, if these remains unsold once again we can allways talk in here 😉 /Lars
  5. It's allways better to get two replys than none 😉
  6. Not Russian, a Serbian Balkan Wars Commemorative Cross.
  7. Michael, it's a miniature, that's why it isn't made like the full size award, I have a few, different makers, but the same construction. Gordon, if you buy the lot and don't need this you could think of me as I don't have this maker 😉
  8. Hi Gordon. This has absolutely nothing to do with Italy, it's The Badge of Honour of the Danish Reserve Officer's Organization. Instituted 27.4.1950 under the reign of King Frederik IX. Hope this helps? Regards, Lars
  9. Don't know what you're looking for, but it's a relatively common item so why would you go for an item with most gilding worn off, several enamel damages and a partly broken suspension? If you compare their price it's not priced accordingly in my opinion, several much better examples have been sold at auction at appr. the same price.
  10. When I was 15 back in 1976 he appeared in a Danish magazine which had an article about him and his collection. I had gained some interest in collecting Orders & Medals but had no clue of where to go and find these items. The article made it clear that he lived in the area where I grew up, so I took a phonebook (yes, those were the times) and found out that there were 6 people living in my area by that name. Then I took my bicycle and went from address to address, rang the doorbell and asked the simple question "Do your husband collects Orders?". At the third address I got a "Ahh, yes, why" and after having explained myself I was invited in. Kai Meyer got me started, we became friends and I have spend many many hours in that basement. I have really learned alot from him, he took me under his wings and he explained carefully what to look for, tricks and hints, and all that stuff. Today I have a quite extensive collection of miniature decorations, the very first miniature I got was bought from him at a very resonnable price, this one: The picture you have must have been from the 1960ies, when I got to know him he had a much larger collection. He died many years ago and his collection is sold, but you will still see items from his collection appearing in various auctions with a proper reference, interesting enough I spotted this one in a French auction some months ago: This is a plate with the Swedish Order of the North Star, still mounted on the plate from his celler, if you look at the picture you can see that his entire collection was mounted this way, plate by plate. Some older collectors would find him a bit controvercy, but that's another story. Hope this helps, Lars
  11. Hi Graf. This was more than helpful and most appreciated, exactly what I was hoping for. I'm pretty sure I have a red ribbon so I can complete this award. Thanks a lot, regards, Lars
  12. Hello Graf. Just got this little medal, I was wondering if it's a medal or a jeton, but looking at the scan of this book it could suggest that it's actually an awarded medal. As I assume you can read this I'd like to ask if you can give a little more info about this as I cannot find any info on the net? Regards, Lars
  13. Actually, if you give it some thoughts it's not that strange. A Royal person or a high ranking person like a prime minister or general would need a miniature group on a frequest basis and all would have at least one miniature group (many would have several), whereas a court servant would not need a miniature group in his civil life at any occations (generally speaking). When on official duty they would wear their full size awards! That's why you do see the miniature Red and Pale Blue badges whereas the Dark Blue miniature is rarer seen!
  14. Yes, both are in my collection, apart from these I've only seen perhaps 2-3 on auctions in the past 30 years. You may see similar examples in the Royal Castle Collection in Stockholm if the chains (Oscar II etc) is still on display. Interesting enough it took me 20 years to find a dark blue example whereas the pale blue can be found in quantities.
