  1. Hello, I' ve got this Serbian war medal and I wonder, what that bars on the ribbon might be. Can anybody help? Best, Daniel
  2. Hello Friends, I have got some medals where I need help. I know the war cross, the Cuba, Africa and Carraca medal. But what are the other two? Best Daniel
  3. One from me 🙂 wirklicher geheimer Kriegsrat Ernst Grützmacher, Department chief in the prussian War Ministry. how to translate his rank?? Substantive privy war councillor? civil equivalent to a Major General best Daniel
  4. The bar makes no sense at all. I would consider it as ... phantasy piece. A General Honor decoration with crown does not go along with a Johanniter. General Honor dec - NCO-type, Johanniter - at least Captain. nonono... So it must be a Red Eagle Grand Cross. But there was no holder of a Red Eagle GK with crown who had previously another Prussian Order with swords on white ribbon, and a Johanniter. My 2 cent, I would advice any collector of medal bars, mini chains and ribbon bars to invest some money in sources like ranklists and court and state handbooks. That plain necessary to learn what combos are likely, possible, common, or - like this - fraud. Greetings Daniel
  5. Hi Nicolas, It's not an uncommon Combo, but I would bet of Arthur Gaede, born 1881, 1914 Hptm in IR 42, later LIR 78, retired as Major. Greetings Daniel
  6. The Crown Order is quite simpel. Start with the Red Eagle, thats complicated 🙂 Greetings Danieö
  7. My friend just told me, this design is quite well known and one of the more common designs of the 1st pattern 39 badge, but the Maker is still a mystery. Greetings Daniel
  8. Hey John, I know a handful distinctive designs but far away from everything. But I have a guy who I can ask. Greetings Daniel
  9. good question, there were no holders of Karl Friedrich AND a LDH4 with swords, so I am fairly sure, this might be a silver merit medal to a guy later promoted to Lt. What makes me wonder is the fact the no Lippe War merit cross is there. Awards of the House Order without a previous War merit cross did happen, but quite rarely. Greetings Daniel
  10. born 10.05.1879 in Sigmaringen-Hohenzollern- that explains his Hohenzollern 3rd class with swords, retired after WW1 as Captain. Most likely too young for a character bump to Major. His Lippe 4th class 1st Abt. was awarded 12.09.1917 Can check some other award dates as well later. Greetings Daniel
  11. Sehr schön! Robert Strehle, geb. 1879 1914 Hauptmann Feuerwerkslaboratorium Siegburg, later at the WUMBA - Weapons and Ammunitions office. These rear area guys were usually extraordinary good decorated...as you can see. Your guess is right, Crown 4 on the shorter bar. Later most likely he did just wear wartime stuff. Greetings Daniel
