  1. Thank you for that much appreciated information Micke. Fint som snus. January 1 1947 it is. I had made the assumption previously that the change to the ribbon (as you explained) was done when the Swedes assumed "control" of the insignia of their order. But, I had also assumed that the eagle replacement was an artistic interpretation of the "Vasa sheaves". Perhaps vases/Vasa is a translation issue? Thank you again for taking the time to reply! G.
  2. Colleagues, Is it known when the distinctive insignia of the order was instituted? Was it in 1920 when the commandery was set up, or in 1946 when they seperated from the Bailiwick of Brandenburg? Thank you for any information.

Is it known what the different locations and style of marking (or lack thereof) indicate regarding time frames of the minting, or the award of the medal? Thank you in advance for your h
  4. I never gave the size of the swastika much thought....i.e. assumed it was nothing more than a design/balance consideration. I have however, always been intrigued by the fact that the eagles on the badges of the Kriegsmarine are facing to their right. I am no expert in heraldry, but I believe that right facing attitude is termed "dexter" (as opposed to "sinister" ....to the left). I believe "dexter" points or leads more toward the "honorable" than the sinister. The customs and rules of heraldry are complex, subtle, and like most things, regional variations exist. I certainly have no way

  6. All presented are pleasing, each in their own way... I am a little worried however, about this talk of flogging..... I can't help but remember the quote "....rum, sodomy, and the lash"! G.
