  1. Here is another small contribution... - war honor medal Lippe-Detmold for NC - house-order 4th class div. A Lippe-Detmold (made by C.F. Zimmermann, late piece)
  2. 🤩 Nice ribbonbar...would fit exactly in my collection! On his revers for the LDH4 with swords Robert Franz Strehle noted in the column "other awards and orders" on 12th September 1917: E.K.2 Pr.K.O.4 Bayr.Mil.Verd.Ord. 4 m. Schw. Würtb. Ritterkr. I Kl. m. Schw. des Friedr.Ord. Lipp.Kr.Verd.Kr. Hamb.Hanseaten Kr. Hess.Kr.Ehrenzeichen Regards Roman
  3. A small correction: Brünnecke is not waering the LH4 but the SLH4 (which he got on 11th February 1908).
  4. Just discovered this nice topic, where I can contribute something, I got some time ago. Although the document for war merit cross for heroic deeds Lippe-Detmold is in a quite poor condition, I still like it very much. Fritz Kleineges was Wachtmeister der Haubitzen-Batterie des Sturmbat. Rohr and got this war merit cross for defeating an incoming attack. He was wounded twice, but survived the war. A few of his awards also survived....only the IC 2nd class was missing (I got everything directly from the family). Regards Roman
  5. I´m really pleased you liked my choice of photos. Here are some more...off the record: 16) Prince Leopold IV in between some officials (mainly from Austria according to their medalbars) The three marked names are A) Georg Freiherr von Eppstein ( personal friend of the prince and official in the cabinet of Lippe-Detmold) B) Oldwig von Natzmer ("Fluegeladjudant" of prince Leopold IV.) C) von Loos ("Oberhofmarschall" in Detmold) 17) Prince Leopold IV. at the headquarters of the VII.AOK 18) Prince Leopold IV. in between the professors of the university Erlangen (where he got academic honors) 19) Prince Leopold IV in between his family (dated christmas 1918) Hope you like it, too... Regards Roman
  6.

Regards Roman
  7. Yes, I saw the uniform already last year during a visit in Hamburg....of course, it´s "nice to have", but the price Weitze is asking, clearly blocks me from even thinking about buying it. Weitze also has some other nice Lippe stuff in his shop...like the miniature chain of the Prince, which I also had in my hands. But again the prices were not acceptable at all. By the way, here is another picture of the Prince (with Princess Bertha zur Lippe-Detmold), where he is also wearing this uniform. Exactly this picture was also used in the local newspaper announcing his proclamation of becoming the ruling Prince of Lippe-Detmold in 1901. Both shown things are in my collection and my property.
  8. I just realized, that I forgot to provide you with the ultimate evidence, that the ribbonbar was worn by Prince Leopold IV. In the meantime I got the attached photos with exactly this ribbonbar 🙂
  9. Here is one, I bought and sold recently... The IC 1st class was sold before I got it and there were also a WW2 war merit cross with swords 2nd and 1st class, most likely belonging to this group. Unfortunately there was no name coming with this group.
  10. Uppps, you should have told me before...these pieces came originally from me :-) I got a few from an old jewelry inventory....all were unawarded and never unpacked before in mint condition.
  11. Hmmm...I don´t like this pinback-cross...it doesn´t look like proven original ones.
  12. Just recognized, that I forgot to provide the evidence :-) Here is Eichhorst´s role-entry....
