    I am a collector of the Bavarian MMJO and MVM/TKM. I collect groups, individual awards, documents, cases, antique ribbons, miniatures, and recipient photographs. I am always interested in new items for my collection.

  1. Hello ArHo, Thank you for sharing this fantastic photo. It shows the details of the corduroy uniform material very nicely. Most photographs do not have enough focus/resolution to show these details. Best regards,
  2. Hello again Chris, Although not very impressive visually, this is piece from my collection is rather scarce too. I would like to find more, but they do not come up very often. Best regards,
  3. Hello Chris, Congratulations! This is my favorite regiment and the only one that I collect shoulder boards/epaulettes of. As you know, this variation was only used for a short period of time, and the Feldgrau (subdued) version is seldom seen. I know that these were not inexpensive (I had my eye on them for awhile too). I am glad that they went to a good home! Best regards,
  4. Hello Peter, I can't really comment on originality based upon what I presently see. However, it looks like there may be a line around the center of the edge. This is usually indicative of a piece being a galvano or possibly a cast copy. Could you provide better photos of the edge? Thank you,
  5. Hello Nicolas, Thank you for sharing these very nice ribbon bars. The first two ribbons (EKII and SA3bX) on the upper field ribbon bar appear to be from the woven-together type ribbon stock for buttonhole wear. An interesting combination. Best regards,
  6. Hello Chris, Congratulations! A great photo of Silber TKM recipient Gustav Fischer k. b. R.I.R. 8 That unit was involved in a lot of action during the War. Best regards,
  7. A very nice painting Laurentius. It is nice to see that it was finally purchased by someone who appreciates it. Unfortunately, I do not think that it would be possible to identify the recipient as the award combination shown in the painting, although scarce, was not unique. Perhaps the auction house might know. They may have obtained it from the family, but the family didn't want the name published. It might be worth asking them. Best regards,
  8. Congratulations Chris! A very nice photo of Ritter von Steiner. I would love to see the other photos too. Best regards,
  9. Hello GMU, This case (and what is in it) is my personal favorite! Congratulations regarding owning such a beautiful and historically significant item. Best regards,
  10. Servus Waldo, Congratulations regarding these beautiful and very rare crosses and cases. Thank you for sharing them with us! MfG,
  11. Hello Chris, Here is an old article about the helmet: https://www.freundeskreis-armeemuseum.de/publikationen/ View "Kaskett 2" at the bottom and then "Ein Helm mit Geschichte" by Walter Seibold. MfG,
  12. Hello Chris, Thank you for this harrowing and well-written story of combat. I can't help but think of the sad end of Lt. d. Res. Zeiglwalner a.d. After all that he survived, to end up drowned in a canal. HIs family must have been devastated. I am glad that you were able to obtain these items and document the history of this Officer. Best regards,
  13. Hello Chris, Thank you for pointing out this wonderful tunic. If I remember correctly, Ritter von Scherf's large medal bar with his MMJO RK was on display at the Bavarian Army Museum. Good luck with your "big buy". I can't wait to see what you are getting if this is what you are passing up. Best regards,
  14. A super article Chris! Thank you for all of your years of research, and your patience in obtaining these rare items. This area of collecting is not covered anywhere else. Well done.
  15. Hello Chris, This is in Ingolstadt perhaps? The fellow was not too slim, so K. P. Rupprecht is out. It could have belonged to Ludwig III or K. P. Leopold, but I can't narrow it down further. Now stop with this silliness and show us Leibregiment uniform photos! :-) Best regards,
