  11. Hi all, Can someone identify this order. Order made by Godet & Sohn, Berlin.
  12. Thank you Paul, I stopped collecting German medals long time ago, but ones collector, always collector. Just couldn't pass by a good deal.
  13. Thank you for your reply. I have been told it was Franco-Prussian war period piece. But if it's earlier decoration it is even better. Do you have information on how many Knight orders were issued during that period.
  14. One of the early awards, probably 1870-1871. Order shows some heavy wear on the bottom portion of the front medallion. It looks like recipient awarded with this order proudly wear it for a long time. Does anybody have any information on number of SHO awarded during Franco-Prussian war.
  15. WOW! That was fast. Thank you very much for information. I am collecting paintings on Franco-Prussian war and based on general awards he took part in Franco-Prussian war. But I had no idea who he were, not until now. With kind regards, Glenn
