  1. Thanks all for participating in these topic. Regards, Jannis.
  2. Please, can you show me the characteristics . Thanks. Regards,Jannis.
  3. Sorry if I say it, but you're wrong it's no cast, probably you were hasty. Take a closer look at the cross. Regards, Jannis.
  4. You are right, in spite of my intensive search, in forums and in books, have not found any information. Right, wrong title not a Freikorps,from the motto can be a Regiments Erinnerungskreuz . I have found, at various sources, 1st class cross with various attachments and the placement of the manufacturer's stamp in different positions. On all crosses the manufacturer's stamp is identical. IMO, that means different stamps have been used. It is more fitting the are Muster Kreuze pattern crosses than fakes-fantasy pieces. Why should one faker use several stamps? It's just my personal opinion with no evidence. Thank you very much ,for your time and opinion. Regards,Jannis.
  5. Hello. I know Porre81 and his do, but the cross is not from him. In my cross the silver plating is "frosted" and the fastenings for the band ring is different than from Porre81. IMO Porre81 sells, everything he finds ,mostly copys, but also manufacturer stocks. I add photo to compare. Thanks. Regards, Jannis.
  6. Hello. New addition of a cross. On the front side it says "1914 Allezeit Bereit 1.Reserve Kompanie" On the back the manufacturer has the stamp "FLECK & SOHN HAMBURG 3 GES Gesch" There are crosses 1st and 2nd class. My cross is 2nd class and the silver plating is "frosted". I have not found any information whether they have ever been worn-awarted. IMO, they are from manufacturer stock who are never awarted. I am very grateful for any information. Thanks. Regards, Jannis
  7. Great,thank you very very much,yes this make a sense. Regards,Jannis.
  8. Hello. Please, your opinion is needed. Can someone tell me whether it is original or not. Is the order correct, which one can be the fourth,I think it is blurred red-yellow-red ? Can this be? If so, which one is it. Thanks,every opinions and comments are welcame. Regards, Jannis.
  9. Hello Gordon. The book is in greek was printed in 2012 and had an edition of 500 pieces. The title is "Το Ταγμα Των Ορθοδοξων Σταυροφορων Του Παναγιου Ταφου" by M.G. Barbounis -P.D. Rizopoulos. Has been out of stock for a long time. But that's not a problem, I can scan the book and email it to you. Because, I'm for work, out of my home, until the end of next week, I can only do that next weekend. I contacted the author about the difference of the Emedals bagdes, let's see what he will answer. I found on the web an interesting variation of the Italian manufacturer S.Johnson. Regads, Jannis.

  11. Hello from Gordon. I found and bought the book and contacted the author. His answer: "All classes of the badge are for the neck and as you will see in the appendix of my book, yours is the Knights cross (Cross with crown). The ribbon is not original,in the photos its color appears as orange and not red. The cross is engraved with the degrees of silver (800) and the initials of Switzerland (CH). If you do not have the box to be sure who exactly is the manufacturer, only assumptions can be made. I guess it may be HUGENIN or LE LOCLE. Era before 1940." The classes are: Grand Cross (the cross on the neck, the star and the badge on the shoulder strap). Knight's cross with star (Cross with laurels and crown) Knight's cross (Cross with laurels and crown) Knights (Cross with crown) Crusaders (Cross without crown) Thanks again for your interest and help. Regards,Jannis.
