  1. Hi! What are your favorite Imperial militaria items? Which is prettier? Is that you like for aesthetic relationship, meaning and affordable price? Please opinions!
  2. This one was established on December 2, 1968. It has five classes Grand Cordon Grand Officier Commandeur Officier Chevalier Order had military and civilian division for services to the state. Swords are added to the orders that are issued for military service. This is how Grand Cordon from P. De Greef, Bruxelles from my collection looks like Badge Obverse
  3. Hallo, wir freuen uns über jeder Deutscher muttersprachler hier in "Imperial German". Viele sind nur Leser, ist selbstverständlich dass Sprache manchmal ein Hinderniss ist. Dafür würde ich gerne anbieten, dass Man auch auf Denglish oder Deutsch antworten/posten kann. Irgendwie wird mann sich verständigen... es gibt genug Mitglieder die bereit sind die wichtige Teile zu übersetzen. MfG Chris
  4. Here's another new acquisition , in keeping with my looking for the "odd ball" items ...I have not had enough time to research it properly but , I "Googled" the name and found a Family member in Germany ..so I called. The older Woman that answered didn't speak English and ..I don't speak German but , she did have a great sense of Humor ..between the 2 of us trying to understand each other , it sounded like a skit from Monty Python. She did give me a few more leads (between the 2 of us laughing!)Anyway ...it's a great Passport and I thought I'd share it with you since we never really see these that often.
  5. The bikers of the Forces, riding the dust, mud, snow, but FREE! Some pics from my collection.
  6. Hi guys, After almost 5 years out of the collecting world i want to turn back, in the past i used to concetrate my collecting interest on medal bars and formed a very tiny nucleus of collection, then by studies i decide to quit the hobby. On those days i made a kind of "dream list" decorations to add someday to my collection and now that i have a kind of job that permits me to get back to collecting world im searching some basic information about this orders. Lets start with the "Dream List": 1.The Order of the Zähringer Lion ( lower grade - Kinght's cross 2nd Class) 2.Red Eagle Order (lower grade - 4th Class) 3. House Order of Hohenzollern ( lower grade - Silver Merit Cross?? ( please if wrong correct me) ) 4. Prussia Crown Order (lower grade - 4th class) 5. Iron cross from 1870 or 1813 As im starting im not pointing to the high grades of this awards (maybe in a future i will be able to spend more money on collecting and afford the higher grades) so i have some questions and kindly ask for your help me on this: Where i can find technical information about the fabbrication of this orders. How much can cost the lower grades of this orders ( i know that there are a lot of variations and factors that can condition the prices but i want to have an idea of a medium cost to see how much i can put apart to buy it). Also i kindly ask if possible that you people can reccomend me a trusful dealer or dealers to buy this kind of decorations(i was surfing the web searching on some dealers but i dont know his reputation so i prefer to hear from you some sugests). Thanks a lot by the help and I ask to forgive me if im asking so much. Cordial Greetings, Carlos
  7. As I'm sure alot of you already know a German Signature Database was set up approximately 7 months ago ( http://gmic.co.uk/index.php/forum/268-germany-signature-database/ ). Since then it has had over 420 seperate entries, and even more if those that have been posted in the 'Unknown' sections are taken into account. The accumulated 'Views' for the section as a whole runs into the many thousands and this has all been down to the generosity of members sharing what they have and to who I would like to express a big Thank You. As a constant work in progress there is always room for more so if anyone has an original signature in their collection that they know the identity of be it on a citation, in a soldbuch or a book dedication etc, it is from the relevant period and you are happy to share then your additions are very much welcome, be they a well known official or a lowly Kompanie-Chef. The Guidelines give an indication of what is (and is not) required and also shows how to sort the database in alphabetical order for those that are unaware of how to do so, and following a suggestion from a fellow member there is also a Master Index so you can see at a simple glance who is already in the database. As always, suggestions are always welcome. Thank you. KEViN/Hucks
  8. A citation type that has many variations are those for the KvK & KvM and are also a great resource for signatures. Feel free to show any that you have. I will get the ball rollong with the following examples... The first is for the KvK II Kl mit Schwertern and awarded to a member of a RAD unit and it bears the signature of Generalfeldmarschall von Kluge. The second is also for the KvK II Kl mit Schwertern and awarded to a soldier in a transport unit in Greece (1941) and it also bears the signature of a Generalfeldmarschall, in this case Wilhelm List.
  9. There are many variants of citations for Sports Awards from the more formal German Horseman's & SA Sports Badge to the less formal unit-level sports day certificates. Here is an example of the latter for a member of 52 ID and signed by Lothar Rendulic and also the soldiers booklet/citation for the Deutsches-Reichs-Sportsabzeichen in Bronze...
  10. Printed signature of Transport Minister Julius Dorpmuller on a Blockade Breaker award certificate. Dorpmuller was General manager of the Deutsche Reichsbahn Gesellschaft from 1926-45 and Reich Transport Minister from 1937-45.
  11. Keeping an eye on Sascha Woeschlers updates is a hobby of mine... I was fast enough to get myself a Ludvigsen .....
  12. from the same place as the globes, I got these two paintings. In fact only one was mentioned and showed in the catalog, the other one came with the same lot, but was not photographed. But I do like it even more then the marine.
  13. Shared courtesy of the Traveling Museum from a gathering back in 2011 when I was offline. In honor of the bicentennial of the siege of St. Sebastian beginning 17 July 1813-2013, meet Drummer Ludwig GOHLISCH of the 2nd Line Battalion, King's German Legion. Please note and correct in Mullen's transcription of the MGS Rolls that there is no final -e in Gohlisch's name. Bars-- Talavera, Busaco, Fuentes d'Onor, Ciudad Rodrigo, Salamanca, Vittoria, St. Sebastian, Nivelle, and Nive By the usual reckoning, there were 161 9 bars KGL MGS medals--144 other ranks/17 officers. But this battalion received 47/3--of which 6/1 are known to exist. You've previously been treated to the medal of Frederick Bode here at GMIC--made famous from the von heyden collection. With Gohlisch's medal, you will now have been treated to 30% of all 9 bars medals to this unit known to still exist. As a further point--of the 1,216 MGS Medals to former members of the KGL--only 11 went to drummers!
  14. This threat can include any finds coming from car booth sales, house clearings, auction's or fair's. To start with my flee market finds of past WE, including some militaria! cheers |<ris
  15. Just in is this official vehicle plaque for the 1933 Air Show held in Saxony. One of the first to be held after the coming to power of the Nazi Party, and organized by the Deutschen Luftsportverband (DLV), these Air Shows were not only used to show the latest in German aviation technology but to also raise funds for the Party and the covert recruitment of pilots for the clandestine Luftwaffe. Made of nickel silver and green enamel, the plaque was produced by Karl Wurster – Markneukirchen. Happy New Year to one and all.
  17. Hi Gents, I´m searching for informations about Ritterkreuzträger Karl Heinz Wilhelm Oberleutnant der Reserve und Kompaniechef 3./ Gren Rgt 46, RK awarded 31.03.1943. Schön wäre ein Foto mit Feldschnalle oder eine genaue Aufstellung seiner Auszeichnungen. Viele Grüße Andreas
  18. Hi all, a bit of advice if I may request, I have had the attached Commander class order of the white lion in my collection for a number of years. It appears completely authentic, but I've noticed on the few other examples I've seen that the Centre lion always appears silver or silvered, my copy does not have this, there is no sign that any silver finish has been lost or that there was any in the first place, the whole item appears a natural gilt, is this normal or do I have another clunker. There are no visible hallmarks that I can see. If genuine, any value?? attached images, my own and one borrowed from "Najafcoins" website just to show the differences, The first is from Najafcoins and the other two are my scans regards Alex K
  19. Guys, Not sure what to think of these, they were with the bag of Brit boots but these are clearly German in appearance? They don't look fun to wear!
  20. Hello Everyone, Having nearly finished EK equivalents for Junior Officers,I just need a Saxe-Meiningen Medaille "Für Verdienst im Krieg" mit Krone in Bronze not Zinc (Medal for Merit in War with Crown) if you have one..., I thought I would try a put together a wee collection of long service awards (not the Landwehr) from the Imperial German States. This is what I have so far...
  21. Hello readers. In 1945, between February 22 and April 19, 1945 word of mouth got around quickly in my home town of Rotenburg, northern Germany ( between Bremen and Hamburg ) that a British bomber had crashed in close proximity of the town. Of course this being of some considerable importance to us youth ( my age was 13 ) friends and I were on our way. No school for me because of enrollment in a Bremen school and having just returned from an evacuation program to Saxony where the bombardments of Dresden could be seen from a distance). Just a small distance from town the wreckage of a four-engined bomber was located in a field. The front area was burned out with the pilot and the flight engineer still in their seats, their clothing burned away but the bodies still whole. A little distance away a dead crewmember lay. No parachute and the tan/ yellowish flight suit slightly open with the blue RAF uniform quite visible underneath. The necktie worn struck me as odd. On impact his body had made a slight depression in the earth. Had he jumped or was he thrown from the plane before the plane hitting the ground? My memory is somewhat hazy but seems to tell me that the interior of the plane's fuselage contained another body? The rear turret was empty but the amount of ammunition visible was impressive. Our first guess of the plane's type was that it was a Lancaster which was the type of British bomber foeremost in our minds but then it could very well have been a Halifax. Shortly after my arrival on the scene German airforce personnel arrived from the near airfield and cleared the area from spectators. The whereabouts of the remaining three or four crew members are a mystery. Did they manage to escape the plane by parachute when it had difficulties? I am unable to be more precise as to the date.The time span given is from the date of my return home to the date of our hometown 's occupation after three days of fighting by British troops in April . My wife recalls the incident because of her family owning some property very near by but cannot give a better date. She having been located there throughout the war recollects day- time air battles including one during which the sky seemed filled with parachutes such were the losses. The reference book : " The Bomber Command War diaries, An Operational Reference Book 1939 - 1945 " by Martin Middlebrook and Chris Everitt gives a map containing the main Bomber Command's targets and also the location of the several British War Cemeteries located in Germany, in which so many of the fallen British aircrews found their final resting places. In one of them these dead crew members are possibly located. Bernhard H. Holst
  22. Hi all, Can someone tell me which class of this Order is that represented by the cross of this Order that is shown in the photos I have attached below ? Given the lack of the (Hawaiian) crown suspension and the lack of the 4 crowns between the arms of the cross, I assume that it can be the “”Medal of Honor, 1st (silver) “” (see : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Order_of_Kapiolani )of the Order of Kapiolani : Am I right ? How much is it rare ? How much it can cost ? Any help is greatly appreciated All the best Lilo
