  1. In another forum far far away...... I began a thread that was somewhat successful. One of my English cousins thought it might be fun to do a similar thread here. Basically, it's an opportunity to "showcase" your favorite medals, crosses, swords, daggers, guns, whatever, in an artistic light. To get an idea of what I'm talking about, I think one of the best should start us off....... Dave B., where are you???
  2. There are the big parades... and the small ones.... Lets see yours....
  3. So, I'm back from the SOS where I saw a number of EK collectors and picked up a handful of nice things; including a sweet EK1 related to the fighting in the Ukraine in 1916 (I will post it at a later time). But, I did see this which was quite unique. It's an EK filled with EKs. It was made to look old (there were dust bunnies inside), and may have been to a certain extent. Most of the EKs looked good, but an EK specialist (someone who can easily read them just by looking at their obverse) informed me that there were fakes present. So, who really knows when it was made. Nevertheless, it was interesting. I saw it early in the show and then didn't see it again. Maybe someone bought it?
  4. Here are a few interesting minis for your viewing pleasure, representing the FP War, WWI and WWII. Note the mini EK on the Saxon bar is upside down. It's really not the mini that is wrong, its the ribbon. I could switch it but the tabs on the reverse look like they have been that way for a long time. So, I leave it alone - I wonder of the original wearer noticed! Does anyone have any other 1939 examples to show? Note this one is quite unlike the earlier ones. These are quite unusual. I showed it to Rick L. way back in the day and he approved.
  5. Many of you know him.... now he has some breathing space after getting his GREAT book out on the Iron Cross Documents 1939-45... he has joined us here to help in the Iron Cross forum. Welcome!! :-)
  6. So... I am on the edge of my seat... What do you guys think this book will bring? I have high hopes. I am not sure how much 1813, 1870 or 1914 there is, but i am hoping for a good 1914 bit... Has anyone any info further than the flyer?? best Chris
  7. There has been much debate in the past as to whether or not Field Surgeons could make recommendations for awards of the EK2 based on WOUNDS ALONE, with no account taken of bravery or leadership in the field. These documents say that they could !!
  8. Looking through the period Photos, Postcards etc. etc... and comparing to 1870 and 39-45,.... I am of the opinion (humble as always) that the iron Cross had its heyday in the 14-18 war. The 1870 EK was awarded after the war, great for those who got it, but by that time many of the recipients were back in civilian clothes, or soon to be... in 39-45 the EK still had a value, but there were so many other awards that were bigger eye catchers... Assault badges, close combat badges, tank destructor badges etc. etc... when you look at a WW2 photo the EK2 ribbon, or even the EK1 is not neccesarily "The" award on a soldiers chest... a silver Close Comabt clasp is light years ahead... When you compare WW2 postcards to WW1 postcards... you already see the trend... You can collect WW1 postcards with EK symbolism for years and years... and still not reach the end... with WW2 cards your collection would be complete in a few weeks. IMHO it is because the EK was basically the only thing to decorate the soldiers chest in WW1, until the wound badge came along. It was a stand alone symbol for being a good soldier... there was no competition to it... and as a result, the EK was king. What do you guys think?
  9. Gentlemen: Please provide information as to why ribbons of the Iron Cross 2nd Class, & certain other decorations (i.e. Ostfront Medaille), were traditionally worn on the tunic's second button hole rather than displayed on a "rack" over the left breast pocket as are other ribbons. Is Germany the only nation to adopt this tradition? When & where did this practice originate? Thank you. Regards, John
  10. Guys, This was all together today, I am unclear if it is one family or not, all provenace lost as it was in with scrap silver. Kind of like the patriotic pins. The EK 1914 appears to be stamped with a 6/9 or a G (see microsope pic). The 39 is unmarked the luftschutz is ring stamped 60. Jock:)
  11. Got this in wittmann antique militaria on the net would appreciate to know if its genuine thankshttp://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_03_2013/post-15376-0-73373200-1363642974.jpghttp://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_03_2013/post-15376-0-35514200-1363643060.jpghttp://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_03_2013/post-15376-0-31513900-1363643108.jpg
  12. There is a great article in this months issue that discusses whether the award of the EK was cheapened during WW1. It is written by our very own Chris Boonzaier. Well done Chris. I think we have touched on the subject here but Chris actually uses facts and figures to support his argument.
  13. I love this little piece. It's my favorite 1914 Iron Cross trinket:
  14. I see that the Harald Geissler book was re printed in 2011... And with 1 700 photos and 600 plus pages... I will have to wait to next month to get it, but it sounds like a really big deal.... Does anyone have it? How well are WW1 docs covered? Thanks Chris
