  1. The Netherlands Order of Oranje-Nassau was instituted on 4 april 1892. After King William III died in 1890, Luxembourg was split from the Dutch crown because a woman now became Queen of the Netherlands. With Salic law applying in Luxembourg, a distant relative of Wilhelmina, the new Dutch Queen, became the new Grand Duke of Luxembourg. The Order of the Oaken Crown, instituted for Luxembourg by King William II in 1841, was now no longer available for use in the Netherlands, so a new lower order (after the Order of the Netherlands Lion) was needed. This led to the creation of the Order of Oranje-Nassau, named after the Netherlands Royal House. Today, it has 6 grades: Grand Cross, Grand Officer, Commander, Officer, Knight, and Member.
  2. Does any of you gentlemen know what kind of medal this is?
  3. Hi, I am enclosing a picture of the Dutch TMPT cross. It is an official Dutch medal since 1952. TMPT means: Two days Military Physical Endurance Trials (in Dutch: Tweedaagse Militaire Prestatie Tocht). When you pass the trials at the end of day 2 you are awarded this cross. The organiser of the trials and the issuer of this cross is the Dutch Reserve Officers Association (KVNRO). I am looking for fellow collectors with this cross in their collection. If you do, please post a nice detailed picture of it of the front and back. At the moment i am studying this cross, the variations, the different makers and its history. FYI. The first crossed were issued in the Netherlands in 1936 till 1939. In 1940 and 1941 a Netherlands East Indies version of te trials were held. After WW2 in 1955 the trials were restarted till now. Once a year the trials are held. The picture i enclose is a 1937 version from my own collection. Thanks in advance. Herman
  4. I am trying to replace the medals that were once on a British officers post-WW2 uniform. I have been able to track down everything except the Order of Oranje-Nassau 5th class (knight) with swords. The few examples of the order I have seen are the civilian variety. Is there a company in the Netherlands that produces a quality reproduction? Thank you for your help, Edmund
  5. Gentlemen, I have this miniature group. It is rumored it belonged to the Norwegian ambassador to The Netherlands. I'm trying to find his name, but so far there are too many possible names. However, I guess being awarded the grand cross of both order of Orange Nassau and House of Orange is quite uncommon. I hardly ever see the grand cross of the Order of the House of Orange anywhere. So is there any Dutch members here with a list of Norwegian recipients of the grand cross of the Order of the House of Orange? If we find a handful of names, I can cross check it with awards of the commander grade of Order of. St. Olav, and we should have a winner. Thanks in advance for any answers.
  6. Hi Gents, I got a German medal bar which contains a Silver Medal of Honour from the Order of the House of Orange. My question is, do there exist rolls with the names from German recipients? My hope is, that it is possible to identify the former owner with the help from forum members. Eyery help appreciated. Kind regards Andreas
  7. Hallo Gentlemen, Just arrived into Transylvania direct from Jacky in Holland. My first Dutch piece. Dutch Military Sports Badge, era?? A Wreath with crossed swords with a styleized blue triangle, which I have been told denotes swimming, any more info gratefuly appreciated. Measures: 44mm in height and 44mm at the widest point (Sword handle to Sword tip), the rear has a pin broach fastening. Kevin in Deva
  8. Could anyone tell me what a complete and cased commanders cross of the Order of Orange Nassau is worth please? I can't find anything on the net... Sorry but I don't have pictures for the momment. cheers |<ris
  9. Hi Gents, is this a Dutch gift brooch? Every help appreciated. Kind regards Andreas
  10. I have a knights order of Orange Nassau where I would like to know the age of. I have looked around but sadly there is no information on the types of medals that have been made at what time. I have not seen a similar crown before, so I'm curious if someone else has (specifically the little round holes I have not seen like that before). Here are some photo's, I'm curious if someone has more information on it. Ramon San Francisco, California
  11. Please find attached two examples for 1. 20 years (1844 model) 2. 40 years (1866 model) The second piece was produced by the widow Moussault (Amsterdam). Given that it can only have been made between 1866 and 1869 there should not be too many around. Has anyone information about rarity and prices?
  12. Dear Sir I just got 4 medals but I don't know name and class of this medals please help me to identify all of medals Best Regards jthai
  13. This interesting bronze cross was created on 16 March 1944. Its central obverse medallion shows Queen Wilhelmina surrounded by the text "VOOR KRIJGSVERRICHTINGEN" (For war operations). The design stems from the earlier 1869 Expedition Cross and the reverse is plain but for the manufacturer's data (F.S.Inv Kon. Begeer Voorschoten). It was awarded for participation in general war operations and/or specific war actions which were recognized by small-lettered bars on the ribbon. In total 12 such bars were instituted, five for general operations and seven for specific actions. Several of the latter can be worn on one medal but only one bar for general operations is allowed per recipient. The general operations bars are : KRIJG TER ZEE 1940-1945 (War at Sea) OORLOGSVLUCHTEN 1940-1945 (War Flights) OORLOGSDIENST KOOPVAARDIJ / 1940-1945 (War Service, Merchant Navy) OORLOGSDIENST VISSERIJ / 1940-1945 (War Service, Fishery) KRIJG TE LAND 1940-1945 (War on Land) The special actions bars are : NEDERLAND MEI 1940 NEDERLANDSCH INDI? / 1941-1942 (Dutch East-India, now Indonesia), also found as NEDERLANDS-INDI? / 1941-1942 JAVAZEE 1941-1942 NOORD AFRIKA - ITALI? 1941-1942, changed on 6 January 1948 to MIDDELANDSE ZEE / 1940-1945 ARNHEM - NIJMEGEN / WALCHEREN 1944 NORMANDI? 1944 OOST-AZI? - ZUID-PACIFIC / 1942-1945 Does anyone have a picture of the NEDERLANDS-INDI? / 1941-1942 or the NOORD AFRIKA - ITALI? 1941-1942 bars to post here ? [attachmentid=26763]
  14. Could some one tell me what used to be in this box, please?
  15. Not sure if I am doing something wrong - posted this the other day but it seems to have disappeared. (I am on talewis@bigpond.com if I need to be told to do something better...) Trying to track down what the fourth medal in the Netherlands collection shown is.....I think the first three are: Officer of the Order of Orange Nassau 1892, (military) Long Service Medal (Officers) Mobilisation Cross 1914-1918 ​These are from a box of stuff a friend has, probably from an ancestor. His granddad's surname in the Netherlands was Van Holthe. The rest of the set seems to have some 1936 Olympics medallions, and there are many miscellaneous pieces. ​Help grateful received for an ignorant Aussie. Two pix attached. Tom
  16. Good Afternoon Everyone...... I have purchased a number of badges Dutch/Netherlands and French and I am looking for identification..... They are not in my field but just could not resist....... Thanks in advance...... Mike
  17. Does anyone recognise the second ribbon? It is maybe not dutch at all?
  18. It is certainly not official but definitely looks old. Does anyone know more about this piece?
  19. Hi, Can somebody help me with the value of this medal? Thank you.
  20. I have encountered one of these unusual medals on full ribbon in high grade gold construction with burnished highlights and can find no mention of what this means, or what the metal content is, who got this, not even a mention of other grades than silver existing...any ideas? Thanks for your help!
  21. Hi everyone! I've just started collecting Dutch awards and have acquired a Commemorative Stabilization Force 2001 (SFOR) Medal. After showing it to another collector/dealer, I was informed that it was a copy! The person selling it said it was an original. I have included a photo of was I was told was an original along side mine. I can see some variations in them, but mine is very well made and not cast (stamped). Can anyone shed any light on this or throw their opinions in? If it is a copy, I am going to let the seller know, but I would like to know as much as I can first... Thank you all in advance! Kindest regards, Jason
  22. Dear all, I have been asked about this Dutch Medal which in many ways has similar obverse to the 1959 NSF proficiency medal. Is this an earlier incarnation of the NSF award. Thanks in advance. Paulhttp://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_11_2013/post-3085-0-06589500-1384519500.jpghttp://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_11_2013/post-3085-0-67722500-1384519527.jpg
  23. Group of Arnold Marc Gorter (1866-1933), Painter of the East-Netherlands Landscape http://dolphy.home.xs4all.nl/AMG/EnglishContents.html “The Queen of the Netherlands, Wilhelmina, took up painting round 1919 and wanted to invite a real landscapist as a tutor or as companion painter. Knowing Gorter from her yearly visits to the Arti-exhibitions and having bought one of his paintings already in 1913, she thought of him. In 1921 Gorter was invited to her countryside palace at Apeldoorn to paint the autumn colours together. The next year an invitation followed to accompany Wilhelmina and members of the court on a two-month cruise along Norway's coast, to go painting there.” His distinctions: Bavaria, Order of St. Michael http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_St._Michael_(Bavaria) IV. class (2 March 1910) IV. class with crown (11 April 1914) Netherlands, Order of Orange-Nassau http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_Orange-Nassau Officer (24 August 1928) Italy, Order of the Crown of Italy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_the_Crown_of_Italy Officer (5 November 1912) Belgium, Order of the Crown http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_the_Crown_(Belgium) Knight (18 November 1912) The group contains all certificates.
  24. Hello everybody, We're not there yet but we're getting there... Guldenbookprojecthttp://www.tenboome.webruimtehosting.net/guldenboek/Guldenboekprojecttotaal/ (The site's in English, Dutch and French by the way) So far we have data on 72396 individual Belgian soldiers who survived WWI. The data include name (obviously), place of residence (in the 30's), rank, unit served in, time spent at the front, wound stripes, possibly even a picture .. What some of you might perhaps will not now is that not all info is shown on the website... but available on request to the administrator of the site (or myself)... more particularly the medal entitlement of the individual soldiers is also available.. including foreign awards granted... For exemple I'll give you the number of INDIVIDUAL recipients of 4 British awards that we have information on. DSO: # 32 DCM: # 67 MM: # 80 MC: # 117 We could do the same for French awards, Russian etc... Perhaps the site might come in handy for phaleristic research as well, next to the use for genealogical and local-history research. cheers
