  1. I have a simple question to which I can´t find simple answer. When I tested ribbons under UV light in the past, it was always quick and decisive: positive ribbons are modern fakes, negative ribbons have a chance to be original. It is always useful mainly with EK ribbons, where white on modern fakes brightly glows electric blue But what to think about ribbon where white (as a basic colour of the material) doesn't glow, but red stripes glow orange? It happened with 4-piece ribbon bar, where three ribbons (EK2, Kroneorden, Zentenarmedaille) are UV negative, but the last one (Turkish war medal) gives results mentioned above. Last ribbon shows no signs of being added lately, and it is sewn with same thread as all other ribbons. All ribbons are worn same way and to me it looks that the ribbon bar has correct hardware. Same thing hapenned to me in the past with 2er ribbon bar (EK2 and Hessian Tapferkeit), which looked very convincing with both ribbons heavily worn, and with white colour on Hessian medal absolutely UV negative - just red stripes were glowing orange. That time I deemed the bar as fake and forgot about it, but now I think it is worth question. Maybe it is silly question, but what do we test under UV lamp? UV-behaviour of material or of colours on it? Thanks in advance for any opinion.
  2. Hi all, I attach a photo which I admit I borrowed from another site as I find it interesting. It is Meinhard Rosenmuller, who whilst wearing a TR uniform, I believe he was a distinguished flyer duringWW1, all his awards and ribbon bar indicate imperial decorations. Can any medal bar experts identify the awards particularly on the bar? Any help appreciated regards Alex K

  6. Hello all, got this photo a couple of days ago. Can someone identify this tinnie / Badge? Looks like Winterhilfswerk - maybe?
  7. Gentlemen, I am looking for some help in identifying an Egyptian medal awarded to my wife's great grandfather in the early 20th century. He was appointed by president Taft to the Mixed Courts in Egypt between 1911-1936. He made a brief second visit to Egypt for the OAS in 1942. Judge Pierre Crabites was the presiding judge on the Mixed courts for the case for sequestration rights to the Tomb of Tutankhamun in 1924. We have an image of him in his judicial robes wearing the Judicial Badge, although that badge is not with the family at this point. He was on very friendly terms with King Farouk and was a frequent visitor to the palace and its library. He found in favor of Egypt keeping the Tutankhamun artifacts in country and not allowing them to be taken to Britain. Judge Crabites was awarded the Order of Ismail (probably Grand Officer class) and another medal I cannot yet identify. I have attached 2 images of this medal (I apologize for the poor quality of the images through the glass of the mounting). The medal in question is not a military award, and is likely related to his judgement that kept the Tutankhamun artifacts in Egypt. The medal is round with the Khedive crown on top, it is gold or gold plated. The central portrait is a 3/4 view of a moustached man in a military style uniform and fez that is probably King Farouk. There is no writing on the visible side of the medal (it is in a frame and I cannot open it yet to see the reverse side). Around the margin are several images of Egytian antiquities separated from each other and the central portrait by scrolling. In the 12:00, 4:00, and 8:00 positions are stylized forms of ancient Egyptian scarabs flanked by lotus blossoms. On the upper right third is an image of the sphinx. On the upper left third is a view of the pyramids. At the bottom is a scene that probably represents archaeological ruins. I have not yet had any luck in my research to identify this medal and would appreciate any help determining what it may have been awarded for or suggestions about references I could consult further. Thank you for your attention to my inquiry.
  8. Hello Gents, a few years ago I got this commander cross of the Brilliant Star of Zanzibar. It was told to me, that the recipient was a businessman and it should have been a german award ?! Is it possible to date the cross ? Your help is greatly appreciated.
  9. I have recently seen the following Weimar era unofficial WW1 Veterans' cross for sale (Deutsches Feld-Ehrenkreuz 1914-1918). Does anyone know which Veteran Association this cross refers to and what ribbon was it hanging from? Any info will be most welcome. Thank you in advance. Jean-Sam.

The first one is the Turkish Independence War Medal, second the Turkish War Medal. Then next 2 USA medals and I think last one is Korean. Will you please help me to recognize these medals. Thanks Demir

  17. Hi guys, I've recently obtained a pair of shoulder boards which bear the coat of arms of the Francoist Spain, but am unable to identify the position or rank related to it.I think we might be able to rule out it being a party related position either as the Falange had their own shoulder boards which bore their own party crest, like Serrano Suner's. Was wondering then if anyone had any idea whether this pair of shoulder boards relate to any specific rank or position under Franco's regime. Thanks! Weixiang
  18. I would be most grateful if some learned member of this forum could help me ID this Generalmajor please. On the reverse of the photo is a green stamp – verboten 1943 and the Vienna photographers stamp (Album Kobo) . many thanks for looking, Ian

  21. Appreciate any help with identification of the painter and / or the man on the portrait it self. Don't hesitate to ask any question. To me the signature on the painting reads; H.Carls, but I can't find any info under that name. The word Sennelager would mean; "training camp", so I could find. The handwriting in pencil at the back is also a mistery to me...
  22. Hi guys, here is one really nice collored medal , if you know something about it please let me know , thank you Petro
