  1. Good morning, I want to finally start work on the reconstruction of this bar. Do you all have any sources for these missing pendants? Is that listing on the back of the bar accurate? Some of these items I have no idea what the pendents looking like. How difficult are they going to be to find? I know that the Centenial Medal and EK2 will be pretty easy, but what about the rest? Thank you all for your time and help. Regards Paul
  2. Hi all, does anyone recognise the medal on the ordenspange indicated?, it COULD be Wuerttemburg but not sure, it has an unusual suspension ring, any help appreciated, I recognise the rest, for interest it belonged to Johannes von Pezold regards Alex K
  3. We see this common medal on ribbon bar threads, but I thought I'd start its own thread. Show your singles... This silver one is signed K Schwenzer under the neck... Experts: Are there any other engravers besides Schwenzer? Anyone have examples of the silvered bronze or 'Kriegsmetall' variants?
  4. Does anyone know anything about this pilot ? I recently bought a Pic of him and seller says he got the Würtemberg Goldene Militär Verdienst Medallie 20.6.17 And had 7 air victorys , but I cant find anything about him on the net ? Pic coming Christer
  5. My apologies for the poor photos. I have had this sword for a few years. named to Ulanen-Regt. Konig Karl ( 1. Wurttembergisches ) Nr.19. An enlisted ranks private purchase sword, engraved on both sides, as usual for these somewhat common, but, ay least to me ,very handsome weapons. It has the folding guard as well.
  6. Hi all, I picked this group up recently. There are some interesting features - placing of the ribbons of and the lack of swords on the ww1 commemorative medals. Also, the placing of a wreath device on the Austrian commemorative medal must have been something of a personal choice or just to replace broken off swords... haven't seen this before... I've added a closeup shot of one of the enameled wreath devices - the enamelling is microscopic thin Hope you like the pictures, all comments welcome
  7. I picked this one up a several months ago simply because I like the way it looks. Too bad it's not a military award. It's the Annerkennungs-Medaille der König-Karl-Jubiläums-Stiftung. Recognition Medal of the King Karl Jubilee Foundation; 1893-1921. The Jubilee Foundation was created in 1891 on the occasion of the jubilee of König-Karl under the direction of the Interior Ministry to improve the welfare of the rural poor and to support small businesses. Two years later, in 1893, the medal was instituted by König Wilhelm II to recognize long and faithful service to the Foundation.
  8. Here is a farewell present from his fellow officers of the 3. Grade Feldartillerie-Regiment in form of a silver dish engraved with all their arms. Those who were not noble and/or did not have arms just added their monograms. Karl von Normann-Ehrenfels died as commander oft the Feldartillerie-Regiment „König Karl“ (1. Württembergisches) Nr. 13 at the beginning of WWI. His other biographical/career data can be seen on the last scan. An almost identical piece is known for Generalfeldmarschall Werner von Brauchitsch (1881-1948): http://www.huesken.com/shop/de/persoenlichkeiten-des-iii-reiches/werner-brauchitsch-silberteller-41769.html
  9. Hi, Does anyone have the History of IR125? Specifically the first week of June 1916, I think they were attacking Hill 60 ? Thanks Chris
  10. At one time, I thought Württemberg would be my collecting focus; I picked up these sterbebilder a few years ago. This first one is quite curious. Serg. Josef Zehetmaier's card states he was awarded the EK2 and the Wuertt. Verdienst Ordern. But I though the Württemberg Verdienst Orden was for officers - with less than 4000 awarded in all grades. So, how did this sergeant get one? Perhaps the printer made a mistake; if we look at his ribbons in the photo, it looks more like a Bavarian Militär-Verdienstkreuz ribbon. The printer being confused since Zehetmaier was in the Württemberg Resv. Infantrie-Regiment Nr. 119. What do you all think?
  11. Who was the Regimental Commander at the start of the war? The unit history says it was Oberst v. Lind and normally I would go with that but the CDR was wounded in late August (officially replaced 1 Sep) so he does not feature much in the history which was written in 1920. On this site he is listed as Oberst v. Linck: http://www.militaerpass.net/26rd.htm So who is correct?
  12. Soldat Paul sent this photo of himself as a memento to his darling sister; his ribbon looks like a Württemberg Militär-Verdienstmedaille to me... Agree / disagree?
  13. Dear Forumites, I promised in my previous thread about the Burg of Hohenzollern (Hechingen), that I would show another beautiful castle that I found almost by coincidence on the internet. I wanted to visit because it is located just about 40 km North East from Hechingen and was on our way. I am talking about the castle of Lichtenstein, bearing the name of a respectable and noble family which owned the castle until the 17th century. The castle was then in the 1st half of the 19th century being bought by Count Wilhelm of Württemberg (cousin of King Wilhelm of Württemberg). Here is the link : http://www.schloss-lichtenstein.de/english/ Not only the architecture, evoking such most beautiful example of German romantic neo-Gothic knight's castle, I had the the pleasure to be surprisingly amazed by a little but fine collection of period paintings and quite most importantly, a very nice collection of mid 19th century German orders owned by one of the family members of the counts . The castle has been competely being restored in more phases since the 80ies, culminating in the last works of late 90ies-beginning of 2000, being quite significantly sponsored by public and private funds (of the count's dinasty still going on today). Here is an overview of the castle: http://www.schloss-lichtenstein.de/english/galerie.php Here below pictures of some totally renovated halls and painstakingly painted walls. More to follow...
  14. Hi friends everywhere! As some of you know, i am interested in collecting non combatant bars and other nice WW 1 stuff. ...This one was sold at our ebay (germany) a few years ago. If anybody knows in which collection this bar is, please PM me. I have the recipient and he has to do with my hometown. Thanks a lot for your help.
  15. The Traveling Museum was by yesterday, and having noted post by Peter J and questions from Paul R and bryansk1959 concerning WVKXs... here are two rather conflicting "typical groups" that are COMPLETE: The medal bar here is on a sub-species of South German mounting: too big to really work as a ribbon bar, and too small to make a pretty medal bar. But this fine fellow was obviously a career Feldwebel type from his long service and wartime awards... not to mention that Württemberg Life Saving Medal (!) on the end--
  16. Sometimes we forget that before the World War, iron Crosses were not handed out to German officers just for breathing while on wartime duty. In fact, many 1870/71 officers--Prussian as well as allies--did NOT receive an iron Cross. Instead--at least in the other states--they got prettier things that were much MUCH rarer. Shared once again by the Traveling Museum--as a change from all that BLUE enamel that seems to be accumulating lately! Not that there is any unseemly, ungentlemanly rivalry going on!!!) This is a particularly nice set since it includes a miniature ribbons bar that may just be--you'll see why soon--the earliest reduced size ribbon bar I've ever seen. It does not appear to have ever had minis on it. The awards are: Württemberg Crown Order-Knight 2nd Class with Swords (WK3bX) Württemberg XXV Years Service Cross 1870/71 War Medal Württemberg Campaign Medal "for 1 campaign" reverse (1866)
  17. Gentlemen, Here is a ribbon bar I was looking at last night. I have four questions: -Shouldn't the Württemberg ribbon have a device for Officer's decoration(4th ribbon)? -Shouldn't the Württemberg ribbon precede the Friedrich Order? -Does the Austrian Crown Order device look ok? -Is this a Godet ribbon bar (note the clasp and pin)? I assume this ribbon bar was made post 1938 as the two Austrian Orders have been bumped up before the Honour Cross. Thank you Matt
  18. I've collected British medals for many years but rarely other ones, and not German. I was given the medal shown in the photos a few years ago and came across it in my collection again the other day, but I can't find any reference for it from online searches. I know it's related to Wurttemberg from the inscription on the reverse, but I don't know the name of the medal, what it would have been given for, or to whom? Any information on the medal would be greatly appreciated. The obverse is gilt and enamel and the reverse is gilt(not shown that well, due to my poor camera) The wording on the reverse across the left-to-right arms of the cross is: "Furchtlos u. treu" There's 1914 and 1918 on the upper and lower arms. And the wording around the oval centre is :"Wurttembergisches kriegs erinnerungs leichen." The medal measures about 4cm across (1.5"inches) (I hope I've posted this in the right place on the forum, apologies if I haven't.)
  19. Hello Gentlemen, before a year, I got this nice trio: Württemberg Charlottenkreuz Württemberg bronzene Karl - Olga - Medaille Bayern Verdienstkreuz für freiwillige Krankenpflege mit Spange 1914 Preußen Rote Kreuz Medaille 3. Klasse 3rd Reich additional fixed Ehrenkreuz für Kriegsteilnehmer
  20. Hi.Received medal group, prompt please, what award could be between EK2 and a cross of merits?May be Wilhelm's cross or bravery medal? Many thanks for the help.Alexander.
  21. I assume these usually did not have award docs? This one had a cover letter, the award and a return reciept...
