  1. Hi, just want to show my awards from Finland. i don´t have the $$$$$$$ stuff , but still got a collection worth showing I think. I start from the beginning in 1918 My first item is a Commerative medal for participating in the war 1918 , made by Sporrong & Co Stockholm Sweden in about 100 000 pieces given to all that took part in the war , including Germans +12000 and Swedish + 1000. This medal have the bar 2 Karjala Rintama " which means Carelian Front , they could also be awarded with a rose on the ribbon for bravery.
  2. As per request, I'll start a personnel list of German Officers in Finland in 1918. As the whole thing is translated from finnish, some obscure ranks and units might be incorrectly translated or missing. Also, the list lacks most of the first names. Any corrections and/or additions are more than welcome. I'll start with the Ostseevision, while Detachement Brandenstein, Sonderverbande der Ostsee and some lower-rank officers & miscellaneous persons will follow later. Pete
  3. [attachmentid=39363] I got this picture at Foreign affairs ministry of my country, when i worked in the historical archieves of the ministry, that i know in the urriculum of this man called Harun-al-rascid-Bey that recived the comedators cross of the white rose, with the finnish nationality. i hope you like it sorry by the bad english Regards Carlos
  4. Hi Gents, A quick question. I know the cross was established in 1938 and awarded to those who took part in Battle of Vilppula in 1918. I found 4 different types of this cross, can anyone tell me which of them were officially awarded and which are private purchase items? Or at least what was the earlier type of the cross from these four? Any info is welcome! 1. Type one, made of bronze. Often met on old medal bars, I believe I've seen an example of this type among Mannerheim medals. 2. Type 2, made of iron. 3. Type 3, bronze again 4. And a final one, made of iron.
  5. Hello. I have a unique Order of the White Rose with its presentation box. Please take a look at the photos. It has a unique 'button' on the ribbon. Anyone know what this is for? Also, based on the photos, can someone give an approximate date of issue? Thanks. Linas
  6. Hello. I have 2 Finland regimental badges. Each is numbered on the back. Can you please help me identify each, as well as what time period? Thanks. Linas

  8. Finland anyone? Just want show some items from my collection of Ribbons bars as the order and medals has become quite expensive I mostly collect theese small wonders 1: Top Liberty Cross 4th class 1939 and Vinterwar medal w swords Below Winterwar medal w swords
  9. Hello Gents, today i found this cross at one of fake monglers hangouts. I know there has been several batches made of the cross but this one doesn´t match those i have in my reference files. Perhaps it´s me that is extra jumpy since the Hero aka Carsten Staegemeir hangs on that site i found it on... Any opinions regarding the cross?
  10. Was cleaning out my closets looking the the rest of the Polish items I have yet to sell and pulled out all my Finnish tunics. Some have trousers and breeches and most have caps though they're in a box. I thought I'd share for those who like Finnish militaria. I'm very fond of the Finnish Winter War and Continuation War. The Finns fight hard there is not doubt.
  11. Good day to you all, Does anybody know where it's possible to find long spare ribbons (6 in. / 16 cm. at least) for the Finnish 1941-1945 Continuation War medal, or who is likely to sell that. Thank you in advance for letting me know. All the best. Jean-Samuel Karlen.
  12. Here is my newest addition to my collection, a simple looking medal but very seldom seen It is the medal for Peasants March against communism July 7th 1930 , it was the extreme right wing Lappo Movement who organized a march to Helsinki with 12 000 people. How many medals that where struck is unknown to me,but since the Lappo was banned in 1932 I suppose not many of these medals was saved. Christer
  13. Gentlemen, Just a quick question regarding the Finnish Order of the White Rose. I have seen lower grades of the Order with swords running diagonally through the cross, but wondered if the GRAND CROSS came with swords? I cannot find any photos, just images of the Grand Cross without swords. Thank you Pierce
  14. I don´t know were to put this really ? Since the 27th Jaeger Batl was an Prussian Unit but with mostly Finnish volunteers... Maybe its interesting to share some info about this unit ? I have a lot of info and pics to show you , lets begin...... The unit was born August 26th 1915 and troops was to be foreign volunteers lead by German officers . 66 Finnish soldiers was upranked to build up the group which was called " Ausbildungstruppe Lockstedt. " Later in May 9 1916 it was named Königlich Preussisches Jägerbataillon Nr. 27 The 27th fought on the Eastern front in 1916 to get experience and combat training. Commander of 27th was Major Bayer ( img034.jpg ) C 1st Comp Hauptmann Julius Knaths ( img035.jpg) C 2nd Comp Hauptmann von Mangoldt (img036.jpg) C 3rd Comp Hauptmann von Coler ( img037.jpg) C 4th Comp Hauptmann Ausfeld ( img038.jpg) C Pioneer Comp Hauptmann Walter Just (img039.jpg) C Machinegun Comp Leutn Staehl ( img040.jpg)
  15. Rare awards dosn´t need to look expensive or even look welldone , some awards are just rare This simple looking medal was only awarded 730 times , less the a Knights Cross w Oakl ..... ( without any further comparsion) This is the Medal of Merit for Frontsmen´s Union of Liberation War , Finland 1918 There was also a Cross of Merit and that is still rarer , only 80 awarded...... But even this medal is very hard to find and it was a nice last finding for 2014 Happy New Year everyone Christer
  16. Dear Gentlemen, Where there other makers of the Cross of Liberty besides Tillander during WWII? The badge I have have no hallmarks, see pictures. Any information would be helpfull. Thank you.
  17. Here's an impressive miniature chain with 5 Commanders and one Officer. I don't know if this piece is traceable, but all suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
  18. Hello fellow collectors, Found this along with some other stuff today. Just wanted to check what you all think? Is this a period item from the Swedish Brigade? Marked Sporrong Stockholm. Rarity, value etc? Best Regards BM
  19. This cross is for sale but I really wonder if its real ? They are really rare , and all I have seen was made of silver with silver marks , but this Cross has no marks at all ?? Any opinions Christer
  20. After a long hunt I got this cross in the mailbox today a Liberty Cross III class 1918 , not easy to find , only 973 pieces awarded , and of them I think less than 700 to Finnish soldiers ( 45 to Swedish and 200 ? to Germans.) I got right now 200 + names in my database so I have some more to go This come from Finland , and looking at the mounting I´m quite sure it was awarded to an Finnish Officer. Now ´m I looking for a 4th class non combat 1918 and the rarest of all 1918 crosses , the ones with Red Cross $$$$$$ Christer
  21. I bought this medal but I´m not sure what it is Finnish that I can see and 1881-1902 so before the liberation war in 1918 .... Some sort of Army Jubilee medal ?? Hopefully its worth the 25 E I paid. Any Finnish experts out there ? Christer
  22. This 2nd class Liberty Cross was sold on EBAY recently , I "borrowed" the pics from there. The ribbon is of course wrong , this ribbon is for 3rd and 4th class but besides that the front lookes quite ok . But the back ?? Seller says it is a German made version ? Is it one of the few new versions without year ? I have never seen a 2nd class 1941 + so I´m totally lost here. the price was more than 200 Euro Any Finnish experts out there ? Christer
  23. Hi Gents, I got a medalbar attributed to Max Hoffmann. There is a liberty cross IV. class with date 1941 on red ribbon with two white side stripes on it. Do there exist award lists and is it possible to get more informations ?! Regards Andreas
  24. Hello Gents, I have a german minichain with this medal. I´ve never seen this before. Maybe there is someone out there who can help me ? Every help appreciated. Regards Andreas
