    Nice and rare CDV with Oldenburg and Lippe-Detmold

    Recommended Posts

    Hello gents,

    here is another nice photo (carte de visit?), which I hope you can identify:

    This officer wears at his bar:

    -Eisernes Kreuz 2.Klasse 1870 (iron cross 2nd class 1870)

    -Kriegsdenkm?nze 1870/71 (war medal 1870/71)

    -Oldenburg Hausorden Ritterkreuz 2.Klasse mit Schwertern ( :( ???) (Oldenburg house-order knights-cross 2nd class with swords)

    - Hausorden Lippe Detmold Ehrenkreuz 3.Klasse (house-order Lippe-Detmold 3th class)

    I don?t know for sure if it is the 1st model of the HO Lippe-Detmold (chiffre LA, awarded 1887-1889= 16 times !) or the 2nd model (chiffre L awarded 1890-1918=276 times!).

    But this photo must be taken before 1897...(missing Centenar-Medaille).

    At its back there is a stamp from the photograph "Theodor Pr?mm, Unter den Linden 51 in Berlin" which shows the year 1888.

    If 1888 is the right year, the ID of the shown man should be very easy...can anybody help me and rename this soldier?

    Thank you for your help :blush:
