May I present a little lady who has recently emerged from the shadows. She is a miniature of the Prussian Frauen-Verdienstkreuz which was founded on 22 October 1907. She must be quite rare because (1)

I don't collect minis, but here are my nicest examples, a pretty rare VKmdK, and a Kette which belonged to Rittmeister Roger von Boch of Villaroy&Boch fame.

It's nice to see this tread go on. One of my later acquisitions, nothing special, but I really enjoy the ornamented button by Meybauer. Definately the first one for me. I hope you enjoy.

Possibly from the same maker (note the basketweave button),  3 piece EKII.

Tom, that's an absolute gem love.gif . I've never seen a 3-piece 16mm EK mini, which I presume this is. The details are unbelievably great.

Here are a few assorted pieces.

Great stuff, guys. Keep it up. The detail on these little jewels is amazing sometimes. This is kinda cheating, but here's a mini bow with a full sized EK ohmy.gif

I still can't get over a THREE piece same as full size mini EK!

My HHOX is 10 tongue.gif piece:

[attachmentid=6171][attachmentid=6170]

1-3) two halves of suspension crown with pin through it to attach cross

4) cross and wreath

5) obverse center "hubcap"

6) reverse center "hubcap"

7-10) four HALF swords each separately applied and just barely under the obverse disk. Held sideways, you can see straight through it between the cross, the tiny "toothpick nubs" sword pieces, and the disk resting atop THEM. speechless.gifwacko.gifohmy.gif

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
