The WW1 War decorations from the various German states are often encountered in the 16mm version for wear on chain, but what about the 16mm version as a stickpin? Other than the common EK1, I only have the Anhalt Friedrich-Kreuz, which apparently is a non-official decoration.

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.







Thats a stunning collection

Now this tread have been activated again, I can add a few as well.

A nice Godet chain, nothing special, but I have been looking for the Red Cross Merit medal from Württemberg for some time!



Two versions of the War Commemorative Cross 1813-1814 from Anhalt-Dessau.



A somewhat rare seen Order of Louise 2nd class 1865 version

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) not many of these decorations were awarded and (2) it seems that miniatures of women’s awards tend to be uncommon.

    • 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.
