So beautiful.

On the ring on post 4, there is something silver hallmark and jeweler ? It is possible to have a close up please.



I think it says 800 SILBER :unsure: (but my wife says I do need new glasses) Kevin in Deva. :D

P.S: there is also a mark on the cross in post 1: Grand Commander with Turquoise: Badge

Here's my example that will probably be part of my site's next update. The Honour Cross 2nd class is the second most "common" class of this order, with nine recipients known. In total, the list of known recipients names 90 persons - for all 27 classes and grades(!) of this order combined. See here for the list published by Dr. Lars Adler in October 2018.

And my Star of Brabant ribbon bar to Major dL Hans Eberhardt.

Wow, so cool! That's one I'd consider to keep, although I'm neither collecting Hessen nor Hohenzollern...

    • 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.
