Hello every one.

I am new to this forum and this is my firts post here.

I have the opertunity to buy this cased Mechlenburg Grffen Order for around 800 euro and wanted to know if this is a fair price.

They are quite rare and you do not see them come up for sale very often so pricing them is quite hard. My friend Mike who has a big imperial collection thinks that it is a fair price but I wanted to get other opinions.

Regards

Peter

They are indeed rare and I think that's a fair price for this (Rose?) piece.

Hi Dave

Thanks for taking the time to respond to my post.

I really do not know a lot about these orders and ther makers.

I have attached a couple more pictures that I have so feel free to comment.

In the mean time I will e-mail the seller and try and get a closup of the griffin.

Regards

Hi Everybody,

This is my Offizierskreuz of the Griffin Order... it should be a Godet cross. Eur 800.- is about today's value of a such cross in such conditions and in its issue case.

Ciao,

Claudio

Gentlemen,

Okay, I?ll be the one to ask. You have no doubt noticed the rivets in the three and nine o?clock arms in the cross in post #1. Does anyone else recall a discussion regarding this? I have tried to find it through several searches; but no luck.

Claudio - Am I safe in assuming from the pictures of your Godet that, unlike the Rose crosses, the edges of the reverse are beveled? Interesting.

Below is another Rose example.

Hi Wildcard,

Yes, I noticed the rivets. I recall seeing one of these riveted Rose examples before, possible on eBay and I think discussed on WAF.

My example is that same type as Dave D's.

Interesting that there are so many variants. Explanations I can think include a high degree of individual hand work or Rose were outsourcing (the similarity in the bevelling with the Godet example is interesting!

Regards

Mike

    • 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.
