HI Stijn

That would be great. I have a longer weekend than usual, so I would have some more time for the L?beck transcriptions.

Not sure if this is the right place, but it's L?beck and i think somehow related?

I've had this tinnie for a while and wonder what exactly it is? My best guess is it was for calling people to join the army in 1914?

regards,

Gaston

Hi,

I can assist Rick, it is definetely not a call to join the Army.

Please see here the "Erster Hanseatenappell Hamburg 1913"

http://www.german-militaria.de/details/d17422.html

I think that it is a roll call for a close and better collaboration between the Hanse cities, especial in economic development and expansion.

Regards

Uwe

Bremen; The last ceremony was held on 23 November 1923. A total of 20,018 decorations have been awarded.
Hamburg; Is estimated to approximately 50,000 Hanseatenkrueze have been awarded.
Lubeck; The ceremonies of the cross extending to the year 1919.

Where did you get it? As far as I know these are considered fake. They pop up on eBay periodically sold by known crooks.

I bought it on ebay. Usually when fakes are made, they are more abundant or prolific to warrant the die being manufactured. Interesting.  I see that with coins. Time after time, you see the same fake and thus are able to draw that conclusion.

I have strong doubts that this is genuine. The fact you bought it on eBay reinforces this opinion. The infamous "Club" and its various alter-egos dole these out sparingly on eBay, in order the avoid raising alarms. There's also a seller called Porre81 who sells these and most of his items are fake.

Except for eBay, I have never seen this cross before, anywhere and I've been collecting Imperial for over 50 years. It could well be a fantasy piece.

    • 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.
