Bayoswede, thats the idea yes :cheers:

A few tips:

- in the second row there are the C= Combat, NC = Non Combat NCB = Non Combat Black listings, you should maybe try to add two more colums giving them those names? We want a column for each medal right? One picture for C, one for NC and one for NCB (or as i prefer W = widows).

- the picture in the "picture-column" now shows a complete backpicture, but with more medals added this would all look the same, maybe only list the makersmark thumbnail and then when you click on it the whole picture shows up?

just a few little ideas, i like this project, it will be immense and we will need LOTS of pictures of close up maker marks on all these medals (i love it :D), ill post a few of mine later tonight too.

on http://stirnpanzer.com/forum/index.php there is a first attempt at making a list with all makers, i copied it under here, maybe its usefull. the list is far from complete, but it's a start. (and i don't know if posting links to other sites is allowed, excuse me if not, moderator just delete it then):

Yes. I will just post documents. :rolleyes::catjava:


Here is another good example of the "potential" with Urkunden:

Reichsbank Employee looks like :sleep: and it was issued in the capitol of W?rttemberg, but Bielke was a demobilized Bavarian foot artillery Major on his second "mid life" career!

Oddly enough, the Police President of Stuttgart--

Rudolf Klaiber (born 1873) was that rarest of Third Reich higher functionaries-- a career civil servant and PROFESSIONAL police official. He had been in charge of Stuttgart's Provincial Criminal Police Directorate since 1914, served during the war as head of military police in the W?rttemberg General Staff, and returned from the war to take over as Director of the W?rttemberg Landeskriminalpolizei Amt.

He had also been serving as Polizei Pr?sident of Stuttgart since 1923!

Now there is no "autograph value" to any of this-- but the social and political backgrounds to be revealed (when legible :rolleyes: ) from Hindenburg Cross documents are fascinating!

Note that Bielke initialled down at the bottom right "handed out 13.03.35" implying some sort of festive ceremony for the presentation-- perhaps in a batch with other Bank employees?

Please feel free to use anything you want, that's why i posted these here in the first place, it's about time these medals finally get investigated a bit better!

Over the next few days/weeks i'll try to post more pictures in this section ;-)

kind regards,

After looking at the site again:

Great stuff! and im most surprised you found the makers for KM&F en W.

Last night i googled a bit and couldn't find them, very cool you have found them.

Also i noticed a few pictures of makers marks only and no full shots, i guess it would be easy to pick most marks just from the internet, but im not sure what to think of that? I could give you a site with a few dozens for sale, a lot of makers are to be found there.

Personnally i like the idea of a project here with all new original pictures a bit more ;-)

    • 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.
