That Eagle is a beauty. I had a cased gold 3rd class once.

Mine. I made this up for a project on v. Richthofen. All the medals have been returned to their original ribbons and boxes. This medal bar is no more.................... :(

Thanks, Ed, your group is pretty nice too (the owner probably had a much harder time earning those than my diplomat :) )

I got my diplomat's Romanian Order of the Crown (Commander) too, but didn't get his Austrian Franz Josef Order (Commander) or his Polish Polonia Restituta (Grand Cross). Too bad they were auctioned off as single lots :(

His Danish Dannebrog (Commander) was returned and his Greek Order of Phoenix (GC) and Russian St. Anne (3. class) was not at the auction so who knows where they are...

This is my favourite Imperial Bar

Ed,

I love that Imperial 1813 bar!! It is amazing.

Scott,

That must be the oldest recipient of a combattant 1914EK2!! I am assuming that he was a doctor?

Here is my favorite bar. It is not grandiose in size, but it is a "Cadillac" piece to me!

Is this not a bit like asking ?Which of your children do you love the most??. Unfortunately my ?favorite? full sized pieces do not live here at home and I can not seem to find file photos of them at the moment. The call has gone out and they will be here in a couple of days.

Meanwhile, I will go with the little guys. First is a single piece which I have selected, not because of it?s status; but because of the quality of the workmanship which is one of the main attractions of minis.

It's difficult to say... one of these three!

There're also other bars that I am very attached, like the first ones I bought over 20 years ago... Sometimes I am very sentimental! ;)

Ciao,

Claudio

I?m wordless...Caro Claudio...Dove trovate questa meraviglia??

Lovely groups. Am I right to assume that the mounting of the first shown would point toward a member of the Imperial Navy ? The position of the EK on the right would mean the orders were worn obliquely from upper to lower and left to right.

Could you confirm ?

Regards

Veteran
