Hello Peter J,

To answer your question, according to Hessenthal/Schreiber - This decoration, the Honor Cross for the year 1870/71 was (translated) ?Founded by King Johann on 6 March 1871 for men, women and young ladies...?

I hope that this information is helpful.

Best wishes,

Wild Card

Very nice ! And a rare one !! :love:

And, there is a more rare model, with a letter "E" on the oval's middle...

Greetings

I am sorry, but this information is not correct. The letter "E" ( for "Elisabeth"), 16 mm height, was not in the middle on the medal. It was only fixed with two splints on the ribbon of the award. As far as I know, there exists only a drawing of it, you can see in my book and find the original in my collection in the "Schlossmuseum Jever".

Best regards

Beautiful!! My cousin and I were at a show one time ten years back and I saw one with an EK2 and DRKm for $45. I didn't buy it as I thought it was some sort of 1870s commemorative. No knowledge=loss.

Foolish, foolish ignorant me.

It's the beautiful one that got away.

Superb piece. :Cat-Scratch:

Congrats!

Hi Joe!

It is, but sorry, nothing usefull on the back. The only thing we know is, that she lives in K?nigsberg. The picture came with a cross, but I?m afraid it is not hers, because of the different style of wearing the ribbon.

Best regards, Komtur.

    • 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.
