Hmmmmmm, where's the Bavarian Bar with the only example of the Silver Merit Medal of the Bavarian Order of The Crown? That's a "one-of"........

I have some rare stuff but nothing that qualifies as super rare per Stogie's guidance and what's on display.

The strange blue and white ribbon on the right side of the bar. The only two known to exist. Now, if I could just figure out what it actually is, my OCD streak could finally have a well deserved break. :rolleyes:

Other than that...

On ribbon bars, I have a Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach Order of the White Falcon 1st Class (1 of 154) and two Bavarian Military Merit Cross 1st Class with Crown and Swords (2 of ~175). Not much else that's anywhere near as rare, beyond that.

I'm not sure about this one gents...but I haven't seen a huge number of these Franz Josepf RKs mounted in groups, especially not on frack bars.

Anyway this my my only really rare piece, a lucky pickup about 15 years ago.

cheers Jason

    • 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.
