Keep the good work up Boris.

Jaybo, welcome to the forum (even though you've been here a few years now) and I hope you've managed to complete the set.

As already indicated, the campaign crosses were from private veteran's organizations and were obtained through direct purchased or subscription. The organizations were the Ehrenbund der Verdun- und Argonnenkampfer and Ehrenbund der Somme- und Champagnekampfer. By the way, all of the medals also exist in 16 mm miniatures.

Hello Claudio

Splendid group :cheers:, I like very much Weimar times medals and those are the most, mainly with this ribbon.

Talking about skill or not, I'm not able to reproduce correctly the ribbons, in special this german, I think are the 'parade' type. :banger:

Regards

Beautiful work, Boris! I think we all do best on the things we love to do, so 'going professional' might ruin it for you, as you say, having to do stuff others want. But please keep posting these great illustrations.

Hi Boris,

That is indeed a beautiful group. I am looking to complete my set of German WW I veteran association medals and am in need of some of those little golden crossed swords that adorn many of them. Do you have any idea of a possible source for them?

All the best,

Jay

Hello peter and thanks

Yes that is the main idea. But even if i would want to be professional (I can't anyway cause I have other profession that don´t let it) d'ont think this kind of oddities or curious things have too much

market. As a member of this forum said, people prefer photos to draws in medals world.

Regards

P.D.: Another curiosity

Hi Boris,

Nice computer art work... although the FEK (Hindenburg Cross, Frontkämpfer-Ehrenkreuz) doesn't really belong to the Weimar Republic period, rather early 3rd Reich, since the series of the Hindenburg crosses (for combattants, non-combattants, and widows and orphans) were issued in 1934-35, about a year after Hitler took the power in Germany. Also in the Nimmergut catalogues these crosses are mentioned under the period 1933-45 (3rd Reich).

Ciao,

Claudio

Hello Claudio, thanks for the correction :rolleyes: , exactly is a third reich decoration period, although was instituted by Hindenburg as president and come from and Weimar times demand, Hitler was ready chancellor.
