Congrats Justin...that's a great collection you're putting together.

If you're looking for S-Boot citations, I've got a nice, rare Kurland doc to an S-Boot man.

Very best...Peter

I have been working on my display.

I think that I will create one that has the Scharnhorst/Gniesenau with the 3 Panzerschiff, and the Kreuzer Fleet.

I have been having a hell of a time mounting these. Mostly finding ways of securing and keeping some gentle traction without causing a great deal of strain over a harsh bend. If someone has a good idea how they stored their items. I have removed the tallies from the glass case I had previously posted. I am thinking that I should invest in some paper or cotton cloth wadding and make little tubular roles and have them along the posterior side of the matting board. then have the tallies wrapped and have a securement piece of matting for behind.

This is going to be quite a time involved project seeing I am trying to mount several tallies and trying to maintain good spacing, no sagging and maintaining a level display.

If anyone has any suggestions, I would love to hear them.

Regards,

JustinG

3 questions please:1)it is more difficult find an UNTERSEEBOOTSCHULE cap tally or u-boats flotillas cap tallies?

2)how many UNTERSEEBOOTSCHULE there were during the war and where were those located ?

finally, what would be a good price for an UNTERSEEBOOTSCHULE cap tally made in metal thread and 150 lengh aprox?

thanks in advance :cheers:

The standard Unterseebootschule tally is not as uncommon as say the Unterseebootsabwehrschule, Unterseebootsschuleflottille tallies. I would estimate around 150 Euro is a fair price to pay.. I got a decent one on ebay for 90USD. Shown here, there is a bit of fraying on the "h". This is my duplicate. :)

That being said, there is no unterseeboot tally that is just out there "floating" around.

Arne, That is the best picture/painting proof I have seen. Always makes me envious.

Great job.

Thanks Justin for your friendly words - I guess by all accounts that you've really shown that it is possible to have both quantity and quality in your collection ;)

Here's another display/frame that I'm much found of - Zerstörer Georg Thiele portrayed by using a war-time large photo and the accompanying pre-war Mützenband.

So Arne, Do you have the photos professionally matted and then place the Muetzenband yourself in position? Do you do this all yourself?

Stunning and quality displays.

Well, I was finally able to obtain a period Unterseebootsflottille Emsmann muetzenband. That completes the named U-Flottille's. :)

I am very fortunate.

Congratulations on acquiring an Emsmann. A very difficult ribbon to find.

We should really change the title of this thread as the word "Meagre" is long out of date !

So I have added two other additions: A metalfaden version of the Linienschiff Hannover and I got the U=begleitschiff Erwin Wassner.

So, These are the ones I have remaining:

Unterseebootstender Mosel

U=Begleitschiff Waldemar Kophamel

U=Begleitschiff Otto Wuensche

U=Begleitschiff Wilhelm Bauer.

If any of you come across these, I would be grateful. I am also missing 5 destroyer tallies. :)

Thanks for looking,

JustinG

Justin,

You only need the Mosel to complete your U-Boat set, there were no ribbons for the Kophamel, Bauer or Wünsche

Good to know: Thanks! :)

I am truly sorry to hear about your wife and your misfortune. That is a very touching thing she did getting you that Scharnhorst tally. It looks in incredible condition.

As for price, That was quite a nice bargain price IMO. A tally like this generally goes for around 200-250 Euro, some dealers have them listed for 300 Euro.

You got quite a deal with this one. A nice Panzerschiff one from the Admiral Scheer and Deutschland are more available than period Admiral Graf Spee which can run into bigger bucks since they are more coveted.

The Schlachtschiff muetzenbands are limited and don't turn up as often. The Scharnhorst is more common to find, than the Gneisenau.

This is a great looking muetzenband and will hold special significance since it was a gift from your wife. (She did good :))

Best of luck to you and your family and congratulations on acquiring such a nice tally.

Regards,

Justin

    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.  
    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian
