Pozdrav Pajo druze moj biggrin.gif

Thank you for your good words.

Despite the fact that you have a broken Star here, it's still very rare, Arthus Bertrand Mark maker Karageorge IV class.

You had to see this version you got without crown above 2 head Eagles in Mint condition, astonishing....

Nevertheless,family item as you said and you are proud I am sure about it as you had to be a real fighter, even among Officers to get it...

I like it a lot.

In that book* we talked about, there are lists of how many Karageorge stars with swords were awarded.

Karageorge star with swords I class total 17 Serbs 3

Karageorge star with swords II class total 18 Serbs 4

Karageorge star with swords III class total 198 Serbs 118

Karageorge star with swords IV class total 1317 Serbs 1146

Karageorge star with swords in gold total 1111 Serbs 1074

Karageorge star with swords in silver total 2285 Serbs 1449

Cheers

Not my collecting area but I picked up this nice 1914-1916 Silver class Karageorge award from Dublin yesterday.

Does anyone can determinate the maker?

No need to comment. I needed quickly some funding and I sticked this cross up on sale. Because from where I got it, I am sure it was awarded to someone from any local Irish regiments, who fought in Balkans, but unfortunately I can't confirm it and I just can't keep everything, what I have and do not fit with my current collecting interest.

    • 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.
