Hello Chuck, The enamel looks fine on your MVO 4th with Crown and Swords by Weiss u. Co.  Each maker (Weiss, Leser, Gebruder Hemmerle, etc) had their own blue enamel shade.  Your enamel is of the

Lauer delivers the Ordenskanzlei till 1916.

Servus Andreas,

Ordenskanzlei verstehe ich nicht. Die gab es doch erst nach 1918. Es müsste wohl Kgl. Bayerisches Kriegsministerium heißen, oder irre ich mich da?

Hi all,

this is my first post here, so please be patient with me.

Recently on German Ebay many MVK1st class have popped up, all of which look repaired or restored. I would like to know your opinion on these pieces which sold for fairly low prices except for the one with crown. On of them was even sold twice, but the old auction from November can not be accessed anymore. 

I myself am very interested in the MVKs so I would like to post more questions and observations in the future. 

Hopefully this post is not too large. A single screenshot from an ipad amounts already to a 7mb file.

Thanks and regards,

Martin

Hello Martin;

I am glad you can join us on this forum. 

In my opinion, if you are interested in buying MVKs, I would recommend a well-established dealer.  Their websites make it clear that they guarantee the authenticity, and will buying back something if it is shown to be a fake.  

I look forward to your future posts.

Cladius, Chris, thank you for your warm welcome!

Spolei has helped me via PM to understand why these are indeed fakes, thanks a lot!

The funny thing is that currently there are more 1st class on Ebay than 2nd class. And we all know that this does not reflect the actual award numbers.

So, as promised what little I have so far:

Original post-war bar of Xaver Hauser.

Swords are Deschler.

Cant upload more because the system tries to merge the post and I exceed the upload limit. Which was no problom when I uploaded the 7mb plus photos above... Its not much you are missing, just two late war boxes from Weiss with MVK3rd class.

Hello Martin
At the higher levels, you should be extra careful. MVK 1 with crown and swords is very often forged. 
An original of Leser you can see in my post above. Exactly so an original must look by Leser. Other
versions of Leser are not original.

Hi Walter,

vielen Dank! 

Mein MVK1b sieht so aus. Spolei hatte mich darauf hingewiesen. Daher denke ich dass es original ist.

Schöne Grüße,

Martin

Hello, this MVK 2. Kl. X was an original piece, in which the swords were missing 
and a damage in the enamel is recognizable. These 2nd classes with swords can 
often get between 80 and 120 euros. Without swords and with damage, I find 80 
euros for this peace not cheap.

I hope that brings you a little further.

Best regards Walter

    • 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.
