Well thank God for modern medicine to help me live a lot longer.  Maybe I can get the rest of the set by the time I am 95!  Don are they  Poellath marked?  Thanks for showing them to us.  Cheers Robert

Been quiet here for some time. While I have added a few pieces new to me, they have been pictured before. I still enjoy picking them up and browsing this thread. :cool:

Hope you all are doing well and finding new and exciting pieces.

I have had this for a few years, will add it as a visual aid. Worn condition.

They look great all together Don. Is the wreath a separate addition or is it a one piece badge?                                   --dj--Joe

Thank you.

The badge is one piece, unlike the fake/fantasy version that has a separate green enamel wreath.

    • 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

    • 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...
