Dear fellow collectors,

here is my  latest acquisition, a Saxon frackspange made after 1934. Saxon spanges in this style are rare, especially when made after 1933. The second picture is with my other Albrechtsorden. The albrechtsorden on the bar is made by Roesner, and the other two are from Scharffenberg.

Kind regards, Laurentius

Claudio, I love anything with a mounted Merit Order! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Rick! You know that I saw the exactly Sto arrivando!me medal bar with the same combination of decorations and documents being sold on a German auction ? Either is this combination not unique or it was the same wearer....

Nice stuff!!!! Do the ribbon bars come with name’s attributions?

 

Thanks. Unfortunately no names. Also, I believe the combinations are common, so it would come down to photographic evidence for identification :(

Dr. Speck, would not be that hopeless.

The bar in the middle - double Saxon + Oldenburg looks a bit promising.

 

Best,

Daniel

Hi Daniel,

That would be cool :jumping: there is not much to go on though. I reckon it would require a process of elimination based on what is and what isn't there - and all the bearers (around '38/'39) with this combination would have to be known...

Best regards. Peter

Dr.Speck,

for that bar, I would put Oberstarzt Dr. Hans Erchenbrecher in closer consideration.

In WW1 he was a Oberarzt with IR 107, receiving the Saxon Duo, EK's and the Oldenburg 2nd class, served in the Reichsheer and finished as Oberstarzt in WW2.

Best,

Saxon styled Frackspangen (tuxedo bars) are not so easy to find in a combatants`s version. 

For this shown piece on non-combatant ribbon  - it took nearly 10 years to find such a piece for my collection. 

The IC is a KO (Klein & Quenzer) piece - the hindy cross is a G&S (Glaser & Son, Dresden/Saxony)

I was happy to find that piece in a small Militaria shop in 2019.

    • 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.
