Oak leaf for Iron Cross 2nd Class 1870


Recommended Posts

My oakleaves not sure which variant

Variant No 10, until now I found this one on 12 different order bars. It is also shown in a catalogue of AWS from 1908. So it is quite sure an old and original one version of the Oak leaves.

Regards, Komtur.

Something you might find interesting.

Here is a scan of a ribbon bar from a Paul Küst catalog page.

I believe that this dates to before 1914 as the only iron crosses

shown are 1870s.

Paul Kust made miniature awards, button devices, frack chains,campaign bars

and possibly the 25 year oak leaves. I was hoping you might be able to match

the poor detailed oak leaf drawing to one of your Oaks versions.

Just for reference, hear is the full sized page that shows his offerings.

I was trying, but unfortunately not. But many thanks for your input :beer:

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • 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 .
