a small group with boxes  

Hi everybody today I am an happy collector. I have received today the box for the Kriegsverdienstkreuz. I show here all my boxes from Reuss Christophe

One of mine, a REK3XmKr:

Leutnant Campe (for the moment the Reuß cross is missing). But I show all I have, box, ribbon and medal bar

Christophe

It is noted how the frack medal bar and ribbon bar differ. I love how the pre-1934 medal bar is frack with ALL of the Saxon award ahead of the EK2, but the post-1934 ribbon bar is EK2 in front. (all very period and conforms with known construction techniques)

Anyone else enjoy that show of Saxon pride, and later conformity to national rules of precedence? I think that is really COOL!

Hi,

About the Saxon Frackspange, you are right. Several years ago I saw the medal, ribbon bar and Frackspange sold separatly on ebay. I missed the medal bar and the Frackspange. But by chance one of my friend has bought it and decided to sell it to me. I Have just to rebuilt it to be complete. But I have no idea where the medal bar is now. Just to say that both medal and ribbon bar have the same combo.

I have saved the photo, here is from my database

Thanks a lot, but I'm not a pure Reuß collector. I've bought all those items because there is connection with Kingdom of Saxe. But, with time I can say now that I like to collect orders from that State. :rolleyes:

Thanks Matt, note that the crown and swords device is in silver. A real gem.

Hi JB, nice display. I like a lot the purple ribbon of the Reuss peacetime medal. You need to buy some Ehrenkreuz peacetime this time :whistle:

Hi everybody,

Today is a great day for my collection. Indeed, I have received this morning the last medal I need to complete the Campe medal bar. Now it is complete. It takes me a long time but now it is finished. :jumping:

Now it's time for me to find a new gem for my collection

Heinrich XXVII, the reigning Prince of Reuss j.L. and regent of Reuss ä.L., was à la suite Saxon JB 13. 3

Also, Reuss ä.L. and the Reuss-Schleiz part of Reuss j.L. border Saxony. As an aside, here is a view at the current border on the road between Greiz and Reichenbach im Vogtland.

    • 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.
