Many of you may remember my true Imperial love was always the St. Henry Order.

A dear old friend has offered me some Saxon bars that were once in my collection, anonymous bars, but St. Henry nonetheless...... I had a settled on a St. Henry bar when this image showed up in my in box.

I could not remember who I sold this too, but it has the possibility of coming back home to me.


So what would you choose?

St. Henry, or this little beauty?

If you can at all: BOTH !!

Personally, I like the "Saxon trio" as well. 

But that also depends on whether you already have a Saxon trio w/EK2 in your collection.  Major point; the HEM w/1914 clasp that is MOUNTED must be somewhat rare.

The Saxon Trio is nice, but it is not nearly as rare as the other.  Assuming Cristophe hasn't already cornered the market, you could relatively easily come across another bar with the trio at some point, but not likely the other.

That said, my own preference is combatant decorations to front-line soldiers and junior officers, so I would personally prefer the trio.  I suppose it really comes down to what sort of decorations you prefer in your collection.

I don`t understand the meaning of a part of your posting but i think it means that you will buy both.

If yes - you are a typical collector.

But i would have done the same.... and don`t tell it your wife. :D

    • 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.
