Show off your medal cases, not the medals

Recommended Posts

Hi Wild Card, thanks an amazing looking cross, never seen it before, I have an 1870 sanitatsverdienstkreuz in my collection, pretty boring compared to this though

Regards alex😏

Hi Jabab1914,

If you don't mind me asking a question.  why do the same St Henry medals have different size cases. Did they become smaller as during the war, or are hey from different time periods?

I would like to add two more cases to our thread which you nay find unique. The red  case is to a Bavarian golden Ludwig's medal for arts & science while the black case is to a silver Bavarian Ludwig's medal for industry. As you can see, the design of these cases does not conform to the pale blue with the written description theme which we commonly associate with Bavarian awards.

I hope that you like them.

Wild Card

    • 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.
