nononononononononono!

Just around 80 knights with lions awarded and You want to see one?

For zinc relations You speak about something rarer than a EK knights cross with oaks and swords!!!

Seriously, I have no real one; I know Werner Nickel has a "normal knight" on a Medal bar.

I can just show You some of my 5 ribbon bars with this cross.

Best regards

Daniel

How I like this cross. It's a pleasure for my eye. I haven't got it in my collection. I've never seen this cross for sale, h?las, triple h?las :( . May be one day, if I am a lucky man.

Wild card, do you have the case for this cross ?

Many thanks for sharing it with us.

Deruelle,

Thank you very much. I am sorry that I can not fulfill your wish for a cased example. Below is the best I can do.

Also, Bob Hunter, yes, the finishing work on those little lions (with those curved tails) had to be a real challenge.

Best to you both,

Wild Card

Hope nobody minds that I resurrect this thread since it pertains to the knights cross.

Does anybody have figures on the amount awarded with Lions during its existence or better yet from the 1st half of the 19th century.

Appreciate any help that you can provide.

Hello everybody,

After doing some research, I have found 51 officers from Wurttemberg who received WK3XL during WW1 and 9 Saxon officers. What about the others Kingdom ? If someone has something, thanks for sharing informations with us.

They are very elegant in their simple style.

A question does the sword attachment by the rings mean it is from Eduard Foehr?

This is an amazing bar... but at the time it was made, this man would have been in his 80's, at least!
