Due to some family/work obligations on top of a fairly nasty bout of food poisoning, I missed the SOS this year.  I was wondering if anything interesting turned up.

I did manage to snag this piece a couple of days before the show (marked J.L. on the bottom arm) so, it wasn't a complete loss.

Nice pickup! The Orden vom Heiligen Michael is one of my favorits.

Good to see an authentic Michael, after German ebay is currently flooded with probably-not-so-good-ones. See, here's one without crown; I'm not sure if they're also doing the higher grade, however...

The ebay seller, furchtlosundtreu14, seems to be part of a "network" for not so nice pieces, together with others like aubanan12, benkosi, bogdangapol, cairde32, egon4791, ichverkaufealles12345, galec-galec, inge7591ch, kasperle369, koelnerdomplatz09, kokor00, lillyfee-1995, mansamusa, orehilas321, pueppchenundtuch, salihero, sanktvith2011, slimcase1958, sterog62, trumeko, trumeko28 and wilro11... ebay was more fun in earlier years.

:mad:

Right Sascha, that guy is a terrible purveyor of crap. I see the same stuff being offered every week, and apparently there are buyers for this Schrott.

I thought you might be exaggerating, a little bit, but here is the next one, offered by another of the mentioned sellers.

By the way, sorry for hijacking your thread! Wasn't this also supposed to be for other members' SOS finds? I wasn't there, of course, so cannot contribute anything...

Well, he does say "Das Original ist viel besser als die Fotos" (no reference to which original...)... 🤪

Please notice there was a 2nd class, the neck cross of this order, sold as well recently.

This was no piece I would have wanted for my collection... would you have?!

:shame:
