Hi Johan,

Can you show the reverse of your Ingria cross? Many thanx in advance!

Hello!

Here are both my crosses of Ingria, I still need the one for enlisted men.
If anyone should have one for sale, please let me know!

The merit cross is awarded 2 times and the cross for officers around 20 times.
I don´t know how many that were awarded the enlisted mens cross.

I thought this thread was about Imperial Germany? Never seen this weird cross before.

In my first post in this thread I showed my favourite imperial German piece and also my all time favourite piece which is this finnish cross.

And since Destruction wanted to see the backside I made this post instead of making a new thread in the appropriate forum section. I´m lazy… :)

Another favor

Which piece in the collection do you refer to? 🤣😅

In all honesty though, every single piece in the picture would make a fine addition to this thread.

Hi Deruelle,

Thanks for your kind words. I'm not well versed in Imp. minis, but I assume the SH is a Kommendeur mit starrer (rigid) Krone. The size is interesting, it has a diameter of 22,49mm.

The HM is equally fashinating IMO , but I'm not certain whether it's a Grand Cross (-1887) or not. The diameter corresponds pretty close to that date though, 18,84mm :D.

Chuck,

This kind of SH was from the 1807-1815 area. If it is a commander cross, only 11 were awarded at this aera. Congrats. And again, what a beauty

The medalbar of Friedrich Metze I like most....of course the ultra rare house order with swords at the ring
(unofficial awarded, because the house order with swords was not on stock) 😛

Odd to see the Saxe-Weimar non combat award in with all those combatant pieces.  There's probably an interesting story there.

He used to be Director of the Artillerie Werkstatt in Lippsatd (artillery factory).
Is it 100 % sure, that the merit cross for home merit was only a civil award or was it also awarded for important
war aid?
Metze used to fight at the front at least in 1914, before he became director.

I always love these threads, always some very interesting pieces come out. 

I have a couple of personal favorites, not sure which I like more.  Both were the most difficult for me to find, so they hold about equal weight.
