Image request / article on the Schaumburg-Lippe Kreuz für Treue Dienste

Recommended Posts

Hello Guys,

As the topic says, I'm writing an article on the Schaumburg-Lippe Kreuz für Treue Dienste. Not a bad way to keep myself busy while this Corona mess in ongoing.. 🙃 The text is pretty much done and all I need now are some images on the 1870 and 1914 crosses, singles and in medal-bars, minis (I've already got some nice ribbonbar photos from Daniel) and of people wearing them. For printing quality, 300 DPI resolution is the minimum.

Seeing how rare the 1870 crosses are, any photos or even a nudge toward some photos would be greatly appreciated!

Any photos you share with me for the article you will naturally be credited and you will get an electronic copy of the article once it's published. The venue is not yet certain, it will be either be the "Finnish Soldier" magazine (there's a tenuous link to Finland via the Ostsee-division) or the Journal of the Finnish Numismatic Association.

Thanks in advance! :)

    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.  
    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian
