Hello Eric,

I'm sorry, this is not an original. Originals were only made by Leser and 
Hemmerle and they are all very early productions of excellent quality. The 
front medallions were always made of gold, 3-part at Hemmerle, 1-part at Leser.
Your piece is from the 
manufacturer Weiss and was subsequently upgraded.
A total of 146 pieces were awarded, of which 138 were on war merit ribbon 
and 8 on war ribbon. 
MVKs 1st class with crown and swords have been imitated for many decades to 
the detriment of collectors. Loaned originals must always look like the 
pictures below.

First a peace by Hemmerle, next from Leser, finally, a detailed 
picture of the Leser-cross where you can see the excellent quality 
of the enamelled gold medallions.

Many Greetings from Bavaria

Dear all

Here I got one MVK 1st Class with Crown in gold color for your Review.

not sure if the color and details looks ok? All comments are very welcome,

thank you






Walter is 100 % right.
You've got a fake.
Your first class with swords from Leser is also not a original. Compare the letters of the medaillons to the cross from Walter . The cypher "L" won't be made of gold.
This classes of MVK are often faked.
Regards Andreas

    • 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.
