My recent acquisition

Recommended Posts

these are excellent, quality-made crosses, and now you need the double screwback version to keep it company! and then all the different hallmark variants, lol!

on this particular cross the screwpost has been replaced at some point. very nice to see it still has the retaining disc intact, as many crosses i've encountered often have this element missing, for some odd reason

I have previously stated, this is my first screw back and certainly not the last.. Tis a slippery slope for sure with these. 

I certainly will keep a look out for the other variants.  Thank you!





Thank you!   From what I've seen, there has been no reference to DOV stamping in particular.  I'm only dipping my toe in uncharted waters...Anyone know of any others with different stamps or markings?

I'm intrigued.

I read that the DOV had 50 sales points/branches, many in occupied countires, where officers could buy anything from awards to uniforms to map cases... just some info of interest.....

AND you could also invest with them...here is an early document that shows a modest return of 4% interest



and here is their company logo from the 20s/30s...i've never noticed it before so i thought i'd share it.

it's a rather unique design

    • 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.
