Darrell-- you simply need to get an EPSON scanner. NO OTHER kind allows YOU to set size and dpi to exactly what YOU want and not its preset so you have to resize baloney. 31% at 1200 dpi? No problem. 387% at 150dpi, sure. Zoom in before scanning and get the image in one take, none of that 53 steps "editing" labor. I just got a "Perfection 4490" in October, but they're probably up to 5774 by now. :cheeky: Hard to FIND a scanner anymore that is JUST a scanner and not a combination global positioning satellite, fax machine, clothes press, and home entertainment center. :banger:

:beer:

Amazingly I have an EPSON :rolleyes::cheeky:

However an older model Perfection 610 and can only get up to 600 dpi.

What's your model?

I bought it 3 years ago - it is just a scanner does no other tricks but it has an attachement to scan slides. The price then was just under $ 200 Can.

Thanks. Maybe I'll go shopping this weekend :jumping:

Hi,

And few days ago nobody want to buy a badge in Gold with 31, start price 40 Euros :o

Uwe

Hi Uwe, I'm new at collecting in general and collecting sports badges in particular, so assumingt they are genuine, would the DRA gold and DRA bronze that I bought for 51 euros be a good or not so good price?

Hi Uwe, I waited till I received my reply about whether DRA badges are or should be mostly original, and I looked at some other prices at some dealer sites, and took a chance and bid for them. My German is sadly not as good as it once was in my youth, but here is the description from the seller -

Einmal in Gold mit dem Hersteller Hofjuwelier,Eugen Marcus und in Bronce mit dem Herst.H.Wernstein L?bstedt+DRGM.

Hi,

it's long ago, but I want to add some more informations.

Rick showed his fantastic 0.900 Gold badge: "I wonder how much the German Olympic Committee would offer me for the ONLY one in the entire world?"

But I know now, that there are some more of these Gold badges in gilded 0.900 silver. And because there exist two different versions, I don't think, that they were awarded badges.

I have two of these badges with the same stamp 0.900, but with 2 different needle sytems. Please compare left the example from Rick and next the two badges in my collection.

Dear sir, I have a question. The physical fitness medal was established in 1913. Has it been awarded in WW1? I haven't seen any of the photos in 1918. .

Hi 1812 Overture,

it was established in 1913, awarded in 1913 and 1914, and in 1914 stopped because of the war. Further awards were not made until 1919.

The first three years only awards in Bronze and Gold, since 1920 also in Silber (based on the first regulations).

Uwe

Thank you for your answer. Can you show me pictures of the badges issued before the WW1 war?

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • 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 .
