How do you like this very special medal bar from Brunswick?    

Another small contribution from my side... It´s the medalbar of Friedrich Metze, director of the Artilleriewerkstatt Lippstadt.

Well, I have nothing great to add to this brilliant (and I mean it!) thread, but I like my little group, directly from the family and almost "unused" as issued. Cheers

My Komturkreuz in Gold of the Hausorden Heinrich des L?wen...

Your stuff, Andreas, is really breathtaking... how many RK with swords in the middle were given: 5? There was also one on Thies' auction today, "am Einzelbandschnalle". Great also and extremely rare the spange "old style". About what date would you situate your medal bar?

I almost forgot this one. I do not own this anymore, but luckily took some pictures in June 1994. Too bad we did not have scanners and digital cameras those days:

OK, I think it is now time for certain individuals to bring on some big guns :P

Okay, I don't own a single Henry the Lion medal, and probably never will. Now that Andreas has has totally ruined by day by displaying all that beauty :blush: I'll just post the nicest photo I have of a Henry the Lion. I've shared this picture before, it's from a fairly recent Hermann Historica auction.

Wow! I love the enamel! Love those Steckkreuz!!

But back to some common items. There are examples of KVK1s from all periods - WW1, 20s/30s, Third Reich and 57er. The cross below the etui is the one that belongs in it.

    • 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.
