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.

wow, even if the original post is 13 years old, I would like to say something about this medal bar and the photo! It is showing Max Gutkind, as stated above.  Max Gutkind was born 1847 in Seesen,

Hi Jacky,

Per your request, below is a picture of the reverse of the star in post #48. With regard to your question as to the value, I can only point out that a similar star, but by Siebrecht, sold at Andreas Thies auction last Saturday for 2800 Euro plus 23% commission.

Best wishes,

Gentlemen,

Thank you all for the very kind comments and compliments.

Jacky - The star, which is rather highly vaulted, measures 84,5 mm.

The rest of the kids arrived home for the weekend today - pictures to follow; and Marc, we can?t say all, The Holy Grail is still out there. Stay tuned.

There are still a number of variations missing. I can not fill all of the gaps; but there are a few that we can cover. First, we have a grand cross with swords through the center.

Well Marc, you asked for it. Now, I?ve got all of these darned little white horses running around. Got to round them up, get them into the corral and the back to their various ?ranches?.

Thank you all for your interest and contributions to this thread, :beer:

Hi Sal,

Gee. I wouldn?t be so quick to knock your cross. I think that these crosses are, in their design, a classic reflection of their time; and their execution is usually of the highest level.

Take a look at post #25. The minor variations in design and finish are very interesting and it is unfortunate that so few are marked; making the various makers, as far as I know, virtually impossible to identify.

I still say that?s a pretty darned nice cross you have there, :cheers:

Best wishes,

Thanks I appreciate that...I agree...simple elegance...the design speaks for the cross with no need for bells and whistles...hopefully more will be coming to my home soon.

My Best

    • I've never smoked a single cigarette in my 62 years so I can't compare, but I can say that I like Lapsang Souchong tea, having tasted it the first time when I was 16, and a sea cadet. I'm not a Brit, though.
    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
