  2. Trevor, Not sure whether all were marked but I have never seen an unmarked one. There are some other features which will help tell whether it is a Josef Rücker & Sohn or not though.
  3. Were all the Medal rings for mm92 Ostmedaille marked ?

    My WWI photo

    I collect mainly WWII German Militaria. Badges, awards, blades, photos, etc.. A few WWI German items have found their way into my collection as well. Just received this photo, it is my first WWI German photo. I did some internet researching on WWI German uniforms and guessed they are Bavarians, then a WWI German collector took a look and agreed with me. Nothing going on in this photo, just a group pic. I do think that the soldat in the front row, first on the right end has a look about him and seems rather uninterested in the whole affair.
  15. Thank you..every time I look at the cover I change my view......at the moment it's a white-hider... There's a great example in the book of a similar lid with 2 covers....one hessian (a white-hider) and the other bright orange....as if white wasn't bright enough!....it always makes me think of those classic Tommy Cooper sketches when he had split uniforms and had to keep switching hats.....perhaps that one's a bit too old for folk here....
  16. I am of the same opinion. I would say it is the Ritterkreuz 1. Klasse mit Schwertern des Königl. Württembg. Friedrichs-Orden. Thanks, Pierce!
  17. General der Panzertruppe Leo Geyr Freiherr von Schweppenburg There is nothing else listed in the Rank List. Perhaps it could be the Württemberg Friedrich Order?
  18. General der Panzertruppe Leo Geyr Freiherr von Schweppenburg - EK 2. Klasse - Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer - Ritterkreuz des Königl. Württembg. Militär-Verdienstorden - ??? - Grossherzoglich Oldenburgisches Friedrich August-Kreuz 2. Klasse - k.u.k. Österr. Militär-Verdienstkreuz 3. Klasse mit der Kriegsdekoration - Königl. Bulgarischer Tapferkeitsorden 4. Klasse, 2. Stufe
  19. I have a photo of my Great grandfather in a British army uniform in the Cape Colony. It was during or after the Xhosa Frontier Wars. I was told he was a captain. I am hoping members here can help me identify the uniform, which I hope will lead me to finding out more about Great grandfather and his army career. Thanks
  20. Generalleutnant Richard Stenzel with Croatian Order of King Zvonimir.

    Hi Mark, I am unable to see the pictures. The links provided are not working. Probably best to directly load to the site. I am sure others are having difficulty as well. Probably is what is keeping this piece from being moved. Best Regards, JustinG

    First ever purchase

    It looks like a nice Heer (army) dagger. On the blade you might find near the hilt, a maker mark or written letters; could you share that picture with us as well. This will help determine a maker for this piece. Congrats on your first piece . With "Heer Army dagger" you should be able to search all forums and search engines and look at images and such. Best Regards, JustinG
  23. Here's one from the book. An extremely clean Chief Wardens helmet.....it had been stored for years under a custom-made cloth cover which took the brunt of the storage wear and tear. The cover itself looked as if it was once a rich dark blue colour and MAY have been that of an Incident Officer role. However it could also have been used to hide the white helmet for fear of identification from planes or during the expected invasion....both of which were concerns amongst some higher ranked white-helmetted personnel.
