  5. Greetings, Well, I did deviate a bit. I purchased a large grouping of Mützenbänder from non-Jutland combatants and I thought I would start a thread showing our collections of S.M.S, K.u.K and imperial time Mützenbänder. I look forward to seeing what tallies you all have in your collections. Here we go:
  6. Thanks for looking at my collection. I wish to say that I am going to put up items from my collection and share them with you fine individuals. If you have an item that you would like to share or a question on a particular piece that is not in my collection, I humbly ask that you do not post it here. Please start a separate thread. Comments, if you have other questions or requests are appreciated. I am posting this because on several other sites, others have jumped in and posted their items or asked opinions about originality of an item like a Mützenband or a Schiffswappen. I thank you for looking at my collection. Greetings, Well, It is about time to share some of my collection. I recently acquired this grouping from another long time collector. I am grateful to him for giving me the opportunity to acquire this. This ship has a well chronicled history. A unit that operated very successfully despite being up against incredible odds. If you have never heard of this ship or it's exploits, there are several good books out there to check out. On the lifebouy, the words SMS Emden are written in Gray lettering. it is very faint and is difficult to photo but I assure you it says S.M.S Emden. Thanks, JustinG

    My WWI photo

    Thanks for sharing. The soldier on the far right, front, I agree, seems to be uninterested in the whole affair. Best Regards, JustinG

    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
  11. As the title says, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones this holiday season. Wishing you all good health, happiness and success in the years to come. To you and yours! Cheers and Prost! Best Regards, JustinG
  12. A very tasteful display. Congratulations. I was curious how the gorget was worn I had assumed it would have been much like the Feldgendarmerie. Nice job. Best Regards, JustinG
  13. Greetings, Welcome. You posted this in the imperial section. This is a EK2 from the 2nd world war. Along with a pendant flag. The book is one of Robert Ley who was the head of the German labor front. (DAF) Best Regards, JustinG
  14. A fine piece. Best Regards, JustinG

    Patriotic pencil Hindenburg.

    Wow, interesting item. Best Regards, JustinG
  16. You can post on the sales page of this forum. Actually, there is several places. Abebooks is a good site. There is nothing offensive on the cover so I think you will not have any issues with ebay if you so choose to sell it there. best regards, JustinG

    help w KC

    IMHO, It looks like a small micro 800 S&L copy, The Date size is extremely small. This is a single core cross which is not appropriate and makes me believe this is a copy. I share your skepticism. Best Regards, JustinG
  18. You will notice the photo above, there doesn't appear to be any Narvik shield on him. But he has it prominent in the photo of Reinhold Eckardt. This could also be a Reinholdt. I love how you tried to do your own research before. Could you share the source of your references? The campaign shields were symbols of honor, I can't imagine that anyone would choose not to have that shield prominently displayed on every service uniform. This is just my observation. Thanks, JustinG

    Help with Knights Cross!

    Well, I guess I'll be the first and say that this is not what I would expect to see with a period made Ritterkreuz. First off, the stamping looks like it is trying to be a S&L 4. However, from the photos you shared, the core is a 1 piece construction. This is not found on any RK regardless of maker. Would you do me a favor, would you obtain a picture where the suspension ring is placed and on the metal loops, there appears to be a stamping number within the loop; I can barely make this out but it is present. Can you ask for detailed shot of that please? Check out the thread here: You will see on all these crosses, that there is a fine seam, these were typically 3 part constructed pieces. Yours seems like it is a single piece (No seam) William Kramer (AllIKnew) posted a great picture showing that seam for the S&L piece. With how expensive these awards can be, I am glad you asked before putting down a huge chunk of money. Please next time post to the appropriate forum. You will have better luck getting an answer and the right people with the knowledge to give you the best and quick response. Best Regards, JustinG
  20. What is the case size? Just trying to see how big an award this is? Thanks for sharing. JustinG
  21. In the next page, the question was asked what the shield with the "S" and crossed swords is. Here is a great thread explaining this very thing. https://asmic.org/forum/index.php?topic=87.0 Best Regards, JustinG

  23. Hi, I am working on blending different photos. I had taken this shot while in Munich in 2010. I had remembered seeing the wartime photo of the Marienplatz. Thanks for looking. It was fun and time consuming. Best Regards, JustinG
