    Odd Lippe doc/post

    Interesting that the Principality posted it out to him without any sort of covering, I assume this must have been standard procedure.

    Odd Lippe doc/post

    Richard, Great internet find. Thanks for hunting that one down and sharing. I agree yours does seem to be some sort of award document, it looks in really good condition as well. Nice item to own.

    Odd Lippe doc/post

    The post card picture is of Adolf II, Prince of Schaumburg-Lippe: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adolf_II,_Prince_of_Schaumburg-Lippe I cannot make out most of the writing on the document, but it seems to come from or belong to someone from Bückeburg, which is a town in the old principality of Schaumburg-Lippe. Dated 23rd February 1914. Sorry not much help I am afraid.
  6. Jerry, once again thanks for the info and for the pictures.
  7. Jerry, I have seen this type of lug as well for a UK MK1 helmet, is it correct?
  8. Mariniss, Here is a link below that you could have a look for a comparison which might help: Regards, Graham
  9. A couple of my wound badges, these are the 'Cut out' types. A Silver IWB marked E.S.(maybe for the manufacturer Eugen Schmidhäußler, Pforzheim?) If anybody knows for sure please can you let me know. Thanks.

    1870 Godet EK1

    Thanks Gordon. I hope you got a fair price for it.

    BWB Maker KB

    I think the manufacturer KB is Koch & Bergfeld of Bremen.

    Two cased MVK3 Bayern

    I think the case on the left is for a 3rd class with a crown. The one on the right is a 3rd class without a crown. Whereas both medals shown are without crowns.

    1870 Godet EK1

    A stunning Godet 'Type B' with its core still intact. Do you still own it?
  18. Another: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunkirk_Medal
  19. Hodge, I agree with Ben and think believe your cross is a Jacob Leser Type 3 with a matching case. Regards, Graham

    Rudolph Singule EK1, a speacial piece

    Amiklic1, Great information and collection. The engraved EK1 in the case looks like a sandcasted Johann Wagner & Söhne. Does it have any makers marks on it? Regards, Graham
  21. Hope you enjoy these few UK WW1 medals I have collected over the years. Firstly the Military Cross(MC):
