medals

A vast field, covering many eras and countries. Specialist reference books on every period and country can be found. One book - Price Guide: Orders and Decorations, Germany 1871-1945 by Detlev Niemann (2004) - is highly recommended (I have several in stock at £50 each plus postage).

militaria item St George medal, 4th class
- Russian
This is the lowest grade of this prestigious order, Russia's principle gallantry award from the time of the Napoleonic Wars until the 1917 revolution. It shows the image of Nicholas II on the face and on the reverse 'For gallantry' is inscribed in Cyrillic, together with the class of the medal below the serial number.

militaria item Bundesrepublik horse breeding award, gold class
- German
This would have been mounted on a wooden plaque, hence the holes at the corners. The design is taken from the Nazi era award, whose main difference is a capital 'R' directly under the middle feet of the horse.

militaria item War Service cross with swords, 2nd class
- German
This could well be a ground find, or perhaps dug out of someone's attic, because only maybe 25% of the original gilt finish survives. However, it has the number 74 punched into the ring, which indicates the maker Carl Meurer & Sohn from Oberstein. These crosses rarely have any maker's mark, which makes up somewhat for the condition.

militaria item Iron Cross, 1st class, 1914
- German
This is the classic gallantry award for WW1, given when the award of the EK2 was deemed insufficient recognition. Hitler wore one, earned as a despatch runner! This cross is maker marked 'KO', a prolific maker, particularly of 2nd class Iron Crosses.

On 29 November 1915, bars were authorised for 2nd, 3rd and 4th awards of the same class of the medal.

militaria item Signum Laudis medal, silver
- Austrian
Instituted in 1890 for outstanding services in war and peace, this medal used the red and white horizontally striped ribbon of the Medal for Bravery (as in this case) when awarded in wartime to officers, or a plain red ribbon for non-military persons of rank. In peacetime, the plain red ribbon was used in all cases.

The front has a magnificent image of the fortress at Ferrara, which is a lost-wax casting with a certain amount of hand finish.

testimonials

Very pleased with it [the bayonet].

R P, UK, 31.08.2017

Just a brief note to confirm that the sabre has been delivered today. All is as it should be. I have to say I’m impressed with the ‘custom’ packaging, obviously essential in your line of business. I have made a very quick inspection of the sword & it fully lives up to your accurate description, very pleased with the purchase.
