militaria item Prussian Merit medal, FWIII, silver
- German
This medal was introduced by King Frederick William III of Prussia (1797-1840) to award other ranks and NCOs for military galantry. However, it could also be awarded to the civil service for meritorious conduct. The difference between civil and military was apparently in the colours of the ribbon (missing here).

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 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.

militaria item Coronation medal of Ernst August Koenig von Hannover
- German
This medal (4cm) commemorates the enthronement of King Ernst August of Hanover, the last king of independent Hanover before it was absorbed into Prussia later in the 1860s. It is signed under his bust by the sculptor: 'BREHMER F.' The medal is nearly in fleur de coin condition.

militaria item Oberlaunstein veteran's union cross
- German
The top element with the imperial crown above two crossed swords and oak leaves has the logo 'Deutscher Krieger Bund' for German Warriors League (ie veterans in a military sense), whereas the cross underneath has a portrait of the emperor in silhouette and gives the name of the district, in this case Oberlaunstein.

militaria item St Johann volunteer fire brigade medal
- German
This medal, struck in silver, with the rose of Lippe borne on a shield under a municipal crown, was issued for 15 years' service, indicated by the 15 between the words 'Treue' and 'Jahrige'. Lippe is a small state near the Danish border and presumably St Johann is a town within Lippe.

militaria item Bavarian Ludwigs Kreuz, bronze
- German
Like its Prussian counterpart, this was awarded in WW1 for welfare and hospital work to civilians. However, this example appears to be made of bronze with all its original patina. The ribbon should have blue horizontal stripes in the centre white field, so this is close but not quite correct. Otherwise, the cross is in good condition.

testimonials

[From a vendor, rather than a buyer]

I'm delighted that you are happy with the badge and I hope you can sell it to someone who will value owning it.

I tried to sell it on eBay but they won't accept Nazi items. I then contacted several dealers via a Google search who mostly offered me 40-50 after some haggling. Most of the other dealers tried to conceal its true value in their replies and also lacked manners which doesn't inspire confidence.

Ultimately it's about trust. I should think that most prospective sellers have done their own research and therefore know roughly what their item is worth. You were the only dealer who had the integrity to concede that my valuation was approximately correct and I respect your comment that you can't offer this as you need to make a profit. Your honest approach is greatly appreciated and I felt comfortable taking the risk in sending it to you.

Thank you for a smooth transaction

Found the item a little on the expensive side and a bit disappointed that you were unwilling to bend a bit on the price of the Officer's Tunic Eagle (half the fun of buying, after all, is the haggling), but impressed by the speed of delivery and the quality of the item. Was well worth it in the long run...
