militaria item Iron Cross, 1st class, 1914
- German
This a privately manufactured piece from the 1939-45 period and made as a replacement for an earlier lost Cross from WW1. It has the circular spinner on the reverse, typically found on 1939 EK1 examples. The Cross is of concave form, traditionally manufactured with an iron centre and silver rims and back.

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 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 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.
