The 1914/1918 Ehrenkreuz

Article about: by danhashman There are those little crossed swords on the ribbon. Is there something to tell about that? I often see Ehrenkreuze whose ribbons have no little swords attached to it, i guess

    No, actually, more for protection against sunlight. Although, truth be told... should I ever attempt to frame them and hang them on the dining room wall instead of the mediterranean scenes and ceramic ornament thingies, I am certain I would meet with some very serious resistance, indeed.

    It's a shame because your collection framed would be quite a sight!

    Trouble is, how much room can you leave for the additions that will inevitably come along......?

    I have the same situation with my Mutterkreuz but my Minesweepers will have a definite cut off point. Unfortunately I haven't decided what point that will be......

    One more little thing, just in the mail - Another single ribbon bar for the Frontkämpfer cross; measuring 15 x 18 mm, this one is smaller and narrower than those posted before:

    Dear Andreas
    Your collection is unique ! Its even better detailed and large from a museum collection !
    A great assistance for collectors like us who just make the first steps as militaria item collectors.
    Congratulations for your free time the courage and the money you spend till now.
    It would be grate if one day you could make a picture (even from distance) including all your items.
    Just to have an idea of the size of your collection with one shot !

    A few more acquisitions with which I am quite pleased, all of the Hinterbliebenen class.

    First, a full-size cross which the recipient has mounted for wear in a very simple manner:

    And here are three different buttonhole ribbons for civilian wear. Two are mounted as ribbon bows [Bandschleifen] and one is a rather small (14 mm wide) ribbon roll [Bandrolle]

    Indeed. And excellent macro photos depicting every little detail.
    Looks like you are using a source of light too, instead of the camera's flash, right?

    Thanks, Chris!

    No flash, but no artificial light source either; it's really just natural late-afternoon ambient light. I always take these photographs with the items placed on the back cover of a linen-bound book laid down on a windowsill. The camera is a 7.1 Megapixel Pentax M30 digital cam.

    More... Yet another Kriegsteilnehmer cross, yet another mounting style (with quite a substantial reverse set-up), yet another manufacturer (KM&F):

    A very simple mounting style, with miniature ribbons folded and sewn into flat loops and fitted with safety pins. Top, a Frontkämpfer and a Kriegsteilnehmer cross and bottom, a 1914 EK2/Kriegsteilnehmer cross combination:
