ASSORTEDMEDALS #38935C SS Presentation Quedlinburg Award

This SS Award is not a conventional medal meant to be worn, but rather is in the form of a boxed presentation medal that intended to be displayed by the recipient. These presentation medals were ordered specially by Himmler and as such are very rare.

The Quedlinburg Award was originally designed to commemorate the death of the great German king Heinrich der Vogler, who lived from 919 through 936. Himmler (ridiculously) fancied himself a descendant of this man, and was quick to incorporate him into the ham-handed pastiche of Teutonic mythology that he liberally slathered over the SS.

There was apparently an SS rally of some kind in Quedlinburg on July 2nd 1936 which is commemorated by this award.

This example is in very choice condition, having a raised profile of Heinrich with a church in the background. To the right of the profile is a set of SS runes. Around three of the edges of the medal are the words, “Quedlinberg Heinrich Konig der Deutschen 919-936”. The award is stamped “835” on the reverse.

This award is accompanied with a certification issued on February 23rd, 2008 by SS Honor Ring specialist/guru Don Boyle. This certificate was drawn up for the late Matt Caldrone, who sadly passed away last year.

This rare piece represents an outstanding opportunity for the serious SS collector.

Landestirol 1. Alpiner Gaisberg Segelflug Wettbetwerb 1935”. Inside is an open enamel Austrian eagle topped with a crown. The reverse of the badge has a straight pin with a barrel hinge and catch.

The second medallion is slightly bigger than a silver dollar and is quite heavy, being of solid bronze. It depicts a glider flying over a mountain range with some birds off to the right. It is marked “Erster Alpiner Gaisberg Segelflug 1935”. A fine medallion here, probably meant to display on a table.

Near Mint. $50.00

ASSORTEDMEDALS #36978C Large Pour le Merit Medallion

This large Pour le Merit Medallion is constructed with a base of steel. The medallion is quite large, measuring about four inches wide.

It features a Maltese cross bordered legs and pebbled centers. Between the legs of the cross are Prussian eagles with crowns on their heads. In the center is the cypher “FR”, which would be for “Frederick Rex”, the king who initiated the Blue Max award.

There is a loop at the top of the medal for attachment. I do not know what this medallion would have been used for; perhaps it has attached to some form of trophy but I can't be certain. At any rate it is very good looking period item, perfect for someone wanting a Blue Max but not able to afford the genuine article.

Excellent. $295.00

ASSORTEDMEDALS #34403 1936 Winter Olympics Badge

This Olympics Badge is really a great looking ornament. These badges were used during the winter Olympics that were held in Garmisch in 1936. The top of the badge features a nice looking edelweiss flower positioned over a banner. The banner is curved upward in an arch and has enameled writing designating the exact spot of the Olympics, “GARMISCH PARTENKIRCHEN”. Beneath the arch is the five intertwining Olympic circles all done in blue, yellow, black, green and red.

The badge shows quite a bit of patina and some age but it is still in nice condition. The reverse of the badge has a safety pin like catch. There is some writing on the medal block that secures the catch but it is difficult to see because of the patination. A great piece to display with some other Olympic memorabilia.

Excellent. $150.00

ASSORTEDMEDALS #34410 Case Only for French Award of 1918

MILLS / 1918”. There is a steel push-in metal catch on the front edge. The inside lid of the box is padded in a red satin and the lower portion of the inside of the box is red velvet and is cut out for a medal with a ribbon.

The inner liner is finished in padded silk. The lower portion has a dark blue velvet bottom with no cut out for the medal so it must have sat flush in the case. A very nice box here if you have the award.

Near Mint. $40.00

ASSORTEDMEDALS #34496 Case Only for Distinguished Flying Cross

This case measures about 6½ inches by 3½ inches. This box is covered in a blue grained leatherette and the surface of it is quite dirty which is probably just dust that has accumulated. It should be fairly easy to clean up. The box has a double border of wiggly lines that go around the surface and in the center is the name of the award in gold embossing, “Distinguished / Flying Cross”. The inside is a padded silk material which has a recess in the center. The lower portion is a lined tan velvet which has a separation line about an inch from the top. There is also a tab below the separation line and a cut out above the separation line. If you have a Distinguished Flying Cross I can’t imagine that this box would not go nicely with it.

Excellent. $35.00

The swivel ribbon is colored purple, blue, tan, pink, and red in the center; and there is a bar with Japanese writing below, which keeps the metal secure against the swivel ring.

On the opposite side of the medal there are two armor clad warriors pulling on the snout of a large crocodile. The ribbon is attached and it is a striped variety being red, white and green on the right and on the left white and black. The ribbon has a safety pin sewn to the reverse. I doubt that this pin is original to the piece.

Excellent Plus. $135.00

ASSORTEDMEDALS #28937C Cased Austrian Military Merit Award

The case of this Austrian Military Merit Award is quite important looking, being square on three sides and rounded on one end. It is in a red leatherette covering with black bottom. There is also double-line decoration which goes around the top border. Embossed in gold into the center of the upper lid is a double headed eagle with a crown above the bird. This is the symbol of the Austrian monarchy.

The inside lid is of white satin and is padded. Embossed into the satin material in gilt is the maker name “zimbler wien VII”. Beneath this is the title “K.u.K.hof-lieferant”. This literally means “supplier to the Emperor”. Beneath this is the street address “Burggasse 33”. Apparently, Zimbler of Vienna was well though of. The inside bottom of the case is cut out to accept the award and is in a black velvet material. The award is a beautiful medallion style medal, being about the size of a fifty-cent piece. In the center, there is a raised out bust of the king with beard. Above the medallion is a replica of the Austrian crown and then there is a ring which accepts the triangular shaped red and white striped ribbon. Applied to the ribbon is a set of crossed swords. A most impressive medal here.

Excellent. $250.00

ASSORTEDMEDALS #31639 Model 1916 French Observer’s Badge

This Model 1916 French Observer’s Badge is a round circular shape, having a border of oak leaves on the left side and laurel leaves on the right side. On the open center, stretched across on a 45-degree angle, is a star with one wing attached to it. The wing is well feathered and the star has good ridges to each of the point arms. The reverse of the badge is unmarked and it has two closed loops, one at each end of the diameter. There is no pin in-between, and I’m not sure whether one would have been there. Perhaps these were sewn to the tunic?

Excellent. $80.00

ASSORTEDMEDALS #29333C Imperial Good Conduct Medal

This Imperial Good Conduct Medal consists of a blue satin ribbon background which is lined and also has borders of black. Positioned in the center of the ribbon is a bronze bar which has the letters raised out “F.W.III.”. These letters stand for Friedrich Wilhelm, who was the son of Kaiser Wilhelm I and the father of Kaiser Wilhelm II. Apparently, this good conduct medal may have been instituted to honor Frederick, as he only lived for 90 days after being made Kaiser. A nice looking medal here.

Good. $50.00
