No. This ribbon has thin white edges like the Annexation of Czechoslovakia medal. The St. Vladimir does not have white edges.

Dotten it is, then. So, I just need to find out who Hauptmann Dotten was as he would have been one of Gotthard Sachsenberg's mates, as a Flieger-Abteilung commander in Kampfgeschwader Sachsenberg.

Thank you. That's what I read too. But, so far, I haven't been able to find a Hauptmann Dotten listed anywhere. He would likely have been in either Jasta 7 or Marine Jagdgeschwader during WWI.

Read a signature

As much as I've tried, I can't decipher the signature of the FFA425 Abteilung-Führer.

If one of the German members could be so kind, could you possibly tell me what the name is, please?

Thanks...

In the link, the sash badge appears to be gold which is promising. Also, the RAO riband is double-sided with chased barrel hinge joints which is also promising.

However, given the rarity, I'm...

The fact that the breast star just has a J G & S mark and not the Godet maker disk in the center reverse one normally sees on Godet-made stars also bothers me. Although, that in itself is not enough...

These Godet combined order grand cross breast stars have always been a minefield. Producing these concoctions was a favorite past-time of Ernst Blass in the 1970s and 80s. Given his strong connection...

Is it possible that these were used as the centerpiece on a small Flieger-verein pennant? I have seen photos of 1920s veterans carrying such a flag. In any case they are quite interesting and...

Interesting info. I got my information from one that's for sale on the Philipp Militaria site. So, I'm sure you're right and I'm wrong.

Firstly, it's not WWI, but a 1920s veteran's pole-top. Secondly, I have owned a few of these and IMO I think this is a cast repro. Even if authentic, the price is way off.
