Wow, this is shaping up to be a great thread.

I have a pretty narrow Imperial collecting focus (Prussian combat awards from before 1918), and I've literally just narrowed my minis down by selling a few nice items at the MAX.

Here is what's left, my entire mini collection:

A really good thread indeed. I will have to dig out the small numbers I have. For now, a bit of Weimar, two unfortunately looking for a chain.

I see you already made it to PlM mini. Can we see some details?

Thank you, although I am sure it's a fraction of your mini collection.

I've sold some of the noncombatant combos I used to have, and one or two combatant chains also that had non-Prussian awards on them. And naturally I am always looking to add nice minis within the boundaries of the collection.

Yes of course. A well-worn Godet piece from the 1920s:

Surely not a fraction. Let´s say strong half. And I still don´t have PlM mini...

Very nice. That ribbon is outstandingly worn. Do you have it connected to some particular wearer? Otherwise it´s hard to say the decade. This button was used by three companies: Godet&Sohn (1923-1930), Godet-Werner (1930-33) and Godet&Sohn A.G. (1933-45, though since 1935 only for chains, with some exceptions).

Thank you for the additional info, Miro. Very interesting. So let's say "1920s or 1930s," as I don't have a name for the PLM.

"A strong half." I like that. Maybe we can see a group shot of yours in this thread too...

Probably the rarest piece in my display is the Hohenzollern House Order 4th Class with swords:

Lovely stuff guys, thanks for showing the reverses as well

Here are 3 different sizes represented: 16.25mm, 10.88mm and 8.88mm. My personal favorite is the 2nd class.

cheers

Terrific detail, even for Godet mini. I like that RAO with swords very much too. Please have me in mind with the next sale out.

Sure I will post some pieces soon, though group shot won´t be between them. I have them stored at four places, hard to put them together at once. But I have them documented separately, so you can count with me for the future.
