Peter, could it not be just the Friedrich Kreuz? If attempting to be a 1st class, why not?, even though not official the pin backs were made, why not a nadel?

You mean that single EK2 1914 pendant? It is button type from 1933 - 1945.
In 30s both Godet & Co and Godet & Sohn started to use also narrower ribbons (and/or started to omit them completely). This ribbon is just narrower (9 mm contrary to 15 mm as on others), so the overall look is different.

Any Imperial mini thread is bound to have a lot eye-candy for Godet fans, and this one does not disappoint.

Everyone: great stuff so far.

Jesse, it's not only attempting to be a 1st class Friedrich Kreuz, the size (16mm) makes it that by definition IMHO. The non-official status of the 1st class was the reason for previous comments and I was merely interested in your thoughts on this forum.

Miro, on occasions one gets exposed with their pants down, this is one of them. I should of course have noticed the difference in size of the ribbons

cheers
Peter

Here's yet another tricky one, a 16mm Hohenzollern that didn't receive the elaboration I expected. Perhaps better luck here.

cheers
Peter

Hi Peter,

I like that little eagle and the marks are correct for Godet, but I doubt it's supposed to be a miniature of the Hohenzollern Adler der Komtur as it lacks the correct design (no halo, no shield, for example).

In my opinion it's likely a small patriotic piece.

Thanks Trewor, the lack of the shield made me very blabbergasted and your theory seems quite plausible. It turned out to be an expensive patriotic trinket, but I like it.

cheers
Peter

I like it too Godet made a full-size brooch of this same design. I will try to find photos of it.

Excellent and fun thread!

A Gebr. Godet PlM Mini, of a type I don't think I have seen for certain before:



Wonder if it could be an example of the No. 6 from your 1930s Gebr. Godet catalog, Greg?

Here is the gold button:



Amazingly, even at this scale the eagles were individually soldered on (!) The cross body is die-struck.

Thread about that type of button, is yours 2 marked 'A. M & Cie - Paris' on back?

Same mark as on the Prinzen EKI, also found on other smaller Godet items. Other mark looks like a remnant of a 938 stamp.
