    The Officer’s decoration of the Franz Joseph Orden, that is a pin-back cross, can be found either in gold or gilt bronze (rarely, also in gilt silver).

    A gold piece with green enamelled crown’s pendalia (signifying the War Decoration or Kriegsdekoration) ranks among the rare ones and its price can vary, between the 2.000,-/2.500,- Euro. Of course can happen to find one for a lower price… or for a higher one.

    Gilt bronze pieces are not very difficult to find, and the price can be around the 1.000,- / 1.500,- Euro.

    Best wishes,

    Enzo

    Hello Megan,

    nice to read from you here too. Regarding the Fattovich sales, I’ve just emailed you about.

    I hope that discussions on the Orders and Decorations of Austria-Hungary would start here too.

    Best wishes,

    Enzo

    Hello,

    I will be glad to be of any help regarding the study and research about the Orders & Decorations of the former Austro-Hungarian monarchy.

    By the way, many of the medals illustrated in Dan Ragsdale’s (a.k.a. “Joseph v. Falkenstien”) book and indicated as “Fattovich Collection” (having been part of the large and beautiful collection of the late, Venetian/Dalmatian gentleman), have been auctioned in Turin during 2015.

    All the best,

    E.C.

    The "dow" in the Bermondt-Avaloff corps, had a similar badge, but the original pieces I’ve had the chance to see in the past, where usually fitted with a vertical, hinged pin and catch.

    This screwback badge looks like a polish regimental badge, of later manufacture (but difficult to ascertain from a picture.

    Best wishes,

    Would it be possible to see a picture of this medal?

    I don’t remember any official Italian award with this motto.

    Best wishes,

    Hello,

    I admit, I’ve been absent from the Forum, so I’ve missed all the new things happened…

    I live in Northern Italy and I’m a collector of Imperial Austrian Orders & Decorations. My interests are also in the honour systems of Albania and the former (or still existing) socialist countries.

    I hope to be of any help and to enjoy searching through this fine Forum.

    Best wishes,

    Enzo
