    The first one escapes me for the moment, but #2 is the Prussian Order of the Crown, #3 is the Austrian Franz Joseph Order and #4 is the Oldenburg Order of Duke Peter Friedrich Ludwig.

    Thanks for the help Jeff. The next question is what is the approximate value?

    The first one is the Hessen-Kassell Wilhelm Order.

    Clyde,

    Current German price guide values:

    Hessen-Kassel Wilhelm Order, commander 3100 Euro (should be in gold)
    Prussia Crown Order, 2cl neck badge 4250 Euro (should be in gold)
    Austria Franz Joseph Order, commander US$1500
    Oldenburg House Order of Duke Peter Friedrich Ludwig, commander 2250 Euro in gold; 900 in silver-gilt

    Book value runs a little high on Prussian and Oldenburg awards.

    Today the Euro is worth US$1.39

    Thanks again Jeff. These four are going to the local junk auction today.

    Isn’t the 2nd one a 3rd class breast badge? (Crown Order)

    The relative size makes me think that it’s a neck badge. Seeing the loop or getting the dimensions would answer that for sure.

    As close as I can measure it is 52mm x 52mm.

    52mm makes it a neck badge (the small suspension ring should also be in the plane of the cross).

    My kind of junk auction!
