This is an interesting button hole pin reading "zur erinnerung an 1870" and a Maltese or Iron Cross in the center. I have actually seen a lot of fake enamel examples of this pin but didn't know there really was such a thing. This war was a rather quick French thumping. This is a painted example and I have included obverse photos both with and without flash to show the most detail possible. Cool item very reminiscent of later Third Reich membership pins.
This sword stand was made by a good friend of mine who is half carpenter and half artist. The model is the Go in okween wood. It holds five swords. 16 1/4'' L x 14 1/4''H x 11''W. While this sword stand is available he does take and even encourages custom requests. In addition to standard woods he likes to use exotic woods such as bubinga - an African hardwood, okween - another African hardwood, African mahogany, and rosewood (When available). Please inquire for custom requests.

To naval veterans this is a poignant monument as the U-Boat service was all volunteer and suffered an estimated 90% MIA/KIA rate...
