After seeing great collections, i decided to show off my small display. I don't have much space nor my own room, so this is the part of my collection that my wife agrees on to display in our living room. :). It is constantly subject to change. So this is the state 5 minutes ago.

Regards,
Stephan

They are both different...What about the different neck ribbon at the front ect? Is that because they are both from a different time era?

Having the militaria out in the open as part of your household decor is incredible! Also, and I'm sure I'm not alone, I thank you for posting the two MOHs. Always nice to see some closeups of these incredible pieces.

Thanks Ken,
It's quite an unusual household decor and quite a few people are astonished when they visit our home for the first time :D.
But i would like to have a room for the collection itself or a building.

Regards,
Stephan

I have a question. How heavy are those MoH's? I've always been curious.

Very, very nice to say the least. I just wonder how you came to own TWO MoH! Nice AB display too, BTW. Love to see, and drool, over what others have in their "war rooms".

Adam, in my opinion it is no different to other medals the same size.
The Purple Heart is heavier than the MoH.

Thanks Brian,

Well, if i would start collecting now, i wouldn't have them bought. But I got them in my earlier days when i wanted just a MoH for my collection to have the top award in it.
Now i've shifted my interest to researchable pieces, where the man behind the item is the important factor, not the piece itself.

But i have them now and i have to say these medals still look good.

Oh and these are free to sell and buy here in Germany. You can see them frequently on shows.

Regards,
Stephan

Fantastic collection. I also love the 2 MOH's. I love the fact Germany can buy our MOH, and the USA can't.
I have a friend who has 23 MOH's on display in his place. YES, that is 23 MOH's. All named with complete uniforms and decorations.
The place is called Michigan's Own.

Thanks for the praise.
I'd love to have my own room, but since i live in an apartment and my wife needs the extra room as an office, i have to hide most of my collection in the closet and elswhere. :( But i'm nevertheless happy with the display in my living room

Regards,
Stephan

Hi, I've decided to show all of my collection here now.
Most of the things you will see, are already shown in other sections, so there will be no description, just for your viewing pleasure. And it is also easier to see all the things i own in one place. This topic will grow over a period of time when new things are added.
This is the latest view at my space.
