Unidentified Monogram

Hello, ALL,

I am a new member to this forum. I am a history enthusiast and and a member of a reenactment group called the Great War Historical Society. My main interest and regiment I portray is the Bavarian 2. Chevaleguer "Thurn und Taxis". I have been researhing an original Chevaleguer Pikelhaube (Spiked Helmet) that has a monogram on the silk lining. So far, I cannot identify it. Would anyone know who's monogram this is?

Has anyone seen a cypher for either of the Wessex? I assume they have them.

Cypher / Monogram cursive V under crown

Hello all
This cypher is on what appears to be an early to mid 19 Century British pattern of cavalry sword. It reminds me of the English gunmaker's V under Crown but it isn't. It is really annoying me, as I have seen this cypher before but can not remember where .

Anyone recognize it? It would need to date 1821-1860 or thereabouts.

Thanks
Travlur

Monogram of which Monarch??

Good evening,

I obtained interesting watch with Royal Monogram on back case.
It's french work, excellent quality work, about 1840-1860.
I cannot find out whose monogram it is.

It's too late for French Ludovicus, the Louis XVIII died in 1824 and they had fleurs-de-lis at crown.
From the German / Scandinavian states only Ludwig II Bavarian looks similar, but still slightly differs..

Would be grateful for any opinion, thanks in advance.

Is it by any chance Dutch? the Dutch Crown is described as "a bejeweled golden ring with golden fleurons and pearls, eight rising arches studded with pearls and topped with an orb with a cross. The crown is not lined with velvet." (It was later lined with red silk.) - That's the best match I can make to the crown part of the monogram.
I am no expert! and will be interested to learn more

The Greeks also used the orb and cross, as did Maria Pia of Portugal. Your watch could be engraved with a military cypher. Wish I knew more about cyphers.

I believe it's the monogram of Leopold II of Belgium.

Thanks all for your help.

French Louis XIV - Louis XVIII have different crowns with lily flower. Chateau de Versailles has Louis XIV cypher.

I didn't fount Dutch, Portuguese, Greek royal members with LL monogram.

Best fit seems to be Leopold 2 of Belgium or Ludwig 2 of Bavaria. They were crowned in 1865 and 1864 correspondingly. My sympathies is a little on Ludwig's side.. I'm joining their monograms.

Leopold 2





Ludwig 2

The heraldic Dutch Crown (and it's Luxembourgian "spin-off") are the only current reigning royal crowns withoutinside cap. The Crowns are "open". This is in fact a Grand-Ducal Crown but apparently the Orange-Nassaus esthetically liked their royal arms more with an open heraldic crown: http://www.gahetna.nl/sites/default/...ijke_wapen.jpg. I can see why the crowns in the arms are left "empty". It eyes better. The same happened with the heraldic Bavarian Crown. The real Dutch crowns which were made for Willem I resp Willem II were royal indeed with an inside cap: this one is the Crown of 1848.

I think that your monogram possibly is linked to Bavaria. I can not make any match with Dutch royals and that monogram.

Queen Victoria Cypher with a crowned "V", not a crowned "VR"?

Hi, Everyone. I'm trying to verify that Queen Victoria had a cypher of a "V" with a crown above it, not the usual "VR" with a crown.

The images below are from a shotgun made in 1869 by a French royal arms maker. The gun was purchased from a respected American collector whose guns have been displayed at the Metropolitan Museum. Provenance states that this gun was owned by Queen Victoria. I don't know whether Victoria placed the order for this shotgun or it was a gift (possibly from someone who got her cypher wrong!) Any help or advice is greatly appreciated!

*Note that the cyphers on the gun and case use different "V" fonts.
