Reverse. Note the small ring on the cross.

  • There are some interesting medals in there. Have you been able to track down any of the two original owners?

No Paul,
I just know the medals.
Researching is still a blind spot to me. I shouldn't know where to start.

Greetings,
Poulton

Hello Poulton;

That bar on the left is really great. The swords on ring arrangement on the Herzog Carl Edward medal is a rather uncommon and only came out in 1935!

You sure do turn up the bars with rarer medals on them.

Does anyone know whether a second EK II would be given for someone who merited it in combat as well as having an NC?

The quick answer is no. Usually a soldier got either a state medal or a pat on the back for additional bravery. A step up to an EK1 was a bit of a leap the lower ones ' rank, but it did happen. Also, to fill the gap some units gave out Honor Diplomas, which sometimes had unofficial medals with them, much like challenge coins here in the USA today.
