  1. Very interesting guys. From period photos, I have seen generals who should be wearing bars of 6+ awards, wearing "abbreviated" bars featuring only 3 awards. There are a lot of discrepancies out there.
  2. thank you for posting the older thread! It's great to see the full medal bar. Definitely matches the ribbon bar :-)
  3. Hi Andreas, thanks for your help. Paul been through it already cover to cover and couldn't pin it on anyone.
  4. Hi Gents, I have this nice all WWI KM ribbon bar in my collection. Belonged to an officer in service before 1897. Prussian prescedence followed by three awards from other states. 2nd cl iron cr 1914/18 Pr. red eagle order prussian long service ribbon 1897 kaiser Wil. Commemorative medal. Bremen Hanseatic Cr. Würtemberg Friedrich order 2nd cl? Saxon Albrecht Order? Black backing cloth with flat beaten out pin on reverse. With this combination is there a possibility of an ID? look forward to comments advice and corrections.
  5. Hi, Here are two bars to share with you which fit the topic of discussion. One with the Princely Hohenzollern House Order, and the other with HOH3x. Bar 1: Iron Cross 2nd Class 1914-18 Princely Hohenzollern House Order Mecklenburg Schwerin militarverdienst West Afrika Medal Swedish order of the crown? (Swords striking down over, non-combatant?) Brunswick KVK? Prussian Kronenorden Red Eagle Order Bar 2: Possible row 1 of 2? Iron Cross 1914-18 + 1939 2nd class HOH3x Sachsen Altenburg Herzog Ernst Medaille OR Prussian Verdienstkreuz Gold? Friedrich August Medal with the Vor Dem Feinde Clasp. Mecklenburg Schwerin militarverdienst Honour Cross Any help putting a name and a history to these two bars would be much appreciated Best Regards Alan
  6. Heydrich gave his life for the gold wound badge, small sacrifice for a piece of metal
  7. Hi, It is ok under UV light. It does not glow. It could be the Italian Order too, you are quite right, as they both use the same ribbon Best Regards Alan
  8. Last example is this 7 place bracket. Manufactured from zink with a brass pin and catch. The size is 19mm X 104mm and is suitable for seven 15mm award ribbons. The catch and hinge are made from separate brass parts, which have been brazed onto the metal for a hand worked finish.
  9. 3 Machine made brackets. Stamped shaped bracket. Top and bottom brackets are Iron brackets. The small bar (18mmx25mm) has a steel pin, suitable for one award 25mm. The 4 placer (18.5mm X 58mm) has an iron pin, suitable for 4 awards 15mm. The middle bracket is manufactured from stamped brass, with a brass pin. 18.5mm X 45mm, suitable for 3 awards 15mm. Although different materials, they all have exactly the same characteristics, with a minor variation as to the location of the hinge placements.
