  1. Very nice bar. The last medal is the FAM and it is on the noncombatant ribbon. Not too easy to find. To me the fifth medal has been swapped. It could be a pre 1905 Bavarian MVO which will run you some decent money to replace. There was also a Bavarian fireman long service cross given on this ribbon but that doesn’t fit the bar.
  2. EKI 1914 maker KO.

    WW1 cross in a WW2 box. Very nice.
  3. Is there a visible seam around the outside of this? The surface is quite pitted and frankly this medal would concern me as far as originality goes. Look at the pits at 9 o'clock on the obverse near the rim. I'm not comfortable with this medal based on the photos.
  4. Thank you  Mr Beery for redirecting me back to the site. I've been away a very long time.

  5. Thank you both for the extra information! I am happy to know the history of this man!
  6. Simon, Thank you for the extra details. I did check the casualty roll and didn't find him so assumed he survived. Where did you get the overseas date?
  7. As an Imperial German collector, I often turn up other material while on the hunt. Mostly "stuff" but every once in a while I find something nice. I purchased this group from an Estate Sale owner. He had a few items I purchased but this is the nicest. MM - 303241 PTE H.A. DALY 1/2 HIGH:F.A.R.A.M.C-T.F. 14/15 star - 1758. PTE H.A.DALY R.A.M.C BWM - 1758. PTE H.DALY R.A.M.C VIC, - 1758. PTE H.DALY R.A.M.C I have done some research on this and see he is Scottish in the 1/2 Highland Field Ambulance and the MM was after the 1917 renumbering. What I don't understand was that a Territorial Force soldier got a MM in France. I though T.F. people stayed at home in the UK? Did he volunteer to go over or is my assumption on T.F. incorrect? Also, in general are these medical groups considered more desirable or less desirable than combatant groups? Can a citation be found for the MM? This was really a surprise find for me and I am enjoying it. Still wish the Germans would have named their medals.
  8. So you bought the grouping! Nice! I wouldn't necessarily say it was made to go under another order. Somewhere on here the should be a picture of one of my Johanniters mounted the same way and a picture of it in wear. This was done to have the order out from under the collar.
  9. Not it one stop! This is about 20 years with a few in there when I didn't collect. Only the Finnish one is new to the collection and I have waited about 15 years to get it!
  10. Here is a miniature bar that took about 15 years to acquire! It comes from a good friends collection and he liked it as much as I do. I always wanted it to see what Rick L. would say. I think I know! It also has a little metal tag on the back that ought to make Claudio smile.
