  1. Hi all. Thanks for all the feedback. I have finally had time to blacklight this which I did thoroughly. It is UV negative, front and back. Regards. Peter
  2. Hi all, Any thoughts on this ribbon bar? Construction wise; it's a half eight style bar with brass backing and no device holes. The order of precedence of the ribbons is odd; eastern front medal after the long service medal and the Bulgarian medal in between the two Romanian medals... Regards, Pieter
  3. These came in today. My first foray into ww1 insignia..
  4. Hi all. Thanks for all the comments so far. Does anyone have access to the information of those awarded the swords on the ring? Thnx. Peter
  5. Hi. I'm reading it as something as [J.Gosdt, d[em] 9.11.21, uber dem Os[..]im sollt...]. Would you be so kind as to post the entire text from the back? Maybe more letters can be deducted from the rest. Peter
  6. Hi all. I thought I'd present you with another ribbon bar from the last Zeige lot. Any thoughts? Thnx and regards. Peter
  7. Hi all. Thanks for taking the trouble and time. Lot's off new information for me. WW1 is still a new collecting area for me and I appreciate all the information. Seeing all those nice medal bars, I might be tempted to go into those myself Thanks. Peter
  8. Hi all, I thought I'd post one the ribbon bars from the last Zeige lot. This one features the Red Eagle order with the bow and swords. There are no holes so the prongs do not go through and are held in place by the ribbons. It looks like just for this reason a wide ribbon for the Eagle order was used to fixate everything in place. All ribbons blacklight negativ. Any thoughts in general and any thoughts on what that second all yellow ribbon is? All comments appreciated. Thanks. Peter
  9. Thanks, that explains the double Mecklenburg ribbons. It looks like the accompanying ribbon bar was sold by Zeige at an earlier date. Does anybody know where it is? Would be nice to reunite the 2 pieces...
