I think this ribbon bar belonged to one officer who probably died during WW1, because there is no LS medal. Rick can probably help you to identify this ribbon bar.

Christophe

It could also be a wartime bar. Prussian 1914 Hauptmann combination with BMV4X - if the ribbon is correctly used - as a prewar award for Southwest Africa.

Yes, it is Eugen Stuhlmann. It is a WWI bar without long service cross. He got LS in 1920 for 1915 but did not wear it on his bars. The BMV4x was for GSWA, so it is the correct ribbon.

Hi Red Eagle,

I apologize for this late response, but I had sent my star back to where it lives (not here at home) by the time I saw your question. Since I got it back here, I have been trying to get a picture like yours but just can not seem to get a clear one.

Looking at my piece, one could say that it may, and I emphasize may, have one horizontal line like yours. Interestingly, it does have what appears to be a ?4? on the inside of the pin (see below)... No we won't see below - for some reason, I can't get the picture to attach.

I welcome any comments on all of this; and again apologize for this late response.

Best wishes,

Wild Card

... appears to be a "4" on the inside of the pin ...

Hi Wild Card, Hi Red Eagle,

the star I can add here seem to have a latin "4". Therefore I interpret the mark Red Eagle shows as a latin "2". But I have to send the pic later - the same problem, I am not able to atach it.

Greetings, Komtur.

My star dont have an additional number.

Red

I don?t mean that there is an additional number, I believe the "II" to be seen on your star could be a latin 2, because as I can show now (at least I hope so) there is a "IV" on the pin of the pic below.

With regards, Komtur.

Hello,

these roman numberals you can often find on Prussian breast start. Usually the pin, the corpus, the medaillon in the centre and sometimes the ring around the medaillon are signed with the same roman numeral.

Probably these marks were made for the differentiation of parts of different stars, while producing small series.

Best regards

In that case it is interestingly a "VI" and a "IV" (as I hope it is to be seen on the pic).

This statement is correct. Almost all decorations were made in a batch process and needed indentification on which parts matched together. You will find those makrings not only on Prussian orders, but on a variety of state orders and decorations.

Looks like IR 459 to me-- but there were TWO Vieths this could have been, an infantry and a J?ger officer, so don't know which one had this first name. (Wretched Prussian lists! :banger: )

Rick, Komtur,

Fritz Vieth was the former 3. Lothringisches Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 135 Vieth (Hptm 1.10.13 B50b) and still in that rank in the 1919 Dienstaltersliste. Magdeburgisches J?ger-Bataillon Nr. 4 Leutnant Vieth was promoted to Oberleutnant with a Patent of 27.1.15 J52i and was still in that rank in the 1919 Dienstaltersliste.

Regards

Glenn
