Austrian bar:

This one is interesting (post 61: KVKx/LS/LS/Anschluss/R CaC).

It shows regulations/precedence sophistication not often found in make-a-quick-euro ripoff specialists.

Are we certain it's a bad one?

This guy IS clever - using all sorts of old parts. But

1) the Austrian DA is insanely rare on medal bars like this and

2) - I repeat myself - "in this company I really wouldn't touch with a flagpole"...

ah-understood-almost certain guilt by association.....

It is VERY troubling that he has this level of knowledge....

had I seen that at my local medal show i'd have snapped it right up thought myself lucky.

This one is currently on ebay, a completely different case, different seller.

I think it might have been ok once --- but to my mind, the ?M3K might have been added later.

Supposed to be an officer candidate in 1917/18, but still got the officer decoration. Possible, but look at the relatively new ribbon... I'm not sure about this one.

Backside. A Hungarian, yes, with Hungarian "Anschluss" medals from 1940/41.

To me, it looks like the nice-looking ÖM3K has been squeezed in later. An "enhanced" bar.

Offered by whom? I now have a quite long list (in mind) with "black sheep". Could you please PM me, to prevent problems... ;o(

This seller is quite prominent on Ebay and well, in Hungary as well. None of his bars are what I would call "original". The parts are original, but the set up is probably not. Recently one sold on Ebay with "new" ribbons, old medals and a communist era mounting bar....

You know-he's getting better.

Kelly's uses him for repro bars (which he sells as repros, but when he stops using the edge stitching and the new ribbons-and makes 5 medal bars that are reasonable.....he'll be creating real problems.
