War Merit Medal from Lippe-Detmold. A total of 1708 were issued (or thereabouts) , but since it is a home front medal it is one of those awards which is actually rarer on the combatant ribbon, like the one shown. Normally i wouldn't set much stock in a loose medal, but in thise case the ribbon is sewn to the medal loop, not passed through it, and the ribbon is ripped in half. It was probably on a medal bar and ripped off :banger: . A total of 459 were issued on the combatant ribbon.

Correct figures...I can show you even the increase....women style combatant ribbon...around 50 women awarded this decoration, mostly working as nurses in a lazareth.

...ready for an unknown rarity?

It looks ugly, but it is ultra-rare...war merit cross Lippe-Detmool in zinc (only around 50 crosses out of 21.000 crosses in total were produced in zinc)...

I think this one counts with about 175 awards.

Hello,

your cross is a fake. That was a third class of Leser MVK .

Hey Westfale, just how scarce are the long service pendants? I have one on a bar, but that's the only mounted one I've ever seen.

Hello Westfale,

that miniatures are very nice. This DA's have the form like the badges before 1913.

I have never seen this kind of miniatures on pictures, are they all silver marked ?

HI VtwinVice,

Me too - I have seen some others in a german forum where someone asked bout them, and there were seen also a "normal" one of the landwehr. During all the time I am interested in such bars there were only a few seen in catalogues like thies etc., but mot in real - so I think they are scare!

Hi spolei,

yes, thea are all silver marked; two with "900" and the one with the other silver-stamps with "800". the last one - landwehr - must be made after 1888, which was the first year of marking silver with moon and crown! And yes, they are the miniatures of the badges worn before 1913 - thanks for like them, too!
