Medal/ribbon bars.

Recommended Posts

Gents a recently purchased Generalleutnant tunic, very light grey lightweight pure wool jacket, heavily embroidered insignia, late 70's early 80's ? sporting a ribbon bar as shown in the photographs...my question is, when did the metal slider type bars come into vogue/fashion...I ask as the ribbon bar on this tunic is not of the usual 1957 construction, it is of the type above, again see photograph....is this bar acceptable on this tunic or is it a modern made up piece !
Prost,Steve.http://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_10_2012/post-7645-0-28113800-1349994853.jpghttp://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_10_2012/post-7645-0-92058400-1349994869.jpghttp://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_10_2012/post-7645-0-63133000-1349994888.jpghttp://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_10_2012/post-7645-0-23013100-1349994910.jpghttp://gmic.co.uk/uploads/monthly_10_2012/post-7645-0-98834500-1349994928.jpg

Hi,

nice tunic, but I think the bar is a modern one.

The sliders came in use mid 90ies.

Lots of greetings

Daniel
