3rd Reich Medal bars... Show Yours!

Recommended Posts

HI Stormrider, 

Nice bars.  Your Hindenburg Cross with the clips on the reverse is for mounting it to a larger multi place medal bar.  Single parade mounts were made with these backing clips so they could be attached to a larger metal plate with corresponding slits and a pin back.  The individually mounted medals were then mounted to this larger metal plate to create a large medal bar.  

I do not have a picture of one but it is similar to the ribbon bars of the same construction type.

Hi Gary, I figured as such but with this hobby (and that medal in particular), anything goes. ;)

Hi Chris, I agree. I wonder who this man was?

A bit battered (laundered) but still impressive 11 place Ribbon Bar, I'd love to know which Austrian Ribbon pertains to which medal. :)

We can assume it´s an officer´s ribbon bar, therefore the austrian ribbons would (but must not!) be in common: Militärverdienstkreuz 3. Kl., Silberne Militärverdienstmedaille, Bronzene Militärverdienstmedaille, Karl-Truppenkreuz, Hindenburgkreuz, Österr. Kriegsmedaille, Jubiläumskreuz 1908 and Mobilisierungskreuz 1912-13.

Regards

Christian

Hello, I have this badge of hand-to-hand combat, the seller assured me it is original, but I would like to know other opinions, I would appreciate someone telling me what you think.

Best regards.

Wow, Gary, did you rob a museum! :)   Most of my medal bars have ribbons with a bit of dirt and a couple of them have a small stain or two.  Every one of your bars look like they were put under glass in a museum as soon as they were made.  Awesome collection!

Here are a couple of bars I've not posted (I think).  Nothing really glamorous, but still rare combos and represent honorable wartime service.  I love the NC Bar!
