Hello,

I have found it rather hard to find a War Merit Medal either single mounted or on a medal bar. Here is an example I picked up a while ago and was happy to finally add one to my collection. How many others have mounted War Merit Medals?

Regards,

Jody

You're absolutely right; they're scarce to find mounted. Tom Yanacek mentions it specifically in his wonderful book on parade mounted bars. Like you, I was fortunate to find one and here it is. I hope others post theirs. Congratulations!

Hello,

Great bar with the Social Welfare Medal. Yes, I have that great book and a couple of my bars are even in it. They are a bear to find mounted.

Regards,

Jody

Here are the additional photos.

The oxidation, wear, and etc are uniform on all materials and is not artificial. It is a strange one, but I am comfortable with it.

Always good to see KVM's on medal bars! These are fantastic examples. :)

Kind regards

Hi Lambert

For me I have had no issue when buying from them

Nice medal bars, now I have this urge to track down a KVM medal bar.

I personally love these. What I find most interesting is that I read that these were the most commonly awarded medals, but they are so scarce to find mounted.

Nice one!!  It is funny how millions of these were reported to have been issued, but they are so rare to find on bars.

Sorry for bringing back this old topic. But since I saw those sacrace mounted War merit medals i hoped I would ever find one of these to. 

And here is the one I found. The owner was a ww1 veteran and later Truck driver who delivered supplies for the Westwall. Later he got the War merit medal to. He died before the war was over as his civilian truck was straffed by ground attack planes. 

I also have a photo of him and his Truck. 

REST IN PEACE
