here's another one!
Ok, OK, it doesn't have an EK...... still it's a GREAT flippin' bar!
Here's a nice pair
And one more!
My only pair.
Here is one of my new medal bar
Christophe, that's an impressive group in #31. I'm not familiar with the cross with the yellow/red/black ribbon (and what I assume is it's 1st Class counterpart). Which German State is this from?
Thanks for your comment. This group is from Reuß and the near the EK2 is the Ehrenkreuz 3 Kl mit X from Reuß.
On the right of the EK1 is the Reuß Kriegsverdienstkreuz
I suspect your Reuß bravery pair must be a bit scarce to find... Thanks for sharing.
My new medal bar from Kingdom of Saxe
Excellent! Nice pair!
I know you like Saxon medal bar
The only pair I could find without an Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer. One broken sword hilt on the Bewährungsabzeichen, but otherwise nice:
I suppose I could cheat and add a trio. Most likely a Bavarian lieutenant in the 4.Infanterie-Regiment:
Beautiful bars David, very nice indeed!
I especially like the Brunswick pair!
Wonder thread fellas, I need to pull out the few pairs I have to share. That's the drawback of having in display cases.

This MVK is the first model (out of 3) in the production of Jacob Leser (a fairly rare piece). The nut holding the swords is either missing or was damaged and sort of repaired at some point in time. There is also a possibility that this cross was initially awarded without swords and they were only added later (Note that this is the only model which was handed out without swords - any other variation from this maker you find without swords got them removed by monkey fingers)
Ha Ha Ha, Monkey Fingers! That was one of Rick Research's favorite sayings!
Here are my only pairs.
That non-combatant pair is wonderful!
Thanks Stogie! It is one of my favorites. A poor man's 19th century NC bar!
how about a pair of pairs?
Nice Eric, very nice indeed!
