Was this Combination of Medals Possible?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I was curious to know if the combination of medals on this miniature bar were possible? 

The medals on the bar are from four different countries and consists of:

Denmark: The Order of Dannebrog - Knight
Sweden: The Order of the North Star- Knight
Norway: The King Haakon VII's Medal of Liberty
Finland:  The Pro Benignitate Humana Medal

Thanks in advance!

John

Absolutely possible.

The Dannebrog cross is the King Frederik IX version (1947-1972). Hard to see if it's silver or silvergilt from the picture. If silver it was awarded after 1952 when the Knight class was split in two. If silvergilt and no rosette on ribbon it was awarded 1947-1952.
(Someone should make the front of the award face forward...)

Hi Michael,

Thank you for the detailed reply and confirmation and "Yes", the Dannebrog Cross is in silver.

Best, John

Michael is correct. The Norwegian Cross or Medal of Liberty is often found in groups with the Finnish humania medal. Here is one example from my own collection.
