I wonder what the original owner was in the military. I suppose a captain, major grade or equivalent non combatant. 

Its a beauty

Does anyone have the numbers of WWI  OZL 2nd class knights with OLCs ? I know with swords and  OLCs about 1450

But cant find numbers W/O swords ? Could he have been in  some medical field ?

Numbers awarded 1866 to 1918: 1.452. I can´t find a reason, why the order should be awarded after 1914.

The non combattant ribbon of the Iron Cross in World War 1 is typical for the person I mentioned above. It is not impossible, that civil doctors or kind of male nurses got on. But they represent only a small part of the people, awarded with this decoration. Therfore it is for me unlikely, that somebody from the medical field was the owner of this bar, even if it can´t be excluded.

So the Baden Order most likely pre war ? Would it be a military award or to  a  civilian ? Could it have been Police or medical or any type of civil servant ? also possible Army ?

so pretty uncommon awarded after 1914

1. It is awarded for service in the war zone with swords. For any other merit before AND after 1914 without swords. So I (!) could not say, if it is handed out before or after 1914. With detailed pictures of the order some Baden specialists could give an indication when it was made by the maker or style. If the golden parts are gilded silver (as it seems for the oak leaves), the order should be made after 1910.

2. So it could have been given to a miliary person AND a civil one.

3. Civil servant is the most likely owner, Police and any medic is possible, but unlikely.

4. See 1. and 2.

5. Not uncommon, but most of the awarded decorations after 1914 were given with swords.
