Gentleman's Military Interest Club

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine purchased a nine-place trapezoid several yours ago and recently asked me to help him ID the ribbons.  At first glance I thought it might date to 1872 but it does not have the Franco-Prussian War ribbon.  I need some help gentlemen.  I think I have half of them figured out but  the last few are a mystery. I attach a photograph.

Hi,

my thoughts:

- Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse

- Sachsen Ehrenkreuz mit Schwertern

- Militärehrenzeichen 2. Klasse

- Kreuz für Kriegshilfe

- Preußen allgemeines Ehrenzeichen

- Braunschweig Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2. Klasse

- Schaumburg - Lippe Kreuz für treue Dienste or Dienstauszeichnung 2.Klasse (old

version ) depends if there is a small white centre strip or not

- Kolonialdenkmünze

- Kolonialauszeichnung 2. Klasse

Kind regards
Andreas

Hi Gents, I think we are talking about a post 1918 NCO trapezoid ribbon bar, so a red eagle order isn´t possible.

The last ribbon is definitely a Kolonialauszeichnung ( Löwenorden ) and not a elephant order.
