Hello all,

a belated Happy New Year! This time I have a question, regarding swords on ribbon bars, and specifically the type below, which is usually considered a late WW2 type. I have always wondered when they started to appear exactly. Does anyone have examples of this type of swords on ribbon bars which are clearly from before 1942?

 

Regards

Chris

That looks like the style of sword hilt seen on the Hessian Order of Philip.  Whether this style made it onto ribbon bars, I do not know.

Can we see the rest of the ribbon bar? Can you date it to the time period you describe?

This is the late WW2 hollow back swords type. What are the earliest examples you have seen?
