Dear fellow collectors

A friend of mine has been offered this medalbar for sale, he asked me for my opinion and when I saw the pictures I was fairly certain I had seen it before and if I'm not mistaken it was here on GMIC. Does anyone remember?

Kind regards and thanks in advance, Laurentius

Dear Dedehansen

Thanks for the heads-up. Although Ebay is known for their medals (and not in a good way) this bar seems to be good, or am I mistaken in this case?

Kind regards, Laurentius

Dear fellow collectors

A good price, a bit too high for me but a good price. I hope the new owner is a member of this forum so we'll get to see more of it.

Kind regards, Laurentius

Just to be clear, and because there were others with the Rufname Gebhard, he was Gebhard Hans Emil, *22.6.1865 in Straußberg, †18.3.1946 in Putbus.  He had three brothers:

Karl Hans Gebhard Graf v. der Schulenburg-Wolfsburg, *26.9.1867 in Simnau, †8.9.1950 in Martinsbüttel; Ritter des Ordens pour le Mérite, char. Gen.Lt.a.D.

• Hans Gebhard Graf v. der Schulenburg-Wolfsburg, *28.6.1870 in Bremen, †8.11.1946 in Potsdam; Maj.d.L.a.D.

• Friedrich Wilhelm Graf v. der Schulenburg-Wolfsburg, *28.3.1873 in Bremen, †14.3.1928 in Potsdam; Oberstlt.a.D.

Hi Dave,

 

thank you for your information supply.

Today I have received the medal bar. It's really a beauty.

Maybe the Chilean Order is on a wrong ribbon? I know this order on a dark blue ribbon.

I do not have any information regarding this order.

Regards Seeheld
