Dear Dond

A nice non-combattant bar, but I don't think that it is a navy bar, there is no FA-cross, and also no hanseatic-crosses. Nice bar nonetheless, wonder what this veteran did during the war.

Kind regards, Laurentius

Add a saxon Mannschaftsstand DA and the bar is perfect.:)

A few years ago this bar stayed in my collection.

That`s not a Schaumburg ribbon. It has a smaller blue stripe.

The ribbon is blue, not green. It came with the saxon LS medal but I don't think it is correct. I also looked at a possible Baltic Cross but the ribbon is not correct for that either.

Yes, but the blue stripe on Schaumburg is smaller. As i bought it from a person, it had the DA15 on it.

The problem with these medal clips is that things can be removed, replaced etc at any time. The DA15 doesn't go on a blue ribbon.  The Schaumburg does and it is close enough to be a manufacturers variant.

Hello all,

do we really have a FAM-ribbon? The ribbon looks like the saxon "Erinnerungkreuz" for 1866:

The last ribbon could also stands for a swedish decoration!

Agreed!

This is a pre-WWI large medal bar.  The first position should be an 1870/71 EKII, followed by the 1866 Sachsen Erinnerungkreuz (Campaign Cross), followed by a Saxon DA, followed by an 1870/71 campaign medal.  The last ribbon is interesting and definitely could be a Swedish decoration.  So, properly restored, back to the way it was, it could be much more interesting.

When did medal clips come into use? I still don't see a DA as the ribbon is blue. Still it would be easy to restore.

Then it has to be pre-Centennial/ 25 year Oaks. What 1870/1 campaign medal, fighter or stay at home steel?  I assume with the EK on Black/white ribbon it would be a bronze one.  Still not sure about the DA since the ribbon is blue.

Hello again Don:

The 1870/71 campaign medal would be bronze as this soldiers other awards were combat-related.  The DA ribbon does look more blue than green, but this is normal for these early ribbons.  I have seen this before concerning groups from this era.  Here is an example of an earlier-type DA ribbon that is somewhat similar in color:
