Mounted 7 place bravery and campaign bar.

Recommended Posts

Hi gents

i bought this a little while back. It came with the medals pictured on the trifold ribbons.  Which I doubt belong. Someone must have put them together not recognising the Hindenburg ribbon and instead putting in a wound medal.  However the medals look like a related group of four including the wound medal and then three campaign medals added on. I also notice the ‘swords’  are upside down? But seems like a period made mistake to me. Do the swords on the bar look original to those who know I wonder?

ive added my own spares to the bar and left the medals in their trifolds....

hope you like it gents

I must confess that I do not why, but it was common style for esp. hungarian officers in the Habsburg army to wear the swords upside down on MVK, Iron Crown and order of Leopold. I have seen it very often.
