Hello,

what do you think about this ribbon bar? Could it be IDable?

I think the third ribbon could be BMV4XmKr and the fourth ribbon a BMV4X.

The sixth ribbon looks like the Swedish Order of Swords to me. The silver swords and the different blue stripes rule out an Austrian Order of the Iron Crown. 

The ninth ribbon could be a pre-war BMV4.

 

Best regards,

Nicolas

Thank you so much Paul! Do you have anymore information about him?

Any record of Pöllmann having the Bavarian Military Merit Order without Swords (pre-war)? It's not listed in the 1914 Rank List.

In 1900 and 03 he was at the artillery depot in Fürth. His swords and crown were from WWI, October 9, 1916.

He is not listed in the Ehrenrangliste so I can't determine.

I am referring to the 9th ribbon (without swords). I would expect this to be listed in the 1914 Bavarian Rank List, and it is not.

Dear Paul C

The 9th ribbon is the Bavarian MVO4 without swords, which was only given out untill 1914. If you didn't have it in 1914, you would never be able to get it anymore due to the dissolvation of the Bavarian kingdom. That is the reason it has to appear in the 1914 ranklist.

Kind regards, Laurentius

Pöllman did not have it in 1914 so possibly the wrong guy.

Dear fellow collectors

Could it be that this bar belonged to someone who was a mere NCO/EM during the war? perhaps a BMVK2xkr and BMVK2x with a pre-war BMVK3? The Austrian war ribbon was for both NCO/EM and officers awards, the swedish order of the sword might be a version for NCO/EM also. This would explain why we can't find him in the rank lists

Kind regards, Laurentius
