  1. You got always such nice β€œstuff”... and also with photographic evidence! Nice, very nice indeed! πŸ˜‰
  2. Wow! πŸ˜±πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» Thatβ€˜s quite a ribbon bar... it looks like a Godet, with mini ribbons of 1 cm of width. When I look at this bar with the Prussian cross for war merit at the second place and all these orders I was thinking of Ludendorff...πŸ€” Great ribbon bar indeed!!!πŸ‘ regards, C
  3. That is what I call a SPECTACULAR medal bar... and also its picture has been found!!!! πŸ˜±πŸ˜²πŸ‘
  4. Dear Komtur!!!! Wooooooooooooooooow! That was such a wonderful surprise to read your message today early in the morning. After so many years a name, face and history behind a tuxedo medal bar has been finally found. That is so cool; even more because the wearer was such an elusive and rather unknown middle-rank harbor civilian official . Many many thanks to your extraordinary research work; not even the poor Rick Lundstrom (RIP) could unfortunately find him... you have beaten the master! Although, I think that given the research possibilities of today, Rick could have given to the collecting and researching community of German Imperial orders so much more, if he had lived longer... Thanks again Komtur! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ€
  5. Thanks Rick! You know that I saw the exactly Sto arrivando!me medal bar with the same combination of decorations and documents being sold on a German auction ? Either is this combination not unique or it was the same wearer....
  6. Dear forumites, I'd like to show a Saxon medal bar and its ribbon bar I bought some years ago in Germany. Cheers, C
  7. Thanks a lot Andy! πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜Š you’re the man!!!!
  8. Thank you Jason your words mean a lot to me! Thank you Sir! Admiration is a big word though I don’t deserve... πŸ˜‰
  9. Well, actually all this orders were given very likely for his connections with Schaumburg-Lippe rather than real merit (he got also the Treu und Dienste Cross almost in the end of ww1). Strangely enough his SL3 wasn’t upgraded with swords... Furthermore the Siamese (Thai) order was probably given whilst receiving a visit of Siamese officers or Royal family members who participated to some kind of Pionier military maneuvers or workshop pre 1914. So all in all his connections helped boasting his array of decorations on his bar, more than some mere mortal Infantry officer at the front....πŸ€” I have some beautiful and long bars which belonged to officers that haven’t even reached higher ranks than Major or Oberstleutnant, but they were able to get more exotic orders than even Generals, not to mention front officers!
