Ouch these ribbon bars seems to live forever , after a time they reappear in new boxes and often with some extras , like shoulder boards

some blurry pics , without connection at all to the bar or maybe a seal with initials ....

I´m just waiting for the shocking truth, about the former owner of this bar :hitler:

:cheeky: :cheeky: :cheeky:

Guys, you're good. I didn't notice the double Austrian medal, since I didn't even look this close...


I wonder what it will sell for? 250 Euro, 350 Euro, 500 Euro? I fear I'd pay it, given it were good... BV3 bars are amung the rarest WW1 bars, and this would be the biggest I've ver seen.

I don't know who have paid 401 euros for this ribbon bar, but I don't think it's an good thing to pay such price for this one. to be honest, I have a little doubt about this bar. Of course to be sure it will be interrested to have it in the hands to look it carefully.

I wonder if this and this is paying... at least it seems to be. In my opinion, hardly any of these ribbon bars is real.


I'm watching this seller for many years now. And hardly any of the dozens or hundereds he sold was real, in my opinion.

he's making this rather personal for me.... I am deeply offended by this:








Dearest collectors on GMIC
I have only recently started collecting, and I would like to ask you what would be wrong with this medalbar. To me, a rather untrained eye, it looks perfectly normal. The medals for example look real to me, Could it be the backing of the bar, or rather the way the medals are hanging from, because I've seen more medalbars with this way of wearing.

With kind regards, Laurentius

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
