Interesting Medalbar from Mecklenburg-Schwerin


Recommended Posts

Today I will show you an interesting medalbar from Mecklenburg-Schwerin.

1. Griffin Order with the crown, Mecklenburg-Schwerin

2. Africa medal Adolf Friedrich Duce to Mecklenburg 1908 Expedition, Mecklenburg-Schwerin

3. Order of the Crown, Belgium

The Africa medal is one of the rarest medal from the grandduchy Mecklenburg-Schwerin.

Interesting is also the ribbon style. It's looks a little bit russian.

Hello,

This is indeed a super bar and i love it ;)

Dr. von Raaven did get his Belgian Crownorder (knights grade) with the date of : 07/10/1908

Funny enough, the foreign order (Belgian) was his first one he received :speechless1:

So you have a bit more info on that one as well, but due to regulations it was worn last :rolleyes:

Cordial greetings,

ps: will drop you a PM about it ;)

Or Danish, considering the location of Mecklenburg.

It's interesting. Just recently we had the ribbon bar with a Danish ribbon, and now this. Does anyone know another example of this type of mounting with Mecklenburg medals?
