    Did i got that right, in post #18 that is a Hohenzollern Ehrenkreuz with Swords and Crown? Or is it the Merit Cross with Swords and Crown?


    I have examples of the Hohenzollern Ehrenmedaille in silver and gold, with and without swords, and I am fairly confident I understand the Ehrenkreuz, but what is the difference between the Ehrenkreuz and the Verdienstkreuz?

    Can anyone show an example?

    Thanks in advance,

    The first bar shown below came from Detlev Niemann some time ago. Unfortunately, I didn't realise it was one of a split pair when I bought it. The "one that got away" also had a Frontk?mpfer ribbon and a blue service award ribbon, if I remember correctly. The ribbons are 16 mm wide.

    It could be an army or navy bar, and I am sure Rick (the GOOD one) more or less identified one with a blue backing some time ago.

    Minty bars are nice, but these salty ones have really "been there". I wish I only knew where.

    This bar is made of 26 mm wide ribbons and nothing glows more than it should.

    It looks a bit homemade to me, and an informed source on another forum was not too keen on it. But since it only cost beer money, I am not too bothered about its integrity.

    Does the device look OK?

    Many thanks for your comments and opinions.
