I think the condition is fine. It has character. I don't usually collect non-combatants, but I like Lifesaving medals mounted on medal bars! Sadly, too few of those to go around...

I agree. :love:

To revive this old topic, this popped up at the SOS this weekend:

Indeed I did. It is now residing in my gun safe.

Gentlemen, I can tell you that you have to see this bar (in person) to really appreciate it. Congratulations Beau! :cheers:

Someone really plucked that bar didn't they? Like grapes off the vine, but a least they left a list of the medals that were there. Although I doubt Paul needs it.

Good luck Paul with the restoration. I look forward to seeing it when it's done. It should be a real gem.

Many beautiful bars here!

What do you think about this bar? The ribbons are alittle loosely packed, is that a matter of concern? And what's the missing last place decoration with plain red ribbon? Saxe-Weimar white falcon or some Austrian medal cross?

What do you think about this bar?

I hope you didn't buy it?

In my eyes, the bar is pure crap. AEZ with reverse to front, a RKK2 without RKM3 which should always be there... and sold by one of my "favorite" eBay sellers....

Just enter his eBay name in the forum search and you'll find his stuff discussed... for years.

:shame:

Sascha, thanks alot for your reply! I thankfully didn't buy this one, it's on sale currently on ebay. I wanted to check first, and my gut concern was right. Upturned AEZ is not such a big concern, as these are often seen upturned, but RKK2 without RKK3... That one I missed :( Thank to you I never will again!

Just Won this one at a Swedish auction :jumping:

The Oldenburg Non Fighter was only awarded in approx 1700 if I remember correct.

I have been looking for a NC Oldenburg FA Cross for a long time and this was just :love:

    • 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 .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
