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:

Sorry, but it looks like the production of well known eBay-faker "hagekna41". As I can see ribbons are modern synthetic.

Have to agree, this is fake bar, and the MVK is played with - it used to have swords that were removed... there was just one of this type/class ever awarded!

Sergio and saschaw,

I had to dig through some records, but I did find out that I bought this medal bar from "hagekna41" a few years ago. Thank you for pointing out it is a fake.

Strange that he got a combatant 1870-1871 medal. Does this mean he was a frontline medal? Anyway, a very rare and beautiful combination!

Means he was likely a military doctor. All of them got the bronze medal.

This faker uses one and the same version of well recognizable modern dark blue ribbon for Ludwig's cross. The ribbon for the peace-time BMVK is not the original too. Just look at the edges of the ribbons.

For full confidence please post here HQ-images (the front and the back) of your medal bar.

    • 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.
