@ Saschaw - thanks for that info, wasn't aware that doctors at the front received non-combatant awards but the combatant medal.

@ Sergio - Thanks for bringing these examples to light. How about someone posts them in the fakes thread so that more people see them and are aware?

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:

Talking about ebay seller "hagekna41", we may not forget his wife(?) "agle42", who's active at the moment!


This two ribbon bars also did come from him and were re-sold now, but by an honest seller who claimed he's not sure if they're real.



Sorry for hijacking this thread, but this is important information, I'd say, and not everyone reads the fake bar threads.

Only a ribbon bar ...

But what a lovely one! I especially like the screwed on sword device... typical for these old ones.

By the way, I assume it's rather for a RAO4Xw thann for a KO4Xw, as the latter is often seen with a "crown and swords" device in these days!

Thanks Chris, I was indeed planning to post the bar here, but was too busy the days.

Beautiful set!

In case you're referring to my bar and bow posted by Chris in #332 and #333, they're not a set. ;)

This just arrived. A Wurttemberg old-time NCO group with a NC EKI and a Wilhelm's Cross, another NC award, even with swords. The hardest to find, however, is probably the 21 year NCO Long Service Cross. As a bonus, it included his wartime bar that appears to have been stripped to make up his new bar, except for the 15 year Long Service, which had been upgraded.

:Cat-Scratch: Ooooooooooooooooo! :love: Actually, he was a frontline noncombatant. Prussian regulations were upside down: steel medal on non-combatant ribbon for unarmed uniformed peronnel under enemy fire, stay at homes got steel medal on "combatnt" ribbon-- the exact opposite of anything sane. :banger:

There's no long service in there, and from the mix of Knight 2nd and higher awards, who you have there is a higher Beamter: never iID'd while I was offline?

My small contribution.

Not so much a collector of bars but this way the only way to be certain of having a genuine Anhalt Bear.

The old frayed soiled ribbons suggested it had not been tampered with. Unfortunately no I'd

    • 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.
