@ 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?

Regards

Matthew

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.

Anything that stimulates discussion is welcome.

I wonder if his poor wife knows what he is doing in her name ;-)

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.

No iron cross, but also a non-combattants bar with KDM1864 and 1870/71 for non-combattants in steel.

: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

LD1, HP3a, EH3a, AB3a should pop up. Not a military official--no 1897 Centenary Medal, so either a dR/dL officer with a day job, or a retired dR/dL officer in non-Prussian civil service....

    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.  
    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian
