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:

Much that was, is lost:


Used to be mine (note the "Lippe Lawsuit" Medal 1897 version in 4th place)


Close up of the double Lippe-Detmold NC pair and "white-black" EK

Purged out the "boring" noncombatant stuff when I had my initial interest in Soviet 10 years ago.

Oh, sure, I got Commie Gems then that aren't around NOW... but then neither are bars like these,

wah! Waah!

Oh the humanity!


Above WAS once mine too!

Oh, what a fuel wuzzI! And yet, saved THIS noncombatant Oldenburger below



And this one, to an African tropical diseases expert who died in China in 1900:


And sometime in the 1980s, a dimwit split up the ribbon bar which became MINE from the medal bar, which shows what the exact ribboned awards were-- from the 2002 Siebentritt collection sale:


Note that this guy was a civilian in BOTH wars, so no Hindenburg Cross!

Hmm. Obvious how much passes to us from the Evil Twin, innit? blush.giftongue.gif

Still mine, because I love SETS:


and Brunswick too, the "yellow-blue" ribbon reversed from normal combatant colors:

A very nice set to an ex-career Bavarian military Beamter:


And some Red Cross-ish related ribbon bars. The Top four has incorrectly placed the Prussian Red Cross Medal before the Hindenburg Cross, and adds mystery to the mix with the Mecklenburg and Hessian ribbons. This is a LATE Godet, typical chracteristic gray backing and brass hinge. In the middle, a double Prussian Red Cross and finally an eerily familiar "tiny" that was probably actually worn as a civilian suit lapel rack. Where HAVE I seen this before?

    • 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.
