My latest medal bar. I have been looking for one for a while and literally just got this in time, as someone else was interested but like all good things was not cheap. :speechless1:

That's a beauty. I had my eye on that one too, but unfortunately couldn't raise the funds. Glad to see it found a good home.

Beautiful "Schinkelform" EK2! Nice to see a period Spanish Civil War Medal with the period variation riband, whose red was not as vivid as that of the postwar, replacement issues one could buy in Spanish tailors' shops until a few years ago.

Prosper makes an interesting point, many of the earliest ribbons for both the '39 EK2 & '39 KVK had ribbons that tended towards the orange/red spectrum. It's really nice to see one in a mounted group. I have often wondered if the color is simply an age issue, or if they were actually made that way. I tend to lean more towards it being an age issue. in any event, GREAT bar Nick!!
