I know some of you like the veteran's bars/awards. This one's pretty neat with all 4 ribbons for the battle crosses. A couple missing, but the opening bid makes it worth watching. No, not mine, son't know the seller, just know how rare it is to find these all together!

All those battles and not an EK in sight.

Forgive my ignorance, but what was required to earn the "Luftkrieg" bar? Did the owner have to be an aircrew member?

These are all private "awarded" items. During the "anything goes" 1920's, a veteran could purchase any bar he wanted....

That is one heck of an ego bar. To think that all of these were to be replaced by a nice Hindenburg Cross! What do you think a fair market value for this bar should be?

Hi Scott,

the "Luftkrieg" clasp was mainly given to members of anti-aircraft units at the western front or other troops that often had to shot in the sky against planes... ;)

I agree with Heiko, at least 300- Euro... the opening bid then becomes quite sensible, n'est-ce pas?

At least he was awarded something to go with all his private purchase pieces.

here's my Stammtisch-Krieger bar...

Oooooh, a Karlsruher. :love::love::love:

And a nice evidence for the Flandern cross being worn by anyone, not only navy - or is this a navy guy who was an FAR 14 and in France ???
