Hello Westfale:

You are correct, this is a Prussian pre-1913 nine (9) year service clasp variation for the recipient's mounted group of medals. The mounted group with this piece would of course have had the dark blue ribbon with black edge stripes. A nice "custom" item so that the recipient could wear all of his awards on one bar.

Congratulations on obtaining such a nice and interesting piece!

Best regards,

It seems to be (in german: Bronze versilbert) is this correct: brass?silvered?(?).

What do YOU think about it?
