What is your opinion on this medal bar?


Recommended Posts

Well, somebody's pulled off a Prussian or Third Reich long service award and stuck on an Order of the Star of Rumania.

The good news with this type of tab-back is the awards usually clip in and out, so the screw-up can be easily corrected with a common German award that fits right... and if the price is right, and the Rumanian award is in good condition... it's worth it for the parts. Note that the Iron Cross has a shattered core, with the bottom arm broken off inside the silver frame. This is basically "worth" what the Order is.

Thanks Rick. I had no idea whether the bar was newly assembled from genuine German items with the maker a bit 'creative' with the Romanian award or whether the bar was genuine and the owner matched the ribbon of a missing badge with the Romanian one. Thanks again.
