unusual mounting of awards on this bar


Recommended Posts

Hello Naxos:

Yes, there is one (1) medal group mounted in this fashion out there. I believe that it is at the Burg Hohenzollern and that it belonged to Wilhelm I (if my memory serves correctly).

Best regards,

I would second that! Burg Hohenzollern has a great display of medals in the Schatzkammer. Mostly from Kaiser Wilhelm I, Wilhelm II, and other von Preussen family members. Another get display is at Hohenschwangau in Fuessen, the tourist trap by Neuschwanstein. Awesome display of Bavaria stuff. Schloss Hohenzollern in Hechingenm has a nice but small display of Proncely Hohenzollern medals (small meaning I almost missed it in the tiny display case)

All three are worth the trip if you're in the neighborhood.
