Today arrived parcel with this nice medal bar. :jumping:

1. EK2 (Eiserne Kreuz 2 Klasse)

2. SHsM (Silver Medal of the Military Order of St. Henry)

3. FAMs (Friedrich-August Medal silver)

4. Hindenburg Cross with X


First Silver St. Henry medal - is it NCO-s award or also officers?

How many those silver medals is awarded? (approx even)

Because there is as well FAMs is it then 100% NCO medal bar or would be as well officers(NCO become officer during WW1)? Same time there is no LS award but is Hindenburg Cross, so I think its NCO (if St Henry medal is pure NCO award what officers didnt got), now would be interesting to hear what gurus think :cheers: .

Is the owner from the Saxony or Prussia or its impossible to say. (If the Saxony awards would be first, is it then possible to say 100% that the owner was from the Saxony?)

Is my wroted abreviations right and how to write correctly the Hindenburg cross? (like FAM: is it have to be FAMiS - Friedrich August Medal im Silber???)

All extra info would be great!

Thank you Jaba and Rick! :beer:

But was he from Saxony, Prussia, Saxon in the Prussia unit, Prussian in the Saxony unit or is it impossible to tell?

If the Saxony awards are first ones, was the owner pure Saxon?
