Ribbon Bar of Oberstleutnant aD Ludwig Freiherr von Imhoff


Recommended Posts

A recent pick up with the following 11 ribbons:

1. 1914 EK2

2. 1939 KVK

3. Bayern MVO w/swords and crown

4. FEK

5. Bayern Jubilee

6. Bayern Jubilee

7. Prussian KO

8. Bayern Prinz Rupprecht 1920s

9. Bayern Long Service

10. Bayern Jubillee medal for 2 IR 1932

11. Tyroler Nobileman Associations

The last 2 helped very much to be able to trace the bar to Oberstleutnant aD Ludwig Freiherr von Imhoff in KB 2 IR. If anyone has a unit history of KB 2 IR and can look for a pic of Oberstleutnant aD Ludwig Freiherr von Imhoff I would greatly appreciate it. Also my thanks to Rick for tracing the bar. Without his eagle eyes I would have been lost!!

Nice and interresting bar in a great conditioon - but what is the Tyroler Nobileman Associations? I remember having seen a neck beadge in shape of an eagle, but that was as said a neck badge...

According to the International Commission on Orders of Chivalry and a few other web sites I located, the Tiroler Adelsmatrikel is an association of Tirolean nobles that has been in existance since the late 1300's and still exists today.

The "TMZ" was apparently--like so many OTHER Austro-Hungarian decorations (and this seems to be more of a genealogical badge than an "award" per se) worn every day in Kleindekoration form.

Here is a ? wartime/? 1920s German style Austrian ribbon bar for (probably) a medical oifficer who was a Catholic von Etwas-- note BOTH the Marianerkreuz and the TMZ down there looking like a misplaced Baden Z?hringen Lion:

The full size neck badge ribbon is shown with gold metallic wire side stripes.

Ah, thank you both, now I got it. ;)

... and the TMZ down there looking like a misplaced Baden Z?hringen Lion:

Ah, no more Baden connection with this bar? Now I feel better, think I once gave it a miss - not as bad for me when it's not a Z?hringer...

:rolleyes:

... And the bar is currently for sale on eBay!  It's nice to know the bar found its way into the appreciative hands of my favorite dealer from the forum who perceived an opportunity to benefit from Rick and Paul's research. Here's a link for Y'all:
