Interesting-weren't the bars put out @ 1900?

What order are the medals in?

The Centennial medal must've been worn separate?

I would really like to see that bar.

Then you've got problems. Very large and insurmountable problems.

Bavarian precedence put their awards first.

No Bavarian in 1895-97 would ever have worn a Prussian Iron Cross before a Bavarian Silver Bravery Medal.

Which is where scans come in....

though, unfortunately, even wthout scans this can pretty much be presumed to be yet another of the endless todal wave of rubbish Frankenstein parts bars being mass produced currently in Germany.

Sorry. :(

Perhaps-a post 1935 bar "made older" by the sammlerariatclub?

The EK2/BavMMcx/Hkx would be the correct precedence for post 1935 bars.

If the medals are hooked on the back.......at least the ribbon bar and 1870 campaign medal might be originals.

Hello everyone:

Rick is absolutely correct regarding this (as with all other things)! In order to receive the Bavarian Military Merit Medal the recipient would have to be a Bavarian (there may have been exceptions to this, but I do not know of any). And, a Bavarian veteran of the 1870-1871 conflict would wear the MVM, then the EKII, and then the campaign medal. I guess that it is possible that the Centennial was worn by itself. This group sounds a bit strange to be sure.

I wish that a photo/scan of it was posted. That would certainly help determine what is going on here.

Best regards,

"SPM"

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
