Hi gang,

In the long-ago, I picked up this "trapezoidal" bar, sans medals. Believing in "completion," even back then :D , I added the medals I thought were appropriate. In a recent, unexpected moment of illumination, it occurred to me that it was probably wrong! The trapezoidal mounting ended in 1914, yes? In which case, this bar should have 1870 EK2 and Service Medal, yes? :speechless:

It hung on into the late 1930s but was increasinly olllllllllllld fashioned.

The final ribbon is for the Austro-Hungarian 1908 Inhaber Jubilee Medal for regiments for which Emperor Franz Joseph was honorary Colonel-in-Chief.

Gee Rick, do your kids ever say, "Gee, Dad, you know EVERYTHING!"? No? Mine, neither! :D

Thanks for the correction... but then the 1912 cross is what, and from what state?

And in that posting you said "The last medal is the 1908 Austro-Hungarian Jubilee Medal for foreign regiments in a number of countries whose honorary Colonel-in-Chief was the Emperor Franz Joseph." Which would be the only right medal for that bar that I have?

Which, in the end means, too bad, Cartoonman, you are S-O-L.... (So-Outta-Likelihood[of ever finding one])! :(

Same exact ribbon :cheers: ...

only no German (until after the 1938 Anschluss made Austrians "German") had the 1912-13 Cross and no Austrian had the 1908 Inhaber Jubilee Cross.
