    wurttemburg silver merit cross with swords

    Recommended Posts

    question: how many of these were awarded? i understand they are somewhat scarce. i am considering attempting to find a suspension ring and ribbon for this example

    Hello Eric:

    There is no need to obtain a "suspension ring" as your piece is complete "as is". I believe that this is how these pieces were awarded.

    Best regards,

    yet here is an image from my waldorf-astoria 'orden' cigarette card album. perhaps the earlier (1900+) version without swords had only two rings? or the third ring could quite possibly be due to a jeweler's whim. p.s. or for use on a medal bar?

    Woohooo, Walldorf-Astoria uses the wrong ribbon on the Z?hringer L?we merit cross...

    :speechless: :speechless: :speechless:

    I think the additional ring on the W?rttemberg merit cross is an added one, for better mounting.
