Ah, the "cookie cutters!" :cheeky:

Extremely ugly and yet original period oddities. :cheers:Very infrequently seen and would be the sort of bizarre variant that would allow identifying a maker if only we can find a period sales catalog.

But what does the REST of that bar look like? The Hungarian WW1 Commemorative (Xs upside down :unsure::whistle: ) is often mismounted after the Austrian version, but Full Frontal and back are always needed to evaluate a bar, not just a piece of one.

Hi Rick,

You got it right buddy, without even seeing the bar! :lol: The Hungarian ribbon IS in-correctly mounted after the Austrian ribbon...!! :Cat-Scratch:

Here are the pictures of the bar in question!

Thanks :beer:

Looks like little monkey fingers peeled off the backing, slapped it or a replacement back on, and then decided to stick 3 of the 4 Xs through the backing.

The Austrian ribbon there is actually one of the two dozen or so all on generic waryime ribbons, and post-1938 should actually be in front of the Hindenburg Cross.

Looks fine from the front, but slapdash whatever they were thinking of on back. :beer:

Hi Rick,

What would be the point in removing the backing though? :violent: All the devices are there... :unsure:

Any idea on a rough value on this bar?

Kind regards

Matt
