Hello Everyone,

This pair of Imperial German Medals arrived a few days ago and I wanted to share them with you.

I doubt they are rare but the medal on the right is the Baden Felldienstauszeichnung which was awarded to those who fought in Baden's campaigns. Instituted in 1838 it was retroactive to 1806. I've read that there were bars to this ribbon as well but as you can see this one has none.

I'm fairly confident that this is an original pair.

I hope you like it.

Regards

Brian

Here's a view of the back of the bar and the reverse of the medals.

The hanger for the Baden medal was obviously made for the medal so I don't think this is a case where a medal, or both, were added to an existing ribbon bar.

Any opinions will be welcomed and appreciated as always.

Thanks for taking a look.

Regards

Brian

The reverse view of mine with a slighly different means of attaching the Barden award. Unfortunately missing the mounting pin.

The photo makes that 1870-71 medal look gilded. Is it a private purchase, or just really shiny?

    • 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.
