... and here's a medal bar coming from your collection that I bought from you (thanks again for the sweet deal :P:beer: ).

Medals' description:

? Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse (OEK 1909)

? Silberne Medaille Verdienst im Kriege 1914 (OEK 2833)

? Ehrenkreuz f?r Frontk?mpfer (OEK 3803)

? Schlesisches Bew?hrungsabzeichen ?Schlesicher Adler?, 1. Stufe, bruniert (OEK 3299)

? Preussen, DA 2. Modell, 1913-1920, 1. Klasse f?r den Soldatenstand nach 15 Dienstjahren (OEK 1974)

? Polizei-DA, 2. Stufe f?r 18 Jahre (OEK 3527)

The very odd thing about this bar is that the Silesian Eagle is a nice 1st class piece mounted as it was 2nd class.

Medal bar, obverse and reverse for your enjoyment.

Oh yeah. There was a superb 4-place Frack in Germany last week with the 4th. Kl. Cross, no swords in last place. Had it on my "watch list" but he canceled the bids and closed the auction. it was memorable as the 3rd. place order had been stripped off. First Place was a NC EK2, next a Prussian Red Cross Third Class, blank and then the Schwarzburg cross. We suspect the missing piece was a Sax-Weimar White Falcon 1st. (!!!).

I wonder where that bar disappeared to?

I just like Heiko on this one! I too only have two examples from this tiny principality---a ribbon bar and a medal bar.

Consider this, how many of have you seen mounted on medal bars or on ribbon bars in the past year or more? They're "scarce" as our Chairman says.

    • 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.
