WWI Austrian Medalbar


Recommended Posts


both medal bars are Austrian ones probably dated back to 30s or 40s. The first one seems to be OK concerning order the precedence of medals. The second one (for officer) is bit strange. First of all above-mentioned order of precedence - Wound Medal (Verwundetenmedaille) must be placed between Karl-Truppen-Kreuz and Austrian Commemorative WWI medal for combatants. Moreover that clasp for 2nd award can't be attached to BMVM (Bronze Signum Laudis) but in this form only to SMVM (Silver Signum Laudis). BMVM couldn't be awarded more than once when repetitive award of this decoration was actually SMVM. "K" on the Silver Bravery Medal is definitely post-war production, it doesn't have correct colour and shape.
