Very nice bars.
The ribbon of the MVK on the first bar was for war merit, given to military officials, military priests etc

Very fine.
The MVO is from the manufacturer Weiss.
I think golden medaillons. Please show us the backside.

Yes it is the production till 1916 with golden medaillons by Weiss.
Very nice officers-bar. The MVO has a fine, old patina with its own caracter.
Typical bavarian bar, the MVO is in front of the prussian EK.
regards Andreas

Hi Walter,

 

what rank had this man...with officers DA and the MVK on the "Beamten"-ribbon? Very Interesting combination...

The bearer was Joseph Koch, paymaster of the 1st Foot Artillery Regiment. 
The special feature is the MVK 1. Classse Krone and Schwerter, one of the 
few originals, ca. 150 awards in total.

    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.  
    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian
