If we're sharing Napoleonic bars, I'll contribute.

Here's an original mounting that came from a house clearance. Contains:
EK2 - 1813, Wideframe (Serif core type), KDM 1814 (round cornered variation) and the 2.Model of the 25 year service cross.



Best regards,

Daniel

And.....a Prussian bar with the silver merit medal Lippe-Detmold.

The bar belongs to gendarme Hufen from Rietberg (near Guetersloh):

Solomon,

Outstanding bars. 

Komtur,

That 1813 set is out of this world.  I agree, they look like they've been together a long time. 

Tompress,

Are the ribbons stuck to the bar still or simply lying on?  Very nice set... I love it.

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain.
