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.

    • 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.
