3rd Reich Medal bars... Show Yours!


Recommended Posts

HI Stormrider, 

Nice bars.  Your Hindenburg Cross with the clips on the reverse is for mounting it to a larger multi place medal bar.  Single parade mounts were made with these backing clips so they could be attached to a larger metal plate with corresponding slits and a pin back.  The individually mounted medals were then mounted to this larger metal plate to create a large medal bar.  

I do not have a picture of one but it is similar to the ribbon bars of the same construction type.

Hi Gary, I figured as such but with this hobby (and that medal in particular), anything goes. ;)

A bit battered (laundered) but still impressive 11 place Ribbon Bar, I'd love to know which Austrian Ribbon pertains to which medal. :)

We can assume it´s an officer´s ribbon bar, therefore the austrian ribbons would (but must not!) be in common: Militärverdienstkreuz 3. Kl., Silberne Militärverdienstmedaille, Bronzene Militärverdienstmedaille, Karl-Truppenkreuz, Hindenburgkreuz, Österr. Kriegsmedaille, Jubiläumskreuz 1908 and Mobilisierungskreuz 1912-13.

Regards

Christian

Hello, I have this badge of hand-to-hand combat, the seller assured me it is original, but I would like to know other opinions, I would appreciate someone telling me what you think.

Best regards.

Wow, Gary, did you rob a museum! :)   Most of my medal bars have ribbons with a bit of dirt and a couple of them have a small stain or two.  Every one of your bars look like they were put under glass in a museum as soon as they were made.  Awesome collection!

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • 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 .
