One more common medal in the ribbon bar threads, but without it's own thread. Show your singles.

This is my kind of "schumtzig" example...

Very nice medals, and rujabs box is excellent, not often seen! What's the meaning of the plain bar on the ribbon?

Would the bar not be a wiederholungspange to show a second award?

Hello :

Ref.# 10

Thanks for showing the decoration with its case which makes the appearance very precious.

Bernhard H. Holst

Agreed. Great piece.

Thanks everyone for extending the thread...

I have never seen one of those boxes before! Are they private purchase, or did higher ranks get them in a box, and lower ranks in a packet?

Here's a look at the wiederholungspange on the Austro-Hungarian Tapferkeitsmedaille. I'm not trying to insist that this is the same as the one shown on the Hesse medal; just that they look alike in two German-speaking countries. I hope someone can offer a definitive answer. Who is our wiederholungspange expert?

Best,

Hugh

Hugh, I also immediately thought of the similarity to the Wiederholungspange on the Austro-Hungarian Tapferkeitsmedaille, but also have no verifying reference.

I was also thinking about wiederholung spange, but never seen one before, neither on other German awards. Was that medal even possible to be awarded twice or more times? I've seen a picture of a bar with two Hessen medals (Niemann's catalog, I think), but never "in real" or on ribbon bar.

That's such a great Feldspange with this ultra-rare, but inofficial clasp, Rudi!

:love:

Trust me, there is really no need for a Wiederholungsspange expert, when our Hessen experts - and all books on the topic! - are clear in this point: The Hessen bravery medal could not be awarded twice. Thus, no need for a Spange. Other than many Austrian-Hungarian "Great War" awards, it was unusual, to say the least, to award the very same award several times in the German states.

These beautiful cases for Hessen awards were official. From my understanding, it wasn't about rank. The cases are pre- and early war, and later, when resources got narrow, they switched to envelopes. It was most similar with Baden, where even the lower classes of the Zähringer Löwen order were awarded in sealed envelopes...
