A group which demonstrates most ways how to wear awards

Recommended Posts

The medal bar of an unknown officer shows the following awards:

1. Königreich Preußen, Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse 1914, OEK 1909

2. Königreich Preußen, Kreuz der Ritter mit Schwertern des Königlichen Hausordens der Hohenzollern 1861, OEK 1789 (FR 938)

3. Deutsches Reich, Kriegsverdienstkreuz 2.Klasse 1939, OEK 3836 (missing)

4. Großherzogtum Oldenburg, Friedrich August Kreuz 2. Klasse 1914, OEK 1563

5. Großherzogtum Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Militär-Verdienstkreuz 2.Klasse 1914, OEK 1352

6. Großherzogtum Hessen (-Darmstadt), Allgemeines Ehrenzeichen für Tapferkeit 1894, OEK 884

7. Deutsches Reich, Ehrenkreuz des 1.Weltkrieges/Frontkämpferkreuz, OEK 3803 (Herstellerbezeichnung: „R.V.13 Pforzheim“)

8. Königreich Preußen, Landwehr Dienstauszeichnung 2.Klasse 1913, OEK 1979

The Friedrich August Kreuz 1st class is a variety which was unknown (to me). The two pins on the last picture are still unknown to me.

Any comments are more than welcome!

That is a great Nachlass, any idea who the recipient was?

Not yet, unfortunately. However, the combination of the House Order of Hohenzollern and the Landwehr Dienstauszeichnung 2nd class seems to be rare enough to leave some space for hope.
