Here is a newly arrived medalbar from a brave soldier (most probably non commissioned rank). His name remains unknown untill now and he was either a inhabitant from the small dutchy of Reuss or Sachsen-Altenburg. Hence the 2 medals.

The bar has;

* EK2

* Hindenburg Cross

* Reuss (Silver) medal with Swords

* Sachsen-Altenburg - SEHO - (Silver) medal, last model

* Long Service awards (Prussia) - 15 Years

* Long Service awards - 25 years

The Sachsen-Altenburg piece is a award piece and with its 933 awards a not so common medal.

All opinions are more then welcome.

Cordial greetings,

Hello Guys,

Thank you. Indeed three awards (for normal soldiers) for valor. A combination not so often found. I think there is a large chance that this soldier was actually part of the I.R. 96, as that regiment was composed out of parts of for example Reuss and Sachsen-Altenburg. But that is a guess offcoarse :).

Both silver medals appear to be early award pieces.

Cordial greetings,
