a small group with boxes  

Hi everybody today I am an happy collector. I have received today the box for the Kriegsverdienstkreuz. I show here all my boxes from Reuss Christophe

One of mine, a REK3XmKr:

Nothing as spectacular as Kronenorden's bar but this ribbon bar just arrived. I am curious about the blue and white ribbon after the Reuss. It looks like a Finnish Medal of Liberty 1st class. However, it appears to have had some type of device pinned to it and I am not aware of this award having any. Any suggestions?

Kronenorden

You are correct on the last ribbon. I agree that the colors look like it is a Bavarian award but I could not find any that match. The closest Bavarian match would be a long service award but the blue is different. It does however look like the Finnish Medal of Liberty 1st class (pictured below, 3rd award). However, no ribbon bar device was worn on this ribbon that I know of.

By the way, spectacular Reuss bar! Should you ever wish to part with it......

Regards,

Mark

Kronenorden

I thought the LS ribbon for Bavaria had two white stipes, not one? Also, it would not explain why it had some type of device pinned to the ribbon.

    • 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.
