Got a new one today for my collection. It arrived safely from Israel. Thank you very very much to bryansk for that nice piece.

The medal bar belonged to an unnamed wuerttemberg soldier  (i couldn`t find a pic of him in my database :(.. )

He got the:

IC 2nd class - the core looks like a piece made of Godet Berlin

Wuerttemberg golden MMM - it is a so called weimar piece. These were made of gilded bronce.

They have no Stempelschneider on it and Mr. Wilhelm has another look on it.

He also has the (silbernes) Verdienstkreuz mit Schwerter. This one was made by the Stuttgart mint (all those pieces were not stamped)

So earned it in the mid 1916 or later. Only ~ 2300 of them were awarded.

The hindycross is stamped G 4 (unknown marker)

At the end the 15 years LS Cross made of Tombak.

He has the typical combination of an "Vizefeldwebel/etatmässiger Feldwebel or Offizier-Stellvertreter" , and he 

was still alive in the mid 1930s (hindy cross)

Yes, i am happy, to have one more. In most times you find only gilded ones - 

bad times (Weimar, III.rd Reich, the first years after the war) - so many of the medals

were sold or melted to made a piece of jewellery (Ehering....)
