Ribbon bar identification - Steps to do?

Recommended Posts

Hey there,

so this is my first post here. I am collecting for around 6 months now and finally found my favorite topic : ribbon bars.

Next week  I'm gettinger another Imperial ribbon bar and it looks like it could be identified. Are there any steps I can do myself to research the name of the original owner?


Best regards,

Hi and welcome Nicolas,

you have to take some money in your hands and buy

the several Verleihungslisten from Lundström / Krause.

But when the ribbon bar has arrived at your home, please

show it to us with some good pictures from the front- and 

rear side and you´ll get help.

Kind regards

Welcome here.

First you need to buy some books about what you're collect. Then you need to learn about order and medals. Don't hesitate to read posts and ask questions here.

About books, you can find in the Autengruber's website a lot of Roll's books. They are very important to have them if you want to do your own research.
