Dear fellow collectors

A friend of mine has been offered this medalbar for sale, he asked me for my opinion and when I saw the pictures I was fairly certain I had seen it before and if I'm not mistaken it was here on GMIC. Does anyone remember?

Kind regards and thanks in advance, Laurentius

Just to be clear, and because there were others with the Rufname Gebhard, he was Gebhard Hans Emil, *22.6.1865 in Straußberg, †18.3.1946 in Putbus.  He had three brothers:

Karl Hans Gebhard Graf v. der Schulenburg-Wolfsburg, *26.9.1867 in Simnau, †8.9.1950 in Martinsbüttel; Ritter des Ordens pour le Mérite, char. Gen.Lt.a.D.

• Hans Gebhard Graf v. der Schulenburg-Wolfsburg, *28.6.1870 in Bremen, †8.11.1946 in Potsdam; Maj.d.L.a.D.

• Friedrich Wilhelm Graf v. der Schulenburg-Wolfsburg, *28.3.1873 in Bremen, †14.3.1928 in Potsdam; Oberstlt.a.D.

Hi Dave,


thank you for your information supply.

Today I have received the medal bar. It's really a beauty.

Maybe the Chilean Order is on a wrong ribbon? I know this order on a dark blue ribbon.

I do not have any information regarding this order.

Regards Seeheld

    • 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.
