Does somebody has 5000+ bucks for me? :)

Yes, both very nice. I am still looking for a NC bar with a "simple" RAO3 on it.

I am looking since years. But i cannot find one.

I only have KO3, KO4 and RAO4 ones.

There´s nearly nothing of  prussian decorations , which Mr. T hasn`t got.😜

Yes, they are scarce too. I was lucky and found one, when I started collecting medal bars years ago. Unfortunately without a name.

Also a nice one - mir würde schon eine mit RAO3 ausreichen.

I think he was a higher official - Beamter im höheren Dienst - in a higher authority like a Oberegierungsrat, Direktor, Geheimrat or

something in that way. I have worked through the Siekmann 1917 and the HDR18 and Intendanturliste 1929 several times - and i had luck to find some

possible recipients of some of my bars. But that`s a lot of work. I did a lot of markings for finding EK2w recipients better.

One of the problems is, that lower decorations like Centenar, KDM70, Chinamedal.... are often not listed - or sometimes i could prove

with Papiernachlässe, that not all informations are correct. (for example with Ministerialbürodirektor Rettig, Rechnungshof DR, or Ministerialamtmann Reimann)

This time in the corners of the net there`s a interesting bar - but it is too expensive as i think.

I could find the recipient because of one striking decoration he had.

A Zahlmeister. And i could find more infos with old Adressbücher.

One more mystery solved.  Übung macht den Meister.

Nur kein Moos ansetzen (Das Boot)
