I have had this medal bar a few years. Unfortunately, the Zahringer Lion Order is missing. The combination is perhaps uncommon?

The hook/clip on the reverse is interesting. Would it have been to keep the medal bar sitting straight on the tunic?

Kind regards,
Pierce

Dear P.F.

The vertical piece of metal keeps pressure on the pin, to assure it doesn't open, this would cause the medalbar to fall off. We usually see this with pre-war bars. Nice touch.

Kind regards, Laurentius

Definitely an uncommon combination, but probably neither unique nor identifiable. From what is there, and mainly from what isn't, this must have been a junior officer's bar, the Zähringer Löwe almost definitely being a knight's cross 2nd class with swords.

I would add a 2nd class or 2nd class with oaks.
