Tztztz...lovely nice little bar...everything fits including the swords on the ribbon (showing that the former owner awarded
the silver cross during the war 1870/71 and "awarded" in 1912 as a veteran).

By the way, here is a very similar medalbar from my collection, unfortunately without swords....

Best regards
Roman

This is the first time Ive seen that medal on a bar.  How many times was it awarded?  Is it a valor medal?

No, not only a valor award, it was also awarded by non-combatants, e.g. teachers.
It was somehow turned into a valor award for the veterans of the war 1870/71 by spending later the swords for the ribbon.
