Hello gentlemen,


I have some ribbons taken from a post-1957 German uniform. I would like to count on your help to discover which are the last 3 ribons of this set.

Thanks

The last 3 awards are the Hungarian Order of Merit with Swords, the Bulgarian Order for Military Merit with Swords, and the Romanian Order of the Star with Swords.  The silver straps/bars behind these 3 devices might represent classes of these decorations higher than merely "medal-bar grade" but, then again, they may not. 

Any chance you could show the entire ribbon bar set?  It looks very interesting.

Hello,

very thanks for the tips and clarifications !!!

Are you sure that the last ribon is the Romanian Order of the Crown? I searched for it on the internet and its tape is only in shades of blue

Of course I will post a photo of all the ribbons.

Romanian Order of the Star.

You're right.  This ribbon was used only prior to 1932 for the Order of the Crown.  It was then used for the Order of the Star after 1932.  The enamel on the device also looks red to me and there's no crown on top of the device.  Since I collect mostly Imperial and Weimar, the ribbon tripped me up.  I edited my previous post.

Great looking bar of a Knights Cross Holder.  Who is it?

Grande barra olhando de uma cruzeta de cavaleiros. Quem é esse?

Daniel is right. It belonged to LtGen Gerhard Matzky. I got some pieces of it from the general's son's widow.

In the lot, these pins also came. I would like to know if you could help me to identify some and say if any of them are from the war period. But I believe that most are post-war.

Some pins I was not able to identify very well such as the pin "R", the iron cross inscribed "G.D.R", the moose and the pin with the inscriptions DSK / VdS.

There is a medal from the veterans' association. I didn't find much reference about.

There is also a Japanese box with 3 pins that I don't know about. I just know that the box refers to the 10 year anniversary of the revival of the Japan-German Society.
But the pins do not appear to be the original contents of the box. They were just kept there.

Thanks for everyone's answers!

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
