I acquired this medal bar from a fellow member many years ago, so long now that I forget his name. It was missing the MVO and had a spurious LSD in the last place, so I fitted a 1905 MVOmdK and an officer's LSD. I'm not sure if this combo is possible, but I think it's a nice looking bar.

Servus VtwinVince,

i think this wasn't a ribbon bar buckle made by an officer. I think that another 
DA and a MVK 1. Form belong here. There are of course other options. Does the 
EK 1870 belong to the ribbon bar?

So the medalbar looks better except for the DA. A DA for NCOs and soldiers 
should go here. In contrast to the 1st class, this DA cross 2nd class could 
only be awarded to officers and higher military officials. The 1st class 
could also be awarded to lower ranks (see attachment)
