    Could it be a younger Hermann von Francois...

    That would not be possible as Hermann von François was not a Franco-German war veteran as is this chap. 


    What are our thoughts on the decoration in last place on his medal bar? The ribbon looks like a Hessen Philipp.

    Hi Glenn,


    most likely the knight 2nd class with swords was not a 1870/71 wartime Philipp but a later peacetime award, which was automatically awarded with swords to Soldiers until the 1890ies.


    The Philipp knight 1st class was awarded after that and therefore without swords.
