Collectors, I found that this group of Austrian medal bars that were auctioned on Emedal is now in China. But I think it looks weird, because there are many unreasonable places. So I want to ask you, have you seen this weird combination? Or is this a fake?
Question 1: The combination did not see the combined Austrian medal nor the Sudeten medal. .
2: Shouldn't 25 years of service be side by side with 12 years of service? How come alone
3: Why does the hook look different when it goes through?
Here I ask collectors to help me, thank you!





The Austrian WW1 memorial looks like it was added later

I doubt the originality of this bar.  The construction and combination reminds me of the Austrian Faker.

But the hardware is original.

Absolutely agree! All these items are quite easy to get collected. I think the ribbon mounting of the left part (the Austro-Hungarian items - post-Anschluss remount) can be original, albeit enhanced/spoiled by adding the three final items. Just look at the diffent ribbon mounting.

Yes, it should. And the Austrian Kriegserinnerungsmedaille should go right after the Hindenburg Cross.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
