Hello

Very nice Grant :love: Regretably I don't have any 57 medal bars as yet, but looking at these I feel this gap in my collection will be rectified soon !!

Thanks for showing them.

Hi Grant,

FANTASTIC! :jumping::jumping::jumping::love::love::love: WOW! What I wouldn't give short of my soul for some of those bars... simply beautiful. I'd never even seen mounted bars of 57's till just now... guess I always assumed they had them but never really gave it much thought.

Hey, you ever decide to part with any or come up with any extras let me know and I'll dig and scratch and see if we can work something out. Now to go dig change out of the couch!!!! :lol:

Thanks for sharing! :cheers:

Dan

Nice Bars Grant!! I like the bar with the 1962 Flood Service medal. Do you have any bars with a combination of Bundeswehr medals and TR? I love seeing mixed bars like that!!

interesting!

but what happend to the eastern peoples award?

it looks like it has a little "moved" hanger, isn't off the normal position?

Hi ,

Yes it is a factory error , they have attached the ring to a sword tip instead of in the middle of the swords making it look tilted .

Regards

Grant

Hi Grant -

Yeah, I was enamored of the enamel ( :rolleyes: ) and just had to have it. I figured I probably would not see that combo ever again. It is a super-quality piece with all early medals - there is a huge difference between these and the later stuff that came out in the 70's. Here's a better shot on my piped arty tunic and one of a five-place bar with the Finnish Cross of Liberty:

Nice bars Don :love:

Yes the good thing about the medal bars is that mostly they were made for vets usually in the late 50,s early 60,s so they could wear them on their Bundeswehr uniform and so have nice early quality awards on them . Later made up bars are starting to appear but are easy to spot with silly combo,s .

Hi Sam -

My guess is that the Bulgarian MMO is actually wartime produced. Incredible detail, and I can't see the W. Germans tooling up to produce an award of that quality postr war - the Bulgarians certainly weren't churning out "Fascist" awards under the Sovs. None of the ribbons on the bar glow badly under black light, so I think wartime ribbon was used. The detail on all the medals on that bar are fantastic - the 5 place bar is a later one, and the difference in the medal quality in regards to strike, especially on the LS awards, is marked.

    • 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.
