    Default German Ribbon Bars real?

    This would be my very second post. I am curious to know the authenticity of two German ribbon bars which I found at a local antique store. The first bares three ribbons and the second, two. The first and second both bare the iron cross second class.

    On the first bar the second ribbon is unknown to me (I don't know very much) and the third appears to be the long service ribbon.

    On the second bar the second ribbon appears to be the hanseatic cross.

    I apologize, I don't have a picture of the reverse of each. As I recall, the 3 ribbon bar had red felt.

    Thoughts?

    P.S.

    Also, there was an infantry assault badge stick pin. Again, I did not take a better picture.

    Yep - like them all.

    You are correct with the others - the Hanseatic Cross is for Hamburg.
    The WWI ribbon that you don't know is the Mecklenburg-Schwerin
    Military Merit Cross - it's the equivalent of the Iron Cross
    2nd Class for that particular State.........
