    An original bar and quite a common combination. The second medal is the Ehrenkreuz fur Frontkampfer 1914/18 or commonly known as the Hindenburg medal. It was awarded to veterans of WW1 in combatant, non combatant and next of kin variants.

    There is a superb thread in the Third Reich Orders and Decorations forum about them. Look in the sticky 'Useful Reference Links' thread.

    ww1 vet would have had.

    I'd put the Ehrenkreuz fur Frontkampfer in a WW2 display as it came into being in the 1930s, But it'd be a shame to split the medals up!..
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Yes, it's an Assmann piece. On top is Assmann's "A" trademark; the abbreviation "A & S" is for Assmann & Söhne [= Assmann & Sons].
