Nice originals in woren condition IMO. The EK is wrong placed, you have to turn it around, the front side is the 1914.
Typical 'Home-made' type bar. Indeed - the EK
is sewn on in reverse.........
Thank you Landser I, how much do you think it would be a fair price? (I have to say that this would be my first Iron Croos and bar too)
Thank you Steve, when you say "Home made type bar" is it in a derogative way? or justa that in that time the recipient of the medals did it that way?
Sometimes you see this type of bar - heavy stitch
work on the back. Usually rectangular, as this
one is. A way of saving $$ by doing it
'Professionally' done bars are more often on a
metal plate or assembly - the medals hanging
on small hooks from the front or back - with
a piece of felt covering the entire reverse.
Rather common actually, I wouldn't put a lot
into it. Perhaps around $100. But you can
find better examples.........
Thank you Steve, I'll have it in mind.
Home made medal bars are not all that uncommon.
I have one that is made of a Ek2 ribbon sewn over what looks like a
piece of post card.
The cross on this one is also placed backwards. This has been seen occasionally
even on professionally made bars. It is thought that this was done as some sort
of a protest and was done after the Kaiser abdicated his throne.
