    Default My Medal Bars or Ordensspange

    Ok here they are so far! All comments are welcome including questions about authenticity. I beleive all these to be real but Im not an expert. I only have one book on a relating subject but was not very helpful so I look at the construction, take mental notes, and compare. Im keeping an eye out for a complete book on this subject but I feel that Imperial stuff gets overshadowed by TR stuff. Anyway. Also feel free to post your bars here as well. I want to see them and also make comparisons with others that are out there. I will post more as they come.

    OK. Heres where I got started. I picked each of these up for the same price as an EK2 would cost alone so I thought cool!

    The metal backed one is marked DRGM. I dont know the makers of the EKs because I dont tamper with the ribbons.

    I beleive a a nice EK can hold its own. Even though these are common, I love a bar that kicks things off with an EK.

    I cant see a mark on the first, but the second EK is marked SW.

    Baden silver service medal and 9 year service.

    Had to get this one for the Schwarzburg-Sonderhausen Verdienst Im Kriege in Silber! I also thought it was interesting to see the Hilfsdienst medal in the mix.

    I dont normally collect Austrian or the like but they are always welcome on a bar! You can see where the Bulgarian one may have been added.
