    Default A few ribbon bar questions

    I bought these ribbon bars recently along with a uniform button for $45, and I wanted to ask a few questions, because these are the first I've bought and I don't know much about them. I believe the ribbons are (clockwise from left) KvKII with swords (missing), Heer 4 year and Memel, WWI Iron Cross second class, WWI service cross with swords and 25 year faithful service and, lastly, KvKII with swords. Am I correct with my identification, or are these actually fake? Also, do you guys know if I overpaid for them? Finally, what are the medal bits along with the ribbon bars? I think they might be American, but I don't know.

    Thanks in advance for any additional insight into these!

    It isn't the Memel Medal, it's the Sudetenland Annexation Medal with Prague Castle Bar...
    The bottom single bars are US First Lieutenant, the double-bars are US Captain...
    cheers, Glenn

    Thank you! I rarely buy medals and awards, but I liked this one. Can you tell from the photo if they're genuine ones?

    Everything looks good to me, friend...You're already aware that the small sword-device is missing from the KvKII...

    Thank you!

    As a side note, I have a small box of U.S. military stuff that I will donate to the raffle if I get enough to make it worthwhile. It sometimes comes along with German militaria that I buy.
