    Default Help with 8 medal bar set

    This is the last of the 'collection' I was offered, and the most likely to be genuine. The ribbons are well faded, but the medals are in fair condition. The ribbon bar is in good shape too. Any opinions welcome.

    Everything looks fine to me too.

    Looks good to me too, any chance of a reverse shot of the EK2? I think it might be a Juncker but the obverse is heavily worn and difficult to tell for sure.

    The ribbon bar is fake. Ohio parts bar. look @ the catch. Snipped brass. bad.

ID:	195762Sorry, I missed these ones. As these seem to be the only genuine items in the 'collection' can anyone give me an approximate value on the bar?
    Cheers,

    also the war merit medal would not be on a bar filled with combat and occupation medals...

    As said, the 'War Merit Medal' was a civil award !

    Also, the ribbon bar shows the War Merit Cross 'with swords', where the medal bar
    has a 'without swords' cross attached.

    Plus there should be TWO Long Service awards, but only one medal is present
    on the medal bar - if indeed the ribbon bar is associated with this set - these
    are always worn as a '12' and '4' Year pair...........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    I agree, the awards themselves look ok, although the condition is not the best. The awards do not tally up though. Lets get this straight - WW1 non combatant, WW2 combatant then WW2 non combatant with only 4 years service!
