(After the creation of the 1914-18 Ehrenkreuz in 1934, the latter two were no longer permitted for wear.)

    Bringing this thread back up with a little update to include various new acquisitions made since my last post in October.

    First, a few singles:

    Top left, a ribbon bow for the Commemorative Medal for the Austrian Anschluss. Interestingly, the button is marked in French: "NE COUPANT PAS LE FIN" (An online translation tool tells me this means "Do not cut the end"...)

    Top right, a ribbon bow for the Ostmedaille.

    Bottom, the Prussian 1916 Kreuz für Kriegshilfe in ribbon bow and ribbon roll form. The ribbon bow is rather big and of quite simple construction.

    The last for today. Truth be told, I have already posted these items in my thread on the 1914/18 Ehrenkreuz, but they also fit in here thematically and I really like them a lot, so I hope this repeat is alright:

    Top, two different styles of ribbon bow with miniature decoration pendant [Bandschleife mit anhängender Ordensverkleinerung] representing the Frontkämpfer class and below them another one for the Hinterbliebenen class of the 1914/18 Ehrenkreuz; the latter is unfortunately missing its means of attachment.

    This type of mounting would later be reserved for a small number of higher wartime decorations, such as the Knight's Crosses of the Iron Crass or War Merit Cross and the Pour le Merite.

    Top: KVK2 With Swords
    Center left: 1914 EK2/Unspecified "Long Service" Award
    Center right: 1939 EK2/Ostmedaille
    Bottom: 1939 EK2/KVK2 With Swords/Ostmedaille

    I am very pleased with this last one. Ribbon roll combinations for three decorations are relatively rare, and this one is in fine condition and really neat. Just to illustrate how small these are, here it is again with a little scale reference:
