    Default Sudeten Medal with Prague Castle Bar parade mount

    Friends

    For your review, a parade mounted Sudeten Medal with Prague Castle Bar. This parade mount is in very nice condition and I couldn't pass it up. Not to mention it goes with my recent ribbon bar with the Prague Castle. This award was given over a million times and the Castle Bar was awarded only 135K times. It's nice to see some survive in decent condition.

    Incidentally, Heydrich made his office at the Prague Castle and according to WIKI, he wore the crown jewels of the Kings of Czechoslovakia. In Czechoslovakia it is said that wearing the crown jewels is a curse and wouldn't you know it.....Heydrich was dead within a year of wearing it. The castle dates back to the 900 AD.

    Just out of interest are the prongs the same as on my example?

    The bar is attached to the ribbon and metal plate. I'm afraid I'd have to pry it up to see if the prongs are the same and it doesn't look like I'd be able to reattach it as tightly as it's attached. So I don't think I'll be prying it up. You have a lovely example there, Nick!

    No worries mate

    I am hoping to dispell a thought that only original Prague bars have the wide prongs.

    I am sure a maker produced these bars with the thin prongs

    Oh, I see what you mean. Standby, I'll try to "feel" what might be under the fabric....

    Nick, just had a physical look and also in the 5th pic down, it can be seen that the triangular prongs have been used. Details, details!
