    Happy Sunday morning everyone.
    I just found this lot of ribbon bars for sale, in a popular Spanish collection page.
    As you can see it is about eight ribbon bars. I have numbered them from 1 to 8.
    The first four are not a problem for me, because they are Spanish, typical of a fighter of the Blue Division.
    1. East Front Medal
    2. German Medal for Spanish volunteers of the Blue Division
    3. Spanish War Cross; and
    4. Red Cross of Military Merit.

    My problem is the other four, numbered from 5 to 8.
    I have no idea what country or what time they are. I apologize if this is not very suitable for this section of the forum, although I got the feeling that they could be from an allied nation.
    Please any help is welcome.
    Thanks in advance.

    #5 ?? unsure Italy Army Long Service Command Military Medal Silver 986 Decoration 15 years Italian Republic Mint 1953 - Dracomedals Medals-Orders Medals Orders Decorations

    seems like on the ribbon bar itself, a star should be in place but maybe yours isn't present?

    Hey Tabstabs1964, just curious if you found out any info regarding numbers 5-8. I’ve spent some time just surfing aimlessly. Tricky one you have!

    Hi SirCaleb.
    Thank you very much for your help and interest.
    Unfortunately I could not find out anything about ribbons 6 and 8.
    I contacted the seller in case he was willing to split the lot, but he said no. Although it has greatly reduced the price for the entire lot.
    I do not know what to do, I guess I'll end up buying it.
    I asked him if he knew what country the ribbons were. He replied that he did not know but that they all came from an old military effects shop in Barcelona.
    I spent several hours looking for ribbons, country by country ....

    By the way, the fact that ribbons 5 and 7 are Italian agrees very well with the fact that they come from the liquidation of an old military effects store in Barcelona.

    #8 corresponds to MEDALLA ITALIANA GUERRA CIVIL ESPAŅOLA as per these pictures which I'm not sure are 100% accurate as sometimes ribbons are attached to the wrong medal for promoting a sale. pardon the poor pictures, just a quick snapshot of the screen:

    Thank you Sir, here is the same medal again to confirm it's configuration. The colors are faded but nonetheless the same.

    Not to confuse the situation further but i found the same ribbon on a different Italian medal "MEDALLA VOLUNTARIOS GUERRA CIVIL FASCISTAS ITALIANOS DEL BATALLON BERMEO - FLECHAS NEGRAS" I believe this may be a case where the wrong ribbon was attached to a medal for sales purposes.

    Definitely they look like ribbons of decorations belonging to the members of CTV "Corpo Truppe Volontarie" of our civil war in Spain.
