    We need Santi's expertise on this one.
    I don't believe it's original but that's just a guess from me.
    The only all yellow ribbon I know of is the 1897 Centenary medal and it would not
    be mounted twice on a bar.

    Thank you for your opinion!

    As I know Civil Merit Medal 1738-1918 (Baden) and Cross to the Military Order of Carl (Wurttemberg) has also yellow ribbon.

    The "feldschnalle" or "ordenschnalle" or old style ribbon bars that we all know are formed with a double ribbon of each decoration, on a metal plate with the geometric shape of a trapezoid.

    The feldschnalle that our colleague Michael shows us is made up of the ribbon of the Albrechtsorden and the Centenarmedaille.

    The ribbons look old and the thread with which they are sewn on the reverse also looks old.

    Two ribbons of the same award in the same feldschnalle is something very, very rare but there are cases, in those awards with different degrees

    But two equal ribbons of two decorations on the same feldschnalle is something that I have never seen.

    In addition, the medal of the centenary of Kaiser Wilhelm I, was awarded only once to each recipient, just like Gregg said.

    Although this feldschnalle could probably be made with original ribbons from the period, I think it could not really exist. IMHO is a fantasy item.

    But of course it is really attractive

    I add a new element to the discussion. In a quick search on ebay.de I just found this Baden Feldschnalle .....

    I have finally found a possibility of an ordenschnalle with two identical yellow ribbons. Certainly you have to belong to a regiment of the Grand Duchy of Baden ...

    The ribbon of this medal and that of the Cenetenarmedaille are indistinguishable .....

    Thank you verych much for your help and wide range of information.
    So it is small possibility that my ribbon bar is authentic?
    Second green/white ribbon can be for Honor Cross of Albreht, which has silmilar ribbon for Albrechtorden?
