Wink Ultimate medal bar

Dear Imperial Collectors

I have seen many great medal bars posted by you guys, some of you even reconstruct several famous persons' medal bars. I think most of you guys who collect or reconstruct medal appreciated the history and personal stories behind those medal bars but have you guys ever thought about reconstructing a medal bar based on quality and design of the orders and awards? I want to construct a medal bar some day and here is the list of orders and awards I would want for my bar.

1870 EK2 with Oak and 1914 bar
Red eagle order 3rd(if possible) or 4th class with crown and swords
Crown order 3rd class with swords
Royal Hohenzollern knight with swords

Military Order of Max Joseph knight
Military Merit Order 3rd Class with crown Swords
Military Merit Order 4th Class with crown Swords

Military Order of St. Henry knight
Albert Order Knight 1st Class with crown and swords
Merit order knight's 1st class with swords

Order of the Württemberg crown knight's cross with lions and swords
Military merit order knight's cross with crown

Grand Duchies, Duchies and Principalities
Baden's military Karl Friedrich merit order knight's cross
Order of Berthold I knight's cross with swords
Order of the Zahringen lion 1st class with Oak and swords
Military Merit Order of Charles Frederick knight's cross

Oldenburg's house and merit order of duke Peter Friedrich Ludwig knight's cross with swords

Brunswick's Henry the Lion Order Knight's Cross 1st class

Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach's house order of the White Falcon knight's cross 1st and 2nd class with swords
The Ducal Saxe-Ernestine house order knight's cross 1st and 2nd class with swords

Foreign countries
Turkey's order of Osmania 4th class with swords

Russia's order of Saint Stanislas 3rd class with swords

Of course all these orders above must be made of real gold if possible. I don't know if I will ever be able to find or afford all these orders and construct this super medal bar but this is the dream I have.

Best regards

Default Say,

You aren't by any chance one of those so-called pituary giants, are you? Because that is what you would have to be in order to sport your medal bar around. Don't get me wrong, it would be pretty keen, and the medal bar groupie chicks would dig it.

Only cost about 80 thousand too.

I can only think in up-to-three-figures!

Good Luck,
