Help to identify them.

You have a medal bar where only one medal matches the ribbon. Left to right are Prussia 1864 War Medal (a Spangenstueck, I believe, check for writing on rim), Prussia 1864 Alsen Cross, Prussia 1866 Koeniggraetz Cross, Prussia 1870 War Medal (again, check for rim inscription) and Prussia 1864 Dueppel Cross. The ribbons are actually, from left, Wuerttemberg Merit Medal, unknown, Wuerttemberg long service decoration, Prussia 1870 War Medal and the Centenary Medal.

Alsen, Königgrätz & Düppel crosses looks to be also replacements or Spangenstücke. Awarded ones should have wide, grooved loops. Besides, original Düppel Cross was made of white alloy.

Please be aware that the ribbons on the medal bar do not correspond to the medals. The exception is the 1870/71 commemorative medal.

Isn´t there a possibility of second ribbon being for Schwarzer Adlerorden?
In that case, first ribbon would be for Orden der Württembergischen Krone.
The third medal I know to have yellow ribbon was Prussian 1861 Coronation medal, but I don´t think this one would be mounted before military service award.

There are a number of 'theoretical' combinations here, but based on the type of bar and the definite awards, I don't think it's an officer's bar, for a number of reasons.
