Default Prussian Lifesaving Medals

Having a heck of a time finding a Lifesaving medal (and the right model) for this medal bar. Can any explain the odd sequence of medals?

Here is also my other one. While a rather low level collecting interest of mine, I like to pick up bars with the 1864/ 1866/ 1871 Campaign medals.

Could it be that the Ribbon in the first Medal Bar belongs to a KO?

It makes no sense to have 2 Landwehr Dienstauszeichnungen in the same Bar, right? And one of them was the 1913 version.

No, it makes no sense. So, I should pull the one on the right and place a KO on the left. Is the ribbon color ok for a KO?

Hi Willi,

Sorry, made a mistake.... Even having many KO in my collection, still made a mistake with the color. Apologies...

Without the KO option, ... it is difficult to follow how the condecorations were sorted out.

Hi Heran, that's ok. The color is lighter on that ribbon than the Dienstauszeichnung, and I find various shades on the KO. All the colors on that bar seem bolder. Just trying to come up with something.

I guess a Type III would be the best match for the bar.

Uwe Bretzendorfer may be a good source for these: he is contactable on facebook.

Chip, I guess a Type IIII would be from 1907-1918. Just one minor difference, from what I understand. Not sure if that would properly fit in with the rest of the bar.

Thanks Sandro, I guess he no longer has a website up.

The important lesson in this matter is never to buy a messed up medal bar, no matter how cheap it is.

Pleasure Willi. Uwe does not, but he is still contactable and occasionally presents items on his Facebook page.
