Default Some of my favorite Medal Bars

I wanted to share some photos of my medal bar collection for all to appreciate. I have always learned a lot from the medals on each medal bar and the story it tells about the Soldier who earned the medals.

I don't know if a thread like this exists and if it does please let me know where it is located. I would love to see your medal bars as well!
Enjoy & Happy Hunting,
Vince

Really nice bars from different periods. Those post ww2 bars with federal german awards are quite neglected.

Just one remark - first bar in post #4 should probably have Franco-Prussian war medal (1870-71) instead of Hindenburg cross?
