    James, thanks for sharing those beautiful pieces . Interesting to note that the two NSDAP minis are from two different producers, Schickle and ?.



    cheers

    Yes you can see the inside of the box they must have lived in since the 1940s in one of the photos. The box has Treue um Treue inside the lid.

    Thanks for the comments everyone.

    +1

    Ribbons & medals both in perfect shape! Amazing how those ribbons still hold that brilliant white sheen after all this time - must have been a case of being put away and never bothered again for the most part.

    Any maker label on the bars/ribbon backs?

    Very nice group!

    Wow, a reaaaaaly nice and complete grouping! With all kinds of bars/miniatures etc. Very rarely seen together. I really like the minis on buttonhole device, never seen these before. It's also interesting that he had one ribbon bar without Hungary/Bulgaria medals. Perhaps he applied for these two later or just a coincidence?

    You are correct. It couldn't have been constructed pre 1918. Looking at it that way it is a TR bar.

    started a topic Imperial EK2 bar with TR additions

    Imperial EK2 bar with TR additions

    Good day folks

    Here is a really awesome EK2 bar with all sorts of extras.

    Imperial EK2, Combattant's Cross, Nazi Party 15 & 10 Year Faithful Service Crosses, Hungary WW1 Commemorative Medal and Bulgarian WWI Commemorative Medal.

    I don't know if there is an accepted term for medal bars that include Imperial and Third Reich medals but I call them cross over bars. I love them.

    This group belonged to SA Sturmf├╝hrer Alfred Meckenstock. Part of a larger group of items at I have. I haven't been able to find out if he survived WW2.

    Enjoy
