Original Item: One-of-a-kind. This is a very nice genuine medal bar, owned by a German soldier who was in service since the turn of the century and then in WWI. They may have also served during the Weimar Period, but there are no medals from that era.
The colors on the ribbons are mostly unfaded, except for the Iron Cross ribbon, which shows deterioration in the white stripes. The metals are in good condition, with the expected patina of age.
This set of 3 medals is offered in very good condition, and is mounted on a steel backing board lined on the back with gray canvas, and has three hooks for the three medals. It has a safety pin attachment at the top of the bar, and it consists of the following medals:
– Imperial German WWI Iron Cross 1914 2nd Class Medal
– Pre-WWI China Commemorative Coin Medal 1901
– Pre-WWI Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Medal aka Centenary Medal 1897
