MEDALBARS #42831 Imperial Medal Bar
Both of the medals show a little age but are generally very good.
The reverse of the bar has a leather snap rigging along with a large safety pin. This doesn't look period to me but the safety pin is quite old; I can't say for sure. The red velvet backing shows some mothing.
A decent Imperial example here, given that it is the front of the bar we are concerned with.
MEDALBARS #41959C 6 Medal Parade Dress Ribbon Bar

The reverse of the bar is covered in fine green velvet and fitted with a long straight pin.
A very fine looking item here, just perfect for dressing up a pristine uniform display.

This ribbon bar is constructed of lined blue satin set in place over a solid base. In the center is an early silvered Luftwaffe “droop tail” eagle, clutching a swastika. There is minor wear to the high edges of the bird.

This Army Long Service Ribbon is a blue color with a small silver open-winged eagle and swastika attached at the front. The detail to the bird is quite good despite its diminutive size. The ribbon itself is neatly shaped in the form of a bow. It has a button back, presumably for application to a lapel of a civilian suit.

This Army Four Year Medal is about the size of a fifty-cent piece. It is a silver finish over what appears to be a copper or brass base. The medal features a Wehrmacht closed-wing style eagle which clutches a mobile swastika. The details throughout the eagle are outstanding. Around the bird is the purpose of the medal "Treue Dienste Im Der Wehrmach".
On the reverse is a large number "4" raised out of the center and the number is surrounded by a wreath of oak leaves. This medal is mounted to a blue ribbed ribbon which has a parade mount on the reverse. The reverse is a deep blue wool color and has a proper safety-like pin attached.
The reverse of the bar is covered in red velvet. There is some mothing in a couple of areas and the bar is retained with a large pin in the appropriate length.

There are two other ribbons in the center which probably designate which part of Imperial Germany this original officer was from, but I don’t know their identification. The ribbon is a little bit soiled and it has a long pin on the reverse.
I have never seen a cluster like this, but what has been done is the seven awards, that this officer received, have had the ribbons miniaturized and all put together, staged so that each ribbon can be seen individually from the edges.
At the top of the award is a crown over a set of crossed swords. The top ribbon also appears to be the Iron Cross. This is definitely an Imperial cluster, and must have been worn probably on the lapel of the original owner's civilian jacket. There is a button on the reverse, which is marked, "Solide/meumeit".
A very nice award here, and something which the Imperial collector should easily be able to determine the medals received by the color of the ribbons.

This fine parade mount consists of two medals, one coming from the Imperial time and the other from the Third Reich. The early example is a Hindenburg medal with swords. It is a good bronze strike having the dates, “1914” and “1918”. The medal has the parade mount, black, red and white striped satin ribbon.
The other medal attached is an RLB type being the style with large aluminum medallion with swastika in the center. The medallion has a wreath of oak leaves running around the border. The parade mount ribbon is a purple color having stripes of red, white, and black on both of the edges. This parade mount has a green felt backing and a large pin to accommodate the mounting on the uniform. A nice item here and a parade mount not seen too often.

This Medal Bar is a beauty, having three medals. The first two medals are an Imperial Iron Cross and a Hindenberg medal. Both of these medals are in excellent condition throughout, as is the backing ribbon.
The third medal is a Police Long Service example, which is in silver. The Long Service Medal is a cross device having a wreathed Police eagle and swastika superimposed in the center area. The backing ribbon is blue and has a woven silver Police eagle on the accompanying parade ribbon.
The backing for this bar is a dark green wool with long pin. Accompanying the parade medals bar is the parade ribbon bar which has the same ribbons and has a small Police eagle wreath and crossed swords over the Hindenburg cross ribbon. A great pair of parade accouterments here, which would really look good on a proper Police uniform.
