MEDAL BAR – TWO PLACE

SKU: 02-298

$495.00

This is a very unusual combination for a medal bar. It has two places. From left to right we see the following:

*Red Eagle Order 4th Class. This is the final pattern of the Red Eagle, which was offered from 1879-1918. The pattern is easily identified by its pebbled arms. The 4th Class, while the same size as the 3rd Class, has silver arms. The 3rd Class Red Eagle is the first class to exhibit enameled arms. The enamel center is in excellent condition with no visible cracks. 4th Class Red Eagle’s hallmarks typically appear on the 6 o’clock arm’s edge. The example does not exhibit a manufacturer’s hallmark. The cross is clearly made of silver.

*War Service Cross.

The 4th Class Red Eagle was very often awarded to civilians from the middle or upper classes. This is a fine medal bar.
