This two-place medal bar holds significant historical value and is a fascinating collector's item. It commemorates the bravery and dedication of a German soldier who served during World War I and the interwar period.

Starting from the left, we see the 1914 Iron Cross 2nd Class on the Combatant's ribbon, awarded for exceptional service during the first year of the war. The Iron Cross was considered the most distinguished and recognizable military decoration of Imperial Germany and symbolizes the bravery, dedication, and sacrifice of the German military personnel.

On the right is the 1914 Military War Service Cross 2nd Class from the Duchy of Braunschweig, which is on a NON COMBATANT'S ribbon, making this medal bar particularly unique and intriguing. This medal was awarded to those who served during the war but were not engaged in combat, such as medical personnel and staff officers. The Duchy of Braunschweig was one of the smallest German states but had a long history of military tradition and excellence.

Both the decorations and ribbons are in excellent condition, and the absence of a pin on the reverse suggests that this medal bar was probably mounted on a uniform or in a display case. The catch is still in place, adding to the authenticity of this historical artifact.

This two-place medal bar is a valuable and rare collector's item, representing the dedication and service of the German soldiers who served their country during a critical period in history. It highlights the role played by non-combatant personnel during the war and the importance of the Duchies in the German Empire.
