Admiral Karlgeorg Schuster Ribbon Bar?

Post by Kriegsmarine Großadmiral » 11 Nov 2017 19:55

So I found this photo of a ribbon bar that is supposed to be Admiral Schuster's? Can anyone confirm if this indeed is his ribbon bar? And also help me ID the awards in the 2nd row. Thanks.

1st row:
- 1914 EK II mit 1939 Spange
- Ritterkreuz des Kgl. Preuß. Hausordens von Hohenzollern mit Schwertern
- Lübeckisches Hanseatenkreuz
- Ehrenkreuz für Frontkämpfer
- Wehrmacht-Dienstauszeichnung 1. Klasse
- Wehrmacht-Dienstauszeichnung 3. Klasse
- Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1. Oktober 1938
- Medaille zur Erinnerung an die Heimkehr des Memellandes

2nd row:
- ???

The known awards match Schuster.

2nd row:
- ??? *
- Königlich Bulgarischer Militärverdienstorden 1.Klasse (Großkreuz)
- Königlich Rumänischer Orden Michael des Tapferen 3.Klasse
- Königlich Rumänischer Orden Stern von Rumänien, Großkreuz
- Königlich Rumänische Erinnerungsmedaille an den Kreuzzug gegen den Kommunismus
- Kroatischer Orden der Krone König Zvonimirs / Orden vom Eisernen Dreiblatt, Großkreuz mit Schwertern **
- Königlich Ungarischer Verdienstorden, Großkreuz
- Kaiserlich Osmanischer Osmanje-Orden 4.Klasse

* Grand Cross with Swords of something. Since it has swords, a wartime award of a German ally, but I am not sure which.

** Both the Kruna kralja Zvonimira and the Željezni trolist had the same war ribbon. I have no idea which Schuster was awarded.

Thanks Dave.
I think the first one is the Italienische Orden vom römischen Adler (although which class? it can be the Goldenes or Silbernes Großkreuz).
Regarding the Orden der Krone König Zvonimirs, I think it is that indeed, because it was a more common foreign decoration opposed to the Orden vom Eisernen Dreiblatt.
And finally, are you sure about the 2nd to last ribbon being the Ungarischer Verdienstorden? The ribbon of the Ungarischer Verdienstorden military class is red? Check photo below. Could this one be the Ritterorden der hl. Mauritius und Lazarus (green ribbon, look at the photo below).
I agree with the rest, thank you.

The difference between the Merit Order ribbons is not civilian versus military, but rather the statute ribbon versus the war ribbon. The statute ribbon is green. Schuster received the order on the statute ribbon.
