Ron,

 

Have you contacted Bill Shea of the Ruptured Duck?

 

He has a bunch of Rommel items that he got from the son.

 

He might be someone intelligent to talk to.

 

Contacted and received a reply....

 

He likes it...

Ron, I think it's safe to say that you are in the possession of one of Rommels ribbon bars.

Having researched many German ribbon bars and medal bars back to the original owners I feel confident that this bar belonged to Rommel. According to the award rolls no other Wurttemberger had these same awards, congrats.
