The bar is intact with red felt backing and full needle mount on the reverse.
The “Grossherzoglich Hessische Ordensliste 1914” lists less than 70 living recipients for the silver cross with crown of the Phillip Order and makes this an exceedingly rare combination despite condition of the cross itself.
The bar would be from a veteran of the Franco Prussian War from the IX. Army Corps.
