German WWI Honor Cross with Swords (Hindenburg Cross)-Die struck steel with a nice bronze finish that is intact. Includes a portion of original black, red and white ribbon. We have a few of these, and the one you receive will be as good if not better than the one photographed.
History: This medal was awarded to all front-line veterans who where participants of WWI. The last one was awarded in 1944. It is constructed out of a die struck steel base that has been bronze plated. The obverse depicts a centrally placed “1914 1918” surrounded by a laurel leaf and berry wreath, that is open at the top and tied together at the bottom, which is in front of a pattée style cross, and above two crossed broad swords.
