Title Hindenburg Cross, with swords
Nationality German
Period 1934
Sold

Instituted 13 July 1934 by President Hindenburg for all service personnel in WW1. Front line troops received the 'swords' type, other elements got it without swords, both in die struck iron with a bronze finish. Widows and parents of the dead got it in blackened iron. The reverse is maker marked 'AD.B.L.'.

It has its dark bronze patina with a little bit of minor discolouration to the front of the medal and there is also a small spot of minor rusting to the reverse. The ribbon is original and clean.

testimonials

Thanks very much for the bayonet. I am very happy, I think your photos of your items are great because nothing is hidden and you can clearly see them. (Unlike some other dealers.) Everything was as you describe, I will be keeping a eye on your site for any further bayonets for my collection.
