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.

The package arrived today, and the two items are nice. The Mother Cross actually looks a lot better in person than in the pics.

[From a vendor, rather than a buyer]

I'm delighted that you are happy with the badge and I hope you can sell it to someone who will value owning it.

I tried to sell it on eBay but they won't accept Nazi items. I then contacted several dealers via a Google search who mostly offered me 40-50 after some haggling. Most of the other dealers tried to conceal its true value in their replies and also lacked manners which doesn't inspire confidence.

Ultimately it's about trust. I should think that most prospective sellers have done their own research and therefore know roughly what their item is worth. You were the only dealer who had the integrity to concede that my valuation was approximately correct and I respect your comment that you can't offer this as you need to make a profit. Your honest approach is greatly appreciated and I felt comfortable taking the risk in sending it to you.

Thank you for a smooth transaction
