Title Oberlaunstein veteran's union cross
Nationality German
Period c 1914
Price £45.00

The top element with the imperial crown above two crossed swords and oak leaves has the logo 'Deutscher Krieger Bund' for German Warriors League (ie veterans in a military sense), whereas the cross underneath has a portrait of the emperor in silhouette and gives the name of the district, in this case Oberlaunstein.

These crosses would have been worn in Germany right through the Great War to indicate patriotism and previous service, and into the 20s and 30s by the members of the various veterans organisations.

Its condition is excellent for its age and the ribbon is still nice and bright.

I wanted to thank you for the perfect service that you did selling and packing the swords. Everything worked perfect. At the airport I had no troubles at all, the airline took the package without been astonished at all.

Yes, arrived safe and sound, very nice, and very interesting. Have a couple of friends in the States slavering over the pictures, one of them loves searching old lists, etc. If I can tie it down more definitely will let you know.
