GERMANY – MEDAL BAR – ONE PLACE – HINDENBURG CROSS FOR NON COMBATANTSSKU: 02-413
After President and former Generalfeldmarschall Paul von Hindenburg’s 1934 death, Germany created a three-decoration series christened the “Hindenburg Cross.” The series was authorized for all German Great War veterans, as well as their fallen comrades’ family members. Some awards were also arranged for certain of Germany’s WW I allies.
Today we are offering a non combatant veteran’s one-place medal bar (i.e., for service in a support role rather than front-line combat). A Non Combatant’s Hindenburg Cross lacks the crossed swords sported by its front-line companion. Other than that the decorations are identical in appearance. The decoration is mounted on a red, black, and white ribbon. The silk ribbon is in excellent condition, although it does show a minor touch of soiling. The medal bar’s reverse is covered with a blue felt backing, with a pin and catch to secure it to a garment. It is a fine example, in top condition.
