$225.00

This is a consignment item. It is a post WW I veterans’ badge known as the Hamburg Field Cross (Deutsches Feld Ehrenzeichen). The badge was awarded to a variety of soldiers, not just those from Hamburg. The English name comes from the fact that the crosses were produced IN Hamburg. The badge has a silver sunburst on the obverse. Mounted on the sunburst is a white enamel cross. Some discoloration has occurred on the white enamel from wear, but it shows NO chips. Mounted in the center of the white cross is a metal oval depicting a German soldier trudging home after WW I’s end. He is wearing all of his gear, including his stahlhelm. He carries an extra bag, but no longer has his Mauser rifle. The decoration’s name appears on the reverse, along with Hamburg 11. Ges Gesch also appears, which is like a copyright mark. The badge has a fine swollen pin and measures 2″ x 2¾.”
