GERMANY – KYFFHÄUSERBUND MEDAL
This oval-shaped and gilt-toned medal was for a veteran’s group or association (Bund), in which veterans joined to enjoy the company of other veterans of the Great War. The obverse has a flag and the dates “1914-1918.” The reverse of the medal has the name of the Bund along with a quote from von Hindenburg. This example comes complete with an original ribbon that is tied in a hint of a bow. This would indicate it was worn by a woman if it is indeed a bow and not just randomly tied. Also, the original safety pin with which this veteran affixed the decoration to a garment is present.
