Description

Blackened Hindenburg Cross without Swords is mounted on non-combatant ribbon bow for female next-of-kin of fallen troops after WWI. Safety pin suspension. Reverse is marked "G. & S.", which likely indicates Godet & Söhne. The cross may have been mounted with a photograph as there are remnants of some sort of ancient glue or cement on the reverse of the horizontal arms. Black finish is excellent with only a few tiny raised areas showing wear.
