This is a great condition and combination German World War II Red Cross medalbar (ordenspange).
The medalbar consists of the following medals:
- Iron Cross second class from World War I
- Frontkämpfer Ehrenkreuz with swords (FEK) indicating actual frontservice in the trenches of WWI
- Prussian Red Cross medal third class from before 1918
- Medaille der Deutschen Roten Kreuzes 1937. This Deutschen Roten Kreuz medal was instituted on 6. April 1937 by the “Präsidenten des DRK”, Herzog Carl Eduard von Sachsen Coburg und Gotha. It was only in use for a short period of time (from 1937 – 1939) and is the so called third model. It consistes of a white enameled outer circle with in the centre a red transluct enameled “Red Cross” with gold gilded eagle on top. In it’s claws it is holding a swastika wreath. The ribbon is attached through a ring that goes through the typical for this medal ball attachment.
A very interesting medalbar in excellent condition. The medals are in fact so tight sewn together it is not possible to see their backsides. It would be impossible to upgrade.
One of the finest medalbars we have had in a long time!
