This is a very interesting Saxonian medalbar with the following medals:
- Iron Cross second class from World War I
- Saxonian Military St. Heinrich orden
- Saxonian Friedrich August medal in silver
- Frontkämpfer Ehrenkreuz mit Schwerter (Hndenburgkreuz), maker marked with G&S (Godet & Sohne)
- Polizei Dienstaquszeichnung 25 Jahre / Third Reich Police Loyal Service cross for 25 year service
The whole bar is in good, light worn condition. The combination of medals is very hard to find.
If we “read” the bar we see a Saxonian World War 1 veteran who fought in WWI, where he earned the Iron Cross for bravery and also got around 1934 the Hindenburgcross for recognition of his service in the trenches (see the swords for actual trench action). The silver St Heinrich medal he got for actions “for the fatherland”, only 8299 medals in silver were awarded in World War One untill 1917. This makes it a quite rare medal to find! The silver Friedrich August medal he maybe got already before the war, as this was instituted in 1905, this is not possible to say. Later on in his life when he was most probably already towards his pension age, he got the Police cross for 25 years of service. It is well possible he already a policeman at the start of the century.
This is a very rare combination of medals!
