This is a great medalbar with four crosses. These are:
- Iron Cross second class from World War I
- Frontkämpfer Ehrenkreuz mit Schwerter (the swords indicating actual frontservice int he trenches of WWI).
- Dienstauszeichnung für Offiziere 1825 (4. Form ab 1895) (long Service cross for officers, 4th form of the period 1895-1920), issued for 25 years in the Army.
- Dienstauszeichnung 1.Klasse 1913 für 15 Jahre (long service cross for 15 years of service). Issued from 1913 – 1918 to officers for 15 years of honor and service in the Army.
Very tight constructed, impossible to lift the medals and see the reverse, hard to find in this good condition.
Medalbars with only crosses are very desireable.
The owner of this cross was a senior officer (but low ranked), who had already before World War I a long career in the army.
Very good condition!
