This is great (literally!) Spanish made Legion Condor Al Merito en Campana breaststar. The production is most probably from the 1970’s.
Many different designs are known of this star, but most have short sunrays, some even round. The here offered example is made in the style of the old German made stars and has much longer sunrays. It is of great quality, with a very impressive and well made design. (The reverse surface is like a mirror, very hard to put on photo).
In very good condition!
The tips of the star are at the widest point 71 millimeters wide. This is largest we have so far encountered on any of these stars! Very rare! (Mind that the smallest are almost two full centimeters smaller).
The reverse has two rivets that hold the obverse centre, and a long pin with round catch. It also has two extra pins for affixing the star to a uniform.
A great little extra is that the name of the solder, date of awarding and even place of earning are all scratched in: Uffz. Claus Hekt, 9.21.37. Reinosa. The star is probably a replacement star for a World War 2 veteran. It’s a lovely star in amazing condition, but postwar nonetheless.
Definately one of the better looking, impressive and very well made Legion Condor Al Merito en Campana commemorative breaststars!!!
