This is a german World War 2 medalbar with the following medals:
- World War 2 War Merit Cross without Swords / Kriegsverdienstkreuz ohne Schwerter
- World war I Kriegshilfskreuz
- Kreuz für Kriegsteilnehmer
- Preussen Dienstauszeichnung Kreuz 1. Klasse für XV Dienstjahren
- Treue Dienst 25 jahre (loyal service 25 years cross)
The whole bar is in excellent condition and is as good as unworn. When “reading the medals” we see a typical german World War One veteran who did not fight at the front (indicated by the Hinterbliebene cross which is without swords, so NO frontservice) and further the Kriegshilfskreuz. He also had the Prussia 15 years cross for 15 years. Quite possible this was someone with only an administrative or supply job. After WWI the owner held the same civilian job for 25 years and earned as such the loyal service cross. For War important work he then also earned himself the war merit cross without swords in World War 2, quite possibly for the same work he did in the first world war. Maybe he was a chauffeur or again did administrative work or something alike, he also must have been quite a bit older of age, perhaps about 60 years or older at this time.
Finding medalbars with only crosses is quite desirable and also quite rare to find! Especially in this very good condition.
