World War I German Honour Cross


This is a World War I German Honour Cross. This cross is in good condition for its age, although there are a few signs of significant wear here and there. Along the ribbon of the cross, there appears to be stains indicitive of blood in several spots. Additionally, the original latch or pin back has been replaced by a safety pin of sorts. The medal itself has some rusting and patina on its surface, athough the wreathe and years “1914-1918” can be clearly seen.
