German Cross Order in Gold - Veterans Award Replica

Stock Status: In Stock

The German Cross (German: Deutsches Kreuz) was instituted by Adolf Hitler on 28 September 1941. It was awarded in two divisions: gold for repeated acts of bravery or achievement in combat; and silver for distinguished non-combat war service. The German Cross in Gold ranked higher than the Iron Cross First Class but below the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross, while the German Cross in Silver ranked higher than the War Merit Cross First Class with Swords but below the Knight's Cross of the War Merit Cross with Swords. In 1957 alternative 'de-nazified' replacement versions of the German Cross were authorized for wear by the Federal Republic of Germany.

This is a German Cross Order in Gold w Display Box, a reproduction based on version issued in 1957. It is superior quality, made of metal, polished smooth, 3 piece construction, is highly detailed with 1941 in the wreath, a maker stamp, and has clasp on the back for fastening. Comes complete with a metal display box.

Added to a uniform they are great for war re-enacting, as props for filmmakers, fancy dress/cosplay and make an excellent addition to your militaria collection as a great display item.
