Post war Oldenburg Friedrich August Cross, II class..........
Gents, would like to show you another postwar replacement piece of an Imperial period award/medal, this time an Oldenburg Friedrich August Cross, II class, on combatant's ribbon by St&L.
The cross, laurel wreath between the arms as well as the other details are all well executed and just as to be expected for an early post war piece. I would date this cross to around the early 1960's.
Prost ! Steve.
"The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
