    Default Order of the White Falcon Medal Bar

    Thought I would show this rarity. As a side note, the Hindenburg Cross is one of those very rare bronze strikes instead of the standard bronzed iron..enjoy

    Thank you guys.

    The Order of the White Falcon was awarded for civil and military merit. Swords were authorized on September 22, 1870 to distinguish bravery and merit on the field of battle. The Silver Merit Cross was usually awarded to junior officers for bravery during the First World War.

    I had some much better pictures that I posted, but I am having a time finding them. If I do, I'll add them to the post.

    Hi Alan,

    Until all of the roles are published for Saxe-Weimar, an ID isn't possible. When they are published in their entirety, it may very well be possible.
