    It's one of the many unofficial Weimar-era decorations:

    This is the Mackensen Ehrenkreuz 1. Klasse [Mackensen Honor Cross 1st Class] awarded by the Waffenring der Deutschen Kavallerie. Founded in 1928 under the patronage of Generalfeldmarschall August von Mackensen whose portrait is seen on this cross, this was a blanket organisation that by 1933 included 572 cavalry veterans' associations totaling some 53,500 members.

    The decoration was instituted in 1928 and came in a gold and silver class. In 1934, it was replaced by a newly-designed clasp. The cross was awarded to members of the Waffenring der Deutschen Kavallerie, with award criteria unknown.

    For some German language information, see:

    Hi HPL2008,

    Thank you for your reply. I found other decorations like this one on the web, it seems to be a good one.
    Do you know its value? We can find about everything... It was bought for €13.
    Thanks.

    It's outside my collecting interests, but something around 100 to 200 Euros, I would say. (Niemann's 2004 price guide placed its value at 200 Euros, while Künker auctions recently sold one for 90 Euros.)
