    Default 1936 Spanish Uprising Next Of Kin Medal....Confirmation

    I picked this medal up recently and I'm wanting to confirm my research. From what I have read it appears to be a 1936 next of kin badge issued to families whose relative was killed in the Spanish uprising. Supposably there were only around 300 of these made. I know this one is missing an eagle and it's ribbon, and it does appear to have been repaired. I would like to hear your thoughts on this piece as I value the members of this boards opinions.

    thanks in advance,

    Hi Richard, this is a standard brozne Spanish Cross without swords. The next of kin version was actually a medal on a ribbon and not a pin back award.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I don't have extensive knowledge on these awards, but I think that the Spanienkreuz for next of kin shouldn't have a pin-back system. They are supposed to have a jump ring soldered on to hold the suspension ring and ribbon? More like the KVK2. Are you sure this isn't a bronze grade of this cross without swords? I also think it appears to be bigger than the next of kin version, which is smaller than a normal Spanienkreuz, but it might just be a mistake on my part.

    I see the others already are on top of this
