    Hello and welcome to the forum!
    The Deschler hoard was a large quantity of medals found in the attic of an old shop when it was being refurbished. The hoard cosisted of both classes of Kriegsverdienstkreuz - with and without swords, Eisenes Kreuz 2. Klasse, Ost Medaille, Mutterkreuz and Spanish (?) medals (I think that was all?)
    95% of the items found were in absolute mint condition with the other 5% being those that were on the outside of the hoard and exposed to the attic conditions. The awards were still in their original packaging, unopened since the day they were packed in the factory.
    I've attached a few pics below. I can't remember where they came from because I saved them from different places so if anyone sees one of their images let me know and I can remove them if requested.

    Wow! Thanks for the pictures Adrian! That would be cool to try an collect as much as you can from that stash.
