Deutscher Orden

Article about: I just need to know the name of this medal. Am sure it is real because it was purchased from the WWII vet who bought it in Germany near the place they were made. They came in a display case.

    Hi Kdziedzi


    It's a Deutscher Orden (The German Order):

    German Order (decoration - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

    Rare in the extreme...

    The last time I heard that these were sold or traded was 40 years ago. Like I said, they are rare in the extreme...

    I cannot comment on the originality of the one that you have posted. To date I've never seen an original example of this medal in real life nor did I had the chance to examine these closer...

    Hi Kdziedzi


    This set currently resides in the private collection of an American collector. It's the only original set of 'Deutscher Orden ' that I know that was ever sold:
