Awesome collection!Hello All,
I'm still accumulating crosses to help my research.
I had to stop buying unattributed crosses I was just getting too many....even the better half was noticing the full boxes of enamelled crosses!
So I have decided that no matter how cheap a cross is I will stick to the ones that at least have a box or envelope.
I know that even when coming in one or the other there is a chance that they could have been subject to a post war pairing.
AnywayI saw this grouping and just had to have it...Almost a complete set.
The award certificate, cross with neatly sewn ribbon for wear, the invitation to attend the award ceremony and the envelope.
This is the first set of this kind that I have seen for sale!
Envelope is marked up for Schaurerte & Hohfeld
Has anyone got a collection of the blue identity certificates that authorised the cross for wear? To say so many crosses were issued there are very few of these id cards up for sale.
Any photos would be appreciated.
