The Mussert Cross with Swords for Bravery For Russia For Sale

Article on the German Russian Front Volunteer Awards (part 2)
(CS353) A Cased example of a Mussert Cross for 1941. The cross was issued albeit unofficially, to members of the Dutch SS for bravery and service on the Russian Front by Anton Mussert. Hitler forbade this award stating that the Dutch volunteers were entitled to German awards etc and so the award was withdrawn, but only on an official level. The award is of enamel and multi-construction and comes with its original ribbon and pin attachment. In the case, there is also the official Ribbon Bar. The case is of tw-piece construction that has had the top ends split on the corners and repaired with sticky tape which is removing the purple leatherette finish. The case should have been hinged but this has broken. The case shows wear and tear but still nice to get an original and has certainly done its job protecting the award. These crosses are becoming increasingly hard to find with more interest shown now with collectors researching foreign volunteers on the Russian Front. This has caused prices to rise steadily over the last few years.

BOOK ON "23RD WAFFEN SS VOLUNTEER PANZER GRENADIER DIVISION NEDERLAND"
This book is a detailed history of the 23rd Waffen-SS Division Nederland, the Dutch volunteer SS combat formation. Employed exclusively on the Eastern Front, except for a brief period in Croatia, the Nederland formations participated in many of the most difficult defensive battles on the northeastern front: Leningrad, the Narva bridgehead, the Tannenberg line, Dorpat in Kurland, Pomerania, and the Oder front, until the desperate battle of the Halbe Pocket where the remnants of the division managed to avoid total annihilation, escaping the Soviets and surrendering to American forces. In all of these battles the Nederland volunteers showed their valor as true Waffen-SS combatants, always in the front lines and always under constant enemy pressure
