(P288) A Rare Finnish SS Replacement Service Cross being an official 1980`s replacement. These were originally issued to the Finnish volunteers that served in the waffen ss and were numbered and dated. In the 1980's, an official re-strike was done to replace crosses lost by original veterans, for Museums and the Collectors Market And this is one of these examples. The cross has had the rivets glued to hold the emblem tightly to the cross. This type of cross is shown in the Finnish book entitled "Suomen Kunniamerkit, then in English "the orders, decorations and medals of Finland" by Jani Tiainen on page 217 and 218 where are write up and picture of the awards are shown, both the original and replacements. The book gives it a rarity value of 3, on a scale of 1-5, 5 being the most rare. A very hard cross to find. I have shown it next to the official award piece thats dated, and shown the reverse. Also shown is the page from "Foreign Legions of the Third Reich Vol 4 by David Littlejohn, that also shows these crosses

This officer survived the war as there is a 2nd citation to him to do with his service in the German VDS Old Comrades Association awarding him a silver service pin. This is also stating he is a major and was awarded on 27.1.56, which therefore means some research may well be possible on this officer although we haven't undertaken any ourselves.
