GERMAN STATES AWARDS

(M326) A German Marine Flanders Cross of die cast zinc. The cross appears from my point of view, to be a replacement item manufactured in the 1930's, 40's or 50's. I feel it is more likely to be from the 40's as it is of grey zinc construction and has no gilding applied that can be seen. The cross is of nice quality, and has no makers marks. The cross comes complete with a new piece of ribbon and priced with this in mind. GBP 45.00 (UK Pounds)
