German Cross in Gold

Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgThis is a copy of the The German Cross (German: Deutsches Kreuz). It was instituted by Adolf Hitler on 17 November 1941. It was awarded in two divisions: gold for repeated acts of bravery or achievement in combat; and silver for distinguished non-combat war service. The German Cross in Gold ranked higher than the Iron Cross First Class but below the Knight’s Cross of the Iron Cross, while the German Cross in Silver ranked higher than the War Merit Cross First Class with Swords but below the Knight’s Cross of the War Merit Cross with Swords. These go for north of 2k now so a copy is all I’ll ever have.
