Hi you are bidding on an original period WW1 Imperial Germany - Honour Cross of the World War (1914-1918) without swords, non combatants also commonly referred to as the Hindenburg Cross;
The Honour Cross of the World War 1914/1918 (German: Das Ehrenkreuz des Weltkriegs 1914/1918), commonly, but incorrectly, known as the Hindenburg Cross was established by Field Marshal Paul von Hindenburg, President of the German Republic, by an order dated 13 July 1934, to commemorate the distinguished deeds of the German people during the First World War. This was Germany's first official service medal for soldiers of Imperial Germany who had taken part in the war, and where they had since died it was also awarded to their surviving next-of-kin. Shortly after its issuance, the government of Nazi Germany declared the award as the only official service decoration of the First World War and further forbid the continued wearing of German Free Corps awards on any military or paramilitary uniform of a state or Nazi Party organization.

The Honour Cross was awarded in three forms:
DEU Ehrenkreuz des Weltkrieges Frontkaempfer BAR.svg - for front-line veterans, with swords
DEU Ehrenkreuz des Weltkrieges Kriegsteilnehmer BAR.svg - for non-combatant veterans, without swords
DEU Ehrenkreuz des Weltkrieges Hinterbliebene BAR.svg - for surviving widows, parents, and dependants of fallen participants in the war, without swords. nice condition some signs of age and wear with ribbon
