The cross has a plain reverse with embossed manufacturer’s initials “N. & H.”. The cross’s ribbon suspension loop and ring are both intact.

The device concists of two crossed swords, attached with two pins pinned through the ribbon. The medal is maker marked A&S to the reverse. The medal is in very good condition with just minor signs of age.


Very nice exampel with rather scarce ribbon device!!
