WW2 GERMAN LUFTWAFFE SPANISH CROSS WITH SWORDS IN BRONZE L/15
The Spanish Cross was a distinguished award of Germany given to German troops who participated in the Spanish Civil War, fighting for nationalist general, later Spanish Caudillo, Francisco Franco
With the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War in 1936, Germany sent the Condor Legion to give military aid to Francisco Franco's Nationalist forces. On 14 April 1939, Germany instituted the Spanish Cross as a decoration for the German soldiers that fought in the Spanish Civil War. The Spanish Cross was to be worn on the right breast below the pocket flap or, if awarded, below the Blood Order. After the death of the recipient, the award remains with the next-of-kin.
This Spanish Cross is the Combat version with swords. Has wear to the gold/bronze finish. Coke bottle pin and maker stamped L/15 for 'OTTO SCHIKLE PRORZHEIM'
Nice untouched original example.
