A very fine original WWI/WWII German medal bar here, made up of a Hindenburg Cross w/ Swords (for combatants), a 25 Year Loyal Service cross, and a Bulgarian Comemmorative Medal for WWI (for combatants.) This bar is a relatively uncommon configuration of common awards and would definitely make a unique addition to your German collection. Condition is depicted clearly in photos. Ribbons show some wear but medals are in excellent condition. Pin and catch on the reverse are both functional. 



The Honour Cross of the World War 1914/1918, commonly known as the Hindenburg Cross, or the German WWI Service Cross, was established by Field Marshal Paul von Hindenburg, on 13 July 1934, to commemorate service of the German people during the First World War.


The (Civil Service) Faithful Service medal was founded on 30 January 1938, in two grades, to reward civilians in the employ of the German public services for long and faithful service. All officials, employees, and laborers at any level of the public service (local, regional or national) who complete 25 or 40 years service were eligible. 



The Medal for Participation in the European War 1915-1918 was instituted on 9 December 1933 and awarded to Bulgarian and Bulgarian allied force participants of the “1915–1918” war (WWI). It was issued to all WWI veterans including military personnel, non-combatants (such as medics, war journalists, and civilians) and relatives of KIAs. The medal was awarded until December 31, 1939. About 249,000 medals were issued (about 50,000 to Bulgarians and about 199,000 to allied forces) in three classes.
