The Memorial cross for combatants consisted of bronze and was made ​​from the metal of captured guns; between the arms of the cross was located on both sides of a wreath of laurel leaves . The execution of non-combatants was made ​​of normal oxidized bronze, and Kranz oak leaves represent.

The central shield bore the signature on the front of Wilhelm I Rex and the name "Prussia's victorious armies." On the upper arm of the cross was the royal crown. On the other arms was the inscription: "God was with us, to Him be the glory."

On the back of the royal eagle was in the central shield on a gun barrel. Depending on the theater of war was on the cross arms the inscription: "Hradec Kralove, the July 3, 1866", "The Main Army 1866", "faithful warriors 1866" or - in the version for non-combatants - "devotion to duty in the war."

After the death of the holder of the Memorial cross should be kept in the parish.

Thank you Christian and Birgitte

SA Dagger - Marked RZM M7/10 1941 for J. A. Henckels, very nice condition

Two commemorate medallions for  The 1941 Plebiscite In GAU Kärten
After the breakup of the Austro-Hungarian Empire large numbers of German speaking Carinthian Slovenes settled in Slovenia in the newly formed Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes (later Yugoslavia) after World War I. The Kärntner Volksabstimmung or Carinthian Plebiscite on 10 October 1920 determined the final southern border between Austria and the independent Balkan states.Between 1938 and 1945 Carinthia formed part of the Reichsgau Kärnten. When Nazi Germany invaded and occupied Slovenia in April 1941, the ethnic German Carinthian Slovenes voted on whether or not they wanted to become citizens of the Third Reich. Overwhelmingly they did. This plebiscite as called Die Kärntner Volksabstimmung 1941 and the rare commemorative Nazi medal we offer here was produced for the event. It has RZM number M9/238 on the back for the firm Schneider of Wien (Vienna, the second largest city of Adolf Hitler's Greater Germany).
