    Imperial German Hamburg Hanseatic Cross 1914-1918 with Ribbon

    Item details

     

    A fine example of the Hamburg Hanseatic Cross awarded for military merit during WW1

    Constructed in silvered bronze with enamels the cross is in very good condition, the enamels free from chips or breaks, the reverse with just minor rubbing to the silvering.

    The WW1 fighter ace Max Immelmann was a notable recipient of the award

    Each of the three ancient Hanseatic Cities – Bremen, Hamburg and Lübeck – issued a cross of similar design in the First World War, differing only in the arms on the central medallion of the face, this example being for Hamburg.

    The Hamburg Hanseatic Cross was instituted on 10th September 1915. The city suffered 40,000 casualties during the war, from a total population of 800,000. The Cross was suppressed at the end of 1918.
