Officially known as "Die Kyffhäuser- Kriegsgedenkmünze des Kyffhäuserbundes e.V.” ("The Kyffhäuser War Commemorative Medal of the Kyffhäuser Union”). Although awarded by the official Veteran’s Association, the Kyffhäuser Bund, this is a non-official decoration from the Weimar Republic era. The oval medal has a gilt finish that remains mostly intact. On the obverse, within a border of oak leaves is a torn flag under the text "BLANK / DIE WEHR / REIN DIE EHR" (meaning something like "Fighting with Open Visor, with Honour Intact"). To the left of the flag is the 1914 / 1918, and across the lower part of the medal are four lightning bolts. The reverse has the script, on the upper half "Für Treue im Weltkriege" ("For Loyalty During the World War”) and on the lower half "Der Kyffhäuserbund". Centrally located is the text "Aufrecht / u. Stolz gehen / wir aus dem / kampfe den wir / über vier Jahre / gegen eine Welt / von feinden / bestanden / Hindenburg" ("Standing proudly we leave the battle which we fought, more than four years long and against the world, Hindenburg”). Ribbon has a separately applied set of swords representing bravery. Great condition!
