Kriegsmarine Spanish Civil War Awards Group

Recommended Posts

After about ten years of envy, a friend of mine finally broke down and sold this beautiful group to me.  He bought it from a well-known collector who received it directly from the family.  Sadly, the documents and a few other items were sent separately and LOST in the mail.  He was on the ship, LEIPZIG.  Since he served near Morocco, he received the Moroccan Order of Mehdi instead of that more familiar red/white ribboned Spanish award.  I have the child's name who sold the awards, so maybe with some time, I can locate the ship's roll and locate that name.  I suspect with the inclusion of the tally, he was enlisted.

Congrats Paul!  A great grouping handed down from one great collector to another.  Nice to “keep it in the family,” as it were.

Thank you all.  Some family jewels are best to stay within the family.
