Here we have The Honor Cross of the World War 1914/1918 for the Next-of-Kin. The Next-of-Kin Hindenburg Cross was awarded surviving widows, parents, and dependents of fallen participants in the war. It is constructed out of a die struck steel base that has been black painted. The obverse depicts a centrally placed "1914 1918" surrounded by a laurel leaf and berry wreath, that is open at the top and tied together at the bottom, which is in front of a patte style cross. The full back reverse reads "W". The top has an integral bent over loop and ring which holds approximately 5 ½ inches of red, black and white rayon ribbon. The award measures approximately 1 ½ inches wide and tall. A rarer variant.
