Bund Sachsischer Frontsoldaten, Honor Cross II Class noncombatant version without swords. Niemann lists this version as 2.02.32 g and does not illustrate it. The catalog price for this version is also slightly higher so I assume that the noncombatant version is scarcer than the combatant version. My example of the noncombatant cross has had the swords expertly removed with only the portion of the swords in the wreath remaining. I am sure this was done for a noncombatant veteran who was issued a cross with swords or it may have been issued in this altered state when a noncombatant version was unavailable. My question is does any one have an unaltered noncombatant version that was issued that way; a cross with no evidence of ever having had swords? With no sword blade or hilt remnants on the wreath? Thanks, Fred

    Thanks PR. I also posted this same question on the two other leading sites for German military medals; OMSA and Wehrmacht Awards and so far no positive replies there either.
