Description
 
The Star of the Grand Cross of the Iron Cross was the highest military decoration of the Kingdom of Prussia  and the German Empire. It was considered a senior decoration to the Grand Cross of the Iron Cross.  The Star of the Grand Cross of the Iron Cross was awarded to the most outstanding of Generals who performed feats of leadership to the extreme benefit of the German state. It was awarded only twice, over a century apart, to Field Marshal Gebhard von Blücher in 1813 and to Field Marshal Paul von Hindenburg in 1918. Von Blücher's award was referred to as the Blücherstern while Hindenburg's was known as the Hindenburgstern.  These are very nice reproductions featuring multi-piece construction and sharp details.
