HINDENBURGMEDALS #40072 Hindenburg Widow's Cross with Ribbon
The reverse of the medal is marked "FVH".
The original ribbon accompanies this cross, a white grosgrain affair with a red center and black edge stripes. Attached to the ribbon is a parade bar, although I am not sure exactly what kind. It looks to have always been with this piece.
A sound example here.

This Hindenburg Medal is a good strike to the Maltese style cross. The legs of the cross are outlined with a raised line and in the center there is a wreath of overlapping oak leaves. In the center are the dates, “1914, 1918”. These medals of course were given to participants of World War I. The reverse of the medal has the maker’s initials raised out, “CR”. The appropriate ribbon is on the loop being a faded red in the center with stripes of black, white and black running out on both sides. A good example.
