A large gilt medal, 1 1/2 inches in diameter, with the Kyffhauser memorial on the front and the legend of "Eineinig Deutsch Soldatentum" (A single German Soldier) and on the reverse the German language designation of "German Soldiers' Day" in Philadelphia from September 2-4, 1939, and the name of the veterans' league, the Kyffhauserbund. The medal is on a short length of original black and white ribbon. Considering the fact that the Second World War began the day before this event when Germany invaded Poland on September 1 of 1939, this must have been an interesting event.
