Title Iron Cross, 1st class, 1914
Nationality German
Period c 1939
Price £150.00

This a privately manufactured piece from the 1939-45 period and made as a replacement for an earlier lost Cross from WW1. It has the circular spinner on the reverse, typically found on 1939 EK1 examples. The Cross is of concave form, traditionally manufactured with an iron centre and silver rims and back.

The Iron Cross was instituted in 1813 as an award for battlefield valour. Many crosses would have been lost in the course of WW1 and the troubled times in the Weimar Republic that followed it, hence these replacement crosses. This is not a modern copy item.

I picked up the parcel today ... I am very pleased I decided to buy this.

Wanted to let you know the items arrived today. Great job on the packing. Too often I buy very expensive and irreplaceable items from the UK and they get sent barely packed to protect them from the various postal services - appreciate you going the extra mile to insure it arrived in the shape it left. Thanks again, look forward to doing business with you in the future. Items were very nice, exactly as offered.
