Title Iron Cross, 1st class, 1939
Nationality German
Period 1939-45
Sold

Marked 'L1' on the pin for Deschler of Munich. Slightly worn example, with no lacquer left, 90% original paint finish and some wear on the swastika. The clip has been repaired with lead solder some time back, possibly even an old field repair. This was the classic award for gallantry in both wars, next up in rank from an Iron Cross, 2nd class.

I am wholly delighted with the shako plate. [It] is a wee cracker. It is a real pleasure to have something combining both condition and quality in equal parts, and I simply could not be more pleased.

...acquiring this bayonet has completely changed my way of thinking on collecting bayonets. I have become extremely fond of the bayonet... Thanking you once again for the very professional way in which you handled the money [going to the wrong account] problem.
