Title Iron Cross, 2nd class, 1939
Nationality German
Period 1939-45
Sold

This was the basic grade of Iron Cross of which some five million were awarded in WW2. The ribbon is period, slightly grubby. The general condition of the medal is excellent, but there are several small dings to the paintwork on the swastika.

Interestingly enough, this particular award is rarely found as a competently made fake. There were a few pieces made in France in the early 1970s from original dies with triple figure identical number maker punches, eg 666.

I received the Norwegian Krag bayonet and it is more than I expected. Absolutely beautiful condition. Thank you very much.

I should have written sooner, but I did want to let you know that the photos arrived safely and are absolutely fabulous. I could not be happier with them.

Thanks for the excellent service and great photos. I hope we have occasion to do business together again.
