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

This is an extremely rare pattern (46mm wide, as against 43/44mm wide for later issues) was made in the early months of WW2 and is maker marked '24' for Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Hanauer Plaketten-Hersteller. This cross was particularly popular with officers who did not wish to wear their Knight's Cross in the field.

This cross was particularly popular with officers who did not wish to wear their Knight's Cross in the field, so wore this instead. Both faces of the cross have been repainted. However, this does not essentially detract from what is a totally genuine medal. There is a small piece of original ribbon, somewhat delapidated.

I received the sword and belt this afternoon. Always a bit of a risk buying this sort of thing online but I'm very pleased with the quality of the sword and scabbard...
