THE IRON CROSS 1914-18

FIRST CLASS PIN BACK FOR SALE

(CS629) A World War One Iron Cross 1st Class being manufactured between 1930-1945. This is the type that is often privately purchased as a replacement for those missing or lost awards. The cross retains virtually all of its frosted and burnished finish and has a nice black painted core. Scarce to find. GBP 150.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS1065) A 1914 Iron Cross 1st Class by the maker No. 4. The cross being of third reich manufacture, is in fact an imperial 1914 issue and is one of the official Steinhauer replacements. The cross retains all it's frosted and beaded finish and also the iron centre retains all of it's blackened finish. The soldering on the edge of the cross is very good but there are some gaps between the inner v's. It is not splitting as such, it is just not soldered up on these arms, as all four are the same. The black paint that has been applied, has been done via the paint dipping technique where the cross was finished and then dipped and then the wax coating to the silver frame was burnt off as the paint was hardened, which is of standard manufacture of this type. . The cross though is virtually mint. A nice item that was picked up at the end of the war and has been stored away in a drawer until now GBP 225.00 (UK Pounds)

(S109) A Nice example of a German 1914 Iron Cross 1st Class being manufactured for veterans in WWII who needed a replacement piece to wear on their tunics etc. The cross is identical to the WWII counterparts, being of a chunkier manufacture, with thicker arms. This particular example, although tarnished, is near mint, with the black paint being approximately 99% intact. The silver frame which is oxidised and burnished, has tarnished to the burnished edge, but the oxidised silver effect is still highly visible. This may well clean, but I wouldn't. Given for acts of bravery above and beyond the call of duty, the iron cross was an award even Hitler valued. GBP 199.00 (UK Pounds)
