IRON CROSSES 1939 1st Class
Awarded for several act of bravery, this award went on to capture the German nation as well as the rest of the world to become probobly the most widley reconized award in the world.

(MC643) An Iron Cross 1st Class being the rounded 3 type. This example has the usual Early type hinge, and pin but the hook has been period repaired and it appears the original pin has been strengthened also. The cross retains much of its original blackened finish to the ironed centre and the silver frame is nicely soldered around the edge. Scarce to find. A nice variation at a reasonable price. Price taken into account for repairs. GBP 450.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS659) A Rare example of a Cased Iron Cross 1st Class with a Card Case Outer. To start with, the cross is an unmarked example of standard three piece construction, which is nicely soldered up along the edge with no splitting or cracking. The iron core retains virtually all of its paint finish, and as such, the cross is virtually mint. This is housed in a flat topped box with a silver impressed iron cross outline to the lid. The box is the round cornered type and has no major wear and tear to it, other than the base, where it has a few scuff marks. This is contained in the card outer casing, which has the name of the award to the outside, as well as the date and the name of the manufacturer being the jeweller Robert Koch of Frankfurt Und Main. This manufacturer I have only ever had three of his outer card cases The first one I have, can be found in the book " The Iron Cross" by Gordon Williamson on page 121. Very nice cross to find. GBP 850.00 (UK Pounds)

(N399) A Superb Mint Cased and Outer Card Cased Iron Cross 1st Class. The outer case has the full awards designation and the maker's name Mayer to the side. Inside, the case has a rectangular press stud and magnetic hinge to the reverse. There is no wear or tear to this cross's case. When opened, the white undside of the lid is mint, the hinge cover is still intact with no splits and the white velvet base is clean and clear. The cross itself is a standard 26 and is marked as such on the pin. The cross is frosted and burnished and probably has not been handled by anyone since it was taken at the end of the war. This one cannot be upgraded. If you are looking for one of these, this has to be considered. Part of a group of items brought back by a British Serviceman at the end of the war and stored in a card box. GBP 1250.00 (UK Pounds)

(MC664) A 1957 Iron Cross 1st Class being the official replacement type manufactured for veterans to wear post 1957 who served in the West German army. The cross is of three piece construction with a non-magnetic core. The cross retains all its black painted finish and dates I feel, from the late 1960's to the early 1970's period. Becoming hard to find, these crosses were issued less than their wartime counterparts. GBP 125.00 (UK Pounds)
