(N299) A very rare Cased Iron Cross 2nd Class being privately purchased. The case is like a mini knights cross case with a cut out to take the iron cross and ribbon. This is off-white velvet similar in colour to that found on the 1st class boxes. This pulls out by a tab revealing a white base where the original citation was stored but this has long since gone. To the underside of the lid, you have the coat of arms and the trademark for a Dresden jeweller. The case is hinged and has a clam shell type opener to the front. The quality and construction is superb. The iron cross itself is a nice near mint example that is unmarked, but looks like it may well be a number 3. There is no splitting or cracking to the core which gently rattles when shaken. The quality of the whole set up is superb. Very seldom do these ones turn up nowadays.
